Most of you will buy an MX5 to strip down for your donor parts – you’ll see in the builders’ forum that you can sell the parts not needed to save a lot of money in the build cost.
I bought a ‘donor pack’ of parts on TradeMe which comprised nearly everything I will need to get the first NZ made Exocet on the road. I’m missing a radiator, the rear section of exhaust, the cowl for the instrument cluster, a handbrake lever and probably a couple of other small items. It was originally destined to become an MG replica – but not any more!!
I’ve had these parts for a few months waiting for Exocet NZ to get off the ground – now it’s happening, I thought it about time I get them ready to go into what will be the demonstrator Exocet.
