Minty Fresh Eunos


Another weekend, and some more time spent working on Mint’s crazy looking Eunos. After selling his Nissan S15 (Minty Fresh S15) at the turn of the year, a new project car was bought. A JDM Import Mazda Eunos Roadster. Straight off a pile of new parts was collected before work could begin. First was a set of HSD coilovers, a set of new brake discs, Bride seat and a set of Takatas. A set of wheels was purchased on a trip to Japan. 2 8×14″ Longchamps & 2 8.5×14″ Watanabes complete with a full set of Bridgestone RE-01 R’s. Obviously with wheels that wide and a set of 4×100 to 4×114  pcd converters some arch work needed. After spending a few hours rolling and streching the arches the wheels were on. Unfortunately the rural Aberdeenshire roads were starting to take there toll on the tyres due to scrubbing, so a 3″ arch cut and reworked set of Jun style arches were installed. After a battle with a set of tractor tyres at a drift day the car needed a bit of sorting out. A bit of straightening and some new paint was in order to the front end. So this weekend we set about spraying the rest of the car changing the colour from red to matt purple. Car now looks better than ever!! Only a few more body mods to do over the coming weeks, then it’s on with the next project car!!! Can’t wait!
