Sweet looking whip mate. Is it basically stock? Look nice on the pictures.

Cheers mate. Yeah bone stock, only done 145 ks too. There’s a few wee things I want to fix up on it, but I’m pretty happy with it!

Rad. How's the interior?

Seats are a bit faded, and the rear vision mirror is broken, but it’s pretty tidy considering it’s age. I’ve got a woodgrain Nardi steering wheel laying around that I think I’ll put on it too

What do you think of the super-shift? I borrowed one for a day back in the '80s and found it quite fun.

Yeah it’s pretty sweet! It’s like driving a baby truck haha. I’m sure the novelty of it will probably wear off in a couple weeks though lol

There's a guy on here called MIRAGE-MAN, and the reason his car has these funny-coloured doors.......

.....is because his original doors were in good condition. He took them off to save them and put crappy ones on instead.

Doors shouldn't affect WOF as long as the rust isn't around the hinges. Good to see another Mirage getting some TLC!

Unfortunately, the rust is around the hinges on all 4 doors haha. Shouldn’t be too hard to fix though I don’t think

Its at the bottom corners of the doors. Pretty sure anything within 150mm of the hinges is a fail though yeah?

Yeah I thought so. Besides a couple of other small spots, the rest of the car is relatively rust free though which is good!

When I bought one of my cars it had all miss matched keys from doors to ign. Just took them to a local lock place and they changed all the pins to suit one key. Could be a solution if that locks worn to just change the pins out for new ones.

or just swap the drivers and passengers door locks around ;-)
