With the engine and cooling system working I decided it was time to see if the air con could now be fixed. After all this time last year I bought a new and the last one of the 1.8 MX5 air condensors so we might as well try. So with a bit of suction there was a comment well it holds a vacuum so let put some gas in to a erm theres a size able leak somewhere. Anyway the leak was foudn and it wasn't that new condensor thankgod. And so it was repaired. Luckily I had lef tthe second hand ebay set up I had stumbled across in the boot which he took the seal from to fix it.
So Friday morning not only did I have my top down, but I also had the air con on as well!
