    Hello fellow Z owners,
    I'm been with the Facebook page Gary organised and thought I'd join here also.
    I've a black 02 plate Roadster 2.2 with pale cream (white orchid I think) interior and 73K on the clock.
    Bit of a random purchase as I wanted to have a mid life crisis convertable car this Summer, and have not looked back. Put 2k miles on from May to the End of September and can't wait for the warmer weather next year. Have changed the font pads for Green Stuff ones (less dust) and oil (Mobil 1) and both air and oil filters, fixed the leaky rook problem on the A frame pillar seals, unblocked my fuel cap puddle issue and polished it to an inch of it's life. Any mid range tyre advice as both fronts are nearly on the limit?

    Welcome to the forum from mid northern Canada! Lovely car, sounds like your crisis brought you to the right car. I myself have not had a mid life crisis as my wife says I'm still in my first childhood. Enjoy the car and the ride along the forum, JIM

    Welcome from me too!!
    I gave mine good wash last weekend and noticed a fuel cap housing full of water so you may have to do separate thread on how to unblock fuel cap puddle issue?

    A piece of wire and compressed air ( or a bike pump) is all you need.;)

    Hi nifty fifty ....great name.
    Ref the fuel cap housing water collection, all you need is to poke something like the end of a wire coat hanger down the lowest point of the puddle, and you will find there is a hole .....even if you think its not there.....it is....and bingo!!! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone
