Reversing sensors were fitted to my True Red MX5 "Special Edition" from new. However recently one or more sensor has failed. So I decided to replace
them. I bought the kit with the black sensors. Despite what some people say, they CAN be painted. With the hole cutter supplied, I bored 4 holes in an old number plate, pushed the sensors through 1/4inch just to hold them. I gave the sensors a dusting with grey primer, then top coat, finishing with clear lacquer, and left to dry for24hrs. Now fitted to the car, they work perfectly. Yes, I know the MX5 is an easy car to reverse park, but you dont always see a shopping trolley in the supermarket carpark in the dark. Now I hear it.
