hi first of all welcome to the mad house :)
are you using the Saturn drawings ref the front wishbones ? if so
ok so a search on ebay for mx5 lower ball joint gives you these
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BORG-BECK-BBJ ... SwzOxUXwCM
and for the tops ,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fits-BMW-5-Se ... SwHoFXt~6t
also a pair of m14 x .5 nuts ( for lock nuts on the top)
Now how about a few pics for us poor depraved fellow builders ????? we like pics we do :)
seriously any questions just shout and we will do our best to help out, good luck with the build,

should have said have a look through my build thread "progress at last" you will see how I worked around some of the problems encountered.
what mx5 are you using as a donor?

do you have the Saturn plans? as these detail the wishbones and changes to the standard Haynes chassis for the mx5 running gear
If you need more photos let me know or even if you need a copy of the Saturn build I can send that
Gary (looking forward to the photos)

Thank you.
If you can send me the plans for the Saturn front wishbones
that would be most helpful.

Have tried to upload some photos,not having much success.
