Well i bought some Rota Grids yesterday and just bought some GT Spec trailing arms today

Well we didnt get to the wire tuck today but we have a plan of attack for tomorrow we spent most of our time trying to figure out how to remove the dash but we finally got it out. Im gonna paint it sometime next week. but heres a few pics of todays progress. Also put my struts back in and it dropped a little more just gotta wait for them to settle












While doing all that we spent a little time to install my Infinity tweeters. Turned out I didnt have to modify the sail panels at all I only had to remove the guard on the tweeters and they fit right in just had to line them up and force them in the clips but they locked in and are good.

Nice...

I am in the process of taking all that shit out of mine too..

I want to reinstall from scratch and the best way to get access to it, is to remove the dash..

Thanks man. Yeah i agree it is the best way plus im gonna swap out my heater core and maybe some other components under the dash while i have it out this way i wont have to do it again any time soon if something goes out. But you have gone a few levels above me and created a beautiful piece of machinary. Really wish i could get my car to your level but unfortunatly most of those parts arent made for my car and well no real big budget dosent help either.

But my car will look great non the less in its own right im gonna do it right this time and go as all out as i can while still looking subtle and and clean. No out rageous color scheme or flashy interior. But youll see when im done.

Well got my rims last week heres a quick pic


Also sold my valve cover today so i started polishing another its no where near done but heres what ive got so far
BEFORE


AFTER


Heres a pic of the semi finished product


Didnt like the mazda alone so i sat here this morning and hand sanded the dohc 16-valve very carfully


And heres the almost finished product. Its not perfect and has its imperfections but you have to look for them, and its not to bad for my first time, if i do say so my self. Im gonna clear it tonight then itll be done.

Thanks man and i thought about getting the 1.5 head i got some buddies in Trinidad who were talking about getting me one so how did it feel any noticeable power?

Did you have to do anything to make it fit?
