muffler with twin tips looks very sexy.

the bodywork is in reall good shape!

the sedan has heaps of space under the boot compared to a hatch.

my timing is somewhere around 15-17 BTDC. it is right on the limit and is a little poo poo at low rpms.

love the look of the rear pod thingos. never really did before. but they are growing on me. might have to get some since i got a front lip.

needs (only cos i am a annoying opinioned d@#k):-
flying M mazda badges.
metal bit on front lip painted.
clear side indicators, the smoked looks out of place.
moar!!! camber!!!

Ok I'll add them to my list. But I'm looking at some coilovers when I get back to giver her more stance ow and I have 2 degrees of camber at the front already just can't see it in these pictures.

I'm going to plastic weld the lip on too an fibre glass that metal tab as I do agree with u Ryan.

Flying M badges???

This type of Mazda badge:-



I believe the current badge is the Eunos logo.

in sept 97, the badges on BAs went from the old style to the current style. bonus is that there are current style badges available for BAs if you have a 94-97 model.

So I spent the last two days pulling my car to bits.. There is nothing left inside her except the dash.. I also did a couple of jobs while I had everything out.
- I rewired the front door eclipse 6 inch splits speakers
- I wired in some eclipse 6's speakers in the rear doors
- installed some eclipse 6-9s in the rear parsel shelf
- ran the power cables for the battery relocation to the boot
- got my tinting removed and installed some brand new tint ( looks 100x better)
- installed my new intake pipe (thanks Cosmo from may somebody )

The car is still in pieces ATM will be reinstalling the carpet tomorrow and the seats if I finish work on time

Also have my new shifter boot and hand brake boots to install too.
