What are your plans for your 3 for this year?



  • I'm ordering some new lights for the rear (the missus said it looked like a Ford from behind!) some new front lights and hopefully a front lip, then it's saving up for some coilovers and engine work.

    What's everyone else got planned if anything?



  • Oh, I've also got some sneaky work on the Pug when the wee lassie isn't looking :roll:



  • I like the rear look (looks like a big cat)

    Plans are

    Cam Belt
    Lowering it
    Sort the body work out
    Transmission fluid change
    Rocker cover spray
    Buckled rear alloy fix
    breaks fixed, While I love the viberation effect if hurts after time.
    Drilled/Groved discs
    Dying the inside felt or giving it a damn good clean
    normal stuff to keep it clean and what not.

    Funnily enough my brakes vibrated like f**k when I got mine too, but they got re balanced and now they're fine. (also had a wheel buckled too)



  • hopefully this year the plans are

    for the red 1.6 is
    recover seats
    body respray

    and for the white v6
    finish striping it out
    lowering
    new engine
    bucket seats
    body respray
    new tyres for front
    and much more



  • Nice thread idea :)

    Install rest of polybushings
    POR15 paint most of subframe
    Install Megasquirt with coilpacks
    Sort out LSD and install the gearbox
    Decide between turbo, supercharger or ITBs
    Maybe some coilovers



  • for this year im going to put in my ze, slam it with some bbs wheels and some arches to make it look meaner

    at the end of the year a itb setup if the funds dont run out….



  • rear window replacement ( havent forgotton about group buy guys in near complete)
    Might strip out some weight and get roll cage to tighten things up a bit as it seems to only get used on track days now.
    Would be nice to get some lightweight alloys on her!
    But most important thing is to get it re-taxed, moted and insured and back on road again!



  • Plans for the year are:

    Looks

    Smoked lights all round
    Tint rear window (Group buy)
    Paint Splitter to match bumper

    Performance

    LSD
    Engine Management



  • Nitrous

    Smoking the lights all round can get you a fine as it breaks MOT rules

    I found some stuff called FLYEYE which is sticky black vinyl full of holes like a net so the lights still look black in the day but the light shines through at night, I uprated all lights with LED's including some brake light bulbs I found online in japan and uprated the headlights with ultra white xenons and blacked out the headlights too yet it still passes MOT restrictions
    1 pack for 14.99 did every light on the car including headlights and looks the nuts !!!
    You dont get runs and you dont get grief from the old bill



  • Plans for my MX's

    DAYTIME ONE
    Buy whole top set for engine (inlets + rockers) and get polished or chromed
    Change Alloys
    Induction kit + resistor airflow sensor
    ECU remap

    PROJECT CAR
    dont know whether to concourse this yet as its a rare limited edition EQUIPE model I rescued and is not that bad on condition but it has a couple of dents and scratches that will be hard to remove without full respray and the paint is black with green metallic flake hopefully the same as the 323 and the drivers seat needs recovering as it is worn + torn



  • To fit :

    JDM front splitters.
    Red pinstripes on the alloys.
    Import size no. plates front and back.
    replace fog lights with custom spun intakes.

    To buy:

    Coilovers
    Mazdaspeed side skirts
    VJ Turbo to fit my 323 fanimold!
    FMIC and boost pipes
    management

    I have legal smoked bumper indicators, rear lights and side repeaters to fit. I also have a nice guide from nightstalker about doing the headlights on the inside and have some brighter bulbs for them. then i just need to look at the fogs.

    Also i understand people are having trouble finding smoked side repeaters…. I cant find them anywhere either, however my mrs has managed to buy me two pairs now! I will find out where from and post up if anyone is interested.



  • I'm getting these when I get paid (beat you to it Barry :P )
