SteeleMX3: From across the pond, my 92 MX3 GS
Hello all, time to pick my worklog up here I suppose :P
I've got a 1992 Mazda MX3 Precidia, formerly a K8 1.8 v6, converted in February and is now a 200bhp KLZE 2.5 v6 :D
So I've done a few mods already, had her since August and I've enjoyed every day of it.
Here are some pictures shortly after I got her in August 2009:
So those pictures of the interior were taken when I had owned her for long enough to install the seats, get some mazdaspeed pads, and if you're wondering, I have scrapped that gastly knob since :lol:
Also, engine has not yet been given a right good cleaning, still have it planned but my international move may change that.
After the swap I made the change complete with the new KL36 ECU:
I bought a few interior goodies to spruce her up a bit:
The knob was put in but not the pedals, am saving those until I know for sure if I'm moving or not. I like them too much to leave em :)
I then ventured to reupholstering my own rear seats in blue vinyl, I like it but to each his own:
After that I crashed her right into a pole after exiting off the highway, so hit it at about…let's say 50-55mph:
I took her to a shop shortly after that and got it all sorted out for around $350, so about £200, with some good haggling 8) Unfortunately the hole in the floor wasn't ever sorted :(
Since then I've just been doing little things here and there, cheap mods if you will lol. Nothing big until I find out about the move.
I'll post some pictures of the little projects I mentioned above, here's one to start:
I should explain it's in electrical tape haha, but it's just a "test" per se and I'm going to go get some vinyl and do it properly very soon.
Alright more pics, just some more of he little customizations I've done. None are shop quality but I do me best so no harsh comments :)
Here's what I've been doing lately, probably about 8 cans of fabric and vinyl spray paint later and the result is:
I've also been to work on a new boot floor, got a 5/8" piece of plywood, shaped it to the carpet that was already in there, and covered it in blue vinyl. Result:

Did you spray the head liner or replace it?
2 cans of black "dupli-color fabric spray" for the floor mats and headliner. 2 more cans of blue for the rest. worked out to about $45 for the whole interior re-doing. worth every penny haha
