Well shoot, by all means! FCM Bilsteins. 375 lbs springs in the rear, 600 lbs up front. I will upload the dyno plot once I get them (well if I get them, not sure about that yet!)

Sweet! Please deliver them to me at Hallett next month. TIA.

I found out last night that the set screw is stripped in my driver's side rear ground control thingy (technical term). I've been wondering why that corner keeps getting lower. :(

PS: If you ask nicely , I may let you drive my Miata with the FCM's... ;)

The rocker stripes. And I got the vintage Mazda sticker for the front bumper, too. I'd like to find some center caps that match, but all I can find are the lame colored ones that don't match.

9's. Some guy bought them, painted them before test fitting them to his integra, and then kicked himself when he realized they would not clear his knuckles without a decent size spacer.

I got the NT01's, and brand new wheels, for less than $300. Its only a pair though. I'll pick up another pair after the holidays.

1.8 engine swap kit.


That's a fun project. DO NOT FORGET, that you have to swap the 1.6 temp sensor from the back of the motor to the 1.8. There is a hex grub screw under the 1.8 cas location. That is where the sensor goes.

Which sensor are you referring to? I transferred the coolant temp sensor that was on the back of the 1.6 when doing my reroute but totally forgot about the one on the front of the engine in the thermostat housing now that I go back out and look at it again. If you look in my build thread you'll see I dropped the engine in yesterday, now I'm wondering where each sensor is supposed to go. Any pics to show what you're referring to? Guess I have some googling to do lol

Demon I Am
04-14-2013, 10:06 PM
There is a 1 wire sensor that sends the temp reading to the cluster.

So this is the 1.6 rear:

http://photos.motoiq.com/MotoIQ/Project-Cars/Frankenmiata/i-93MD748/0/M/heater-fitting-M.jpg

The blue arrow is pointing at the temp sensor. That needs to come off of the 1.6

and go here:

But now that you have me thinking about the temp sensors, I realized, with my reroute on the swap I didn't transfer the 1.6 water neck since I was just deleting the front water neck. This means I don't have the thermoswitch to activate my cooling fans. I'm assuming I can just extend the wires and install that switch into my spacer for my coolant reroute.

For a second there I was considering running my fans on a switch and then having my megasquirt control the fans when I finally install it, but if I can just put the sensor in my thermostat spacer at the back of the engine I'll do that. But I'm not sure if the sensor would be on the right side of the thermostat then, or if that even matters for that particular sensor.

The valve cover gasket can take two or three removals,specially if it's that new. It's SO MUCH easier to do w/o it! But yes, I too have gotten lucky to replace the CAS o-ring w/o removing the valve cover. Wish ya luck!

Nothing too special, just gear oil.
I currently have Royal Purple Synchromax in my transmission, and I'm not digging it. Shifts a slightly notchy, and could be a bit smoother. I've heard good things about the Red Line MT-90. Even though it's meant for more aggressive driving, I feel it will still give me an improvement over the terrible Synchromax.

Have you thought about trying to use SEM interior dyes? I've been thinking about that myself if I ever decided to go for the 93LE red as it may be a far more cost effective way to get the look since black and tan pieces are far easier to come by in great shape.

Ugh, and I'd like to post in this thread, but nearly every time I get goodies for my Miata I'm too giddy to get them on the car before I take any pictures of them. Even if I have to do extra work to get them into shape before installing. I so should have taken pictures of the wood handbrake I recently got as I refinished it.

Malibu Q
01-08-2014, 12:30 AM
Have you thought about trying to use SEM interior dyes?

No I hadn't. I thought dye was only for leather. If SEM dye worked on vinyl surely it would be paint, and just called dye. My seats are black cloth, there'll be no dyeing them.

I had thought about painting interior parts though. I'd use:

On hard plastics like the glove box door, I'd plastic prime and paint in colour matched 2K
On vinyl like the door cards, I'd use colour matched DuPont vinyl paint. This can be mixed by a paint supplier with a DuPont automotive tinting system. I've got a MOMO wheel I painted pastel blue by this method many years ago and its held up perfectly. Feels like vinyl though.

Keeping on thread, I got these bits today. Shin-Etsu grease to lube the door window channels. Evidently it's the best.
And Mazda Tribute washer jets. These produce a spray mist pattern instead of the two jets of water that come from conventional jets.

The front is used and there is a few cracks around where it was moulded in. Should be an easy fix though. Here is my front in the YJ advert.

I dont plan on fitting these parts on anytime soon though. Id like to complete my red 93LE/S-Limited interior first.

The black top has a ten inch long crack in it and the left gauge cluster mount is broken off. The red lower plastic is okay, maybe i could cut the top off a black dash and graft two together where the color breaks.

Car 59 is a 1976 Triumph Dolomite Sprint. No photos today

M2 Center Carpet rep. I'm pretty happy with it. I just need to modify the tombstone to make it fit flush. One step closer to my M2 inspired Roadster :)

Realistically it's something you could make, but I think the price I paid balances out with the headaches of making it myself. Someone posted a template of the carpet itself either here or on CR. So all you'd need to do is source the right size ring for the shifter. The one on mine looks custom cut as it isn't perfect, so I might source a new one to have it a little more precise. All in all, I'm very happy with it currently.

In a brand new freakin' tire too, barely 4 months old and MAYBE 1000 miles. Can't be repaired either due to its location. Ordered another new tire from Tire Rack and it should be here Friday. Luckily I'm off all next week, so have plenty of time to get it installed. What a waste of a perfectly good tire.

It's an RS Products meter panel. I've been after a KG Works panel for seemingly forever. The only difference I see between the two is that the ABS and low washer lights are amber on the KG Works panel while red on the RS Products one. Also have some needle caps on their way. Going to be really temping to to put'em in before getting some gauges from Adam.

Jimmy Vee.
Those lights. :shock:
The amber pair look identical to the ones on my Pit Crew front bumper.
I'd like to obtain a clear set. Pit Crew turn signals are about 72 mm outer diameter.
So...
Are your lights the same diameter?
Where did you get them?

Love that low park light conversion I see on your avatar. I've seen it on old cafe's car in Italy, Smac's in Ireland and Stoly's in America, all pictured on this site lately. It always looks stunning.
First in Australia?

These are the ones (http://www.europaspares.com/auto-electrical/lighting/rear-lights/land-rover-lighting.html) that I got, sounds like they are the same diameter as the pitcrews.
They are replicas of old Land Rover lights in plastic, I'm sure if you search around you could find them in glass.

I haven't seen one in Aus yet, but wouldn't be surprised if there is an original Barchetta or RSFS kit floating around on an import somewhere.

This starts when I tried to buy a used Mazdaspeed part from nengun (http://www.nengun.com/).
They took my money and I heard nothing.
After a month and few emails to which I recieved no reply, my yen were redeposited in my Paypal.
No explanation but :welcome:.
Rather than convert it back to my local currency I took the opportunity to buy a few knick-knacks for the Malibu using Buyee (http://buyee.jp/help/yahoo/guide) on Yahoo Japan.

nothing quite as epic but I had a headlight bulb blow last night so I picked up some Bosch 472 H4 90's on a 2 for 1 offer from a local store

left is the new Bosch bulb right is the one from the factory I believe its a rather old Phillips bulb of some sort. this was about knee hight. you can see its brighter and had a noticeable blue tint due to to design.

G Limited roadster seats. Dark grey suede inserts with black vinyl trim - about a 9.5/10, which is not too bad for almost 20 year old seats. 3rd pic is a better image of the suede insert material than the middle picture which is from the auction. Really awesome shape too. Just need to be cleaned. Props to Sean aka JDM Palace for getting them out to me.

How does it attach? I don't understand. What is the point?

JamieH
04-09-2014, 11:40 PM
Attaches by plastic channels hooking around the soft top frame bows, velcro wrapping around the folding arms of the convertible frame at the sides, and I've got the front held in place by the rubber trim on the front bow. As for purpose, cleans up the looks of the interior by covering the exposed bottom side of the soft top. Adds a layer of insulation which helps to keep heat & A/C in and reduce wind noise. The top can still fold down with one in place.

But if all of your top's bows aren't fully exposed, like the rear bow on my top, you may not be able to use a soft top headliner. I was able to get away with it thanks to my rollbar.

When I saw this two major decision has to be made. Ignore a pair of Tan Lotus Probax seats and kick the LE interior project off the side. So I have to switch gears to BRG completion because of these beauties. They are getting hard to come by. It looked like they were babied right from the start. The car had less than 13K on.

Yes I would trade these seats plus money on top for an equivalent condition pre-94 tan leather seats (waterfall) lol. But finding one on this condition will probably as difficult as finding a pair of original LE seats at a +9 state. Also the same reason why these babies sat in Ebay for awhile as I relentlessly search for other options including talking to upholstery guys then finally I contacted the seller and viola he cut me a deal I can't refuse, price of re-covering a pair of seats with a non-OEM tan leather. What I've learned from this deal is "do not be afraid to ask, just make sure your tone does not undermine the other party's interest".

JamieH

Aye, I'm constantly keeping my eyes open for the older, waterfall, tan leather seats to replace the bullnose seats in Betty. Seen a few pairs on ebay, but they've either been too worn out or too pricey.

Still jelly of those, they're so damn minty.
