    Auto weather seal to the rescue....................off with the covers & a good cleaning.



    Weather seal applied to each headlight cover.

    So another problem with the Italia, typical MazdaRoadster slow \ weak power windows, since I am going with a vintage minimalist build, I am going with manual windows..............



    and 1\2 hour later.....................one side done, and out with the LE door cards.................



    Too bad the MazdaRoadster market is flooded with LE interior's........lol
    Guess I will store mine for 10-20 years in vacuum sealed bags!!!

    Going to be installing Vintage Hella Talbot Mirrors next, gotta mark where to mount them, and still use the tonneau snaps..
    Background, I was going to utilize the original mirror mounts, but when I took the door cards off, and tried to find the holes, they had been cut out.................and glassed over...........

    I'm curious: how worried about you about fogging now that you've sealed off the headlight areas.

    I'm sad that Martin sold this car but super happy it is staying in our tight MazdaRoadster community!!

    I have that black NA6 dash here for sale if you are swapping out the interior to all black.
