Finally got my rx8 alloys on, which raised her up nicely. Might get over speed bumps now lol. Need to start saving for brake upgrade tho as the standard ones look like milk bottle tops in the 18's

Good luck dude! Keep us updated! :thumbleft:

Last night I went into the garage and tried to turn the F over for a bit........flat! But then I have no idea why I expected it not to be lol

Will get the battery on charge Thursday/Friday and give it a run to warm :)

Took Minnie for the retest today, she passed, only cost me £200! :?

Rear discs, rear pads, both brake cables and the cost of the test! :?

And on the way back, she developed V6 clutch pedal bolt syndrome! :doubt:

Had the wife's F bleeded with new brake fluid, i changed the bottom part of filter box with the one from my silver F because the "hooks" at the back were broken,cleared and regreased the bushings on the bottom end of the gear stick, i had the cover sheet for the exhaust pipe from the silver one(the silver one is with extended shaft down) and put it in the blue one so it doesn't stick anymore,installed electric aerial(as it was manual and broken),i searched all wires for speakers and anthena controls and connected them, changed all blown interior bulbs,refiled with gasoline and cleaned it.
There is more to do,but we will see when..

Rear spats from V6

A little late this evening and a bit dirty, but they fit nice. 8)
I have a V6 strut brace waiting to be fitted in the F, but that will be later.
The strut brace is a UK import by the way,my friend from wich i got it says that he bought it from someone here in this forum. 8)

Yesterday actualy, i put 4 new winter tyres Laufenn LW31 on the 15'' wheels and put them on the car:

Image

Also put the 4 winter tyres on the blue F... :D

Image

And discovered why "blue" has no hand brake.. the drums are stucked.. they do not return as they should (the handbrake arms) and there's no pads(shoes) any more..
The silver will donate it's leftovers to the blue verry soon :lol: :lol:

Today i changed the rear brakes (swaped the drum brakes) on the blue F.
They were seazed and caused more fuel consumption, had loose hand brake and poor braking performance :lol:
So i used the leftovers from Anti(the silver F) and successfully fitted them to the Blue.
Cleaned backplate with brake cylnder on it, fitted the shoes and drums from Anti and it was just undo the hose and the 4 bolts of the backplate remove the old and fit the "new" in then bleeded the system.Easy.
Now she has rear brakes,handbrake V6 lip infront and 2 stripes with Bulgarian mazda club for the number plates..
Also pour in some antifreeze coolant. 8)
So the donation is done! :lol: :lol:
And i found out that there's huge battery pack for my cordless screwdriver lying in the engine bay :badgrin: :badgrin: :badgrin:

Today, as screen demister wasn't brill, thought I'd look at the motor. In doing so I removed the grey chamber alongside which held, to my surprise, the "cabin filter", took it out, cleaned & vacc'd it as best I could then put it back together withot touching the motor, result; heater & side vents greatly improved, now waiting for misty screen to see if demisting is any better. Don't know if anyones already been down this route but thought I'd share anyways. Cheers for now, Paul.
