swift jimmy 01-12-2011 10:03 AM

http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_...7_original.jpg

Ben 02-12-2011 05:28 PM

Looks way better... Me thinks i need to get one!

swift jimmy 04-12-2011 11:20 PM

Ben - do it !!! changes the whole rear of the car especially if you have a short antenna

swift jimmy 04-12-2011 11:22 PM

Another small update from the work on the weekend

- Removed angry birds from tow hook
- Removed front ozmazda sticker
- Removed broken foglights (currently driving around with no foggies)
- Charged over pod filter
- Fix Sub
- Started sanding back and prepping the lip
- ordered the AAC Protege Bumper Fix brackets

smurfy 05-12-2011 06:54 AM

liking the wipersss :)
ohh i member the last time i seen you was ages ago, you were parked at menai, bumperr as some pretty bad sag going onn :(

swift jimmy 05-12-2011 09:17 AM

smurfy - yeah it was incredibly bad.. then bought the oem mazda clips.. front bar sat beautifully for about a month and now starting to sag again :(

Seeing the front lips is going on better get the brackets to hold the whole bumper on aswell :D

Ben 05-12-2011 10:16 AM

How much was the wipers? From rupe? I need to buy some clips for my front bar too :(

swift jimmy 05-12-2011 10:58 AM

Ben - front ones were about $150 for the set.. wont be here till X-mas and the rear was about $84 with shipping

I would recommend just buying the AAC brackets straight up cause the $50 for the mazda clips is just a rip off
