So a year has passed since I bought the SP and I have done all mods I planned at the beginning (and more).



I finally got around to replacing a blown blub in the air con controls back lighting





New bosch front wipers, the other aero set I bought awhile ago were spent.





The final mod, personalised plates.













Front tyres were already looking pretty worn compared to the rear after 3,000kms so took all the wheels off and properly cleaned them, then put the fronts on the rear etc...











After 5 years in the family, what was once going to be my next car, the MX5 has been sold. (Still the second funnest car I've ever driven after another MX5 :P)

Bought a 35mm prime lens... so MORE car photos.













Have had brake pedal pulsation for ages so replaced the front pads and discs, all fine now.



After bedding in.








Got up at 4:30am to go for a drive a few weekends ago, was great.


Proud of this thing.


A new car might be on the horizon and I'll be going through this adventure all over again, stay tuned.

My final post on this thread ;( Pic heavy, as usual.

So after buying another car mid way through May, I started preparing to sell the SP.

I took it to its last ever meet with the 323 crowd.





Below are 2 awesome shots from Marc G Photography which were done with a home made light box at the meet.





Then I went up to the sunshine coast.







The day after, I detailed the car and went out for my last ever drive of my SP before removing all the mods and going back to stockish form.

Then it came to spend an afternoon of removing mods.

Firsty the short shifter went.





Then exhaust, sway bar, wheels...



Then reinstalled the fog lights.





The weekend after that was done I went and took the carsales ad pics.





The car was only up for a week until it had a buyer. I immediately messaged my 323 mate from back in highschool that we should have one last meet up for old times sake.
This was the last time I drove my SP20












....

Bye bye Mazda, I'm just gonna end this thread by saying you were an awesome little car, but you were so much more to me than that.


Zoom Zoom forever!
