'96 Hatchu stock as a rock - 99xxx k's

Bought on the weekend & still has the cassette player

Been cruising all around your Site here tonight & hope to pester everyone for thoughts / ideas / mods etc...

Better leads, plugs - Whatever

Mods on Monday were repainted the wiper arms black & the brake calipers red.
Then detailed the interior & exterior - Hey it was a hot day !












Now there's 20 extra killawasps per rim !!

If I can find my EXTRA jack stands

I do have a set of 15" mags here that I'm thinking of putting on with more offset.

Having a bit of a cry here for just today I noticed some sun crazing in the middle
of the lower hatch garnish, just bad enough to detract from being perfect..

Wonder if Mazda still has a new one in stock ?


Seeing if I can get a "F" rear out of the UK !

Asty came with 2 "love taps'' & by the end of the day will be no more..

Only other bruises I've noticed are 1 on the bonnet & rear left 1/4, not too bad for 20 years !



These I'll have done professionally by a dent Doctor



A bit more shaping on the arch then done


Some people have shocking reverse skills

Luckily for me I've acquired some other skills over the past 33 years..
