1995 Mazda Astina hatch
I call her Blinkie!

It has been years since I parted with my first ‘stina and there were so many things I wanted to try. The V6 I adore but the I4 chassis has soooo much potential. I've recently found the ol' 'stina but it's in bad shape so unless I find what I need to bring it back from the brink then this is it.
My intention to put this on the track so some areas may be more functional than pretty.


Current
Front straightened, painted and assembled.
All front lights working, new globes in high and low.
I received Skits’s short shift lever and have a short MS CF look gear knob to go on top.
Mazdaspeed sports exhaust.
KYB New SR dampers with Eibach pro kit, rears sporting brand new dust boots.
Project Mu braded brake lines
16x7 MS-01 rims, with GT-Radials fitted.
5-stud conversion with new lower ball joints and tie rod ends on the front.
V6 rear trailing arms
Yours Sports rear spoiler fitted. I'm not sure if it's wishfull thinking but I feel the car is more stable in the rear.
Extractors
Reverse sensor fitted due to altered rear visability.
Red Mazdaspeed sports seat on mazdaspeed brackets.
Type R mini skirts painted and ready to go on.

Joeee Loving the seat and the polished door sills 29-12-2009
Cosmo Dude Thanks Marc. Black would have been safe but with a little imagination I took a leap of faith with the red and I'm happy with it. I think white would also look good.
Plan B was to have it re-trimmed in dark green
