    LankyKiwi's Rally-flavored SP20

    Cert: 👍 Warrant of Fitness: 👍 Road registration: 👍 It's fully road legal now! Took it for a spin over the Kaimai ranges to the parents, about 1 1/2 hours one way up and down a fairly twisty road. The thing just pulls up hills, and it barely slowed down around corners. Gave Mum and Dad a ride...

    That album, Sound Awake is a good start! It's the most accessible in my opinion. Themata is a bit heavier and rougher and Asymmetry is a bit more Tool-esque and takes a few listens to get a grip on. Hopefully we'll see a new album this year too!

    Lots of awesome music in here! I dragged a couple of university friends along to die valkyrie when the NZSO performed it a few years ago. Hearing it all in person was intense! Also impressive was the absolute quietness of the audience during the performance. I got given an old pioneer SA-404...

    What have you done to your P5 today?

    We don't need no truck! 3.6M lengths of timber, one end on the dash, the other hanging out the back. Got a few funny looks but nothing fell off!

    What have you done to your P5 today?

    Bosch wideband sensors have a bit of a reputation for burning out , I'd go Denso as a good compromise I'm getting really tempted to put a push-button start in this thing, no more dodgy ignition switch!

    LankyKiwi's Rally-flavored SP20

    Will give videos a go for sure! Need to beg or borrow a better camera than my old phone to really capture the noises. I haven't heard the car from the outside yet!

    How to install Protege5 roof rack delete strips?

    Gotta pull the headlining out, then the roof rack strips unbolts from the roof skin. Go slow and steady with the trim, brittle plastic and soft headlinings are easy to damage. Workshop manual chapter 09-16 has all the body trim, check it out here: http://www.mazdaspd.com/manuals.html#body...

    What have you done to your P5 today?

    After a faffing around for a few months chasing a intermittent starting issue, replacing relays and starters several times, I think I've nailed the problem... The key barrel is worn out, just turning the key doesn't quite get the contacts touching, but pushing up and turning works fine...

    FSZE Protege5 Track Build

    Car sounds and looks mint! That track looks like a bunch of fun too. Rear swaybar looks good too, are these the bars that have the special mounts to avoid clunking? Also, grrrrr, stuck calipers on these cars are the worst!

    LankyKiwi's Rally-flavored SP20

    Neeeaaaarly there! battery drains installed, engine mount re-installed, a few small items ticked off and the seat mounts have been re-jigged. The inner front mounts required the most work, I cut the factory mount off and added a new plate. The outer front mount got a plate as well to cover up...
