    Ah, that makes a bit more sense. I thought either I was going crazy, my eyes were playing tricks on me, or the "3 inch" exhaust was more like "taken out of a full-sized diesel rig" lol

    no, thanks to 3 different new front ends between my accident and the previous owner, the car gaps arent as pretty as they should be... but this picture for some reason makes it look way worse than normal. maybe the hood was slightly popped.. i dunno, it was taken so long ago haha

    time to bump an old thread, several updates that ill just put into one post....

    got around this fall to finally tweaking with the bumper and hood. i found out that the body shop didnt put the bumper on properly and thats why it looked the way it did. i took the bumper off and reinstalled it and the gaps on the hood/bumper are drastically improved, next will be to get the bumper/fenders corrected.

    recalibrated the o2 sensor yesterday (i didnt do it 100% correct when i did it in the spring)
    shes running ALOT better now. drove it over 600 miles this weekend going to Lancaster PA to see some friends. the Ultrashield seat is surprisingly comfy even on long drives.


    couple pics from Sundays Cars and Coffee.... my friends have way cooler cars than i do. Hillclimb MSM and a hillclimb ITB mazda3








    little 3rd and 4th gear pull. little by little this car is getting better

    bunch of plans coming for 2017. now that the car is finally running well, im going to focus on some aesthetics of the car to make it truly my own car.

    took me some time on Saturday and Sunday but its done now.

    as you can see, the oem spoiler did a good bit of damage to the trunk lid and i didnt have any reservations about drilling holes into it.


    got the middle strut mounted and thats where i took a break to eat dinner saturday and lost motivation lol


    view out the rear view mirror. im glad its tinted lexan and not solid black


    out and about getting breakfast yesterday morning

    i detailed the car yesterday. Wash, Clay bar, Polish, wax. It is no doubt the best its looked since i bought it.
    ran a test of half the hood, the flake really started to POP as i worked the polish on the car. i put the camera phone behind my poplarized sunglasses to that glare was cut down a little bit


    finished product, no editing on the phone pics.

    Looks awesome! Love that color.

    thanks man, yea the color is amazing. after polishing, i was amazed how much color shifting the car would do, in the sun it was almost copper and when the sun went behind the clouds it was definitely red haha
