Post My Full Respray
Image

Well here it is, had all my rusty bits done on the arches, windscreen taken out an all rust done there too, lookin very nice now i must say :D

Got loads of plans for the new year now, S/S manifolds an a few more engine mods, once i finish moving to ireland i might even KL-ZE it, getting some 18's in january too then gonna start hunting for a Carbon fibre invader hood :D :D

What do you think?

This is the colour when i got it so more than happy with the lack of faded red now :D

oh an a free plug for the club on my rear windows an my numberplates ;)

Looking very clean mate, like the day it left the factory !! 8) keep up the good work mate. May have to visit the spray booth for a clean up also !! Paint is starting to show its years now. Did spacers go in ok on manifolds, any benifits felt ??
Take it easy !

I love the red, but the stock red just faded sooo badly. Well the green and terquise did too.

Anyway, your car looks great!! I love a fresh paint job 8)

whats beter about it is all that work only cost me £850 all told which is really cheap, i was quoted well over a 1000 by another place!!

Phenolic spacers arent fitted yet cause i havent been home yet from ireland to fit them, along with my PRM intake :(

Would you believe i havent even seen my new paint in the flesh yet!! :evil: :evil:

Hey pedro, its been a while.

Paint job looks fantastic. Bet you cant wait to see it properley.

Cant quite remember who I got the C/F Hood from. But its the same guy who did the hoods for the group buy a while back.

They look really good, once you get them on. Loads of people stop to take a look at it. They make the car a real head turner.

Hope the move goes well.

That paint job looks real nice. I was going to do the same thing by putting the new Mazda logo on the bonnet. I want to respray my black MX-3 the same colour, how much would it cost in the UK?

Oh yeah, and what Mazda car did you get that badge from?

Nah, that's the new style. The old ones are the ones that come on MX-3's as standard.

The badge is from the New shape MX-5 and it just about covers the holes in the bonnet, i hated my old Mazda badge so it had to go!!

It's from the new Mazda MX-5?! I was just wondering wouldn't the one from the old MX-5 fit too?

I'm sure their the same size, and getting one from the new MX-5 would be more exspensive than getting from an old one. Like from a scrapyard.
