Alright, no pics of the beast yet but they ARE coming soon..possibly tomorrow pending my memory :P
in the meantime however I've been to pick 'n' pull and found MINT, and I repeat, MINT factory floor mats. I also found very nice rear seats and a very nice condition boot cover which will be a very fun project with many thanks to Nd4SpdSe for the inspiration. I actually took pictures of the boot cover and seat as I took them inside for my little projects. Enjoy these as much as you possibly can :lol:


Image

Just some elbow grease and they'll be golden (or blue I mean).
Image

Some OEM rear seats for 10 smackers and I've got the "relative" beginnings of my blue and black themed interior!

haha yah the mint will "magically" be swept away...

anyways, been back down to Pick n Pull to further terrorize this lonely MX3 doner I've been picking and pulling apart. I got the rest of the back seat, the drivers side headlamp (bracket is broken on mine), the driver's side mirror with frame, and some very nice rubber seal for the doors! I couldn't believe the shape of the shite in this 17 yo car!! Check it:

And finally, pics of the beast...no interior shots yet, sorry!!

Post Re: SteeleMX3: my bone stock 1992 MX3 Precidia GS
you do realized i'm a complete pic wh0re and need like pictures of EVERYTHING right? :lol:

so here's my "help" on your to do list
- front bumper (want one with fogs) - keep in find you SHOULD find a euro bumper support so everything fits perfectly and your not doing a hack job, http://www.mx-3.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=71740, fog lights: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=71933&start=0 Bumper: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=71297 or http://www.corksport.com/j-spec-mazda-p ... inted.html
- rear bumper - what's wrong with your current one? it looks fine in that pic
- Side skirts - What side skirts you looking for? OEM? after market? (OEM full length's are very rare and mini sk's are difficult to obtain) or this: http://www.corksport.com/corksport-mazd ... kirts.html
- muffler - you mean full exhaust right? :lol:
- Front lip - if you don't find one by mid-may i got a couple i could sell
- New tail lights - Altezza's? (ebay one's)
- Paint seat rails - attention to details, i like it!
- Paint speaker covers - don't go too overboard XD but really, to each it's own
- LED dome light - i might be able to help you here, there's lots of LED stuff here in Taiwan for cheap....er, not bad price =P
- gauge cluster - gauge dials? you can get the one's i showed you on ebay, or you can get these visual orgasm's (canada, using metric speed FTW) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWAX:IT or http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0532159983
- Air Conditioning - come on man, just drive faster with your window open :D (lol, it can be rough, i just man it out XD)
- New MS oil cap - real MS one's? http://img187.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/user ... y10367.jpg or http://rupewrecht.com/forsale/fs_ms_oilcapblacknew.jpg (Come in yellow, red, blue, silver and black.)
- Blue powder coated valve cover - let me know if you know good powder coaters with good prices

Post Re: SteeleMX3: my bone stock 1992 MX3 Precidia GS
thanks for the info! I WILL be doing it right and going with the support like you said, I'm going for OEM side skirts, if it doesnt cost me more than my car I will be doing the full exhaust lol, I'd defo be interested in that front lip, I AM going for the altezzas but thatll most likely be one of the last things done, I'm not entirely sure about the speaker covers just yet but I'll make the final decision when I get to it haha, I would LOVE a cheap....er, a not bad price LED dome light from Tawain..ballin :) , I have decided on the first set of gauge dials you showed me...very nice :2thumbsup: , I already have and have thourouly cleaned and prepped an AC condenser so I'll have to see where to go with that one, and I have located one of those rare MS caps.

phew, that was a mouth full (no pun intended) :lol:
