Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

Thanks Wozza. Got some body work progression, following on of my dechroming, I never really like the badges on the rear and annoyingly Mazda has put pin holes for the logo and branding purely to stop people like me from taking them off. Well I'm not going to let that stop me, badges removed, holes w...

Meanwhile, I got few more hours in yesterday on the car. After putting it off for so long, some of you will be happy to know I finally got the heat wrap off the manifold. Wasn't to bad of a job whilst still fitted to the car. Now that was out the way I got on with putting all the wheel arch lining b...

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

Lastly, whilst I had it running for so long bleeding, checking heaters and fans work, I then did another Oil and filter change swapping out the K&N filter for the genuine mazda filter. I'm looking todo a third Oil and filter change, but this time il be leaving that till I've done 100 miles.

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

So today consisted of fitting new battery followed by Coolent drain from the engine block then the rad. It all come out as new looking, no funny bits or any corrosion looking parts floating about in my drainer, so caps back on and refill, run up to temp and bleed.

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

More serviceable items and work done today. Decided to join everyone else with the Varta E23 battery, so I ordered a fresh new battery. Made sense really, as no idea how old mine is plus as I've renew pretty much everything i.e. coil's, leads and plugs, this was now the only real weak link in the ig...

Excellent build, thats one hell of an engine mod list! Makes me want to pull mine apart. Can't wait to see what power it makes, think I'm almost as excited as you and it's not my car, haha.

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

I got fairly stuck in draining etc, no real pictures to show, just oil dipping into a drain can. I started with my rear diff as had that down as the hardest, but turn out to be very easy. Much to my suprise, it poured out looking like new! Was just as clean and fresh looking as what I was refilling ...

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

Now, enough about bodywork for now and onto more mechanical things. When I bought this car it had apparently just been serviced around 6/7 weeks ago. There was a can of oil in the boot, pretty sure the wrong stuff to, I forget what it was now, anyway no biggy as plan on changing it. I've turn my att...

Re: G's S2 R3 C/W Refresh Build Thread.

I've also rubbed down and painted my spare bottom rear bumper trim that goes round the fog light area. Once it's on, should give it that little extra defuser look matching the rest of the kit trim.

Guess I'm over due an update, things are on the go again now the weather has perk up plus the bonus of extra sun light. As my last posts has been body parts stuff, il quickly add a little more on that for the minute. I've been nosing around for spare trim and managed to pick up a pair of complete fr...

Re: Rotor Shaped 'Halos'

There is a company in the USA that specialised in doing headlight conversions, you can have a remote that changes colour of the light and can project patterns to.

If you could get the indicator bar light to scroll like the new audis, that would be cool feature.

Re: New Supercharger kit

This isn't really something I had in mind for my R3, but if a kit was made I would be very tempted. I feel these cars just need that extra 100hp to go with the rest of the well put together standard set up and also will bring the power level a bit more up to date with today's standard in performance...
