Just a quick update the car is booked in for paint protection... the car panels/ work surface are getting the 3M clear paint protection film I had it on my RX 8 for 7 years and it works very well the new stuff works even better I got mine booked in to be done as soon as I pick it up from the dealers next friday and having the treatment done to the full front end mirrors and around the windscreen leading parts of the mazdaspeed aero kit a strip to the rear bumper it can still be polished to a high shine you be hard to see it on the front end of the Orange car in the above photo but the cost is worth the money ..... the new stuff can be treated with hot water if s you get a nick in the surface of the film just apply hot / warm water and the film will repair and still protect the paint work



sorry about the punctuation and spelling but you will get my drift ;)

Is it worth throwing a bit more underseal protection on it as well Tony?
I saw some horror pics of an NC the other day that had terrible corrosion on the underside in front of the rear wheel arch.
My NC is solid ,or at least it was when I was last under it but some cars have suffered with terrible corrosion so whilst its brand spanking new it may be worth it.
Looking forward to seeing some more pics of it.
Regards
Rob.

In the end CLIVE Mazda parts got hold of this medium size four pot set up for the car I like the gray satin look the rear set will be an easy fix now to paint

It’s still the full kit and with putting a little tweak to the base line in BHP around 20 or so these should handle it ok 8)



Thanks for taking the time to look :thumright:
