Few days after I got it...
First photoshoot a few days later...
First MOD...Blacked out Rear Valence...
Second MOD...No Smoking...
Decided to get rid of the stock CD Player...
Few more pics with a friend...
Decided to start blacking out...did the tails/side marker lights/fogs/emblems...also went with 5% tint on the windows and 30% on the front...
Decided to pick up some audio and decided to go with the JL10W7 along with a Kicker ZX1000.1...also had the Boston Acoustic Components hooked up to a Kicker ZX650.4 amp...
Got tired of the radio pocket so decided to go with the Mazda block off plate...
Decided to pick up a Racing Beat exhaust/MSP Engine Cover/Injen CAI...
Went with an S2000 antenna/Mazda3 5-Spokes/Blacked out headlights/DG CF Mirror Covers/Foglight Deletes/Tribute Nozzles...
Picked up a DG Interior Package along with Momo E-Brake Handle/Boot...B&M Short Shifter/Corksport Bronzoil Bushings/Mazdaspeed Protege Shift Boot/Knob/Dave B Guage Rings..
Got a new dog (that rides in the car) so decided quickly after I got it to sell most of the DG CF pieces...replaced with a set of Mazdaspeed3 cloth seats I picked up from Rogue...
Picked up a GT Spec trunck cage along with the ladder bar and lower tie bar...also got a MSP rear sway bar and Kenwood DDX7015 headunit...
Got a lead on a set of Speed3 leathers, so I decided to replace the cloth ones...not only that, but I got the rears with it as well...also decided that the Audio Setup was just to much bass for me and took it out...picked up a Double-Decker leather armrest and EDM Single DIN slot...got rid of the Kenwood as well and installed another Pioneer headunit and Pioneer GPS...
Dropped the car on Tein S-Techs and had the Mazda3 rims powdercoated black...
Wrecked the car and blew the motor...we won't get into the problems with the motor I got as a replacement though, but needless to say the car isn't running still...I did however get a Fidanza Flywheel, port/polish the intake manifold, remove butterflies, got a Spooled Up Racing Header, powdercoated Valve Cover, ARP head studs...
Decided that I needed to upgrade the brakes, so went with the MSP brake upgrade, Speed3 rims with 215/35/18 Pirelli P-Zero Neros, Speed3 exhaust, rear wiper delete, DG CF AutoEx replica grill...and installed the new system consisting of an Alpine PDX-5, DIYMA 12" sub, Focal 6v2s Components...also picked up a 3.5 MSP front lip (Not Installed Yet)...
I did have the car running for like 4 days and made it to one day of EECMM before snapping a camshaft in half, so here are a few pics of how it sits right now...
Thanks to all for looking and I will do my best to update this thread as everything goes along...if you have any questions/comments feel free to post...hope you guys like what I have done to the car...
