funny, i was told today by a buddy he wanted to punch me in the dick repeatedly and punch babies.

First Wash after being sealed from the paint job and waxed. I'll be bringing the Rocketeer to the Roar Before this weekend at Daytona, the Classic Mazda meet in Orlando on the 16th with the 10ae weather permitted, and the actual Rolex 24

Car looks fantastic.
Curious: since you had a re-paint, why not have the license plate dookie removed at the same time?

Not sure if you would be affected, but I hear putting wax on fresh paint can cause bubbles from the fumes releasing from the paint

Car is looking gorgeous though

Well, I wanted OEM and not a Chinese made Bumper which I have been told to stay away from because of the details already made into the car. (not perfect fitment)

Thought about shaving the license plate holder but as I have seen others do the same, the nose looks smooshed in and droopy. The bumper also has a bigger "modern mazda smile" too. Last but not least, after a year, two, three, the filler starts to separate from the bumper underneath the paint and thats inevitable because of it flexing in highway speeds and daily driving. I had the discussion with Clay Deen from Decaudellas and he advised against it. I didn't want to bring the car back to him yearly if I didn't have too to fix the lines around the plate frame. It would bother me so much how detail oriented I am on the car itself.

@Girz0r- the car was painted 2 months ago. The paint has cured already and it was just recently sealed and waxed last week.




Thanks for the compliments

Makes sense. I'd probably want to avoid filler on a rare OEM bumper too now that I think about it.

Thanks Johnny.

Today I replaced the Spark plugs, Wires, and oxygen sensor with all new oem.

I did get all 9's for the spark plugs and ripped out the magnecore wires and installed ngk tight fitted spark plug wires.

I also installed a new OEM O2 sensor because It hadn't been replaced since 93.


Pics of the spark plugs. Now I think these were new as of 01/13/15 from my records of receipts. which is no more then 13k miles in my documents.

I've driven that many miles last year and driven 19k miles since 09/01/14. I have done multiple autocross events since the last plugs were replaced. I also had ngk 7's and ngk 9's


I used Pettit Racings Premix which I've already switched over to Idemitsu's Premix.
