Thank you for re-using our products. (My company makes the material used to make those signs)

And so I finally got off my lazy *** and started on this







And I used expandable foam to fill the gaps. Tomorrow I shave and shape everything down and then start more glass work.

What did you pull that bumper from? Looks like rx7 or something.

Last night I really thrashed the car around for the first time since after the install of the frog arms and doorbars and woah, the car feels insanely capable and all around awesome. Very tight, controlled and absorbs bumps now like never before. Two of the best upgrades I've done so far. Speaking of so far, here's what I've done the past few months:

Energy suspension bushings through out the whole car, front and back

Solid diff mounts

Mazdaspeed motor mounts

frog arms

Hard dog door bars

Racing beat tubular front sway bar with RB endlinks
