Hey guys..quick update, and question...

WIRECARE SLEEVING--ordered
CLUTCH KIT--ordered
FLYWHEEL--ordered (thanks again for the lead on the resurfacing)

Gonna get the CAS o-ring & Rear Main Seal from Mazda (hopefully)

Clutch line--what do you guys think of this?? Thoughts? Experiences? Etc
http://advanced-autosports.com/prod01.htm

If not I'll just get from Goodwin, Moss, etc.. Please let me know so I can order asap since I'm already cutting it close w/ UPS ground..

That leaves the welder & the diamond plate...

Again, sorry to be a pain, I just really want this to be a success and not get held up over something petty...Much appreciated as always!

Just get the CAS and rear seal from Advance Auto. I just bought a rear seal today at Advance Auto. They have 5 in the Miami warehouse. I am picking it up tomorrow. A Mazda dealer is going to cost you big bucks and may/may not have the part.

I forgot about that one. That clutch line is actually really good because you eliminate the bracket which is a PIA to get back on. I would have gotten that one had i known about it.

If you cant find the diamiond plate let me know. I'll pick get you one. Just need to know if you want black or stainless. Let me know.

I called Advanced yest about the rear main and they said id have it 1 day from when i order. Ill call about the cas o ring as well. Im gonna give my friend a shout who "supposedly" knows someone there...If that falls thru advanced it is.

That clutch line looked great to me too...Im gonna call advanced autosports tomm and order that clutch line, if they are on backorder or something then prob go with one of the norm ones

Phil thanks for the offer, I plan on picking it up this Sat. from true value...If it falls thru for some reason I might take u up on that offer. I didnt know they had it in Black! Is it TrueValue that has both colors??

Thanks guys!

Only drove the car like 3x's before starting working on it...didnt notice anythign wrong with anything, so I guess I'll leave it then..

Cool so the list is pretty much finalized then?

You guys have any questions about what I did so far? Maybe to pre-troubleshoot anything?
Far as I'm concerned everything I've done is good, my oil drain line is a little long, but still it doesnt go "up" at any point to mess with the gravity draining...Its SS otherwise I would've shortened it a lil bit...

Other than that i think everything is fine so far...
