Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

Aww no love; actually i'm holding this second post just in case I run over some!


Good news is my Speed3 wing shipped yesterday, should be here sometime next week I think.
Waiting on response from Rachel at nextmod about my Autoexe grill, 'technically' should be shipped this week, dunno yet.

Upcoming mods..
Wrapping some plastic interior trim with white carbon fiber!
reeeeally hoping it comes out.

So my wrapped taillights, my speed3 wing, and the white trim should be finished before next weekend (or so I'm hoping :/)

Still no word from Rachel at Nextmod though, I don't know what they're up to.

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

decided it would be a good idea to change the oil and rotate my tires before I get and put on the wing.

Bad decision.







going to buy a new oil filter housing now. fml

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

Just a tip for anyone changing their own oil.. get the real mazda oil cap wrench instead of a 76mm like people say.. Mazda uses a 75.5mm go figure....

Anyways, after however many hours we got the oil situated; and I just got back from my post office with this!!

One little scratch but nothing a little bit of sand paper and touch up paint won't fix!
thanks AGP!





Also word from Peter and Nextmod is my autoexe grill has shipped.. no idea where it is or when it will arrive though.
Also just got word from .. the SR*S guy.. Kevin? I think, I don't know his name. So working on that.

Think the mail came today so no word yet on my new taillight and white carbon fiber vinyl. It should be here sometime this week.

@halo0 uhhhh rhombus bwhahah; the mazda commercials I guess. Father thinks it looks dumb; he always designed the vinyls for the pace cars when we had Road Atlanta so it reminds him of that; I will love it even more when I get this wing on it!

hah.. worst camera mount ever; I got bored and discovered one day in the dorms my vacuum mount from www.filmtools.com can in a MacGyver way connect to my super cheapo tripod.. I just haven't had the need to get a legit setup (two vacuum mounts with grips and a painters pole) which costs like $200 to set up; I just .. haven't needed one yet (I wish) but being in college it's awkward carrying equipment like that around on.

I see. Is AGP a person or a company? I've had my speed spoiler from a wrecked part-out sitting around for a while now waiting for install :)

Oh, and my oil cap wrench tends to cause the cap to get stuck occasionally, but it's never been a problem.

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

AGP168 is the user that sells these repro speed 3 wings.
the cap wasn't stuck.. it had been who knows what besides over torqued; the edges around it were completely rounded off; we thankfully didn't have to take a drill and chisel to it! That was the next coming option though :/

I am now (as far as I'm aware) the ONLY Whitewater Pearl with a speed3 wing .. out of any 3 ever made. Yay for that.

Cut the cords and put it into the plug; not very keen on using those wire taps..

Looks weird from behind right now; but from the side.. it looks hot!

BALD D: SO UGLY! hahahaha


Speed



I'll get some more pictures when I get my grill and and vinyl stuff in and put on!

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

Sooo I have a theory going right now.

Put Speed3 wing on car... see more Speed3s around town..

No joke; I just went to the bank and I saw 3 speed3s, and 5 normal 3s .. just so you know.. it's rare that I see ONE mazda3, and 99% of the time they're sedans. This time just one was a sedan!

found that kind of odd personally..

I normally don't see that many 3s. Today while driving around though saw shit loads of them. They were everywhere!!!!

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

Hmm maybe just a 3 kinda day!

Alright and for the news..
as you know Speed3 wing is on.
Just got the rest of my red tint today and literally just finished installing that (finally done for the day, thank god!)
Still no word on my Autoexe grill.. it's out there.. somewhere.
Word.. from SR*S guy is... btw.. your exhaust is on the way.. LOL! Paid for today.. shipped.. today.. talk about service!
According to FedEx it should arrive on the 2nd which is pretty damn fast I think. So props to that guy, he's awesome!
and lastly; white carbon fiber vinyl shipped earlier today so that should arrive midweek.

so that's just a heads up.. Been a pretty intense two weeks since EECMM now that like EVVVVERYTHING is going on[to] with my car.

Re: Nuse's >>'06 Whitewater Pearl<< build (slowly but surely!)

So I clay barred my car today. First time I've ever done anything like it, and what's sad is that it is cleaner now than it was when I bought it. The paint looks brand new, it got rid of all the black specs I thought were in the paint for good.

and the best part besides taking 5 hours to wash, clay, and wax my car is that Mother's clay bars smell like cinnamon :)

Also there are two new pics on OP

Before:


After:
