thats a likely solution wazza, the rubber is not split and i cant see a difference from one side to the other. i will have a look for one of those brushes. let you know.

Hi fellow mazda people, bit of an update,
i had fitted the new headresr speakers, and the free kenwood radio is spot on. so thats another problem fixed, need to tidy up the bit of foam though but its all i had in stock.
The water leak has miraculously disappeared, and i have`nt really done anything so i will keep an eye on it.
After returning the car to the road again after xmas, its just got better and better with use.
Free revving engine, pinpoint steering and good brakes ,its going great. The pipe that the gearbox ate has not been an issue, and gearchange is sweet after the car warms up, bit stiff when cold but are`nt we all.

Work coming up,
new windscreen,
clean and paint under the wheel arches,( most underbody already done before xmas)
new cam belt when the weathers a bit warmer,
treat cavities to some wax treatment in summer
I have managed to collect a full set of wishbones and subframes which i am hoping to powder coat then put new bushes in and swap over when ready.

i also got a set of teardrop doorcards cheap, but the hardboard is no good, so i am going to make up some new ones (hardboard) the vynil is ok.

hi, not posted for a bit, the wee eunos is going great guns, does seem to get better every day and is loosening up nicely.
i fitted my new shiny boot lid the other day, and am in the process of painting the door mirrors.
there should be a post on here for "what have`nt you done on your mazda today"
i intended to strip and paint under the arches and change the cambelt/water pump over easter, but many overtimes at work put paid to that.
so maybe next month.

Hi , the much love old roadster is still going strong, i am really enjoying it, and when i retire next year it will get a full refurbish. i am collecting bits as i go for both my mk1 california and the eunos.
recently i picked up a set of jdm fog/drivers lights on ebay, heres how i fitted them with help from wiser people on here.
the lights came with wiring and switch so it was a case of plug and play really.
i removed the battery connection first. pulled out the blank switch on the right side of the steering wheel. it had a blue connector on the back which mm advised was the dash dimmer plug.
i removed the blank switch and fished about behind the panel and found a black plug which mm assured was the fog light plug.
i plugged it into the switch and refitted to the panel.
from inside the engine bay drivers side about centreof the wing, you will find a redundant white plug. the loom plugs into this, there was a relay fitted in the loom which just hangs there and an earth wire which i bolted to the body behind the headlamp.
i fed the wires down the side of the radiator, to where the air scoop is.
just above the tow hooks is a captive nut (6mm) i had to tap these out as were rusty.
the fog lamps bracket fits in there and screwed home with a bit of coppaslip grease on the threads. other side of the bracket is just those small plastic clips which press into holes already there and screw up the little screws.
fit the connectors to the back of the fogs.
reconnect the battery and switch on the sidelights/headlights, voila, fog lights.
simple plug and play.
i already have a set for the california but dont know if they are plug and play too, have to find out.
the fog light switch does not illuminate by the way its not meant too.
its only a 4 pin switch and i believe you can get a 5 pin one which can be illuminated.
my hrw swich illuminates and design looks same so i will investigate.

footnote,
fog lights working great, but when i went to work in the dark, the dash lights didnt light up.
i realised the blank switch i had removed for the fog lamp switch had a blue plug connected to it, mm said it was for a dimmer switch so i reasoned that removing it caused the dash lights to go out,
sure enough the blank switch has a connecting bar across it, so i just plugged it back in and allowed it to dangle behind the switch panel . easy one sorted.
sorry no pics.

re the non illuminating switch, i had a look at the wiring and the front fog switch should illuminate as the hrw one.
i had a couple of spares, and gently separating the switch apart, you can see that its the same inside, just a switch with the little illuminating led.
i took my old switch out and replaced the back section with another and it worked ok.
so the little led must have blown.
you can probably buy them at maplins or something , i will have a look after.
the pictures show the switches separated,
the switches in the dash, and lights on.
easy fix and another bit of knowledge gained.

hi, still alive here, the old eunos disgraced itself by failing the mot, just a wee bit chasis rail welding now complete.
also and heres the question, the upeer ball joint rubber on the wishbone, i ordered a new one from mx5 spares, cleaned everything off and replaced the rubber, now does the rubber just sit on the lip by compression of the taper joint ?
there was no clip,and the boot was rubber only no metal insert. i tried using a zip tie but it just pulled the boot off when tightend. anyway its all back together and awaiting retest.
anyone enlighten? does it just stay in place by compression ?

They just press on , inside the rubber bonding edge there should be a metal band that holds it in place, are you sure that they have sent the correct ones?.
