Been a whole year that i have not updated this thread, good news is that i have been busy at shows representing Mazdamenders and tinkering on the 5. Will update with lots of pics soon and also am putting together a DIY on how to bypass my leaky power steering oil cooler with the help of Wayne (need to get on the horn to Andrew at Autolink ASAP)

Many of you know, a converted eunos import will read the speedo in MPH but the odometer is in Km/h still,... so you'll get a good laugh at the milage i have been putting on my car (see attached MOT Certificate below).

Tester didn't even try to mess me about this year as he knew i schooled him (with the help of this site & VOSA) last year when he tried testing my 92 import to 99 standards as it was imported in 99.

As i passed my MOT and was expecting to fail due to a sticky caliper (FR) i had some time so i thought I'd address the unfinished cosmetics in the boot. Tackled some rust patches 3 years ago but never finished them as i always have stuff in my boot.

A bit of masking and a can of halfords satin black went a long way to help clean up the look of my cars boot.

Now i just need to refit everything else and be done for the day. She'll never win any awards, but I'm ok with how she turned out (fit for purpose)
