Some LEDs have a polarity, so they don't always work. Trial and error was the only way; the LED place wasn't sure because they hadn't dealt with a wagon before. The wagon is different than the sedan, so the regular bulbs they recommended didn't work. It looked like the expensive one was the answer, but that's too rich for my blood.

The bulbs fit, but they would pop the fuse every time so I sent them back.



Today:

URs



Unfortunately, while working on the car today with the tires off, I found a nail in one of them I do already have another set of tires waiting to go on though, but now debating if I will actually use those (RE760s) or just go ahead and get the S-04s I had been looking at.

Swapped out my radiator for a stock replacement koyo since mine cracked last night at the seam on top. Yay for 1-800-radiator.

I parked mine, put the parking brake up, and something felt fishy, so I put it back in gear and sure enough my rear driver's side is seized up. Drive a few feet, see if rolling is possible. but it drags the tire a few feet.

Anyone know what can be wrong? After some research it points to brake shoes. I've got some inspecting to do tomorrow.

I vacuumed and wiped down the entire interior with my detail package I won at BAM's raffle I also did the seat mod where you remove a few brackets inside of the seat to make you sink in a bit more.

Ordered some new exhaust hangers from kartboy to replace the ones that sheared off at hammy. Bought a defi link controller on nasioc to replace the one the rat chewing through my ground fried.

Rat fried as well so I'm ok with this.

No idea but I think I'll be using blanks from now on. Its a stoptech rotor. You see both cracks? Both of the cracks are right on the slot. I've had one track day at thunder hill on these rotors two years ago and found myself letting off way before the end of the straight so I wouldn't cook them. The front right started pulsing a little bit last month. Today the pulsing increased. I think the second crack happened today. I was surprised when i took the wheel off to inspect . Found some blanks and decent pads local so I threw them on. Braking is way better now. They must have been warping at the cracks.

Replaced rear rotors and pads today. Damn Mazdas and their "fake" bolt hiding the piston adjustment socket. My repair manual informed nothing of this shallow bolt!

Tomorrow, I adjust the parking brake.

Installed JDM fogs. Took longer than expected (removing bumper & cutting the bumper support beam). Worth it.

Looks good. I was going to do them too until I found out I would have to cut the support. Not interested in doing that myself, but I do love the look.
