    Was trying to catch up with what was done but I noticed that majority of the pictures from your previous pages are missing.

    I don't like that white background. Clear would be much better. Apart from that, I don't see any issues with it.

    I'm going to go back and fix the issues with the pictures.

    October has been Mazda month at the Slow N Rusty garage.

    On my GT the following were done:
    1) Install brand new rear left and right hubs (fortunately still available from Mazda).
    2) Install new Timken inner and outer bearings front and rear (left and right). The fronts had never been replaced and so 28 years old!
    3) Install new front and rear brake rotors and pads, I didn't really need to, but as I had to separate them from the hubs I went ahead and did it.
    4) Install new front strut tops (left and right).
    5) Install new lower lip below the GTAe front bumper
    6) Oil change
    7) Replace the rear blown Tokico struts with new KYBs for the coilovers

    A few token pics.







    Happy motoring friends and be safe.
    What's the ride comparison between the now KYB rear struts and the previous Tokico rear struts?

    I would say that the KYB is nearly identical to the Tokico on the street, which is a 100% of where the car spends its time.

    Well the past few weekends have been very busy working on this car...running through the list in my head:

    1) Replaced a leaking crank seal (29 years old)

    2) Replaced the right CV axle output shaft seal (29 years old)

    3) Installed a new water pump

    4) Installed a new timing belt, Mazda OEM tensioners and all accessory belts

    5) Replaced a bunch of brittle rubber hoses with silicone ones

    6) New plugs (NGK BCPR7ES)

    7) New NGK wires

    8) New Distributor cap and rotor

    9) New valve cover gasket including the rubber grommets

    10) Powder coated the valve cover which was flaking and peeling after 30 years with a new wrinkle red finish

    11) Made a new bracket out of aluminum to support the throttle cable (on top of the valve cover) - took two tries before I got it right

    12) Power washed the bottom of the car to clean off the leaking oil from the crank seal and axle output shaft seal

    Gratuitous picture:

    Finally got around to taking some pictures with the decal, I decided to go to the front door rather than than rear.
