    Well I had hoped to stick all back together in a few hours,but several things have slowed progress to a stand still again,..
    Getting work I couldn't turn down,preparing a car (BG) for the nct (national car test-ie.the Irish road worthiness test),the arrival and manoeuvring/playing with of mz?(another phase 1 edm gt hatch,this one already mostly restored and a real keeper),...
    And the small matter of 2 week holidays that was booked a year ago and "slipped" my mind,...
    Nearly over now,but Have another heap of stuff to get through when I get back so small steps over the next few weeks.

    Anywho,...I did get a bit of time to work on mz1 before I left,...
    I don't want to say "test" fitting things,..as I've done almost all I can do with regards making sure reassembly goes smoothly,but i wasn't exactly rushing and torqueing,so not much to show.

    I did get a few bits fitted,fuel filler pipe assembly I suppose you'd call it is in and looking good,...
    (just a note here,can anyone post here or direct me to the OEM assembly schematic of said fuel filler assembly,..as there's a peice I found on 1 BG,from the 15 or so I've been messing at,that wasn't on any other car,...I don't have a pic,but il post soon,...I just want to see is this part OEM,as it wasn't on any other BG,and I can't imagine "all" the cars I got over past year had new fuel filler pipes fitted and "all" left the peice out)
    Nothing is being left to chance on the back end reassembly,all parts are checked,cleaned,lubed,sanded and whatever else needs done to make the back end "better" than new,however,as anyone doing this kind of muck will know,taking pics of "all" the steps isn't practical when covered in grease,brake fluid,oil,dirt or crap.

    Few pics of the fitted pipes,with new gasket thing.
    Note-I Will loosen again and glue the gasket in place,and fit a washer to the bolt that holds this mess to the inner wheel arch as I think it's needed,..when the main rubber pipe is connected.

    Also,started at the rear hubs,rebuilding in place with all the sexy new-ish bits,...
    This kind of thing with new nuts,bolts and bits is always nice and easy.
    But still a few curses were involved....
    (Really I was so engrossed in getting things on neat and tidy that I forgot to fit the rubber grommets to the cylinder and didn't realise til I was finished "idiot",..so had to pull it apart again and basically start from scratch,...grrr)

    And a couple of clearer pics of the bits fitted,...
    Note-that rusty bolt that's messing up the pics is going soon.

    Mz12 I think
    Got this shipped from the uk,..
    (Though the car was cheap,shipping and pick up make it by far the most I've spent on a BG in 10 years,but the myriad of brand new OEM parts that came with it,and the work already done,with maybe 8-9 thousand pound in rebuilding receipts for work done and parts bought for the car,..including 1300 and 600 pound receipts for the welding in of new chassis legs,wheel arches,sills,floor peices,...undersealing and so on,..
    Not to mention,fully rebuilt honed block with new Pistons,rings,rods,crank bearings,..al new pullys,pumps,tensioners,washers,seals,...
    Skimmed head with new valves,seats,seals,springs,gaskets,....blah,blah,b lah,...
    Really "everything" in engine is "New OEM parts",..and I mean everything,....
    New engine mounts and cradle,new shocks and spax springs,news slotted discs and green stuff pads,...
    Rediculous expenses incurred include new Mazda OEM alternator,clutch,flywheel,plate,release bearing,..
    8 OEM wheel bearings inc the 4 fitted,..
    4 new Mazda calipers,..(1000)
    The list is endless really,....even down to new OEM heat shields.

    The car itself was the boss of "Cardiff Mazda dealers" company car for a while,and accordingly has cool options like arm rest,fog light grill,side skirts,spoilers,...then it was his 50 year old elderly neighbours car for a short while,then was bought on trade in by a mechanic at the same Mazda dealer,..
    Who drove for years until starting the restoration a few years ago.
    (Hence the incredible expense of buying all those new OEM parts maybe wasn't all that bad with employee discount,...I guess)

    Anyway,it's at the ranch now,and is in a 2 horse race to be the new mz2(black hatch interplay),...by that I mean,there's not much to do to finish it off,so it will likely get priority wen the time for hatch resto arises.

    Car has some small flaws,..rusty metal sunroof(have already purchased a glass one),...
    Drivers door card and seat are not in great shape(these parts in the other gt I have are like new)
    And tbh,the welding work needs,or more accurately,...isn't up to my standards,...the work looks good and solid,but the finish is poor,and was obviously done by a blind man....
    This I will get me resto guy to check before re'build commences.
    Few pics for posterity.
