Replaced Reverse Lights with LEDs. Gave her a bath: foam cannon and then hand wash with some Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss. I was planning on finishing with wax, but it started sprinkling on me. Still looks good even after the little bit of rain.

Today I visited my go-to wrecker to pick up a front turn signal lamp holder and ended up leaving with a set of black-bezel factory HID headlights instead. They're in mid-wet sand right now and will be cleared and installed tomorrow.

Finally got around to replacing the Shifter Switch on my '14 6 that was having the not-registering-the-car-is-in-park issue Also swapped out all the headlights (low beam and high beam) with Katana LEDs. Took it out for a drive tonight, and they look good - a nice, bright, white with a hint of blue. I'll have to do some testing to see if they need to be adjusted or if there is any glare.

One thing I noticed is the check engine light was on after I swapped the headlights and got everything put back together. I ran a code test and it was the Intake Air Temperature Sensor.

I took off the lid of the OEM air intake box to get to the driver side bulbs - and evidently the intake temp sensor didn't like the inside of the box being exposed to 100* heat for a few hours (I took a lunch break in between). I got back in the car later after dark and the check engine light was off, but I will keep an eye on it. I plan to replace it with a CosrSport SRI soon anyway.

More coming this week: new windshield tomorrow (thanks to a rock chip that has spread all over the place), tint later this week, and hopefully installing the fog lights / led bulbs next weekend.

The stripped down center console/shift module:



The defective switch:

Today was a huge victory after a long battle with my 1st gen getting it ready for a 1500+ mile round trip with the family. I can say the she is finally ready for the trip.

To celebrate the huge relief, this is how the wife and I spent our afternoon and evening together.



I have a kick ass wife and she had fun. I'll have a reveal pic later after we clean them up a bit.:grin2:

Small photo shoot before vacation.

Just some pics of her new look before we take it on vacation. I dig the look that's coming together. I didn't even give her a bath. It looks like it's about to rain for the 3rd time today anyway so we will ride dirty lol.

I just ordered another round of parts towards my retrofit. 1 more good round and I should have everything I need. Last on the list is D2S bulbs, New H3C bulbs, Projectors, and about 75 feet of 12 conductor multi strand wire. Hopefully very soon I can order it all up and get everything installed. Then I can work on the rear of the car lol.

Just order the Aitlift 3P kit for my 3rd gen. 2 viair 444cs and d3 racing air coilover kit will round it out.

Its my DD, so it will only be down for 1 day while installing the coilover bag kit.

The rest will be installed as I get the chance throughout the next few months.

Just filmed a little walkthrough of my build so far on my 2015 Mazda 6. I got a sweet exhaust clip which made me smile from ear to ear!

I installed the Ultra Racing Rear Anti-Sway Bar over the weekend, and am loving the added handling performance. It pairs nicely with the Tanabe Strut Tower Brace.

Complete rebuild of front and rear suspension. 200 thousand miles on the stock parts. Previous owner couldn't figure out why it was trashing a set of tires every 5 thousand miles.

Nothing too serious. Getting ready to move from Ohio to Arizona in a few days, and decided to install a new starter and properly ground it to the negative battery terminal. Change out the spark plugs. And hopefully, later today, do a full coolant flush. Just the basic services, I guess. Also: later on want to try and fix the super annoying, saggy roof liner with some adhesive spray I recently bought. I hope everyone else is doing well this week!

Lmfao!! Love the pic of the hammer next to the starter. Such an essential tool for changing starters out 🤣 🤣 🤣

As far as the headliner goes, as a heads up, the spray may not work. The headliner will have to be removed and the fabric replaced. There is a foam that will need to be scraped off for best adhesion. You can try it and if the spray that you have works, please let us know because I know mine is due to be redone.(y)
