What tools do you want me to bring?
« on: July 30, 2008, 01:18:03 PM »
I have every tool you could ever imagine needing to work on a mazda - Over $5k in my personal box, and over $30k in my box at work.  So my question to you is, what tools do you want me to bring?

Right now I know I need the following from reading your guy's plans:

-Spring compressors
-Electric impact (screw hauling around a compressor)
-Torque wrench
-Sockets
-Wrenches
-Allen keys (Saw someone had brakes they wanted to put on, need the 7mm for the caliper bolts)
-BFH
-C-Clamp
-Thin piece of sturdy metal

I'm not bringing a decent floor jack or anything, I figure one of you guys can bring one, if not we all have one in our car to begin with.  Same goes for jack stands, if you want them, bring them.  I'm just throwing stuff into a tool box and tossing it in my hatch, along with my lawn chairs, suit cases, and my laptop.  I don't want to deal with too much shit banging around when I haul ass down Tail of The Dragon.

Oh yeah, I'll also bring a coat hanger, and my electrical supply box, in case we have a wiring project like independent fogs.

Hacksaw? What is this, 1912?  How about a sawzall with a fresh metal blade?  Garanteed to cut through exhaust in about 10 seconds!

I would love to have indy fogs on my MS3 but I've been afraid to try it myself. I did the mod on my 97 PGT but the MS3 mod looks to be more involved.

Speaking of him, he bought a speed3 for 10k.

Basically all the stock parts were off of it tho...IE Turbo, catback, AF housing, bov, TMIC...

still...that's a fucking STEAL!

I did it on both my PGTs, that was a 10min mod. Super easy, but it looked so bad ass after it was done. I've been meaning to do it to my 3s but the laziness gets me everytime.

ive been wantint to do it but im too nervous to bake my headlights, if someone has done it already i can save that to be done at the meet
Levi, I did it to my hatchback. It's pretty straight forward, but a PITA. It took me forever to actually do it, cause I was such chicken shit. I had the angel eyes sitting in my garage for like 2 months before I actually did it. But now, it's one of my fave appearance mods. If you need any help, I'll be more than willing to.
