Oh neat. I had plans to detail my truck on Saturday... But...
Long story short. Last month I bought a '95 NA. So now I have the NC and NA. There are some things I want to do the the NA... they mainly start with stiffening it up as it feels a bit like a noodle compared to the NC.
The car is in excellent condition, wait 'til you see it. But at some point it it's life, the original owner high-sided it and bent the driver's side frame rail. So the first thing I want to do to the car is add something like this:http://www.good-win-racing.com/Mazda-Pe ... 00604.html
Do you have those in stock Brian? Do you think I can get lift time to install those? I thought about pulling the bit that's bent before installing these, but I might not need to. I think these can just be bolted in regardless, even if that one bent part would not allow a bolt.
If you have other chassis stiffening components you recommend as a whole, please let me know. We can also discuss more of it there.
Essentially, before power mods and all that, I want to get rid of every flex, squeak and rattle throughout the entire car. I do have on power mod that will also equate to a rattle-mod. The stock header's heat shield - the part that's on the bottom right before the cat, rattles like crazy. I could take off the heat shield and add an aftermarket, non-rattling one, but I could also consider a new header altogether.
I'll eventually need other chassis reinforcement components, including a roll bar. Another thing I want to do is replace all the bushings, but we can do that at a later time.
