So, today was both gross and great. I decided it was HUMAN FILTH removal day.
Tastes Like Petrol Posts
Went back into the garage this morning, and finished what I started yesterday.
As mentioned in my Cars post about the Marina, I found an old “Special Tool” the other day.
I felt inspired to give the Roadster a little love today.
Did the engine oil this evening after work, decided to do it now as the engine needs to be hot, but for the trans oil tomorrow it needs to be stone cold (as the fluid expands when hot, and its harder to judge how much to put in when you’re putting in cold fluid).
Another car, another cabin filter. See a trend here?
The MX5 came with two options of shock absorbers. The Sport model (RS) got flashy Bilsteins and all the other models got boring Mazda made shocks (US models low-end shocks were Tokico, but I can’t see anything on my JDM shocks to indicate the same). I wasn’t lucky, my car isn’t technically Sport spec, so no Bilsteins from factory. Can’t have everything eh?
I purchased some wheels the other day for the Roadster, which unfortunately turned out to have an offset that was different to what was advertised. In order to confirm this I needed to work out how to measure offset, and thought I would share.
