Funny you should say that...


The FD is back on the road :shock: The FB is taking her place in the garage, though hopefully the refresh won't take a year like the FD one just did :oops: I'd say it became a labour of love, but it was mostly hate by the end. Could do a bit of an update on my FD garage queens thread or whatever that section's called, I suppose if anyone's interested

Looks good bro! What's the plans for the FB?

I'd be interested to see an update on the FD also.

Just needs some love, dude. Need to properly waxoyl the sills as I haven't had a chance to do it since the welding. There's a few leaks need fixing, I'll have to get the manifolds off to do the coreplug mod in the carb passageways. And while it's off maybe tap the waterpump housing out to take a better fan switch as at the moment once the fan comes on it never gets cold enough for it to switch off again. And then maybe the fuel tank... and ... and...

Might be another year, after all :oops:


I'll pop up an update on the FD in my Stable Mates thread then. Ready for a looooooooooong read? :lol:

Sounds more like you need a better fan ?

No, it's the stupid size boss Mazda put on the housing. It's M16, which almost no-one seems to use for solid-state fan switches; most are either 22 or 14 mm. The only ones you can find are for quads which switch at 65 degrees. Or Nissan Micras, which is what I have. It switches on at 89 on but off at about 75 (seems Micras don't have such energetic cooling systems as RX-7s, who knew). Show me a fan that can cool an RX-7 to 75 degrees and I'll show you a horse fly

I see what you mean Nik, mine has a seperate controller but I tend to use my overide switch before the controller kicks in.
