Exterior & Interior / 3d printing parts
« on: July 11, 2017, 05:11 PM »
Hey guys,

Anyone out there able to 3d print any parts?  I need someone to make me a retainer for my shifter assembly.   Id like to get a bunch of these made for the mazda/speed owners, as its a very common part to break when installing a short shift assembly.

Cars for Sale/Wanted/Trade / LF Summer car
« on: May 14, 2017, 02:37 PM »
So, as the title states. I'm looking for potential summer cars.   Ive had my eyes set on a few different cars, so here are the options.

Mitsubishi Ralliart Lancer (2.0 Turbo SST)
Lexus IS series (unsure of year, or model.  Currently open to 4 door sedan's, preferably something a bit newer
Subaru WRX STI (Must be hatchback, low KM, full service history)
Toyota Aristo
Acura TSX
Open to RHD imports.

I would be open to other cars, but must meet the criteria of a 4 door sedan, or hatchback.   Would prefer AWD as an option, but for the right price/ trim package i would also consider a 2wd option.

What's all out there folks, this fall i'll be posting up the mazda for sale.

Engine & Transmission / LF some transmission advice.
« on: September 13, 2016, 06:36 PM »
So, i'm not totally sure on this issue, but everything points to it.   On my Mazda, i believe ive toasted my release bearing.    Now, i'd be up for the challenge, but i dont have that kind of experience on replacing such an animal.   Can anyone recommend me a shop that they can TRUST on this?  While i'm in there, im also thinking of replacing the clutch.   That being said, i don't think its really needed.

Symptoms - Clutch makes a very light squeak sound coming from the engine bay.   Only happens when engaging the clutch, but also doesn't happen all the time.   Seems very random.    Also, to this point i have 87000 kms on the car, and have yet to do a  transmission fluid change.   Should this be a first on my list as it hasn't been done yet?

Thanks in advance for the help folks.

Wheels and Tires / FS - Project Kics R40 (Neo)
« on: July 28, 2016, 10:33 PM »
I have a full set of Project Kics R40's in Neo Chrome that I'm not planning on using anymore.   I have used them last summer, and just this spring/summer so far.   The exterior is in great condition, however like most R40's they developed the rust inside the barrels.   I purchased them previously from a member on here, but i don't have the original packaging.

Comes with 20 lugs + the key. 

12x1.5 pitch  (honda mazda acura toyota etc...)

I'm asking 225 for the set.

General Discussion / OEM seats
« on: July 17, 2016, 12:20 PM »
I'm looking to find a place that has decent OEM seats.   I just bought one yesterday, and found out the stitching was different, so now im in need of a passenger seat (or i just wait till next year to bite the bullet on better seats.)

Any recommendations to get an OEM seat in good condition? 


General Discussion / Canada post strike
« on: June 16, 2016, 07:41 PM »
Looks like those monkeys are at it again....

Don't ship anything canada post.  Hopefully this doesn't happen, but seems like its somewhat inevitable.


The province is gearing up for a potential strike by Canada Post.

In a media release sent Thursday afternoon, the province said, “In anticipation of a potential postal strike, the Manitoba government has arranged for government cheques and other essential mail to be available for pickup beginning Monday, June 20.”

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers – the union representing more than 50,000 postal workers – are the midst of intensive contract negotiations. Canada Post filed for conciliation in early April, but negotiators have made little movement towards a new collective agreement.

RELATED: Postal union expects Liberals to stay out of any labour dispute at Canada Post

About 6,000 rural postal workers have been without a contract since the end of December; the 48,000 or so urban workers have been without a contract since the end of January.

Wheels & Tires / Wheel re-finishing
« on: June 06, 2016, 04:31 PM »
Hey everyone,

So I'm having a little bit of an issue with a wheel, the facing got damaged after it was dropped on pavement.   The face needs to be sanded/painted.

the wheels are an 18x8 +40 Enkei M52 in hyper Black (this is not black, it looks more like a silver with a black underlay.)

Either way the wheel needs to be finished.   Wheel works says they wouldn't be able to do it.   Anyone ever heard of Wheel-Fit-it, how have they done for colors like this?

Looking for some input on the matter.
