      Cant wait to see what this runs.

        all sound deadener removed. cuntofajob. dry ice made it easy but i didn't purchase enough so had to do the front half of the car the old fashioned heat gun and scraper method.

        in terms for bang for buck, sound deadener removal has to be towards the back of the list. half a day to remove only 5.5kg to put things into perspective.





        not my first choice of things to be stripped naked and laying on my couch. my second choice though!



        the FUCK is this shit?! like a 45mm and a 40mm throttle where there should be at least a single 65mm one. will need to think long and hard about what to do with it.



        some googling:

          I have a Subaru Legacy tt one you can have, it's probably 60mm diameter and very low profile.

            Bad luck with the sound deadening, I pulled almost 20kg of it out of my car.

              i guess that depends on what you count as sound deadener. i'm only counting the tar like substance; there would be approx. 5kg of matting type sound deadener that i removed too (stuck to the underside of the carpet). what car you talking about for interest's sake?

                My sound deadener looked pretty much identical to what you've got in your box except I filled up a whole vacuum cleaner box with it.

                When you said you were going to get dry ice I almost posted a message saying to get lots of it as I ran out towards the end too, sorry I didn't.

                  Awesome. have been watching this. Have an aunty who loves the 80's mazderattis and to their credit, they had 4 that just didn't die.

                  This looked almost dailyable until pulled apart. So fuck yeh, keep it up!

                    they didn't die but they had 4 of them? does not compute.

                    lol, i did daily drive this thing... for one day. got it rego'd on a Thurs afternoon, drove it to work and back in Fri peak hour hell & started dismantling it Fri night. it was pretty enjoyable compared to what i usually daily.

                      prob a bit too much effort for this challenge but i have spent nights so far this week making some new wiring diagrams for the car. i am only using a small percentage of the circuits in the car and the factory wiring of the circuits i am using is all over the place, so i have simplified it. 1 diagram for power distribution and engine harness, 1 diagram for instrument cluster and 1 diagram for external lighting will cover every wire in the car. i'll make a start on it this weekend and hope for just under two week turn around. car now has only 3 relays, 5 fusible links and 8 fuses. factory relay & fusible link holder will be reused & factory wiring and plugs will be recycled. i didn't want to reuse the massively bulky factory fuse holder so i have come up with a very much 13-4-1300 spec fuse holder idea.

                              It was 3 now I think about it. One got wrecked, one was pretty decayed in the interior (sun all day) so got turned into a thrasher for us and they bought one last second hand to because they loved the unkillability of it. Still have it I think.

                              I think I'd rather daily most others in your list though...

                                ok, most of the hardware is now purchased. i'll stick costs up in the first post and keep it updated. most of the remaining budget may need to be spent on a new clutch, but i'll wait for the current one to start slipping before i think about it.

                                it's funny, i bought the turbo mazda to utilise its turbo hardware but so far i've planned to change engine management, engine load sensor (MAF to MAP), fuel injectors, fuel pump, turbo, intercooler and exhaust system (i.e. i haven't utilised any of the original turbo bits). all i really got out of it was a strong gear box and a boost friendly 7.8:1 compression ratio.
