Laying in Wait

Ready for Spring

12 Feb

After last weeks storm, I’m really looking forward to Spring and weekend window-down driving. In preparation, I cleaned up my summer wheels for our 2011 Mazdaspeed 3.

It’s been a couple of seasons since I’ve done this so it was a chore to get the old weight adhesive and road tar cleaned up. The job calls for some simple green, WD40, rubbing alcohol and a few old microfibers. A plastic razor also helps with the tar and adhesive residue once you soak the affected areas in a bit of WD40 to loosen up the grime. A plastic razor won’t scratch the surface like a real blade…

Each wheel took about 40 minutes to clean up and polish with a good cleaner wax like klasse AIO but it’s time well spent. These wheels are now 6 years old and still in decent shape with only minor rash that I’ll touch up and wet sand soon.

5Zigen Headers for 370Z

1 Feb

We have a set of these artfully fabricated 370Z headers available for sale. Usually a special order with a 4-6 week lead time, and an over $2000 price tag once shipping is factored in…we’re offering them for less, and, there is no crazy lead times.

The headers are made of SUS436 stainless with 42.7mm primaries, and a 60.5mm outlet. A mandrel bender could not bend to the tight radius required, so each unit is sectioned together. So nice, they really deserve to be on a wall!
