Installed FM+FCM suspension in my car, loving it. More info on page 3.
It's got's more than enough suspension travels to go off road.
Flushed the brakes, it got a better pedal feel now.

Couple weeks ago, I cut down the front spring of the car, sort of help with the ride height. It's sitting 13f/13r now. But the bad still look sagging with me in it. Still got some work to do...ahhh
Anyways, I pick up a pair of smoked parking lights for $25, it's a pretty good deal since it the seller also drilled holes for the twilight conversion. The lights also came with 2 socket and wires for the side. I spent a good mount of money on these LED, with hours of work this morning, I still can't get the lights to work the way I want. The amber LED and side markers are my turn signals. But the LED will only flash when I have the parking lights on...I tried every possible way to wire it, but it doesn't work. But a normal 194 bulb will work perfect in there.

My laptop is down, I'm using my 12 years old desk top now......Also lost my camera after a miata group drive........ :(
Anyways, I got a couple things added to my car:
New spark plug wires and spark plugs
Polished the "mazda" logo on the valve cover
Installed NB Racing Beat springs on my car with FCM 46mm bumpstop in the rear, the right height went up a bit in the front and lower a little in the rear. It's sitting at 13.75f/13.5r now. I'm going to get another 2 FCM stops for the front then cut the front springs to even it out. I want a 13f/13.5r ride height
Just bought a used Sparco Sprint Junior seat today for $80, it came with the NA sliders, it's a little beat up, I'll clean it up later. the installation was not too bad. I had to drill a hole on the floor to get everything line up.
I'll upload pictures whenever I get my laptop fixed.

Xmas day. I bought a pair of yellow fog light protector for my friend's corolla. It looks pretty cool, just a small touch it make it stand out from the corollas you see everyday.

I bought some LED lights from ebay. For my parking lights, I installed them yesterday, and have a hyper blink problem many car will have with LED lights. I did a little mod. to make them stay bright and have the sidemarker as my turn signal.
I use these 2 article as reference:
Here is the process. 1. Cut both green wire and red wire on the parking light. 2. Connect red wire from connector to green wire on socket. This make the parking light lights up brighter as the turn signal is ON bright all the time. 3. Cut the ground = Black wire from side marker. (2nd article) 4. Connect green wire from connector to the Black wire cut from step 3. This for will make the sidemarkers become turn signals.
I still have a fast blinker problem, I think it's because the difference in power required to turn on the sidemarker bulb and the parking light bulb. I'll figure it out later.

Umm... I got a lot of stuff done over the past months. here is a list of them.
KYB AGX shocks...Not sure if I like them. They are definitely better than the shock ones but they're not great.
Newish soft top with a plastic window. Got it on Cragslist for $100
A set of American Racing wheels with new michelin tires for $100! (tires are in wrong size tho)
Then got a set of Konig Heilum and put the michelin on these wheels.
And I finally tirmed my car's "penis" off. now my exhaust look stock again.

Pick up a used Jackson Racing Cat-Back exhaust today from someone on CL. Guess how much I bought this for? $150? $100?
NO! You are wrong, I pick it up for a whopping $75!!! O.O
It has some normal wear here and there, but still somewhat shiney. What do you expect for $75 dollars. These things go for $400 when they are new. The owner said it doesn't rattle and it does not sound like a freaking civic. It has a pretty deep sounds. I'll see if it's true when I install it this weekend. I'm going to put a sound comparision video youtube.
