This will be the last paint-prep update! All panels have primer and sanded flat ready for base/clear coats.
My rear garnish used to be black, going back to white this time around. The shop also fixed up my radiator support, which was all hacked up by the previous owner.
Boot lid all prepped, it was initially in really bad shape. The frame was pulling down the outer skin and causing a lot of low spots. So the glue between the frame and outer skin was removed to allow everything to be flat, new adhesive will be applied.
Front and rear bars done.
Bonnet and hardtop.
I also ordered brand new rubbers from Mazda 🙂
