I have YET to look at a car in that part of TN that was not ragged out. That black one could be cool again. But it's worth HALF of what he wants, if that, with a bad tranny. Is it just me?

Jack....it is on Amazon for $270. Have not had time to search more.

Guys,  it's on Ebay for 99.99 shipped to the lower 48 or I would not have bought it. I'd like to see the one that is 270, but it'd better be an original CX for that kinda money in my opinion. One of the most appealing parts of doing this mod is that it's a reasonable piece. Let me know if you want the Ebay link or the seller and I can message you with it, as I wasn't sure what the policy is on posting links to for sale items that weren't recognized vendors being new to the site. All that being said, I have more surprises up my sleeve that would involve using another famous japanese car's front bumper that will substantially update the front end of our cars this winter since I plan on either respraying my XR2 Cardinal OR Ferrari Rosso Red in the spring. Much more to come. Next on my list is grafting/welding in a Porsche Boxster 4pt roll bar like I did with the RX7 FC3S LS1 'vert I swapped a few years ago. I have already sourced and bought it, since I had my FC3S RX7 to measure and it's very close. I will also be modifying a Kamimari roadster top, I recently bought to work with it, although it'll render the rear seat pretty much useless.....but it pretty much is anyway. Anyway, thanks for the feedback. Time to help breathe some life back into this forum.

That is a great idea Blueamber! I have been keeping a notebook with threads from the facebook group as well as some bookmarks for parts. One repository would be great.

Lots of Mazda parts fit. I'll get a list from my work when I can you can't get Capri headstuds from AutoZone or Nappa but you can get Miata head stuts from Mahe and those fit perfectly. It's weird they don't cross check for the engine that way.

Just bolted this up lower chin spolier up today, along with tinting the original Hella fog lamps with yellow film and a heat gun. I took some measurements of my Capri XR2 I bought a few weeks ago and the 90-99 SW20 Toyota MR2 and found that their (the two cars) front chin spoilers basically bolt up, with only needing to be trimmed about 2 inches on either side of the vehicle, where it meets the fender wheel well. For those wondering, it is what was known as "CX Style", if you were searching for it online. Not sure if this is “old hat” knowledge, but I thought I’d pass it on, since it provides more cooling and perhaps a bit more down force. Aesthetically, it looks MADE for the car. I plan on painting the top half of it to match the car and the weathered black bumper trim to make it more blended in the coming weeks. As you can see it "blends" nicely with the lines of the fog lights and almost could have been a factory option it fits with so little modification.




Really nice modification, want one.

Thanks.  Pending evaluation.  I ordered a no-squeal alt belt from Russ so we can do that at the same time.

Something I would like to see is a listing of where to find parts for our cars, all on one list.  i am working on a FAQ, to be shared in as many places as I can get to.  Posts here will wind up in the FAQ if you can include personal experiences on purchases, or identify sources.

For example, the Dorman 20786 is a readily available brake or clutch pedal rubber pad for 5 speed cars.  Autozone sells for $5.99, says they don't fit our cars, but they do,,, also cheap on ebay.
