Some photos from my journey to SEMA 2012..





Saw several of these..

This car from NYC was heading to SEMA...




Later found out that the 350Z was in the caravan with one of my rotary friend from NYC... Manny who owns this FD.



I've known Manny for many years and one of the few rotorheads who's been in FD's for over 10 years. I think he had his FD since 1994??

Anyhow, 3 day trip to Vegas, we saw several of these..


many many semi's and many of the wind power stations.



And finally made it to Vegas..



and to the convention center.. in que to get the car in..

At SEMA update...

Sorry for the lack of update.. I'm going to share my experience at SEMA.

Well, as you guys have read, I have put the car together in 6 out of 8 days after chasis was painted. Due to lack of time, car is a roller... which made it very difficult at SEMA.

First, we couldn't unload the car until we were placed at a certain location to unload. We waited over 2 hours between central and south hall, waiting someone for us to goto a specific location to unload.

Finally after 2 hours, we were moved to front of central to unload the car.



From here, they couldn't figure out where I was suppose to park. We now waited another 2 hours til someone figured out where I needed to park.. which was front of North Hall.. a good 1/4 mile away from where we drop the car off, through the central hall, to North hall.


Waiting to be moved.. again..


While waiting, Enjuku Racing posted this photo on their facebook page... First photo to be leaked with all the panels on..



And finally made it to my spot... and before decals got on.

Just read through every page and amazed. You did all this just from getting rid of the TL lol jk.
LOL!


We didn't have time to really finish the interior pieces.. So, when I got back from SEMA, I pulled them out and sent them to Goolsby Customs to get it refinished.. They were ready today and picked them up!


Defi Cluster gauge surround that I made.. Man! Love the finish!!


Prosport center speaker pod..


Center console that I made.. again.. Goolsby customs did a great job with the paint.


Some of the other interior parts..

I been also trying to finish up the 20B FD and testing out the Defi DSSC.

Making the CF surround.




Also install the push start button.


Power up cluster to make sure all the is good.


And simplifying the interior harness to keep only things I need.. like power window, brakes, turn signal,...

I been working on my MB FD so I could bring it to my event, 'Deals Gap Rotary Rally'... which is becoming the biggest rotary car event in the country.

Anyhow, here are some recent pictures of the MB FD.















And the rare Mazdaspeed seats in red..
Holy Christ Man. That is one Bad Mamma Jamma. Wow. Great job.
The best Mazda I have seen.
