New parts

Ordered a bunch of parts.  Working on getting the car ready to track.  Basic plan is to fix the corners:

Brakes, ball joints, tie rod ends, and wheel bearings, and ball joint boots.  Ordered fresh ball joints and tie rod ends…and fresh cv2 grease to repack the wheel bearings and lube everything else.

I went with pfc 97 pads, and bought stainless brake lines.  Also got castrol lma fluid.  I’m gonna go with white-box rotors for now.

In the engine room…the stock radiator has come unbrazed from the mounts and one of the supports is loose.  So, I ordered a koyo 53mm.

Also ordered hard-top mounting kit and power steering plugs to convert to manual steering.  I’ve already removed the ac system..including the drive belt, so the ps is already disabled.  Just need the plugs so I can remove the pump and plumbing.

Fresh fluids everywhere.  Went with redline race oil, mtl, 75/90 gear oil…and water wetter.

That about covers it.  Most everything had shipped…and could be here by the weekend.  I’m hoping to have the car ready to track in october.  Nasa has an hpde event at eagles canyon 10/2-3.  But there are events every weekend in october if I’m not ready the first weekend.

Btw, I bought most stuff from dave at advanced auto sports.  All the stock parts from mazda speed.
