Right hand drive 1995 mx6 build thread

Hey guys, gonna start my build thread of the project I've decided to tackle but I'll be honest I'm better with wrenches then computers and wonder what's my best options for postings pictures? All my picture are currently on my ipad and if I need to transfer them to a computer I will.any advice on how to go about that would be awesome as I'd like to share this project with you all. The chassis is mx6 members stealths old chassis with jlcustomizings right hand drive swap. Right now I'm getting all the pedals and firewall items mounted and so I can get the steering column and rack so I can start the wiring process. Also if there is any members from across the pond that have or can get some pictures of the mounts for the gas pedal for a right hand drive car that would be awesome. Thank you!

Lots of wiring, aftermarket chassis kit from jegs( really made by dillblox) seems nice and easily modified for more circuits and relays. Ms3x with fuse/relay block and full engine harness from diy auto tune. Still need a few more relays, main power cables and grounds, and breaker for battery



Stock klze, have headers and what not. Have full turbo kit that I could bolt on with a hx35 turbo but main thing is trying to get it running, so trying to keep things stupid simple for now and build a klg4 motor in the future

I dont miss how much wiring there was for me to do when I installed my ms. Glad to see some momentum in builds going on on the forum.

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

It shouldn't be horrible I hope haha,but I have yet to tackle the motor harness let alone the chassis harness. Got a few other projects to get finished up before winter and hunting season hit. Been working a lot to so that ha sent helped with getting time to work on it. But hopefully it'll be driveable by next spring for proving grounds at BIR

Right hand drive 1995 mx6 build thread

Well after a long search finally found some headlights! Thank you again ZE Powered Mx-6! It was a brutal drive getting out Chicago in that blizzard lol. So got some things to look at on the m edition. Wanna try and get it running. The red one runs great but I bought that last year for the wiring harnesses for the right hand drive build. But now with the two of them I may make a daily of one of them, and try save some miles on the Tahoe. But ones gonna start to get stripped down in the next few weeks for the harnesses.

well I got the m edition to run, turned out to be the distributor after all. Sheís still running rough, but getting her going at all was good news! Nows the hard part of part of deciding which one gets stripped down for the harness. Theyíre both 1996ís , the m edition has all the goodies but running rough atm, and the red one is completely stock with a better over all body. No matter what Iím taking the lights off the m edition and I already have dash ripped apart from looking for wires. Iím leaning towards the m edition as the parts car and the red one as daily beater to save miles in my tahoe.

now for the firewall. Buddy should be coming over this after noon, and weíre gonna finish up making the prints I need to get my parts made to weld in. I have some made already, one I need to remake as it doesnít completely fill in itís gaps. For the steering rack Iíll also need to make new mounts as Mazda decided to offset the racks from the lhd and rhd mounts. Brake and clutch pedals seem to be right where they need to be but it looks like Iíll need to modify the gas pedal because the offsets are different or try and find a rhd gas pedal assembly from across the pond which is not looking promising.

Status report, buddy came over. We got a game plan for the firewall. Unfortunately itís coming down to making piece for piece. Once the brake booster and clutch mount are for sure, those get welded and the steering rack from there. Gas pedal assembly can wait..... but seems like that will be just as difficult ha.... more to come
