I f-ing love this car! Drive it for a solid hour street tuning and breaking the motor in. Temp with the Ron Davis/ AWR Racing radiator never broke 185*! It's crazy cool. Pun intended.

Don't mean to derail the thread. But I have been looking for some advise what product might be available to cover over a small hairline crack in the plastic dash. I tried modeling clay, which was perfect, but it was soft and stayed soft, so it would only last a week or so.

Maybe plastic cement. Thin and clear..?!?

I am looking for something that will completely hide the hairline crack. That modeling clay was perfect, except it wore off because it stayed soft.

I'm still here!

As far as your question @Goodbar im not actually sure what the correct way or long term fix would be!

On another note. I may have a website going live soon, as well as some new sponsor information to add!

Looking like a clean machine ! I was at the junkyard this weekend. A few 626 there, an 89 Ford Probe, even a 929. For the crack in the plastic dash, the best solution I came up with is a small black pipe cleaner and glued it on. Looks good.

The polymer modeling clay would be perfect to use for this type of repair. But to harden it, you have to put it in an oven for a short time.

I got a few changes in mind for the car and will likely be posting up some progress photos as I go. I recently boughy a Scoote Hood skin that was originally on a Ford Probe and will be installing it on my mx6. I also sold my LSI Kit to move to a Mazdaspeed kit, keeping with the original intent of the spoiler. I'll also be running some very nice 5 spoke wheels in the future. This is a long play, but ultimately will function amazing.

I also bought a original World Challenge Time Attack Protege cylinder head that has upgraded valve springs, retainers, oversized valves, and some custom ground race cams! This is gonna be a huge upgrade over what I was running and will really allow the engine to breathe more air!

Got the hood in a semi finished state!

Have some new upgrades for the valve train coming soon!

This car is going to be an absolute blast.
Back in November I also launched a website where only the very top level details of my build will be featured.

Not a lot to update but I did start some of the tuning process driving it the other day. We are buying a house! Sometime before the end of the month we close and I'll have a new home for the car and space NOT attached to the house with a heater to finally work on this in ways I've wanted to. Like painting it finally!
