Looks nice...the front and rear mud flaps don't look like they're sitting right though...no rubbing issues with the tires?

All my mudflaps are the cleanest set your gonna find in all truth. I have a rather large collection ive hoarded of them and used the cleanest i have. The rears are actually OEM JDM flaps which are much larger then the ones seen on the US spec cars. They actually extend further back on the bumper if you look at the pic's. I have two set's of those ive sourced so far.

Rubbing wise, I rolled the fenders, and even did a slight pull in the rear. And was fine, Until last month when i installed the Escort front strut mounts. Now i have to drive like a grandma. Im gonna be borrowing a fender roller from a friend and doing a bit more work though soon.

Here's a quick engine shot. Pretty basic though. Just a Maf conversion, Intake, Polished MazdaSpeed oil cap, strut tower bar and KLG4 valve cover.





And here's my new M-Edition MX6 leather seats. These replaced another set i had previously that were no where near as nice.

That's one of the best 626s I've seen. Just the right combination of mods for it to be a fantastic looking daily driver. Is that the same ones with the gauge mods?

Your seats pic wasn't working so I put the pic there from your album that I thought you were trying to post.

This car is top notch. I had a clean 94, one of the last Jap built 6s before they moved american production to Little Rock. Same color and everything. I lost her due to a pile-up caused by some a**hole woman. her engine still lives on in my mx6. Good work Monoxide. I actually still have some parts from it like a full set of leather door cards and fully functional sunroof.

Its a shame your not local. Id buy those door cards off you. Ive been tempted to just redo the fabric area's of my existing ones. But havent really started that project yet.

Thanks man! Appreciate it!

Seats are nice , in better shape than the ones in my M Edition. It's getting hard to find MX6 parts around here. The one place that use to have a few and was reasonable price wise switched to Honda only parts.

I still have my original set, and there not torn. There just a little more worn. I also have a Brand New set of OEM M Edition floor mats. I thought of putting them in this car, but just cant ruin them. I know there is no other set like them in that condition. Would be overkill for this car.

Like most my drivers seat has a tear ( top part has a 2-4 inch tear on left edge ) in it. The rest could be cleaned and conditioned and look good. If I could find it could I change just the top , maybe use a passenger seat top?


Yea save those floor mats , could be just what someone is looking for during a future restoration. Man I think back to 20 (+) years ago and would like to have some of the stuff ( and cars ) I either sold cheap or thought would be of no use.

Yea, you can swap out the sections pretty easily. My last set of mx6 seats i had, i had actually taken a full passenger seat, yanked the skins and foam off them, and wrapped them around a drives side seat frame.
