You are so right Eric. I have been running regular gas since last spring just because I could get away with it with a stock engine. Back to Esso premium which around here is the least likely to have ethanol I was told.
I am now 75 hours into the repair and I have spent $1,056, on cleaning supplies, paint,parts and a professional carb rebuild. I would say that I am 2/3 of the way to completion.
The color I use is RM single stage urethane (no clear coat) which polishes into something resembling the factory finish well enough. The match for Carnival Red is a Mazda color called Pure Red paint code NP. No fadeout into the fender topsides. I should not have told…
You will definitely see me again next year with my car.
Cheers, Gilles
