- Mazda Protege5
Knockoff fender tool and the HarborFreight heat gun
So funny, I ran with a cracked fog light for 6 years before replacing it.Went to the salvage yard today and got a fog light to replace the one which has had a hole in it for ten years. Better late than never, eh? Picked up an extra master power window switch since I'd had one go bad in the past. I went spelunking in several Mazdas for a roadside jack, but they usually pull those out of the cars so that people don't use them and crush themselves under vehicles while on the lot, I guess. They had what looked to be a similar Nissan-branded jack on a shelf at the register and I bought that. Luckily, one of the cars I looked in still had both the jack handle and T-bolt used to store/secure the jack while in the vehicle.
I signed up with row52.com to be alerted when there's a new Protege or Protege5 on the lot. Surprisingly, there were no Protege sedans on the lot and three Protege5 hatches.

Good looking. perfect price point entry to get one.Bought this little spoiler lip for the P5. I've seen it on a few P5s and I think it looks cool. Have yet to receive and install, but thought I'd post the link since the site is having a sale until the 30th and I was able to get the lip for about $115 shipped which is decent I think.

I've got a set sitting in a box. Have been debating whether to install them or not. I feel like they don't match the rest of the interior but maybe I'll give them a shot having seen your picture.
Yessir. Found an old listing here and reached out, luckily the seller still had them.
Let me know what you try for bulbs. I tried some cheap LEDs in the past and they had very uneven light distribution and would flicker intermittently. Right now I have a set of LEDs on the right and left sides and some halogens in the middle so it's a variety of different brightness and shades of red/orange across the cluster. Would be nice to have it be brighter and uniformly lit.Yessir. Found an old listing here and reached out, luckily the seller still had them.
Thinking about grabbing new gauge cluster bulbs before getting into it and installing these.
