Not the front, but no vents in the rear behind the wheels.

Finally, all four corners finished. New shocks, lowered springs , new drop links and plenty of paint and under seal. Took longer than I planned.

Good idea with the fuel filler hose, however not sure how it works on the convertible version but on the coupe that part of the boot gets covered by the shell. The "boot lid" starts about half way down the existing boot space.

Filler neck is the original Mazda.
Shortened the two rubber hoses and removed the bracket from the bottom of the filler tube.
