    gotta love that green.
  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    I didn't know your car was green too. I thought it was either red or white for some reason. I don't know why though.

    I guess I am the only one on the board with a black Protege. I will have to get the pics I took of it (before the accident) developed and post them on the web soon.
  • chikoochikoo Posts: 3,008
    post some pictures. I am getting lonely up there.

    Larry,
    why don't you post the pics of your twins in the garage. Man, I can never forget that sight when I came down to your place. they looked as beautiful as new-born - washed twins with their Daddy :)
  • the_big_hthe_big_h Posts: 1,583
    just washed & waxed yesterday, very shiny... but depends on if I can get out of work early enough so there's still sunlight outside

    Have a feeling that this is going to be a LONG week at work... sigh...
  • digidavedigidave Posts: 48
    Tell me about it - vehicle was nice and clean end of last week and this morning I wake up to find a pretty, newly fallen, soft snow blanket. Of course, the agony comes from having to drive on the salt ridden roads.... Did somebody say Spring was here?!


    Ok, here's a shot of my baby when she was a week old. No mud flaps or window tint yet, but planned.

    The sparkle on the roof works very well. Almost look like one of those car mag pix.

    very nice indeed

    I'll try to post mine up tomorrow, got caught up at work today...
  • chikoochikoo Posts: 3,008
    did you get this pic from the mazda brochure...no?

    I am jealous! I am about to go out and buy a scanner, so I can post a picture of my 2001 ES on here! :) I haven't even gotten it back from the shop, and have not seen the car in a week. If not for Jerry's backround with the black 2001 ES in it, I would have probably forgotten what it looked like! :(

    I dropped off the key only to the the car, and not the remote. By accident this morning, I grabbed the keys off the holder with the remote to the Protege instead of the one to my rental (a Saturn L-200, which also has remote). I nearly cried when I realized what I did. I hope my car is done today, or I don't know what I am going to do! :(
  • nikecarnikecar Posts: 460
    I got my scanner at Office Depot over Thanksgiving for $70 with a $60 rebate.. they have the same one (or newer) for a similar price.. Nice cheap scanner. and it scans fairly nicely too.

    I got the same message as Chikoo did. I thought I did something wrong, but I didn't. Oh well.

    The clear turn signal lamps look huge compared to the yellow ones in there, to me anyway. They still look good, but just larger than the ones they replaced. Nice car BTW! :)
  • the_big_hthe_big_h Posts: 1,583
    rest assured that the clear corners are identical to the original in terms of size, it's the direct sunlight which reflects off of the corners that makes it seem bigger, plus my car's dark exterior brings it out even more.

    I better enjoy my car's just-waxed shiny look, forecast says rain coming on Friday :(
  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    Now it's coming up as the page not being available. Seems you have no luck with picures here, so you? :)
  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    I got a picture of this car from http://copartfinder.com and it looks pretty bad. But notice how the roof and all held its part even though the car's in pretty bad shape. Protege safety at work!

    try uploading at photopoint.com
  • theparallaxtheparallax Posts: 361
    I have an account at Yahoo Photos, similar to Photopoint, so I'll try there...

    I have more pics at http://briefcase.yahoo.com/negatize if anyone wants to see more! Just click "My 1999 Mazda Protege LX" on the site.
  • digidavedigidave Posts: 48
    Hey folks, thanks for the kudos on the pic! Honestly, it's a "digidave" original, taken with a Kodak DC-120 digital camera at 1280 x 960, knocked down to 640 x 480 and compressed into jpg format using standard encoding. Of course, the right amount of bending down to get the proper reflection, and the use of the flash to fill in the dark side helped produce the desired effect.

    big_h: those corners are definitely appealing...got me thinking some more...

    vocus: ouch! Just looking at that picture hurts!

  • I am new on this board, but seem to have a more modified Pro than most who have posted here yet, but I dont have pics yet, I will post them later this week. I am getting a custom wing, lowering springs hopefully this week. So far I have:
    Limo Tint
    16" custom alloys wheels
    Euro clear altezza tails
    JSpec Clear Corners
    Custom black mesh grille with no logo
    Aftermarket Fog lights
    Euro clear side markers
    Hyper Green Xenon headlights
    Hyper White corners
    Blue back up lights in altezzas
    Aftermarket pedals
    Decals

    I will hopefully post pics on here by the end of the week when I get my grille installed and maybe I will have my new wing and 2" drop.

  • groharlemgroharlem Posts: 59
    Hehe, its a 93 LX with a hefty modification list. All I need to do now, is lower it, and get some new struts, and it will look NICE!!!

    Click on the pic to enter my website :) Like all you 3rd genners care :( hehe j/k :P

  • speedyptspeedypt Posts: 200
    Groharlem...

    Great '93 LX!!! I had two '92 LX's and loved them both, especially the 5-speed. The "ultrawhite" look is especially well done. Glad to have seen it here!

    Regards,

    Pete

    This is our 2000 Protege ES. Just over 36K miles on it. Has a few little rock chips on the front (lots of interstate driving), but still looks great. Haven't had any problems as of yet. We are currently looking into purchasing a 2001 ES.
  • protegextwoprotegextwo Posts: 1,265
    Very NICE, my friend! ;-)!!! The fogs and moonroof really dress up your PRO.

    -Larry
  • theparallaxtheparallax Posts: 361
    I really like those Mazda foglights! As must as I like the new 2001's front end, I will miss the classy 'smile' of the 99 and 00 model Protege's...
  • gitarzangitarzan Posts: 66
    Those are nice fogs. We don't really need them around here much, but I was thinking of aftermarkets, anyway.

    After seeing the factory lights, I could not imagine anything else coming close in looks.
  • maltbmaltb Posts: 3,572
    that most lights billed as "Fog Lights" are actually driving lights. White light does a poor job penetrating fog, but when you put an amber filter on it you get much better results. However, white light on a clear night sure helps for spotting pot holes and other hazards as well as being able to see farther around a corner.

    :)
  • nikecarnikecar Posts: 460
    probably because most folks wouldn't have a clue if you asked them to compare fog lights and driving lights..
  • chikoochikoo Posts: 3,008
    these lights are called "City Lights".... low in height so that no one is disturbed by the BIG lights when driving around town...and you still see the potholes :)
  • maltbmaltb Posts: 3,572
    It's not leagal to drive(in CA at least) with only your fog/driving/"city" lights on. After dark, you are required to use headlights, city or not.

    :)
  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    I had fog lamps put into my 1999 DX when I had it, and I had them wired to they would work with the parking/maker lamps (whatever you wanna call them). I wish the ones that came standard with my 2001 ES worked with just the marker lights on, but they don't. Think I could have them re-wired to do so?
  • chikoochikoo Posts: 3,008
    city lights is a concept that is used in countries other than USA - Asian/european countries where the city/towns are small sized - NOT EXTRA LARGE like america :)

    After two and a half years and 39,000 miles, I finally have pictures of my Pro! I will have to get better ones... these are not as vibrant as I want... I wonder if I can get a polarizing filter for a digital cam...

    image


    Here's an interior shot of my beloved Momo shift knob. It's black leather and chrome and makes shifting an absolute joy!


    image


    I think some nice Katzkin grey leather seats with black inserts would look nice along with black carpeting... hmmm... time to start Photoshop...

  • nikecarnikecar Posts: 460
    is it just me or can anyone not see the pics?
  • jstandeferjstandefer Posts: 805
    I tried using Yahoo! Photos, but the links don't work. I have reposted them using PhotoPoint instead. It looks like they're working now!
  • maltbmaltb Posts: 3,572
    Jerry,

    You can get them from Tiffen:

    http://www.tiffen.com/


    I have their circular polarizer for my Epson and that thing works magic on all that California sun!


    :)

  • protegextwoprotegextwo Posts: 1,265
    For a tad under 40,000 miles, your car looks "marvelous"! VERY nice job with the detailing. Jerry, you should be very proud. The 99/00 still have that classic Euro look.

    -Larry
  • theparallaxtheparallax Posts: 361
    Nice! My favorite color is Classic Red - too bad they don't make it anymore. If I would have known about classic red and saw it in person, I most likely would have gotten that instead of Sand Mica. There's this 99 Classic Red LX I see around town here and it just looks GREAT!
  • fowler3fowler3 Posts: 1,919
    Instead of a polarizing filter try using Unsharp mask in Photopshop. Try different percentages: 70%, 90%, 100% up to see what it does. Don't go too high or it will cause fringing and grain.

    Unsharp masking eleminates unnecessary pixels where colors blend into each other, and puts a highlight around high-contrast colors.

    I downloaded your pic to experiment with and will e-mail it to you. If it works on 72dpi.

    Beautiful job on the car.

    By the way, all AF cameras (digital and film) should use a circular (spiral) Polarizing filter.

    GO! I do wish Mazda would change the radio antenna!
    The one they are using dates back to the &#146;70&#146;s! Sheesh, it&#146;s OLD.

    I&#146;ve considered having the holes filled in and painted over and installing a standard mast antenna on a fender.

  • fowler3fowler3 Posts: 1,919
    I&#146;ll give your pic a shot too.

    One thing you can do is use Brightness and Contrast controls in an editing program such as Adobe Photo Deluxe, if it came with your camera&#146;s software.

    Increase the Brightness, but don't blow out the highlights. Then increase the Contrast which strengthens the colors and darkens the black shadow areas.

    Do this before saving as jpeg.

  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    I like the antenna up high. I can get a Baltimore radio station all the way up to Delaware almost. Also, it makes the design look cleaner where it is. And you can always put it all the way in if you wish to.
  • fowler3fowler3 Posts: 1,919
    I was able to sharpen your picture. How do I e-mail it to you?

    Think Jerry's has already been given the Unsharp Mask treatment. ;)
