    You could drop the car off with me for the winter... I'd get those new parts broken in for ya. Gets cold down here, but we don't really get the white stuff.

    Got a nice spot next to Betty it'd look real nice in.

    Heh, but yeah, sucks you guys up north have to put your cars in hibernation during the winter.

    I know. That is very disappointing, however, it will give me time to try and freshen them up and also bring them to an upholstery shop to try and get matching material for the dash pieces.

    It definitely sucks not being able to drive the car. I have found though that not driving for several months makes you really appreciate the car and love it that much more.

    What a difference that here, everything stops in the summer but we look forward to winter to get everything done.

    With winter coming I am tossing around ideas in my head for some interior changes.

    Debating about doing a shorty shifter console with finish piece over the gas lid release lever.

    I kinda miss having the shift boot that matches the steering wheels and handbrake cover.

    I see Garage Star , Jet Stream, and others make shorty consoles. Id prefer to keep my revlimiter window switch is possible.

    Anyone know if rev's switch works with the GarageStar or Jet Stream short console?

    I inquired about the Garagestar one before I went with the Carbon Miata one. He didn't have it in stock but not sure if that was just the NB one.

    Yes. Mine had the slot for the OEM power window switch.

    Hi Paul,
    I'm Chris, the guy who makes the ABS Forever Panels you've got on your doors.

    I was just flipping through catching up on some build threads and I stumbled upon yours. (I also drive a white 90 with lotus seats).

    I spotted the post where you 're installing the LE grilles on the door panel- I think you've got it assembled wrong- that's why its not fitting correctly on the car.
    The black backer on the LE speaker panel mounts to the FRONT of the door panel. screws go through the door panel from the back to hold it in place. It should go door panel - foam - vinyl - plastic backing plate - polished plate.
    The polished metal cover and the speaker grill should be flush. Check out these pics:

    The LE cars has very small spacers to 'lift' the panel slightly away from the door near the speaker. If you look on the Forever Panel, you'll see unpunched 2mm holes on the outside of the mounting clip holes. That's to mount the spacers with rivets.

    If you've got this all sorted- no worries. I just thought I'd reach out.

    -Chris

    Hey Chris, thanks for the info. I will check that out once I get back to tinkering with the car.. tucked away for the winter. I figured it would be something simple.

    thanks for making great panels.

    Damn It has been a while.

    Life has gotten in the way of the Miata. With spring just around the corner it is time to get the Miata ready for the road.

    The way the car has been situated in the garage on rollers, it has hard to push/pull. Figured i could use my ATV but I have no tow hook. Good excuse to purchase one.

    Picked up the Garage Star front hook. Looks awesome. cant wait to install.



    Now who has the leads on the tow hooks that work with the R package lip??

    RyokuRob rear hook would work, and match (in silver). If those are still around. I recall Greasemonkey looking for them for Warbird... maybe some leads there?

    Rob still does small runs from time to time, but he advertises locally.
