    I too am looking forward to the finished dash. Your documentation will be another resource for whenever I get around to doing the 1.6 dash swap.

    Also, envious of your Pole Position key.

    Began stockpiling parts last week. Hopefully I will have time to install this lot in the next month or so, although the eccentric bolts might have to wait.

    - I.L. Motorsport bushings
    - Mazda Comp differential mounts
    - Mazda Comp motor mounts
    - New eccentric bolts
    - Flyin' Miata frame rails

    Nope.

    K-1 Racing (?) exhaust that was imported from Japan (possibly via Rod @ Tetsyua Garage), then found a home with SFLMiata, then came to me. He was nice enough to throw in a Top Speed resonator in the sale. The exhaust isn't perfect, and needs some cleaning up, but that'll get done in the next couple of days. This seems to be a pretty rare exhaust, and I had trouble even finding any sound clips of it. I'll get some up after the installation.

    Also, if anyone has any additional information about this exhaust or manufacturer, I would appreciate you sharing!

    Polished the exhaust a bit with Mothers MAG Polish, but not to an extent worth taking photos of. The tip and muffler polished up just fine, but the rest are going to need some sanding and more polishing to look shiny.

    Really liking this exhaust so far; reasonably quiet if you're cruising at <3,500rpm and very little drone at all driving highway speeds. Completely different when at full throttle though.

    Anyways, I was able to install it Friday night, but struggled to get any proper sound clips. My Nikon D5100's build-in mic doesn't do the job well enough, and the sound came out flat. The iPhone definitely did a much better job, surprisingly. Audio has been edited for noise reduction.
