    What did you do to or buy for your NA today? 2018

    Well no one had started this for 2018 so here we go. Someone saw that I needed one of these since a certain person bought this part off Randy. This showed up in the mail today all the way from Manhattan Beach, CA. Thanks Pete

    That was provocation? I just gave him a poke or two and per Rick and I quote" I think the Entire MR gang should poke AO, constantly."

    My wife's IS300 has been a friends on the lift waiting for part for her fuel tank we literally dropped Sunday. So I've been daily driving the Miata while she drives my truck this week. Been really enjoying the shorter gears from the 6spd/3.9 I installed a few months ago. Sold a few extra parts earlier this week, so I think I'll order the VDO gauges and AN fittings to finish up my braided fuel lines.

    I might try to make it out. Not sure if I'll be there in the Miata or not. Might bring the daughter out and give the wife some time to herself.

    On order...GV x REV9 LED Nostalgic Tail Lights Kit.

    I sold my Carbon Miata rear panel only because the Garage Vary panel has a character line and recessed area that I want to add some black paint.
    I am a slave to automotive fashion.


    On order...Jet Stream Front Lip.

    Automotive fashion and function. I do plan to see some triple digits here & there.
    After I am satisfied with the Jet Stream lip installation I will have a NIB R-style lip and TrackDog extreme splitter for sale. I usually sell them at a very reasonable price so they move fast.


    Received already... OPR OE Lower Front Bumper Grille (05-09 Mustang GT)

    I will try to integrate this into the rear bumper. More automotive fashion and function. We will see if it works out, hey it's only $63


    Received already...NEW PONTIAC SOLSTICE/SKY MANUAL TRANSMISSION w/HYDRAULIC LINE 2007-10

    Ecotecmiata is working on another kit that will utilize the Pontiac Soltstice transmission (Aisin AR5) to work with the Miata PPF.
    This transmission is just for future insurance if I blow the Miata transmission or have any flywheel issues with the Ecotec adapter. I was assured the latest conversion kit is now bulletproof, but I had to snag this anyway because I might not have another chance to get a NEW transmission. It came from the factory when Pontiac shut down. Even has the hydraulic internal slave cylinder and throw out bearing.

    I'm ambivalent about painting a VC. It gets oil on it, repeated heat cycles, taken on and off a bunch of times. They look good, but they are hard to keep from scratching, chipping, etc. I'm a fan of powder coating for durability and chemical resistance. I painted the VC on my spare engine, the first time I tried to clean it with parts/brake cleaner, the paint started stripping.

    Yeah, I'll have to clean my car up early Saturday. It'll be a quick wash and wipe, but it'll still be wearing rubber stripes from GridLife back in August.
