    @kung fuel jesus: Steven, you alone would have 4-5 pages here if there had been such a thread and you had posted in it.

    I brought it out of the garage to drive it after a week. Washed it and then we got hit with rain. Car looked amazing in the parking lot.

    A much needed set of coilover spanners, to take apart my not-yet-installed suspension. Going to give it a wash in an hour or two.

    Chad, what was the reason for going to NB2 lights if you were putting the orange circles on? I thought most people went to the NB2 to get away from the orange?

    @tsingson: Misfire is a NB2 (2001 to be specific) so they were on there already. If the NB2 taillights 'clear' area was actually clear instead of pinkish I probably could have left well enough alone. Also part of it is 'classic cars' influence and so many of the iconic cars I love just looked so good with amber/yellow turn signals. i.e.

    Ferrari F40


    McLaren F1


    Ferrari 330 P4


    Alfa Romeo GTA


    Renault Alpine A110


    Don't get me wrong I realize they had amber/yellow sections because the incandescent bulbs were white/clear bulbs and most modern cars don't need colored plastic to achieve the amber/yellow lighting(many use red) and many look better w/o said colored lens. Just a personal preference in this case.

    Ah. Didn't realize that it was an NB2. Always thought it was an NB1. I prefer the orange. Just wish that Mazda made mine the same orange.

    Re-re-finished Misfire's headlights...


    Here is how they looked from my previous attempt and stopping at 1500 and then using a polishing compound. (Turtle Wax, light/medium)



    Finally after using the Turtle Wax polishing compound(light/medium).

    2018 has been a busy time for my roadster...

    Picked up a Hard Dog Rollbar (and door bars.)



    So I had to clean out my storage locker (been that way for 17 years)...



    and turn it into a working garage...



    Got the Rollbar and door bars installed and went out to meetup with some other roadsters.



    Polished out the headlamps...and, upgraded the 3BL unit to a flasher with 16 LEDs.



    Love this car!

    Had 3 Junior High boys over today (one of them was mine) for Intro to Auto Shop. We covered all the basic stuff, fluids/air/electrical, Jacks and jack stands, change a tire, etc. Was a good day!
