    Thanks Steve! I really appreciate all the input you've given over the course of this project. Will be looking for those tools soon. When putting everything back in the engine bay I realized the usefulness of the flare wrenches, but didnt note which we used.

    Now Steve that's just mean! I've got to be back to work on the 21st! No real way for me to make that one work! I do hope to be able to say hi when I'm in the area though.

    I was there that year but had just gotten my miata. No idea of what shape she was in so I wasnt going to chance a long trip like that. I flew out to la and then drove up with KINOD and the ohio guys including the maker of this video.

    Awesome that you went!
    Your planned trip is even more awesome!
    I can't say awesome enough.

    Keep us updated during your trip, eh.

    A few things have come in the mail with some additional ones in the works. Type 1 Garagestar license plate bracket, since NH sucks. Jass door pull blanks, since my current pulls just have screws, and the last item is the Garagestar wiper cowl cover. Having recieved a preview of the parts outstanding I'll only say I'm sure they will be the usual fantastic execution and quality associated with this vendor.
    Of course the car is still in storage, so the parts just sit here... taunting me. Auuugh!

    Updates! Installed Garagestar wiper cowl and Revlimiter front badge and Jass blanks with Revlimiter badges. Adam did such a great job on these. Have yet to do the GS plate bracket.
