    The billet grill along with most of the good gear was removed when I put it up for sale. I'm slowly putting it all back together as it was and even better. On a side note I had purchased a low, 50Km NB8C and decided to sell it instead. Its Titanium colour didn't do it for me. Still, I added 14,000Km in 5 months and made a big profit.
    The seats are MazdaSpeed that even came with NB rails. Super expensive but extremely comfy. As much as I love them, I'm unsure what to do with the interior. I could keep these and use white or gray on the door trims or use the seats I got from a UK 2000 model Icon. I like the look of the Icons seats with separate head restraints. I have the entire parchment interior I could use. It's a dilemma.

    As I said, I love the look of the separate head restraints. It's more in line with the classic look. I have all of the mahogany trim as well. I think it would go well with the black exterior. The trouble is I would need to swap the earlier NB8A door trims and centre console for NB8B ones. These weren't available in Australia.

    Hm. I like the parchment interior, but I am partial to it. On the other hand Mazdaspeed seats are more "race" and 90's period correct than retro. That being said, I might be tempted to re-trim in the same parchment leather as the original seats and use them. Or sell them for a profit, and re-trim the NB Icon seats if needed (drivers' one looks "tired")

    And please start a build thread

    Now that we're in "lock down" I may have time to do a build thread here. I do have one on MX5 Internation and "Sooty" has his own Facebook page as well.
    If I could obtain the parchment door trims and centre console for the NB8B, I would use the Icon seats, which as you said, need recovering.

    Damn NicolasN, I don't think I've ever seen that front end on an NB. That looks amazing!

    Slowgoing, but got my center console carpet in, and stereo relocated to the glove compartment. It's nice to have music again after...6 months?
