    I know you'll enjoy the fender braces, as I did with the Frog Arms. Definitely a lot of pre-work there.

    My problem is that I don't trust shop work but I don't trust my own work, either. Kind of sucks and starts a downward spiral that normally leads to the car sitting for months.

    Solved the problem with the hood needing to be slammed--I think. Cut a little bit off the two rubber bumpers on either side of the latch.

    Ordered some odds and ends (fender fastners, new OEM NB2 splash shields, and a portable jump starter pack). Really wanting to order a steering wheel spacer, but it looks like Supermiata is OOS and has been for almost a year. Any thoughts on the Spacershop piece? Looks a lot like the Supermiata one, but has to come from across the pond.

    I think the SM ones are made by them, but I may be wrong.

    I think so. I forgot that the design originally came from Italy. I've reached out to them to see if they have any in stock.
