    Thanks, so the seat covers are from a german company called MA Carstyle. Considering the price, they are really nice pieces.
    I'd actually like to enjoy my roadster a lot more but a barely drive it. Most of the enjoying part is making improvments here and there
    I hope that I'll be able to properly drive it again some time in the future...

    As for the tires, the R888R are E marked and street legal. So are the NS2R, which I'd probably have gotten if the Toyos hadnd popped up for a discounted price.

    I had the Ns2r in the past when the Eunos got approved by sps.
    The whole car had strong vibrations from 80 km / h and on. Was practically impassable. They were balanced several times but I think it was due to the 7 inch rims.
    I sold them to a friend's NA with 6x14 Intra wheels.

    Huh, how did they perform on the 14x6s? Is your friend happy with them?
    I really was relying on the NS2R for the future. Let's hope that at least Toyo will keep making some good tires in that size.

    There were minor vibrations at certain speeds but not that bad.
    He had the Ns2r before, too.

    Forgot to update when it happenend:
    Got a new OEM rear panel as mine was faded and had some blemishes.
    DSC_8096.jpg

    Removed original emblems to be replaced with new JDM ones
    DSC_8097.jpg
    DSC_8098.jpg

    Decided to go without the Roadster emblem this time as it didnt look right (accidently got another version with an angled front face). Would have gone without any emblems but unfortunately, the upper right one was held in place with pins, therefore I need one to cover up the holes.

    Also, replaced the rear shelf carpet as this one still had holes from a previous ownder's style bar install

    So this is how it looks now:

    DSC_8172.jpg
    DSC_8173.jpg

    Well, when I say now... the car is currently hibernating next to my Lantis.
    Here are two pics from October 31st - last wash

    See you in spring....

    Well, planned for 2021 so far:
    - Paco Motorsports Strongarms and Brake Master Cylinder bracket
    - FM door bushings
    Both already have been ordered.

    Other than that not much. Drove the car about 1k kms this year so...not really much to do
    That said, there WILL be a major engine overhaul in the future, depending on available funds which in turn depend on my other projects. There are 2 engine swaps already in prep for my Lantis and MX3 in '21 and '22.

    So, I rediscovered sone pictures from last year after reading through the forum all evening and thought i might as well share.
    As per the pandemic, no official events were held in 2020. However, the situation in germany allowed for at least one semi-official Mazda Cummunity meet in July. As the weather and the roads in the region were perfect, i decided to take the NA
    Even managed to get it nice and clean for the occasion:
    DSC_7547s.jpg

    Early on Saturday morning I hit the road, excited to go on a road trip, meet some friends and see a few cars, maybe even take some spirited drives...
    DSC_7550s.jpg

    As it turned out, I would do exactly that Only managed to stay there for the better part of one day but at least had some fun on and off the roads. Here are a few pictures on site:
    DSC01182s.jpg
    DSC01176s.jpg

    And one with my favourite Touge companion cooling down
    DSC_7552s.jpg

    That sums up about 80% of my Roadster activities in 2020 ^^
    That said, I'm hopeful that I might be able to allocate a bit more time to the car (not sure yet how I will manage that in practice). To celebrate the occasion (or rather the intent), I decided to update the shopping list from above like so:
    - Paco Motorsports Strongarms and Brake Master Cylinder bracket
    - FM door bushings
    - AWR front sway bar mount
    - H&R front and rear sway bars (I already had these on the car but sold them when I got my BC coilovers)
    I also wanted to change the look a bit towards the slightly aggressive, so:
    - GV front lip
    - Rev9 M2 1028 side mirrors

    And as my center console is a bit faded and worn, I'm looking into having it wrapped in leather if this is feasible until March - otherwise it will have to wait until next winter.
    In addition, I really have to look into future means of photography as picture quality really has declined with the demise of my beloved D90 and it's just annoying to ony take crappy pictures all the time.
    Well, one step at a time
    Happy new year everyone!

    So, today, these arrived:
    DSC_9249s.jpg

    I am excited to see them on the car in spring. I originally intended to spray them BRG right away, but i like the finish on them and might try them out in black first.

    That's the PPF brace no? I've been eyeing that for a while now.

    I've had a PPF brace on two different Miata's now, one Beatrush(NA) and one Roadstersport(NB), and they are great for stabilizing the drive train. Goodwin Racing now makes their own that is a little more cost effective:

    Thanks for the recommendations and your experience with them. Makes me confident that buying them wouldn't be a waste of money

    Yup, thanks for the recommendation! I just sold my PPF as I didnt realize it was steel (assumed it would be alu like most other Beatrush parts) to raise some money for another project and to get the lighter Roadstersport version in the future
