    My latest Miata 1994 Laguna Blue (Runabout)

    This has been sitting in the garage for a few months now, it was an automatic car with a bad tranny, so the first thing was to install a 5 speed, new clutch, LSD, timing belt and WP, hoses, and belts, with that done brought it home to start the weight loss, and add a few goodies. This will be my Laguna Blue Runabout. After the transmission change, and long overdue maintenance the Runabout is becoming a fun car to drive! More to come.

    The wipers and wiper motor are coming out, not gonna have wipers, or a top, or carpet, and a partial dash of some sort, building a lightweight mountain roadster, putting in a rollbar, headers, Enthusa Exhaust, etc.....its going to be my "Runabout" everywhere Roadster! Working on my coilovers now......more to come.

    How hot does the interior get with the tonneau cover when you get inside? Just looks like it would be extremely hot and stuffy.
