You disgust me.

I want CC now.

Either the oem route, or the audiovox one.

It's nice to have a car you can drive AND enjoy.

I have my car with A/C. I love it.

I don't need it in the miata. Both me and hailey like the ultrashields better than the leather seats in our Jetta. Not sure why. Maybe Mine just have more padding.

All you guys are sick ***** for liking and supporting Lars in the LE interior. Its disgusting.

Yeap! It's fun driving a fast and loud car, but eventually I wanted something that was more daily-driver friendly. A free headache on every long drive is not something I wanted.

Cruise control was actually installed because with my race seats driving for longer then an hour my right leg would get really cramped due to slightly off seat position. It had been on my todo list well before I was going to swap in a red interior.

I did not cut up your baller door panels. I cut up the crappier ones that I already had. Your perfect door panels and the nicer tweeters went into my other 94LE. I have zero desires to install power windows in the track car.

I also am in the process of installing poly bushings in all the control arms. The 20 ton press from HF makes getting out old bushings a piece of cake once you figure out how to hold the control arms. Poly bushings should hopefully go in this afternoon, then bronze inserts as soon as I get them from SadFab. I am also waiting to get my diff back from the local spec miata shop. They are in the process of installing 3.63 gears. Once all the suspension parts are done and reinstalled on the car, it goes back in the garage so I can finish building more MKTurbo setups on it. Then once I clear that backlog I get to start on getting everything else on the car finished and hopefully get it driving again.

+1 for good progress and can't wait to see finished product.

Wishing someone made less than 3.63 ring and pinion for diff...would make long drives in this car amazing!

Me too, used to drive crazy rattle can fb rx7's that you needed earplugs for a long drive.
I remember when Nigel first drove my car and said he should let me drive his car. I said, "Why because it's sloppy, I am an old man, I like my car sloppy. I have driven enough rock hard rigid cars in my time."

Came here for red interior, was not disappointed. +1 for getting old and realizing that Miata interiors don't weight enough to offset the noise.
