wheels are on! no major clearance issues, some rubbing at full lock but thats not the end of the world and can be fixed down the road pretty easily

Obligatory comparison pic of the wheels that were on and the wheels going on the car.

if those had been available last summer I'd have put them on my gray MSM, instead I ended up with FFD's. They'd have looked great there too, but especially on these dark cars. Gonna look awesome on the Gross car too.

Jongalongdongs look great, I'm excited to see those in person this weekend. Full lock rubbing should go away with the coilovers' smaller springs.

Trouble comes in threes. You've had 3. I predict smooth sailing for years to come!

But, holy cow! What luck!

Thanks! I hope it's smooth sailing for a while! I'm ready to put some miles on the car and have some fun! I'm determined to take someone else's lab experiment and get it to reach its fullest potential!

With the NRG hub do you still have a working horn?

EDIT: I really don't care about YOUR horn. Talking about the car, just to be clear....

I will have a working horn. I think I've figured a way to wire it, just been too busy working 70 hours a week to go in and wire it up.

Installed my phone holder, put a new shift *** on and picked up 97 NA Door Cards, and snagged this seat. I plan to retrofit the door cards with some "custom" fabwork to the MSM, and the Seat will get reupholstered and made to look like new again.

planning a bunch of things for the miata this winter... should be fun!

NA door cards that i will retrofit onto the car.
going to move/relocate and add gauges.
planning the rebuild of the motor this winter with forged internals
want to track down another 6 speed as the previous owner broke 2nd gear and proceeded to swap an NA 5 speed into the car.
planning to order the NC Singular hood Vents and get those onto the hood
Vinyl wrapping the windshield frame Matte Black
while the motor is out, im planning to paint the engine bay Matte black, and clean up alot of the wires/hoses (partial wire tuck)
had the heatercore blow out on me and would like to replace that. while i have the entire interior ripped out ill look to shed a bit of weight where i can and probably do a bit of heat control around the drivers footwell
gotta bake open and repaint the headlight since one got trashed from the accident.
Install my vented wing windows
also trading my "custom" 3" straight piped exhaust for the 3" FM exhaust. i want something a little less obnoxious and a buddy of mine wants something more obnoxious for his hill climb car.

Ill try my best to take pics while the whole thing goes down. Once its all broke in ill be making the trip in the spring to the eastern side of PA for Ken Hill to tune the car and of course Dyno sheets will follow getting the tune

well the list of things to do grew this week.
got offered a hell of a deal on a FM cross flow rad, and airflow fan setup. got SS brake lines and hood props as well.
looks like im going to have to add the coolant reroute to the list now since ill be in there and it will help maximize the upgraded rad
