Family is part of the reason I'm minimalizing and concentrating my car projects. I can still do some things...I just can't do ALL of them. I was hoping to have a polished off car by the end of the year: nice interior, awesome suspension, lightweight wheels, built motor, baller hotside parts and turbo, niiiice exhaust. Everything not necessary to go FAAAST has been scratched off that list.
My wife is fine with me continuing to build the Miata as long as it pretty well pays for itself from here on out. I sold enough parts to make her happy, and now it's just a juggle of parts as to what I can/want to do.
I'm kind of up in the air about next step of build this morning, but think I just figured out where I'm going. You are right though, I really do not want to let this go, but without my nice leather seats I kinda don't care anymore. I will admit to sitting in the recliner holding this wheel in front of me and making steering movements and shifting/revving noises.

I will check out the scuffing a little more. I didn't notice it when I bought it, but looks like it's just into the leather. Guy had it in his garage while he was in Iraq, then his son wrecked the car before they got around to installing it. Not sure what caused scratches, but some shoe polish will definitely make it un-noticeable.
I tried to catch it with the worst possible exposure in the above pic. Here is one more pic of the scuffing in a little more natural light. Other than that this wheel is pristine, but I understand that this makes it a little less than desireable. We can work out a deal in private messages.
