And then I left the NB in Corpus and left with the 93 LE with fresh paint. I'm driving to California tomorrow, giving myself five days to explore with the stinky NA. Had to do this drive with the car that has tons of character.

Made it to Amarillo, Tx last night after a failed attempt to camp at Lake Meredith. I was the only person for 10 miles and there were big cat tracks at the camp site. Total of about 750 miles driven, burned .5 quarts which is on par for high mileage running synthetic. On to the Grand Canyon today.

Blue NB is sold. Stinky LE is getting converted to a rally car, while miata.net cries. Stay tuned for NA rallycross build!

Just collecting parts grabbed some daisy wheels, new shocks, and the tires came in today.

Hammered dark bronze spray paint for $7 looks good.

Got this done today.











It drives so much different now, body roll is huge. I can hit speed bumps at full speed which is nice. This whole process is weird to me, opposite of what I'm used to doing. I installed 4 Sensen shocks, MCU bump stops trimmed to 1 3/4 inch, shock boots, greased sways and suspension bolts, put on those 195/60r15 winter force st2 tires. Removed the r package lip and LE tie rods. It does ride very smooth. Next project is a skid plate and mud flaps.

Daylight pics please. Interested in seeing what the height looks like.
