scored a toyo racing radiator for 150$
just needed some TLC




cleaning it and sanding it down






it looked good but....i hate shiny metal...so..




removed my crappy slimfan and replaced it with the OEM fan..but first..it needed to be cleaned




as i said, cna't stand shiny stuff..so it'll be getting the black out treatment




final product

some updates:
decided that if i was ever going to go on a long trip, i should have a radio.
so i installed an AMP


swapped suspension from NA to NB with tophats. it raised the car quiet a bit but it rides so much better on non-blown shocks




removed the plastic lining on the doors and cleaned the goo


proof that the car is not always parked:


500 miles on the break in


further cleaning the wheels

decided to roll back the miles to match my engine break in miles.
don't worry, i wrote down the current mileage somehwre safe

small step by step
remove cluster
remove cluster clear plastic (has to come off with black bezel)
remove 4 screws holding the gauge (two are big, two small)
rmeove the niddle
rmeove the trip numbers
remove the rod keeping the plastic tabs from turning
with a flat head, bend back where the middle rod is being held.
somehow rmeove the al the numbers

play around with them until you figure out how to turn them back.
it took me a min but i figure dit out..just too hard to explain.
put back together.

only illegal if:
1. i sell the car and claim it has 1000 miles.
2. i sell the car and state it has less miles than it does.

i wrote down the actual mileage in the cluster so if you remove it you'll be able to add both and get actual chassis mileage.
i also highly doubt anyone will believe me when i say my car has 1000 miles

Its not illegal in Texas if the car milage is labeled EXEMPT which most if not all NA miatas here are because of age.

Similar here in Florida. Most if not all NA's nowadays are mileage exempt around here.

Many states work the same way... Over something like 10 years old in TN, the mileage is marked EXEMPT (or similar) when you transfer the title for a sale. This applies even if the mileage is known to be accurate on the speedometer.

tackling my fuel issue, i decided to rewire the pump with thicker wire.
this is the wire that took a crap:


the blue wire is what will be replacing

Stock: 16AWG
New: 12AWG
drilled two holes to pass the wires through. i will be installing little grommets to protect the wire


the grommets:


since the wire wasn't thick enough to fill the hole and i dind't want to use any kind of glue or epoxy, i opted to wrap a piece of heatwrap around the cable to make it thicker.
i should'vd gone for smaller grommets or thicker wire but this is what i had to work with so whatever






i opted to install these butt connectors. i kept them this way as to never be able to connect them backwards
