I've never paid much attention to body work and stuff. But there's no doubt that a fresh paint job is attractive. Can't wait to see more of the wire tuck!

Thanks for sharing this is awesome.

PICS GALORE!!!!i decided to stop being lazy and post new update pics
finally got around to tucking the wires to the inner fender walls. wires are held down with some cable tie down thingies.
did a spacerless re-route also, alot of custom work was done for the re-route.\
enjoy the pics








while the dash was out i had a friend come by to install my new viper alarm. my hard to reach location where i have the siren.


These next 2 pics show how i tucked the ABS sensor wire lines. No loose wires here!




spacer-less reroute!
the two sensors that are screwed in the head are the gauge cluster and green is for the ecu.
the other sensor is for my seperate AUX water temp gauge.
Feedneck was extended because of fitment issues involving the ecu's sensor being to close to the neck, not allowing the hose to slip on.


a little goodie bag filled with t-bolt clamps and some AN fittings and custom -4AN line for my turbo feed. All this was bought locally! awsome right!? A friend told me about this place a while ago and i finally went and man i went on a shopping spree


consider these update pics as just teasers though, there more where these came from =P

I have to agree with your friend, I too would take an Evo over the miata. What's the story on the oil catch can, where to buy, price, etc? Should look sleek when it's done, good luck!

Royal Brass is the ****, i had no idea they sold T-Bolt clamps though. You have a 1.6, what are you going to do for fan control via the "front" thermoswitch?
