The TSI's are fairly rescent, KG Works Japan. Super light weight.

The door panels are from Nielex Japan. Aluminum, powder coated red. No longer made, Very, very light.

Here is another pic of the rear, the door panels, and the center console. I dont really care for the rear lights either, but it is different, and they were free!

The center console is a stainless steel DDM works double din box. It has two gauge holes for the gauges and a slot for the din size radio. Go to www.rspeed.net to check them out. If you have a 94-97 then you will have to modify the center radio surround a little. 90-93 it will fit with out mods.
The gauges are Stewart Warner A/F and Boost. Red Illumination to match the rest of the dash lights.

The A/C panel is Art Works Dewa, Japan, again check Rspeed. The combo swith for pop up and hazards is a nielex japan plug n play unit.

I have a blower, but Ok, here you are. The engine compartment as of two weeks ago. The MSD is gone and replaced by a Jackson Racing BTC.

I meant the Garage vary Tail Light Conversion.

Sweet! Love that valve cover.
I thought by saying "Im holding out for a TL conversion" you ment they were coming out with a new coversion that i didn't know about.

clubroadster might be having another group buy?
Keep an eye on this thread if interested.

I missed the group buy on the Garage Vary deal. I am not ready for it yet though. The paint is original and it is starting to show its age, except the passenger door where it got a minor dent and was resprayed.The car is going to need to be painted here in the next year or two, and then I will put on the GV lights.

Paint looks to be in great shape! I definately love the wheels. I'm a sucker for gold/bronze wheels. Interior is a bit overdone IMO, but if you like it, more power to ya. Have fun with it, and get that silly M45 outta there.

It is hard to get the whole interior on camera. I am going with the vintage look, ala Triumph/ MG. No wood dashes though. Local guys at the Dyno shop here in Tampa call it the 1962 Miata.

The M45 is plenty for me right now. No need for anymore power. I dont race, dont drag race, dont auto X, it goes from home to work. Shortly it wont be even doing that. I will be working from home in about 2 weeks.
