Sound system build completed, I never would have believed our little cars could sound so great with the top down! Lots of small changes too. Put in an inverter so I don't get yelled at for having an extension cord hanging out my condo window haha

Waiting on a few packages before I completely redo my cooling system. Hoping to have everything this week, but vendors are all being super slow....

You?

Bleeding brakes today and the wheels will go back on. BFW spoiler In and done. Schroth Profi II harness are installed, OMP WRC-R installed for driver and still waiting for OMP TRS-E for the passenger. Also new splitter, ducting and monster 2 speed fan that pushes 4000cfm. Then almost have all the parts to assemble the block of the race motor. Plan on building the head over the summer while Matt @ hellafab builds me a twin scroll manifold for the EFR 7163 TS

Question- is one of you rolling around in a Montego Blue with a garage vary style rear finish panel, double horizontal rollbar and low pro headlights..? Spotted on highway 202 almost daily, along with a blue and white camo NA

Oh and Matt, I need to stay away from your build thread. The boost bug is calling my name...

Been dragging my feet at getting my cage done and seats mounted, but I finished cutting up my rear shelf/seat belt towers the other night. Now I need to bust *** on my cage and just get it done. I was supposed to have the car back on the ground by April but that looks to be a stretch

Yeah I saw your IG pics of the shelf, one big grinder slip haha. Im free to help in 10 weeks after the fire academy but that probably wont help much being well into the nice weather by then.

Hey guys, my car was broken into last night and the interior somewhat stripped. If you see anyone trying to sell two 4 point Schroth ASM harnesses, two red bride knockoff buckets (slightly different passenger and driver), garage star seat mounts and a flat bottom Sparco wheel with yellow horn buttons... Please let me know. I've just been informed my insurance doesn't cover any of this, and I'm unsure of what else to do

Anyone got a spare set of NA seats floating around? My friend just bought a NB1, and she sits too low. I'm thinking I might try swapping in some NA seats and adding in spacers. Would need to be non-fomectomied seats.

they were looking out for yoir safety. 5 or 6 point harnesses only.

Progressive is one of the companies that allows for enormous amounts of additional value coverage. Pretty inexpensive too. I had my miata ensured for 20,000 dollars over nada value for 60 bucks per month on top.

I was happy with schroth's ASM 4-points for street use. If I ever tracked it though two sub belts would have been installed immediately! But yeah, jokes on them. They just helped me simplify and add lightness. I never much liked the bride knockoffs anyways... Will have to find a better seat next go around
