wtf?



I don't know how you're going to do it on a miata, but I recommend running everything through the frame rails (if we have them), buying the appropriate assortment of primary wire color, you probably don't have enough space to flip the brake booster inside the firewall, and a ton of patience.

Its a waste of ******* time btw. If I could have all the hours back that I spent polishing and running wire, umm...I'd have like...um...a lot of time back.

i love the super clean ones where it looks like there's a motor and trans just sitting there...and looks like there's no possible way that thing cranks.
