Just keep in mind the exhaust heat coming through the transmission tunnel. Without carpet it's near unbearable for a DD. I taped carpet+insulation to the side. Looks very much like a race car, but it works wonders. And mine is a race car.

Have you tried Tower Paint?
I have not, do they have Mariner blue in a can, or are they just a good place to go to get a paint matched can?

Tower Paint can make anything you want as far as I remember. Prices are reasonable too.

It does get HOT. Shorts are pretty much necessary for long drives. Burnt legs are common.

Nice! A little too stripped for a street car, but clean nonetheless. Add in a dash pad, move that harness up under the dash, and make a flat door card and it'd be perfect.

Edit - and use the single brace from the red car previously posted.

edit: I don't think it's a Miata. It won't let me delete this post now. It's a nice interior though.

I don't know how you've managed to live with the tan interior that long. I abhorred it. Buying two cans of the Vinyl and Fabric paint, and getting some black carpet and seats was the best thing I ever did in aesthetics. Paint still holding very well after nearly a year, and I always drive with windows or top down (no A/C), and it's always parked in the sun.

And yes, I drove it for months like that...with boost gauge zip-tied to dash bar. I can say the car felt a good bit faster...

I think this thread is about NICE minimalist interiors. Not monstrosities such as that ^...

You order with your paint code, what ever way you want it.
