For now? Drive it as-is, and have fun. Longer term? K-swap.

hmhmhm. My friend is thinking the same after rebuilding the stock motor and supercharging it. Looks similar to yours but black interior and wide body kit.

Mine is what I'd call just a very clean, unmolested example. Older guy I bought it from was the second owner, and he kept meticulous records and receipts for purchases/upgrades such as the wheels/tires, Lo-Pro headlights, stereo stuff, etc.

I only looked into buying a Miata because my ten year old son is in love with them. He and I have already installed Tein coilovers on it (third day of ownership haha), the Momo Prototipo steering wheel, and changed the oil. Next up will probably be a good clutch kit with flywheel and rear main seal. It's not on the level of my EG, but it's very nice for a Miata seeing as how so many are beat to ****.

I really like the mothers cmx coating. It was raining today and had just stopped when I left work. From just driving down the road the water came off the car and by the time I got home the car was dry with no dirt or water marks on it

Well, it was yesterday. I replaced the main relay and pulled the injectors for cleaning. Car is a '95 Del Sol Si. Still won't crank, but I'm gonna keep working on it.

Wanna switch out the beat up 15's on it for 14's sometime. Fitment is terrible on the current wheels.

If its not cranking then you should check battery voltage and starter signal. If its cranking but won't run then you need to check for fuel and clean spark.

Ordered a butt-load of terminals and seals, and got a bunch of 18ga and 16ga GXL wire (assorted rolls) the other day. I decided on GXL because I felt TXL would have been too thin.

Damn! I think I'd buy a couple of junkyard harnesses for that price and then make my own connectors for the junk yard connectors

That part is covered already (yay eBay $35 harness!) which supplies all the needed connectors; but this is for a seamless and semi-tucked harness with minimal crimp and/or solder connections. I have to build this for future turbo installation.

I put the EH3 on skates, and sat the Miata in timeout in the corner. Pretty big car meet tomorrow, so gotta polish up the hatch.

Do you have to use 4 wheel dollies to put baby in a corner, or do 2 of them work just as well?

No way. Tired of F'ing around with 20 year old used wire. I'm doing all new, terminals too. I may recycle some housings but only if they are absolutely minty. Terminals are cheap anyway.

Where did you end up getting your wire from? I found this place, they have all of the color/stripe combos available so I can do a full factory colored loom: https://4rcustomswire.com/t/20-gauge-txl-wire

Need to drop a line to Prowire USA too, they stripe in house and ship to me next day since they are close. They don't list what stripe colors are available but I imagine it shouldn't be a problem. Gong to price out Tefzel as well but I expect it to be about 40% more expensive.

Currently using two, and it's pretty easy. Will probably buy two more to make it stupid easy.

I pull into the middle of the garage, jack up the entire back to slip the skates under the rear wheels, then lower into them. Then grab the spokes on my right rear wheel to swing the *** around. I can then use the steering wheel to crab walk it tight against the wall.

These are Harbor Freight $44.00/pair car dollies and they roll so well. I'm just trying to weigh the ease of four skates pushing wise against having to jack the rear *and* front to fit four skates as opposed to just one end of the cars with two skates.
