It was nice to unload the Miata from the roll back yesterday and nicer still to take a look at it this morning.
I spent the day re-installing all the lights on every corner. The headlights were in but all the others needed to be installed. I took off the rear valance so I could get the some of the masking tape off and then make certain the license plate lights were mounted properly. All the lights received new bulbs.
Next it was time to get the windows back in the doors and the outside handles installed.
I have converted from electric to manual windows and from electric outside mirrors to manuals that are a lot lighter and smaller. I have also eliminated the radio so out went the speakers. That means I could dispense with all the wiring in the doors. More weight gone.
I put on a Touge Run front spoiler. It is urethane so it should be able to deal with bumps and curbs better than say, fiberglass. It is a bit old school in terms of looks, but that complements the rear spoiler.
The outside rear view mirrors look nice. Real feather weights.
The passenger side air bag (SRS) was removed to save weight and it really isn’t necessary with the six point harness and racing seats that are going in.
A good friend made a duplicate cover that I glued in place with RTV.
Finally I was able to get the Beat Rush aluminum panel in that covers under the engine. It is a very nice piece. My car didn’t have the factory plastic under panel and the Beat Rush wasn’t much different in price and does a much better job.
Tomorrow I want to complete the ABS panels for the doors and then work on installing the Momo seats.
