Should I put a double din in the miata or is that just asking for an opportunity to have my soft top replaced... and the HU, if you get my drift.

I guess, it;d be a good excuse to buy a hard top.

Zeep, Trackday Picnic??????

Id have to get a few things ironed out but... its within the realm of possibility.

I bought a roll of HPDE and a rivet gun(ducting), still need an aftermarket thermostat, need to reconfigure the clutch system, install the new MBC and give it a good shake down.

:coffee:

Day 352 of waiting for Teg to purchase TDP tickets.

Got my car turned around and up on jack stands. It ran for all of 5 minutes and started dripping coolant.
Picking up right where we left off.

Got a little laundry list of stuff to do but its all relatively easy.

New boost controller in, new radiator comes today, got the clutch line bled with new fluid.

Need to do the thermostat, ducting and splitter and call er good. I guess it wouldn't be the worst thing to get a professional tune as well. Probably due for an alignment as well.

Thoomin on this stuff. Fuck May, Ill be done in April.

Trying to decide if I want to replace my motorcycle with something more modern/safe or buy an OEM hardtop for the miata. Last year, it was turbo kit vs motorcycle.

Theyre about the same price when it comes to hardtop vs down payment.

The hardtop is apparently worth like 2 seconds on a two mile track in aero gains and is generally sweet. The new motorcycle is far less likely to kill me than my old one is.

Other than at the track, Ill almost never want the hardtop on and I have no convenient place to keep it.

Decided I will probably buy a shitty aftermarket top and replace the motorcycle. Ill almost never have the hard top on and its really only to serve a purpose.

I have a little bonus coming, I might be taking a new position here relatively soon and I still havent done my taxes. Should all be in the cards.

We're currently receiving our first good rain of the season.

I decided to forgo the splitter and build a quick/shitty undertray for now. I just want to get it back on the ground and start getting it shaken down.
