It gets worse. I’ve not installed it since before I got the Blackbird Fabworx rollbar. I believe I last had the bikini top on […]

• NA6 Dash Cup Install
I added a new part to the store, that means adding an installation document for it. The Gauge Cup install is as complete as I can make it. Lots of cutting required, but worth the effort.

• NB Window Switch Install
It's only 6 wires and a bit of plastic cutting, but the NB Window Switch install is still far too complicated for what it is. Instructions definitely required.

• Hazard Switch Install
It's not the most difficult part in the world to put into a Miata, but it's always nice to have some pix to help out. The Hazard Switch install is not to be missed.

• NA HVAC Panel
The tips and tricks necessary to swap your tired stock HVAC panel face with something a little nicer - NA HVAC Install.

• NB S2000 Start Button
Got an NB? Want an S2000 start button? Well I got ya covered! I wrote an NB version of my S2000 start button install. All the same in-depth info, but with NB specific directions.

• NB Gauge Face Install
I followed up my NA Gauge Install with an even-better gauge face install for 99-05s. Even better means about 42 pix. Photos of damn near anything you could need a photo of. NB folks don't need to feel neglected anymore.

• NA Gauge Face Install
I've installed enough gauges in my time. I finally wrote a full gauge face install for 90-97s. It is as complete as I can possibly make it. Tons of text and 23 photos. Hopefully, it helps some NA people.

• Garage Vary Tail Light Install
This beautiful tail light kit comes with all-Japanese instructions with almost no illustrations. I knew I had to do a full installation.

• Side Winker Install
Every market but the US gets cool little blinkers in their fenders. I bought some and was having stress about cutting up my precious fenders, so I thought I'd make a how-to documenting every possible part of this small project. Be warned, I played with my toys on-camera again.

• Low Profile Headlight Wiring
I installed my Moss lowpro lights in my new 95 and wrote up a wiring diagram article in place of my old headlight info article. Check it out.

• S2000 Start Button
In 2001, I wrote up the how-to for Miata.net for installing an S2000 start button in a 90-97 Miata. I've now updated it. Check out the new S2000 start button install.
