The uber UBER NB gauge install how-to.

After I posted my NA gauge face install, I got a few requests for an NB version. And I wanted to do one of these anyway before I started selling NB gauges in my store.

So…

I proudly present the revlimiter.net NB Miata Gauge Face Install

This humble dash is about to get the star treatment.

In this post, I repair and restore a 20 year old Miata dashboard from the 1.6 liter era. It took me a week and there’s a twist at the end. Check it out.

Robbins Cloth Top Install

Bucky's old torn and weathered soft top.

Anyone who’s ever owned a car without a metal roof has thought about this topic. What do you do when the old soft top is done and in need of swapping out? Go to full time hardtop or buy a new piece of material to keep the rain off your head? Since I already have one hardtop Roadster, I decided to invest in some new cloth for my 2001 Miata and tackle one of the few maintenance tasks left that I’ve never done.

Tie Rod End Swap

93LE tie rod kit! (Helpers not included)

They help address the bump steer issues on a lowered car and it’s one part of a Miata that I’ve never replaced. That second reason alone is enough to justify the job.

Suzuki Cappuccino (Nopro) Washer Fluid Bottle

There's a monster at the end of this post.

Installing a Suzuki Cappuccino washer fluid bottle into a left hand drive Miata? With parts found in an abandoned train yard? Sounds like madness. But then again, I take pictures of toys in public like it was perfectly normal.

Radiator Mouth Shrouding – 1st version

High tech radiator ducting material

My Koyo radiator is doing great with my spiffy new turbo. Sharka is staying pretty cool. Except for at highway speeds. When cruising around on the freeways at 75 mph, the coolant temps seem to hover in the 200-205 *F range. That… bothers me….

Air Compressor Drain Valve Mod

Failed and rusty drain valve.

700 words on replacing a broken air compressor drain valve with a totally awesome ball valve. Because what’s better than spending $30 to fix a $3 broken part? Not much, my friends, not much.

Except for doing all of this with the help of a small robotic scorpion.
