Vintage Side Stripes

Thoroughly Modern

New vintage rocker stripes for Sharka and a whole vinyl install how-to.


Sharka’s Vent Rings For Sale

Sharka's Vent Rings

I have another cool item in my store. The same vent rings Sharka has worn since I bought him back in 2000. Not replicas or recreations. The Same Ones. Produced by the same shop.

I met up with my buddy Josh of Lunchbox PhotoWorks the other day to take some car photos. But not just any car photos. Rig photos.


NB Gauge Face How-To

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.

Japanese Quilted Goodness

Nakamae quilted transmission tunnel cover.

Nakamae They’ve made high end Eunos Roadster interior parts for longer than I’ve been involved in the hobby. And that’s kind of a long time! I’ve lusted after their stuff since the first day I saw it, but the opportunity to buy any of their fine products never arose.

Until now.


New Gauge Face How-To

My uber gauge install DIY

Just a quick blog post to point you to the thing that has taken up most of my Saturday – the NA Miata Gauge Face Install.


NA6 Dash Restoration Project

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.


2011 Gauges – Version Rossa

What's this?

In between gauge face commissions, I’ve been working on a new set for myself. Sharka has been wearing his old gauges (called “Revolution”) since around April of last year. I’ve been feeling a little tired of them and craving something a little more vintage looking. Something flashy and yet minimalist. Something that really complemented my KG Works gauge cluster.

To borrow a line from Jeremy Clarkson: And here it is.


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.


Ode to a Bikini Top

My God, it's full of stars.

I love my hardtop. I mean seriously. It’s my hardtop. I don’t call it “Sharka’s hardtop” but rather “mine”. It transforms the Miata from a floppy noodle into a real car. It offers a barrier against skin cancer and the weather. It looks gorgeous.

And then I got the bikini top.
