A whole post about a horn button. I… have a sickness.
Thanks to a hub and Project-G, Bucky gets to partake of the steering wheel collection! An easy Daikei NB hub install that I somehow took 20 photos of is inside.
You didn’t expect me to live with the cracked, glossy coating on my old Prototipo steering wheel did you?
Another steering wheel for my collection. It’s an addiction.
My old quilted vinyl door panels were starting to look rather cheap to me. Meanwhile, I had about 1/3 of a hide of leather sitting in my parts shed. A plan formed…
It’s nice when you’re able to press your horn button and have noise come out. My Momo Master recently stopped doing that. I resorted to some exploratory surgery to make things work again.
Sharka gets a new part, my store gets a new product, and I get an incredible sense of satisfaction. Retro Hazard Switches! They’re the new thing. Come check out the pix. You might gloss over the bad writing.
This blog post has been 6 months in the making. That’s how long I’ve been working on removing OEM parts from my Retro window switches. And finally, I’m there!
By OEM parts, I mean the stock window switch. I used to hack them up and add the metal plate and industrial switches. It was a fine thing to do, but I was slowed by not being Mazda. I didn’t have an unlimited supply of switches to hack apart. I had to wait for folks to mail me back their cores so I could make more switches. Sometimes it was a long wait.

You will never find more ranting and praising of a rearview mirror anywhere else on the Internet. This page cranks the Roadster insanity up to 11. For a plain-looking mirror that happens to have a couple of lights. Interested?

Sharka’s metal door sills are really old and crappy. When I got them, they also lacked the desirable feature known as flatness. If I remember right, they came out of a very very wrecked car for the price of shipping. I bent and beat them back into shape as well as I could. I’ve had them for about 6 years.
It was time to modify them.
