Sharka has yet another different set of gauges installed. I call this set Version Warbird.

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.
I woke up around 5am ready to go. No alarm clock. No trace of sleepiness remained. Nothing but a plan in my head. That plan involved driving around the downtown alleys and taking pics of my new Star Sharks.

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.

This is my Miata. There are 900,000 like it in the world, but this one is mine. I call it Sharka, and it is my best friend. It is my life…

This past solstice (12/21/2010), I found myself standing out in the middle of the desert under almost complete cloud cover in the middle of the night. With my camera.
854 words on my newest steering wheel! It’s rare. It came from Japan. Fans of the M2-1001 Cafe Roadster might enjoy this post a whole lot.
December 10th, 2010 — Parts Review
I wanted something to go with my RS Factory Stage front tow hook, and this beauty made by ClubRoadster sponsor RyokuRob was the object of my desire.
I picked up and installed a pair of these FM shock spacers a while ago. Didn’t get around to posting about it till a couple of months later. Perhaps they’re not as exciting to me as a Japanese tail light panel or new turbo parts. Or maybe I’m sad that I’m admitting defeat and raising Sharka slightly. For whatever the reason, I’ve been putting off this blog post.
This is no fault of the shock spacers themselves. They work GREAT.
It hasn’t quite been two months since painting (I was supposed to wait at least that long before applying vinyl), but I could not wait to install these tail lights any longer. Plus, the nice weather is due to go away soon in favor of winter. So. Without further delay, I present Sharka’s New Ass!
