I received a couple comments about my hacked up boot (what we call the vinyl cover for the soft top here in the States) after my last post, so I thought I’d give a quick how-to before I remove the soft top and render the boot useless. There’s not a whole lot to this mod. Still, a half hour of searching on miata.net revealed that there was not a lot of info out there about this.
Every winter for as long as I’ve been a hardtop owner, I’ve dreaded it. The hardtop. Being closed in. The squeaks, the rattles, the confinement.
The fiberglass prison….

Hot on the heels of the 1002-style pedal review, comes an installation manual! For the same pedals!!! Those with too much free time on their hands will love it.
The winter weather has eaten into my car blogging. Not much desire to go out into a cold garage and twiddle with cold tools. BUT!!!! Spring has sprung. Time for a parts review. This time, it’s a set of Rev9’s 1002-style pedals.

Speedhunters is having a Reader Rides thing all this month (Feb 2010). It’s a sort of guest blog thing. You send in photos of your car and write a blog post for Speedhunters. They announced this about 2 weeks prior.
So, I dug through my pix, tried to arrange them in a logical flow, and spent about 2 hours writing up Sharka’s story. I zipped up the whole bundle and fired off the email. I crossed my fingers.
Whenever Sharka wears the hardtop, my thoughts always turn toward hardtop security. Like, how to make sure Sharka is still wearing his hardtop when I come back at the end of the day. It’s a conundrum. And as far as I can tell, NO ONE has a security method that’s up to snuff.
A full product review of Rev9’s M2-1028 style Miata side mirrors. Pix, Uglydolls, and my special brand of cartalk. Not to be missed.

A full photoshoot of Sharka in the abandoned AT&SF Railyard. Could there ever be a better place for car pix?

A final (maybe?) post about my Elise seats. By popular demand – tracings of my rear seat brackets! In PDF format! I’m pretty proud.

What happens when early model Miatas get angry? Hilarity ensues.
