Nice car! I see you've replaced the fuel filler door as well...
Thank you.

The fuel filler door was a dealer installed option. I'm normally not a fan of chrome but it ties in nicely with the other chrome trim on the SE.

I finally did something about the stock 4x4 stance that plagues all factory issued Miatas. I've been leaning towards coilovers but decided they were a bit overkill for my driving needs. I went with the tried and true Koni Sports paired with Progress springs and sprinkled with 36/58 GWR bumpstops. They are very popular so I figured that I couldn't go wrong. I haven't had a chance to play with the settings yet but so far...what a difference! I had an even bigger smile than normal when driving home from the shop last night. lol I will have to drill holes in the FSTB brackets so I can make easy adjustments in the future or I could take this opportunity to upgrade the FSTB? hahahaha

Thanks Nik!

No front spoiler anytime soon. I have some maintenance items to work on first, plugs and a new VC gasket as the current one has sprung a small leak. While it was at the shop for the shock/spring install, I had them flush the brake fluid and do a custom alignment to GWR's specs.

Jeff, any new mod plans for the spring? Right around the corner?
