Wax, suspension detail, engine bay detail, dremeled and polished the aluminum upper front bumper mount on my '05 MSM.

No joke! I WAS planning on driving it down to Macon today, but it's pouring down rain, and old azenis are scarey in any standing water lol. And there's a leak in the window seals, so she's staying under the cover until this weekend. Points 1 here we come!

spent all day trying to replace the soft top with an aftermarket one that didnt have holes cut into it...

only to find out after countless hours or wrangling it into place, that they sent me the wrong one, and it wont reach the windshield to latch, and wont lay down flat all the way either :(

soo.. tomorrow its coming out, and the hardtops going back on... and really unfortunate, its perfect convertible weather right now...

So your miata is basically a "good weather only" car? :D
well, that and the fact that the old RT215 azenis are freakin scarey the second you hit just 1mm of standing water. They're actually VERY good on a wet track, just not if there's any puddles. I actually took the rear sway bar OFF yesterday (as opposed to just disconnected), and this morning after I get done working course setup, I'm planning on dropping it about 3/4" or so all the way around to settle down the body roll that comes from it being up so high. I'm hardly hitting bump stops right now (stupid 550# springs that I love so much lol), so it shouldn't hurt to drop it a bit more. Worst case, I don't like it and I bring it back up some.

1st 'real' autocross for her today. Had some tire-rubbing issues, but nothing that can't be fixed in about 30 minutes. I ended up 2nd in class (got beat by a girl in a well prepped CRX by .024 seconds). I'm really pleased by how the car felt, and I'm starting to learn how to drive a light, tail happy, tossable RWD car, and it's SO much fun! Hopefully someone got some pictures. My last (and best) run felt so good. The car's really neutral w/ a hint of oversteer on throttle which is about how I like it. All in all, an awesome day spent dodging cones (thumb)

Mine stayed in the garage all day. :(

But arriving by UPS Ground soon: blue NGK wires, fresh NGK plugs, Axxis metal master pads.

Sounds fun...Any chance you can post some pics of your baby in action?

I put her back under her cover last night after I drover her to and from work :)

I have yet to find the time to appy all my suspension goodies and new body parts on (working my fanny off.... getting ready for the birth of my son... moving to a new home).

So... for the time being, my miatar is a virtual "rat racer" daily driver.(rei)

I should be re-rolling my front passenger fender, and rolling the rest. Why re-rolling you may ask? My co-driver last weekend managed to slide the car over a cone that got caught between the tire and the fender, so instead of having a lip like this 'L' it's just like this '|' for about 3 inches at the top of the fender arch lol

Also ordered a few parts for the tranny I've got sitting in my storage closet....
Clutch Disc B630-16-460 *
Release Collar B622-16-510 *
Clutch Pilot Bearing F801-11-303 *
Pressure Plate B622-16-410 *
Shifter Dust Boot M514-17-475
Insulation F801-64-495
Top Dust Boot NA01-64-481A *

Hello State tax refund! (hi) Goodbye State tax refund (drive2). It's ok, I'll get to keep my federal refund! Oh wait...good seat sliders (using stockers right now), harness and a roll bar. s***. There went that one too (drive2) (rofl)
