From beginning to end, installing hood vents took 7 hours solo. Simple, but not easy. And yes, making that first cut with the angle grinder was bloody terrifying.
A big thank you to gmporschenut for putting my dimensions and concept into .stl format so as to be 3D printable. I really appreciate it man. If you’re ever in western North Carolina I will owe you a beer. For the life of me I could not figure it out on my own.
This is well and truly stuck. Unsure how to proceed. Plus some project updates
I can’t tell if this is a serious autocross monster or a stance build. Either way, I actually kind of like it! Always the answer.
Sippin Gatorade from a straw while laying down in the tub, hot water raining down, Alina Barez streaming from the Bluetooth speaker. Lights off, pitch black. Dying. In other news, I did a thing! Check out my latest Miatafication.
With about 30 bolts soaking in penetrating oil. Today I’m commuting in the Vette. Later I’ll install new shift kit, front/rear sway bars, endlinks and hopefully eek out another couple millimeters of ride height in the front so I can stop tearing up my fender with the winter tires. Tis a good friday
I do not own the right to this picture. Thank you Volkswagen.com.sg
Sparco Sprint. PCI One Piece Super Low Race Mount.
Now available for the passenger too! Such a crucial roadtrip modification. Bonus points because the passenger side phone mount makes for some pretty great in-car footage. iOttie seriously makes some fantastic mounts.

This. Update: I do think it could work and be cool if done properly, however I don’t plan on doing it. I had my wipers completely off for a few days, as I was painting them and got used to how much sleeker it was without them. So I started looking at lower profile wiper blades and then I stumbled upon a thread with…
Bonus points if you get my reference in the title.
Li-ion tools are too expensive. Problem solved. The Miata is now a mobile workstation. I have some *lowers voice* bigly plans for the little roadster over the next few weeks, and this will help immensely.
Today I took a step back and realized that the me of three years ago would never have believed himself capable of doing all the projects I’ve tucked under my belt. Somehow, my little roadster has become a *cool* ride that gets compliments from practically everybody. The feels, man.
My first foray into both car wiring and audio. There are a few issues I’m not exactly sure how to deal with but the amp, sub, crossovers, and passenger side tweeter are all mounted and wired up.
And today, I finally fixed it.
What do you get? Let me show you. I did some projects today, and looked back on where my happy little roadster started. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to not have a Miata, guys.
Halogens vs. LEDs Review
This might sound weird, but wrapping the shoulders over the harness bar—getting the loops just right, and adjusting for my height/size—was probably my favorite car-related work I’ve done. Something about it is just therapeutic.
