    Some more cage work done. Hopefully my friend can finish it for me as I had to move out of SoCal for an indefinite period of time. The 996 was totaled recently as well, so I got a chance to go back and work on the black miata.




    Being my new daily, its duty includes towing trailers across an entire state. This required preparation.
    New coils:


    Some new speakers and a head unit (not pictured):


    And ready to haul a little over 1000lbs to NorCal from SoCal:

    Eh, got me there with no major hiccups. The only issue I had was overheating at over 4500 rpm, but that was it. Oh, and the windy sections of the road were not fun.

    Hey all-

    Things are changing next year, and while I'll still document the build- it will be in the form of video on my YouTube channel. The plan is to build the little car to be able to take on Pikes Peak. Here are the details:
