Fabricated a retaining ring matching the Zoom ring to go under the carpet and leather, similar to my Motolita setup but without the legs. No photos of this but it's sheet aluminum and has 5 holes. Glued a rubber o-ring inside into the leather (this is what the tabs are for at the narrow end of the boot), and I think that's about it. Anyways, final product:










If anyone is interested in the Motolita ring, support frame, and bolts, it will be for sale.

I rarely park out in the sun for longer than an hour, but it can get pretty hot. My solution is to wear gloves, but infant socks work as a barrier too lol

Two words: Beer Cozy. I put an old Enthuzacar cozy upside-down on my Voodoo knob when it's hot out, never have a problem.

Wow. With those rates I'm questioning why you didn't go with their GS version. Possibly because they ride higher?
They sure look nice, though. What are they replacing? Hearing your thoughts on them will likely further cement the route I take with ordering Xidas for my Miata.

Ride height. Plus having race valved shocks that are capable of higher spring rates.

First impressions. You guys. These ride sooo smoothly. I left the height as it came out of the box, which translated to around 3.75" F, 3.85" R. This is too low, at least for me. The plan was to end up at 4.75" F, 5" R, but I couldn't wait to get a feel for them out on the road immediately after installation. Even at the original ride height, omg. So much more than I ever expected. Not only is the ride smooth as butter, but handling is completely transformed. The amount of confidence these give me going through a corner is astounding.

I was able to get it to the target ride height +-1/8" last night, and the ride feels even better now. I'm simply shocked at how different the roadster feels now, in every aspect of the driving experience. It's so hard to find the right words to describe how happy I am with these.

I love how classy your car is! I follow you on Instagram but I like the extra info and insights I get from this thread. (Also I'm partial to forums over social media.)
