Thank you! The car's off at the shop right now getting paint, but should be finished by the end of the week. I'm sticking with the standard red, but it'll really look a lot better. She's far from finished, but in the mean time, I've got plenty to do.

It seems like I keep missing with my seats. These ones are also a bit tight and cause my right leg to fall asleep after 30 minutes. So I'm going back to the 914 seats for a while, until I can find a good condition pair to replace them or I have them rebuilt into the Renegade Customs Touring seats

I think the 914 seats covered with what you used on the door panels would look OUTSTANDING!!!
That's something I've been considering for a while now. I've got a local shop that's quoted me $700 for both seats, since I already have the materials. I'll probably do this once the built engine is dropped in

It's been a minute since I updated this thread. Life's been busy especially with studying for promotion boards, BLC, and getting stationed in Korea.

So far the car has been a blast with the new engine, but unfortunately a suspected faulty oil pump resulted in zero oil pressure one morning. I didn't run it at all once I saw it, but it will hopefully be up and running soon. Prior to that, we dyno'd at 279whp but ran out of injector, so that's next on the upgrade list. I thought the 610's would be good for about 320whp, but apparently not.

In other news, I was able to score a piece of unabtanium in the form of a brand new KG Works gauge cluster. This will look perfect with my gauges and Prototipo wheel. Being away from the old girl for a year is gonna suck, but at least I can save money for the other upgrades I want.

Oh yeah, also got a MiataRoadster shifter. Now I can definitely see why it's more expensive than other's. It's the best shifter on the market for a Miata, hands down. Nothing else even comes close to it

I've been enjoying them quite a lot. Zero lateral support, but they're very comfortable street and touring seats.

Bummer that they don't have decent lateral support. They look very OEM (since they, of course, are).

Yeah, there's a company in Vegas that rebuilds them for better lateral support. They're called Renegade Hybrids, and they do some pretty good work from what I can tell

Hope they do good work. Their website is jank as all get-out :(
Same, I haven't sent them off yet. And yeah, but they're a big name in the 911 and 914 communities for their LS conversions, hoping to send them off by mid 2021
