Hi everyone!

I´ve been following this forum since 2008, but have never posted. I´m finally introducing myself, my name is Jean and I´m from the sunny and warm Mallorca, Spain. I do own a Miata 1.8 Touring NBFL (2003), color Emerald Green (18J) with a hardtop and have done some basic modifications to it.

Unfortunately in January 2010, a big wheel came out from a truck and went rolling for 150m till it crashed onto the complete left side of the car… so the car still in the garage being repaired and painted completely.





I will upload some pictures of my Miata once it comes out from being repaired and painted.

Re: Hi from Spain...

Thanks for the note Vegard & kureiNA6Ce :)

Swapping airbag/seatbelt airbag wiring from UK version to standard European one (right to left & left to right).



I know it looks meesy, have to organize it better (I always say it, but never do it)



What you see here is my RX7 FD harness (used to wire up the turbo timer), part of my foglight installation, etc... as I said before, it looks messy... but everything works, on top I've added the S2000 wiring & still have to install the heater seat one :facepalm

By the way, no heated seat wiring behind the double radio din.



Working table...



Managed to swap the wiring of the leather seats from one side to the other, also made a custom wiring for the driver seat (which was passenger in UK) to connect the airbag/seatbelt one on. Now the instrument cluster doesn't show the 2 warnings that light up the flashing airbag and airbag/seatbelt.











And have finally installed the S2000 start engine button. Finally! yeahh... it toke some time, but was worth the effort.
Positions of the parts installed or relocated.

S2000 > where the hazard signal was (between the two air vents).



Hazard > where the cigar lighter was (at the bottom of the front console).



Cigar lighter > has been relocated into the glove box... yes, looks good might add up a second one to it.



and here some more photos:

Re: Hi from Spain...

Cappuccino botle (Nopro);



OEM Short shifter;



Miataroadster short shifter;





Redline Gear Oil;





Car in the air;


OEM Clutch and flyheel;









Drilling
oil pan (i´ve taken revlimiter instructions http://revlimiter.net/blog/2010/07/drilling-for-oil as a reference ) instead of using the fitting he is using, I have used an AN8 nipple.









Reinforcing the side brackets;



Initially I placed the turbo timer at the space I have at the fuse box... will find a better place to install it (When I will install the turbo electronic (Powercards) to the ECU, I will add up a cable from the turbo timer to read the Speed).

Re: Hi from Spain...

Thanks Shane :D

Got new parts =) I've been thinking for a long time, to swap my external 4 white bumper side reflector & 2 side repeaters for some dark ones... As I've already changed my tow-hooks & fuel lid for some black ones, I've taken the decision to go after this new set
:eek::eek:





My new black grill for the front of my bumper...







soon soon, more photos with everything installed :roll:
