Mufasa in Training
Oh man...always wanted a Bikini top!
I'm running a 365mm wheel and I think it's a bit bigger that I would like but very similar to the stock size. I plan to get a 3330mm in the future. I have the NRG short hub and quick release. They put the wheel just around the stock position as well.What size steering wheel & hub combo are you using? I plan on either a 13" or 14" (more old xke type wheel). I'm not sure if a 13" will be too small and as far as the hub goes I want the wheel in a stock position or further away from me, not closer. How do you like your gauges? I was planning to have a custom set made with the 1 o-clock 11 o-clock positioning as well and I think I'm going with imitation burl wood on the gauges and tombstone as I do not have your talent to cut my own. You did an Outstanding Job!!! I may go with engine turned aluminum rather then wood I'm not sure yet.
No way, I read through your build thread and realized Ive seen your car around and actually think I live right down the street from you haha. Small world.Spotted you at Lowes last night! Actually parked right next to you, but wasn't in my Miata.
Great looking car! I really like what you have done with it.
Thanks! The 914 are actually pretty comfortable. They have lots of padding in the seat cushion. I have been on a few road trips with them without issue. My biggest complaint would be the lack of bolstering. I know the 914GT seats have nice bolstering but are much harder to find and more experience. There are also aftermarket alternatives to the GT seat if you wanted to go that route.nice build!! The DIY boot cover, cluster, and center console looks amazing!
Couple of questions for ya if you don't mind..
how supportive are the 914 seats? I've seen these in a miata before but was never able to get an opinion as to how supportive they are, at least in the butt area.
Were you able to wrap the hardtop with one entire piece of vinyl?
and how good is Hattie B's???
