      Added gauge cluster surround pod & boost gauge, CF mirror caps, CF shift knob, machined oil filler cap.
      Two weeks back, CAI & new filter.

      Installed 6K DDM tuning bulbs. Kind of wish I went with 5K instead. Light output of 6K vs 4300 is less, or it appears to be less. Washed and sprayed some instant detailer on her today.

      Were the 4300k the OEM or another brand. My switch from OEM to 6k was a big difference in output for the better.

      Decided to make my own "R" out of my Miata. Dropping it off on Tuesday for a cage, new race motor, clutch/fw, diff mounts, race seat, harness, exhaust, and brakes. It already has a header, adjustable shocks, and a FSB.

      1. Put summer wheels/tires back on the R last night. It was 56 degrees F yesterday and forecast calls for upper 30s and low 40s for the next week and little/no precipitation. After that, mid 30s. I was tired of wasting/shredding my winter tires (Blizzak WS60). This winter has sucked plums! Where is the snow?!?!
      2. Oil change last night.
      3. Worked on a sticking caliper last night - a result of my bad wheel bearing.
      4. Lost passenger side moose decal this morning. Guess I have to drive slower (I wonder what their speed rating is?) and order some replacements... It was on last night, but noticed it was gone this morning when I gave it a quick wash (soapy pressure wash). Thankfully, have a spare one in the garage.

      Bought new strutbearings, xc90 spring seats, xc70 reinforced front rear bushings from the local volvo dealer. Ordered powerflex for the front lca bushing. Still don't have all.. New ball joints and tie rods would be nice to change when everything else is being changed.

      And TME springs in the same time.. IPD sways is aldready bought..

      Expensive but when all is done i hope it will run like a queen again. NO engine mods until suspension and brakes is perfect.
