      Awwww!

      I'm sure plenty of people have converted by now but you're the first I've read about actually doing it. Most people just complain about the cost and buy aftermarket HID's for their halogens.

      Took my car in to the dealer for the courtesy checkup. They updated the software on the climate control unit supposedly. Everything else checked out.
      I need to remember to ask them to not wash it when I take it in for the oil change. Swirl marks galore.
      Waxed it when I got home.

      At least you didn't include "Roger..."

      On topic, after yesterday's production the only thing I'm doing is dropping off the fluids at my local auto parts store.

      Is there a proper way to dispose of a fuel filter?

      So I actually Googled this question and found this post in a thread

      "Originally Posted by bdk1976
      Put on a HazMat suit and use a set of long reach tongs to pick up the used filter and place it in a chemically resistant bag. Seal the bag and suspend in the middle of a 5 gallon bucket using fishing line. Mix up concrete, pour it in and let it cure. Wrap the resulting concrete in plastic and take to the local hazardous waste location and pay any associated fees...









      ...of course I would just skip all of that and throw the damn thing in the garbage can (might let it sit outside for a bit so the gas would evaporate if I was worried about it)."


      Had me rolling so I thought I'd share.

      Haha, yup no worries, will shoot some pictures of the whole car today. Glad a few people had done it so I had something to go on for the install. Straight forward enough though, just need to sort this CECM business, since the one I bought doesn't seem to want to accept my keys.

      Thanks again for the headlights Branman, I couldn't be more psyched to have them in!

      Washed it and polished the black crap off the exhaust tips for the first time in my ownership. Then spent the rest of my time and attention on the Miata.

      Update: Disconnected the Soundaktor. Nice change. Makes me want a more characterful exhaust now though.

      Nope. Just pulled off the rubber gasket/weather stripping and removed the two foam spacers on either side. Then just lifted up the plastic drip tray, reached in with my hands and unhooked the connector. Just for completeness, I put a small plastic bag over the now free connector and secured it with a rubber band. Then I put a small piece of double-sided tape on it and secured it to the body in front of the soundaktor unit so it wouldn't bounce around.

      Took me about 15 minutes from hood up, to hood down.

      Got home from Wookies in the Woods.

      Only took 58 pictures, but Dubbr and I took hours upon hours of Go Pro footage.

      Pissed I accidently took a picture instead of recorded when I went race speed on Hell Bender at night. Videos will take a lot of editing, but we will post them when they are ready.





      Letting them cool down after the Dragon.



      Dirty





      Pretty sure my brake fluid boiled, my clutch feels like **** now, but I didn't burn it.

      Yup drove ALL weekend hard. We would stop for an hour or two to let them cool down. Every picture with a hood popped isn't to be cool, it is to get cool.

      See what I did there?

      Between yesterday and today I upgraded my RNS-510 + Dynaudio system

      Installed:

      Audison bit.ten 5CH DSP under the passenger seat

      Arc audio XDi80.4 class D amp (120W x 4 CH into 2 ohms, and so tiny)

      Amp is feeding 2x Dynaudio x250 passive crossovers for the front stage (both nestled under the drivers seat along with the amp), and the amp also feeds directly to the 2 rear bass speakers (rear tweets disconnected)

      Done zero tuning, just enough to see how amazingly versatile the bit.ten is. But with EQ (finally!) flat and no delays, the stock dynaudio speakers just sound 100% better

      Now I just need to eliminate that high pitched whine that follows the RPMs

      Jacked it up to take out the RAI J spacer to see if it was the cause of the exhaust sound I'm hearing (it's not).

      we're just having fun, but WRONG would be: single bucket *(at least in the pic)
      you need 2 bucket method
      1. soap wash
      2. to rinse / catch all the dirt from your mitt *(get yourself nice sheepskin mitt)
