Damn, I guess I never needed to look for a 1.8 header but I found my 1.6 rather quick on craigslist. I might have overpaid a tad at $300 but I wanted it then.

Try the miata club on facebook or a miata dismantler.

NB2 wouldn't really be worth the $100 unless you had the Cali spec NB1 manifold. If I were in your shoes, I'd get one of those RB copy headers off of eBay for $150ish. I ran one of those forever without any issues.

Power gain over my stock NB2 manifold was like 3-4hp on stock ecu...pretty standard for a miata header

Quick Q for the detailing buffs in here.

Any suggestions on how to get into the textured bits and really clean the dirt?


I'm fairly certain clay will get cheese-grated given the texture below the trim line.

Pad plus cutting compound? Or can I use elbow grease before hand?

Default THE quick question - quick answer thread

I would try me best with a clay bar and then use your cutting compound of choice. My preference would be meguires m105 and a waffle weave polishing pad. Preferably a yellow or orange color. The colors mean different levels of cutting on them. Then top it off with a polishing compound. I would say your would have better results with a waffle weave pad specifically over a normal pad.

Something like this.

Thanks Andy. I wasn't aware that waffle pads existed.
The last time I did any sort of paint correction/polishing/sealing/waxing/whatever was about a decade ago.
Seems like newer stuff. I'll pick a pad up and give it a try.

I don't know what your particular setup is for paint correction but as much hate as harbor freight has for cheap shit their dual action polisher is pretty decent. My harborfrieght also happens to carry meguires stuff (which I found out about last week). I had to get my waffle weave pad online I think from chemical guys. I am pretty sure amazon carries it through chemical guys as well.

I picked up a HF DA right after we got the first white Miata.
It's been sitting new in the box since then... I never seem to have enough time (or more importantly energy) left for silly things like appearance oriented projects.

But, as the mechanical stuff finally is getting wrapped up, it'll be time to shift gears and bring out the freshness in both of the Miatas.

My door/fender above are the worst of it. Otherwise it should be a fairly easy project.

Thanks for the info.

Fair enough. I should have elaborated and pointed out that the Bilsteins are a better shock than what he was thinking of getting, and are capable of being rebuilt.

I'm not crazy about the look of the center caps on my Panasports. Do most aftermarket wheels use the same size so I can just swap out for a different set? Mine look like these:

What part of the look do you not like? I'm pretty sure Adam (@revlimiter) can redo the centercap if you're nice/pay enough.

The large fake chrome/ plastic hex nut that sticks out. I would prefer something that sat flush.

I am unfamiliar with your particular setup but does it spin on or snap in? If it snaps take a pair of digital calipers and measure them and compare that with other caps.

Center cap size does vary between manufacturers so as Andy mentioned, knowing the size will help you expand your center cap horizons. Personally, Pana's look good without a cap at all.

And revlimiter is always the answer if you just want to change up the design/logo/et al of the cap itself.

He emailed me. He's apparently looking for 4 CAPS. Not cap inserts.

1: measure center cap. You need an overall cap diameter measurement and a clip diameter measurement. These are best taken in millimeters with a digital caliper.

2: Measure your wheel inner diameter where the center cap grabs on. That'll give you a target size. Note the difference between the cap and the wheel.

3: Take those measurements and hit ebay. Search a lot. You'll find a lot. Order the center caps that look good to you.

4: When you're ready, I'd love to make you some inserts for the caps.

Does anyone know what the mazda option accessory was that would put a storage pocket behind the driver or passenger seat to store stuff? I think it installed with the snaps that are on the deck carpeting area.

Edit: I seem to recall seeing a few last time I was on yahoo japan, but I can no longer find them.

I think this is what you're looking for. Rare. Desired. Not a Mazda OEM piece/part.
