    Well did some cleaning up of the floor pans. Before, during and after pictures. Will be putting down some dynamat, add an e-brake and some new carpet.
    Also picked up a isuzu trooper sway bar to upgrade my stock one, in process of cleaning it up and powder coating. Grabbed a miata parking brake and will be mated with lokar universal parking cables. More to come...also new intercooler coming up for LUVLEE.

    Just finished up the carpet install, not perfect at all to my liking but it's better than 40 year old carpet. Bench seat is back in, miata e brake installed (cables will be installed later). Coming later will be a new intercooler, bigger of course. Upgrading sway bar that was recently powder coated red. More upgrades to come and can't wait for spring time. carpet1.jpg carpet2.jpg carpet3.jpg intercoolers.jpg swaybar1.jpg swaybar2.jpg

    Here is an update on LUVLEE #4g63luv. Updated to a k&n filter from the spectra autozone filter. Intercooler grew a bit so needing some more fitment. Couple of pictures and before and after. Runs and drives super well. Has issue installing my trooper sway bar, might move the sway bar bushing locations to make it work; that will be later down the line. I will start throwing some videos once the weather starts cooperating and car meets not being cancelled. I hope everyone stays safe out there.

    Took this quarantine time and cleaned up the interior a bit and did some door panels. Bought these aluminum panels but did some of my touch ups with some vinyl and dailydriven bolt washers. What you guys think? And added some decals to the tank. Stay safe everyone. decals.jpg doorpanel4.jpg doorpanel3.jpg doorpanel2.jpg doorpanel1.jpg

    No major updates, fixed my door sagging issues on both doors also added new door seals. What a pain to remove the old pins, lots of hammering and drilling. Painted my side emblems and added my IG decal onto my fuel cell. IG: 4G63LUV

    Made a few updates and cruise shots. Relocated my coil pack under the evo 8 manifold with zero issues using JMF relocation bracket. Also made a cover piece wrapped in carbon to cover up my ECU and wiring. I still want to clean up the wiring in the engine bay.

    Couple of weeks ago LOL (leaks not coming from Luv)
    Happy Free Ride Friday! #readyforliftoff
    Had a minor electrical issue where #LUVLEE didn't want to start. Towed home and started right up at home LOL, keyless ignition issue got fixed. At least nothing major, she is back on the road.

    Not the lift I wanted to do on the luv today LOL. Transmission decided to come out because it only wanted to stay in 1st. Not bad to drop out of this luv with a 4g63 connected to it. It's nice to have friends in high places, thanks for letting me use the lift and a flat bed trailer.

    And yes, nice to have friends with lifts! I hope to have one in a garage with high ceilings some day.
