Our cars don't make attractive noises with purely straight pipes. I prefer something with a deeper tone and a bit less raspy. Spec Miatas don't emit appealing notes either. Maybe I'm alone in this.

I am seriously demotivated right now. I think it will all come back when I pick up my NB this weekend! Or I'll completely forget about my NA project lul. Been having those horrible part out thoughts. Then I realized I have nothing on that car worth parting out except the COPs lol.

Continued on my door gutting project. My damn drill press has a worn out chuck, and the drill bit tends to wobble. Makes a triangular shaped hole. Come to think of it, the holes look like little rotary engines.....Damn it.....
