Anything mechanical, just give it a good whack.

Cut and polished, waxed and measured the ride height (hasn't been touched since I bought) to find it's 11" hub to fen on the front and 12" on the rear O_o ... Soooo going to raise it to 12.25" F and 12.5" R.

It will be more comfortable and handle better if it has a little more spring travel before hitting the bumpstops, so that is a good move. You also get the benefit of camber gain as the suspension compresses.

I bought a hardtop for more money than the GDP of many a third-world country.

droped a buddy off at the LAX airport. I stopped at the gas station before i got back on the highway to head back to base and as i was filling up, a guy offered me a soda and a water cause he had to catch a flight. Then he asks me if its a 1.6 or 1.8. end up finding out the guy is from Minnesota and drives a spec miata, pretty cool.

Replaced the turn signal flasher relay.

Next time I dive under the dash, I will remove the seat first.

I cracked a rear rotor on the track at Road Atlanta at the end of the weekend.
