Changed my spark plugs hopefully that will let me pass inspection and I noticed 5th and 6th plugs looked worn down a little more than the rest and the galley for those two had oil in them. I ran these copper plugs longer than I should have though I thought you change them every 20k miles it's apparently 8-10k miles. I seriously need to clean my engine bay but first stop my oil leak from the bottom of the motor.

I completed the foglight rewire using Dylan Wiggins' pictorial as a guide. The only change to his method was to use an Add-A-Fuse instead of an inline fuse holder and butt connectors instead of wire caps--both neater and safer. The only problem I had was getting my head, shoulders, hands, tools and enough light all together down in the driver's foot well. I'm 6'1" and it was a struggle! Everything works as advertised including maintaining the integrity of the auto-off feature.

Nice! I did this 2 days ago! Haven't got to test it as its under the knife at the moment. I soldered and heatshrinked the connections instead of caps. Nice to hear the auto-off will work I didn't know that.

Glad to hear you're happy with the new system. That single tip you chose still looks good.

What kind of camera do you use for your pictures? They all come out looking really good. I hate my Cannon so I never use it and only use my phone...
Thanks! I use a Canon 50D w/Tamron 17-50mm lens, but the photo with the new muffler was taken with an iphone lol

Today I took the targo off for the first time in a long time. It was a nice day so the fiancee' and I went out for some shopping. Ran into this really, and I mean really nice non-turbo Mk4. Wish I had gotten more pics of it. The car was everything I wanted in a Mk4 -unabused, all stock except for the wheels. I would love to own a non-turbo for a daily. That way I can finally 1J my mk3 :evil2:

I took the targa off recently as well and I just love it the only thing I don't like is the chassis flex because you feel your hands moving and vibrating differently than your seat lol.

Drove mine to the end of the road and took a couple pics in the rain. Man it feels good to drive it! Especially with an open downpipe and a loud ass holset turbo spool

Thanks! Just got it running not too long ago. I have a build thread of my white one I just swapped most everything to this red shell.

You'll definitely see it this year in Vancouver British Columbia if you go to supra nationals!

It was nice and warm, around 48-50 yesterday after work so I tried getting the pressure P/S line out but was only able to remove banjo bolts and line brackets and it got too dark to do anything else. Hopefully to get that line replaced and drive the car some more. Also, since i swapped everything from my 91 to a 90 shell. I need to swap the M1 plug to get all the gauges to work properly, has anyone depin and repin their harness? Any tips? I just need to depin that plug on the 91 dash that I kept, do the same on the 90 then replug all the pins again. I don't really want to cut and solders the wires. Trying to keep it OEM as much as possible.

Friend of mine couldn't see my car from her Tahoe as she was backing up. Good thing the bumper and nose piece were messed up anyway.

What is it? We're all waiting.

This is why I'm always careful parking near trucks that sit so much higher like that. I had a friend driving a truck like that hit a miata parked next to him because he couldn't even see it it was so low. Are you finally gonna get the paint work you have been wanting done on the bumpers now?

Haha, well at least you are getting the work done now and it shouldn't be on your dime. Good thing you didn't just have it done, that would have been much worse...

You just made enemies with all of SM members. Prepared to be hated on.

On another note, I replaced my pressure P/S line. Can't wait to drive the car, she's been down for a like a month sicne I haven't had time to do it.
