I like that red stitching on your shift boot.

Thanks. It's a leather boot for another car...which I trimmed to make work...because it was inexpensive.

I knew it was custom. There's a guy on Spyderchat who makes custom arm rests, door cards, and other trim pieces for my car... I've got all three arm rests that he makes, as well as convex side view mirrors.

There's so much cool stuff in the aftermarket that's made by enthusiasts since the advent of 3D printing at the consumer level. I've got door jamb braces that cost $40. If you want the TRD equivalent you can fork over $250 for something you can't even see unless the door is wide open and you bend over to look for it.

Yeah. I kind of want inner fender braces but don't really want to disassemble the entire front end of my car. They say once you've done it a few times, it isn't bad. Last time I did something like that, it never lined up the same.

It feels pretty solid now, but the people in the know, say the difference is pretty noticeable.

Other than a turbo, that's all I need

I found out that the CRZ engine underbody panel fits this car with minor modification. It's supposed to be good for a 1mpg mileage increase. I like the idea.

I've been keeping the fan on low and cycling thr AC as needed. That has saved one to two mpg.

I've also slowed down on the highway some. That has saved a couple MPG as well.

I'm also continually amused and sometimes appalled at the behavior of some that apparently can't stand being passed by a tiny car. Just yesterday a guy nearly wrecked trying to get away from me in the previous generation Mustang GT. That extra three hundred fifty horsepower means nothing on a curvy road or in traffic.

"I'm also continually amused and sometimes appalled at the behavior of some that apparently can't stand being passed by a tiny car."

I'm getting the same feeling with my PC800. It now has about enough acceleration to surprise, but not shock someone. I keep wanting to find ways to make it a real "sleeper". even keeping the exhaust note quiet. Can't risk screwing up the condition of this bike though, it's super clean original.

Maybe I'll just pour a can of NOS in the gas tank...

My buddy's K20 swapped Spyder was on the lift today when I went to get the oil changed in the family truckster.

Rod knock in #4, time for a new engine. So, he's going for a K24 swap, get a little more torque out of it... but the block is another couple of inches taller, so there will be some cutting going on.
