    What did you do with your Miata today?

    I know Centric has been very involved with Miatas, so I had hope it would be good. $84 and it included the stake nut.

    BTW, thatís a Centric caliper in the last picture. I bought a couple for my NA and was really happy with them. Thatís the finish they come with.

    Great deal! I had to buy the nut seperately from GM for $12 since it is torque to yeild. And no stake, only 200-series, red Loctite and crossed fingers.

    Ugh, red? How many ugga-duggas on the impact wrench does that take to remove?

    It’s tough stuff but my “Big Bertha” wrench made short work of it.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    OK I'm tired of hearing the crickets chirping on this forum so I guess I will add some MX5 related content.

    Back when I bought and installed my Boss Frog Double Hoop Roll Bar, the "B" Pillar trim had cut outs for the old style bar. (BTW, if anybody wants it just let me know. It fits NA's & NB's). I hated the look of that so I got some replacement trim from "The Parts Group". Well with the cool weather and relatively not much to do, I replaced them today.

    Here are the replacement pieces. They are like new where my original pieces are old, stained, and dirty. You can see the difference between the two.

    Had to strip and flatten the old ones to get it to lie flat inside the new piece to use it as a template. Used a Dremel to cut the ridges and do the rough cuts.

    Here is the finished product looking factory fresh and new. Compare it to the old one on the other side.

    These new pieces must be from a newer NB because of subtle differences. The little clip on the large B pillar trim piece is not compatible. The new piece has an additional metal clip to hold it in place and the old one won't work. Kept the old ones if anyone with a 99-00 with a tan interior needs one.

    Was going to fix the passenger side ball vents today, but I just chilled today.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    Rotated my tires today and was way over due. Had not rotated them since I got then earlier this year and on the rears the thread is half gone. The car was driven hard this year and I don't do car abusing tire burn outs especially on expensive tires. My Yokohama AD08R's stuck like glue and it looks like they are still available once I wear these out.

    I have the 949 Racing 6UL'S on my car and ordered them with theft resistant lug nuts. I figured I would order a spare set of four and an extra adapter tool. Did not find them on the 949 Racing site so I will call them tomorrow to see whats the deal. Hope they did not discontinue them.

    Had a look at my brake pads and not like I already knew, they are due for replacement. Will be going with Hawk HPS again. They were great! No brake dust and they did not eat my rotors. They never faded after a day of hard braking on my Miatas in Boone trip. Will order them right after Christmas.

    Will make an attempt to fix the floppy passenger side ball vents this week after Christmas.
