    Okay, if you aren't yanking my chain, then you are WAY out of it! Got a 2000 SE w/JR supercharger about two weeks ago (and spent the last week out of country so have only been able to drive it one week).

    Pictures are here, post 10792:

    As long as there's no stop lights, rain's no big deal when topless

    Drove the Speed today, first time since getting home. After the Miata it almost feels like a Buick! Even though it isn't a boat, it floats over imperfections like they aren't there. When I got home I installed the cargo net in the Miata and vacuumed around the rain rail. Also got under and found out I do have braided stainless brake lines. Now I just have to bleed them (later this week along with all my fluids to be changed).

    And just for all the whiners, I took a picture of the 8 with her now finished exterior mods. Posting will occur when I get up and get my cable to download. Will I post here, in the modding the wife's car thread, your Mazda pics thread, or the 22V thread? I'll let you all guess where!

    Today was a Miata day. Changed fluids (oil, trans and diff). Flushed/bled the brakes, first time using my new pressure bleeder. It didn't quite work as advertised so I'll have to see if my procedure was off. Finally, I raised her up 13mm. While under the car I discovered what has been scraping wasn't the fender liner, but the frame rails. I had to run out on some errands so didn't get any definitive measurements hub to fender, but it looks like I actually gained close to an inch in that plane (25mm for those so inclined). Not sure why the difference between the shock amount and that, I could see it if the car had a setup similar to a motorcycle (where you get a greater increase at the wheel from shock adjustment) but I don't see that being the case here. Maybe Maff can chime in and clear the haze.

    Oh yeah, and whoever changed the oil last time barely put the filter on. Glad I took care of that before it blew off. Location kind of sucks, it isn't the worst I've ever changed but it is awkward.
