    Miata: I've been ailing so haven't gotten anything done lately. Now that I am finally recovering, I took the plunge and bought a Momo Fighter steering wheel along with a MS hub to mount it on. Hoping by the time it shows up I will be fully fit and can get on with work.

    Miata: Steering wheel and hub showed up today:



    The wood is slightly lighter than the stock parts, but I don't think it will be too bad since the wheel is a distance away from the shift knob and e-brake handle. My resistors showed up too, so once it warms some more I will be able to get this installed.

    I thought I had bought a new horn trim ring from eBay, but the seller wrote me the following day to say their inventory was wrong and they had none left. They also checked with Momo but it is NLA. I'll have to find another source if I want one.

    Miata: Spent a little more money. Bought a trim ring off eBay for the wheel, a horn button from revlimiter and some screws for the wheel as is (got these from Ace Hardware). For Internet info, the screw size is M5 X 0.8 X 12mm. Note this is what fits the Mazdaspeed hub I have. I do not have the horn ring yet but it shouldn't be too thick so the 12mm length should do the trick. I will have to buy some different screws for the trim ring once it is in hand, I'll post their length once I have all the pieces in hand.

    CX-5: changed oil/filter and rotated tires.

    Miata: Yesterday I removed the stock steering wheel and tried mocking up the MS hub. It's going to take some modification to get it to clear the clockspring, and to have the Momo wheel mount up in the correct orientation. No free lunch in this case.

    Warmer today and I'm feeling better so it was out to the garage. Had some work to do on other vehicles first, then it was on to Minnie. Pulled the charge pipes, drained coolant and pulled the radiator. With all the other work I did that was all my back could take for today (pulled muscles from coughing for two weeks). Since I have my other chores done now I can hit it hard tomorrow.
