It sadly sat under a tarp here for three years before I decided to get it going again recently. With no AC I'm afraid it will be a seasonal toy.
I'm not going for a restoration as much as a reformation.
As such: Added a Bosch alternator with solid state voltage regulator, radiator fan, Miata seats, LED dash lights, relocated gauges (tach and speedo switched as well at temp and fuel), turn indicator moved to center where hazard switch was. Thinking of a full redo of the dash along the lines of the old Jaguar XKE with a bank above of gauges and a row of toggles below. I'd relocate the cable controls for the heater to vertical ones.
Considered changing the color to British Racing Green and doing a custom leather interior. The main obstacle to that is the blue playing peakaboo somewhere will be obvious. Besides, the blue stands out in traffic.
