time to start debugging.
This car's been through a lot of changes since it rolled on to the lift as a meek, 100% stock Miata with 18 miles on the odometer.

It's not the exciting smoke show that reality TV would have you believe, it's careful, methodical work. We even have the entire nose of the car covered in tape to protect it from bugs, as it will get a clear wrap later.
