• NSX Titanium Type-S / Zanardi Shift Knob

    Ever since I peered into the interior of an NSX many months ago and spotted one of these shift knobs installed, it stuck with me. The height, shape, and finish were spot on for what I wanted to achieve. The only problem is, my MGW short shifter is threaded for M12x1.75 shift knobs and the […]

  • S2000 Starter Push Button Install

    After I originally installed the AiM dash and reassembled the interior, I couldn’t help but feel that an opportunity was wasted in regards to the cigarette lighter. I don’t smoke and keeping around a cigarette lighter is like treasuring a vestigial relic. The hole that the lighter resides in is the perfect location to install […]

  • Pioneer AppRadio 4

    The decision to redo and overhaul my sound system was an extemporaneous one. Just like how attacking the roll bar goal seemed ripe in the moment, which consequently paved the way for the Alcantara wrapped rear trim panels. I also had no plans initially to give up my new Advans, but the RegaMasters manifested into […]

  • 18×9.5″ / 18×10.5″ +18 Desmond RegaMasters

    I found and acquired my grails. It might come as no surprise that I dearly missed my original 17×10″ RegaMasters, but 17″ wheels just didn’t cut it. In the time since, I went through 2 separate sets of Advans. But one thing was apparent, they were all just fillers. The true set of wheels I […]

  • M2 / Raceshop Roll Bar II: Installed

    It took me a full week to be able to cross the finish line with the roll bar install. I have no idea how some people can claim to perform an install in a single afternoon, there are simply too many pieces and steps to attend to. For certain, I have gained proper perspective on […]

  • M2 / Raceshop Roll Bar

    My tenured, rollercoaster history of roll bars in this car is a great showcase of persistence and a stubbornness of accepting nothing less than right. The original owner installed an Autopower roll bar and left me open holes that needed patching. I instead filled them by installing an Autopower bar of my own. Its overall […]

  • Plastics4Performance Lexan Rear Windshield

    The defroster lines on the rear glass were always distracting to me and an aesthetic element that I wanted to improve. Trying to mask them with dark window tint is not only ineffective but not preferable because I removed all of the tint on the car purposely to achieve a clear, greenhouse look. I knew […]

  • oCarbon Part II

    I’ve been waiting with bated breath for these carbon fiber pieces to finish, but it’s difficult to rush handmade, custom projects like this. oCarbon recently sent me more pictures of the progress, which I am always excited to receive. It appears that they are working on the trim in separate pieces or phases, because not […]

  • Alcantara Rear Quarter Trim & Sound Upgrades

    After removing the Miracle Cross Bar, the large, rear quarter trim panels would no longer suffice because they were modified and drilled into for fitment. The plan was to include the trim panels with the Cross Bar but that left me with a decision to make: I could either find unmodified, black panels as replacement […]

  • Ganador Super Mirrors

    With much vacillation and deliberation, I have finally arrived into the correct zeitgeist to move forward with the Ganador Super Mirrors. I only wish now I had cut to the chase sooner and skipped the initial hesitations. I came across these mirrors in abundance in the past, but never pulled the trigger. Now, when I […]

  • Nissan OEM Rain Guards

    While in the midst of RX-7 updates, this post brings to my attention how much I dislike working on the 240sx. With a limited and finite amount of free time, it’s tough to divert attention to another car when the RX-7 already requires a substantial portion of it. The prize is and always will be […]

  • oCarbon Custom Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Overlay

    The goal of everything that I’m doing during this Winter round of modifications is to pursue what I’ve always wanted, with no compromise. The RX-7 allocates a substantial amount of realistic to these plastic panels. If I want to elevate the materials game, those panels will serve as the starting point. My conclusion is that […]
