SIT­TING PRETTY

Total MX-5 - - OUR CARS -

There’s not much to re­port since last is­sue: we moved house two months ago and now the MX-5 has its own park­ing area, keep­ing my Subaru Forester and the wife’s Fiat 500 com­pany. Most of my spare time has gone on dec­o­rat­ing the new place, so the MX-5 has been some­what ne­glected.

A new Sparco seat ar­rived, though, along with some Jass Per­for­mance mounts de­signed to bolt the seat straight onto the stan­dard run­ners. Un­for­tu­nately the seat was still too high (I’m 6’2” and it gets a bit noisy up there), so I bought a pair of GSM JB ad­justable mounts that have not only low­ered the seat but tilted it back to a more com­fort­able an­gle.

More to come next time, by which time I’m hop­ing to have made some more progress with the car.

Oh I do love to be above the sea­side
