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
