A fresh California plate now graces the (scratched and crazed and to be eventually repainted) rear fill panel.
And, to better interface with the car, a Flyin' Miata pedal kit was installed.
My driving shoes of choice Converse All-Star slip-ons, but they're just a tad bit too narrow, making it difficult to rev match when downshifting. And if the soles are wet (granted it doesn't happen all that often in San Diego County), they're a bit slippery. All better now - these bolted-on CNC aluminum plates have definitely improved traction, and having the extender on the accelerator pedal makes me wonder how anyone can really drive a Miata without one.
