thanks man! i love the hood props, it makes you commit right away cause you have to drill holes and then tap the holes into the hinges for the hood, but its a pretty easy install.
the LED's were a pretty easy thing to make, a little bit of back and forth to get them how i wanted, but im very happy with the result. Ive been thinking about making a handful of sets to sell but just havent gotten around to it yet. Maybe this summer.

so i am not very pleased with how low the "LOW" TDR seat rail is. if you look in the pic up a few back, you can see it bends up, its honestly no lower than my current foamectomied stock seat. So i taking the seat rail to a buddy who's going to help me modify the rail to get me lower (heat up the metal and beat the bend out of it to just bolt on and go straight back, or drop down).

i also am buying a new-to-me 6 speed and MiataRoadster short shifter to replace the "i have no clue how its never broken" 5 speed that was put into the car from the previous owner. seriously that 5 speed is a magical unicorn transmission, its from an early 90s, has around 250k on it, spent most of the last 80k on two boosted miatae, and neither of those drivers are easy on cars hahaha. will be nice to have the 6 speed back in the car.

I have that same seat but opted to make my own rails.  Surprisingly comfortable.

i saw those, i need to have the seat as low and as far back as i can... Im actually thinking of modifying the Track Dog Racing Seat to get me even lower and further back than i am with the test fit.

I thought the rail from track dog was too flat and needed to be higher in the front to make it comfortable.  A friend welded brackets directly to his spec Miata seat to get it as low as possible.  Only problem is that most cannot weld aluminum.

Im 6'1"and 250lbs (long torso and tree trunk legs).... i need/want every inch of room i can get. As it currently sits with the TDR Low rail, its no lower than my foamectomy stock seat was... Ill figure something out for the seat bracket up and then likely have to get the BFH out and massage the tunnel on the drivers side to get the seating position i want.

it is. if you order it from Track Dog Racing, you get their cover instead of the ultashield cover.

I don't see any reason why they would not work.  I have one of the track dog seats but a different rail set for it.  The stock seat lowering rails don't have as much tilt as my racing seat rails.  The track dog seat has a 10 degree back angle.
