    Fantastic job. I think you will really like the clams. I am familiar with the supplier in CA. I think he passed away a year or ago and his wife is running the company now. The trim job was a good idea. I like the way they do business...pay after you get the parts if you are happy with the product. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Jack. I like having them so far. It's kinda like going from briefs to boxers.

    LOL, as a clam fan, I got a kick out of your reply. You have to be in a special orbit to get it.

    I think the stripes added a few horses...

    My Storker has undergone several changes over the past few months.

    By far, my biggest project was adding power brakes. Pressure comes from a Miata brake booster flipped around. All of the other connectors are straight forward aside from a lever from the brake pedal to the booster.

    My second big project was adding a Meziere electric water pump and Radium Engineering coolant expansion tank.

    I also replaced the interior aluminum panels with carbon fiber veneer. This was mostly cosmetic, but reduced the car's weight by a couple of pounds.

    Here is a pic of the new water pump and hood louvers. Both really help keep operating temperatures consistent under the bonnet. The header wrap turned out nicely.
