Lots of improvements (Bonnie's home spa)

I had a list of things I wanted to do on my car today, and accomplished most of them:
  • Replace wimpy stock horn with more powerful aftermarket horns;
  • replace cracked old leatherette shift boot with the new leather one;
  • attach shiny pretty aluminum "racing" pedal covers;
  • finally fix the aftermarket chrome fuel lid so it latches in.

Out of this list, I accomplished all but one item: the pedal covers. They turned out to be way too big for my Miata's pedals, so I'll have to see about returning them.

Now, here are the obligatory before and after shots:

Exhibit A. Old wimpy horn and old shift boot--you'll have to agree it was high time to upgrade both.

Exhibit B. New shift boot installed. Now what an improvement!

Exhibit C. That shiny thing peeking through the radiator cowl is the new horn. You have to take my word for it.

Exhibit D. New tires. Oh yeah, forgot to tell ya, Bonnie got new Kumho Ecsta AST shoes on Friday. It's hard to believe how quiet the ride has become.

So all in all, it was a successful Saturday morning.
