Very nice! I've never really thought about doing a painted dash, but that does look sharp. With Miata power, is it safe to assume Miata based suspension/brakes? Is the rear wheel centerline moved back for functional/packaging reasons, like reusing the stock rear subframe if IRS or longer trailing arms if live axle, or is it just an aesthetic thing?

Thanks for the compliment on the dash-here is a closer picture of it. The driveline ,brakes and suspension is all Miata including the complete rear subframe with IRS. Rich
