NOTHING. The car sits under its cover in my garage, next to the DD 2018 Honda Civic Touring, plugged into its trickle charger, until there is no more snow and salt on the roads. I did remember to notify my insurance company, and just got a new statement showing a much reduced charge.

Living in the cloudy Northeast, and owning a 2008 Miata PRHT. The runs made this summer saw a lot of rain. And bring 77 years old, I decided to install a back you camera in my Miata. Top up, and age keeps one from turning you head as far as when you started driving. Then you were looking at the girls in the back seat.Getting back to the backup camera. I chose a Auto-Vov M1W ( W for wireless). Cost, under $100, install, easy, about one hour. That is getting everything ready, tools etc, and reading the nice easy install instructions.Tapped into the red right backup light wire, grounded to a hole near that wire. I scraped the paint from around the hole, and ran a bolt with the ground wire attached to it.Camera installed behind the licence plate, ran the camera wire up to the rubber gasket, cut it near the trunk lock and put electric tape back over the cut. Ran the wire from the camera to the wireless transmitter, and placed it in the jack compartment.Did not attach it as yet. Waiting for Spring to be sure wherever I attach the transmitter were I am getting a strong signal. I plug it 4.3 inch LCD Monitor in with the car charge plug (which has a extra UBS port for my Dash Camera.) And started the car, put in reverse, and saw my whole driveway. I think it will really be a big help when I have the top up, and need to back up. You can't stop getting older, but this will make driving a lot safer.

In the process of giving "Miss Mia", my 92 Ebay rescue Miata a full service. I found the engine drain plug rounded over, so I had to sacrifice a box wrench by welding it to the plug, cracking it loose and then cutting the end off the wrench! Hey what ever it takes...

Trying to find a gasoline leak. After driving, when I stop, I have a strong gasoline smell in the cabin. So far, I haven't found any. Checked the Fill tube & the rubber fill hose that goes into the tank. And the Air tube that accompanys it. Took the cover off the top of the tank behind the seats. Found nothing. Looked good. Parked the car on a tarp so I can look & see if there's anything leaking. So far no. After I run some gasoline through it, I'll check it while I fill the gas tank. If anyone has any advice or experience regarding this problem feel free to share it with me.
