Windshield Trim

The Miata had plastic trim around the windshield, which didn't really accomplish anything and actually obscured the top quarter inch of windshield (which is significant when you're tall), so it had to go.
I started by removing a couple little ovals, which may or may not have held visors at some point.

Then I removed the rear view mirror, which was harrowing.  You just yank it off, hoping the spring loaded clip doesn't break.

I originally planned to just remove the center piece, but the side trim wasn't doing anything either.

When I finished I just popped the mirror back on.  It looks a little more industrial, but I doubt most people would notice.
