Forgot I had sent the front subframe to the powder coaters after being sick of painting and grinding

Headlight housings



Control arms



Main subframe. My god powder coating turns out amazing.



It looks chrome but I took these with my cellphone so not the best pictures. Nice gloss black.

You're going to track this car ?!?

I'm going to cry the first time you spin it off track.

I'm going to slap the person who referred me to Revlimiter's site....

Barcode NA gauge set-US spec, white lighting



Barcode HVAC panel-white



Center indicator panel



NA6 Retro hazard switch-black anodized, red label



Merry Xmas to myself. After baking 600+ loaves of bread a day for the past 10 days I deserve this.

Those gauges look so nice. I kinda wish I didn't like my stock ones so much so I would have more motivation to upgrade.

No just credit where due and don't want to affect his site. Stealing bandwidth is generally frowned upon I thought...

Well the more you know! The Brain knows much more than I, very much admittedly so.

I just like the clean simplicity of these. I didn't like how they were inverted and they seemed "busy".

Don't forget that you can always contact Adam and have him make custom changes if there's something you want to tweak. I have one of the first sets of custom gauges and I still haven't gotten around to installing them. :(


My gauges, test fit and installed in Rev's spare cluster about 2 years ago.

HA! I have all the bandwidth in the universe on my server. Steal away!!!

But dude, this build is incredible. (Jeff linked me when he placed an order.) I just finished. I can't believe how much you accomplished since October.

Considering I received my gauges in 2011 and they are still in the original (though opened) packaging, I am filled with shame in comparison.

We all have our own speed and life commitments which hold us back. Don't compare to my speed. I'm single(technically not but in reality it seems so), a business owner, 26 of age, and no life besides work. I have the free time to go this speed.

Revlimiter reminds me why I love the Miata community so much. Very helpful and go out of their way to take care of you. Much different than the VW world where you constantly feel like you are getting taken advantage of(some people/vendors withstanding).

USPS decided they couldn't ship the bolts to the platers so I had to reship them today via UPS. Another waiting game, but not a big deal. I'm so burned out from my holiday business traffic that glad to take a break.

Decided to fill all the seams for holes in the truck bed coating/general places that paint didn't fill up. Used a high temp sealant on the transmission tunnel area, and a waterproof/weatherproof/metal specific sealant on the other areas.

Waiting for it to cure before I scrape off all the extra sealant.








Sealed up the roll bar mounts



Thin schmear of sealant over the edges of the reflective tape so no moisture can get under it.



Completely sealed the frame rails from getting water into them. I'd rather not deal with any moisture collecting and potentially rusting.
