Put the grinding, welding and general "im throwing showers of sparks or chips in every direction" operations with a bench or whatever in a single corner. Get 2, or 3 shower curtains, make or buy cheap curtain rods, or run a clothes line from opposing walls a few inches below the ceiling in such a way to form a perimeter around the work area. Hang the curtains, pull them out when you do said filthy tasks, push them up against the wall when your not.

You will thank me later

<p>Thats an awesome idea.</p><p>I'm pretty excited. The whole house has a &quot;nice but used&quot; sort of wear on it.

<p>I'm also going to get a plasma cutter once track season dies down. I hate getting out the grinder.</p>

This is a good thing! at least in my opinion. Gives you a chance to seal everything up, insulate, or insulate more/better, run new wiring. Take pics of all the frame work and wiring runs if you ever decide to drywall anything up.

Why need 1.8 calipers? You only need the 1.8 brackets.

I'm trying to hit a "spirited driving event" oct 10th, I think I'll leave the egay pads on the 1.8 rear rotors and do a prop valve/sport brakes later.



This the highest class, for $30 I say it seems fun.

Yeahhh. Bit different than Laguna seca
<br />
<br />I guess I just need brackets. But my calipers feel gross and I feel like they are ready to be replaced.
<br />
<br />G. Did you send me rear 1.8 brackets too?

Add surface mount soldering to the list of things to not do while on aderall. A steady hand is really necessary.

I use a heatgun for stuff like that, tin the pads, get parts close, pound with hot air while poking **** into place. Little pinpoint flux things help lots. I try not to do heat sensitive stuff...

I can't do that with an iron, too many hands required.

It was real easy with the microscope.
<br />Tin pads. Tweezers in left hand, iron in right, no problem.
<br />Here is it working!

So I found something else

2009+ mini cooper JCW models have 280mm rear rotors. They seem to be available cheaper than miata sport rotors. Making them fit might be as easy as changing the offset of the rear bracket ~10mm. If we are already making centering rings...

Half pound, too. Gram strat!


Miata sport rotor


2009 Mini JCW rotor



Duralast/Brake Rotor - Rear 31378 at AutoZone.com

Miata rear $40

Duralast/Brake Rotor - Rear 73017 at AutoZone.com

Mini rear $24

I might grab a set to check and see if they're too deep or anything.

I never looked at Mini rear rotors. Interesting. 1/2 price rotors could make it worth it.


You asked previously about rear bracket offset. The caliper and rotor remains in the same plane for the 1.6-1.8-sport brakes so no offset is needed. Just fabricate the bracket to so that the one side mounting holes are milled 1/2" of the plate thickness deep. M-tuned used 1" plate and I was going to use the same thickness. Can't really fit more than that. Look at M-tuned bracket pics and it will make sense.


As far as wheel clearance. I ran real tight clearances to my 15" NB wheels (only 1/8") and did not have issues. It does look pretty tight though.

Savington said 1/8 is fine in his experience.

Let Martin drive the car and ask him if he likes whatever you put together.
