<p>Just went and looked at a new house to hopefully move into.</p><p>Garage is the ****. Its basically a 4 miata garage </p><p>588 sq/ft with 2 doors. Hopefully will have 2 bays for working on ****, corner for welding, corner for storage and some room for a couch/tv area</p>
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.
<p>Thats an awesome idea.</p><p>I'm pretty excited. The whole house has a "nice but used" sort of wear on it. Its not the prettiest thing, but it wont suck if we scratch a wall or something. Reminds me of my cars </p><p>Garage is unfinished, which means I pretty much have free reign for shelves and whatnot.</p><p>Getting ahead of myself, we need to be approved first.</p>
<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.

<p>Oh, this is a rental <img alt="" src="http://www.miataturbo.net/images/smilies/smile.gif" title="" /> But in budget, bigger than expected, and allows pets.</p><p>Oh and i've been wanting a shitty house. I break stuff to often to get a nice house.</p>
<p>Calipers ordered.</p><p>Still not sure if I'm going to try and get this done before my track day at ORP.</p><p>Would also need</p><p>DTC-60 front+rear=??</p><p>Miata 1.8 rear calipers=$150</p><p>Rotors=$80+</p><p>Calipers=$250</p><p>**** adds up.</p><p>Not sure yet.</p>
Yeahhh. Bit different than Laguna seca
<br />I guess I just need brackets. But my calipers feel gross and I feel like they are ready to be replaced.
<br />G. Did you send me rear 1.8 brackets too?
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...
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.
<p>Calipers have been ordered.</p><p>Need to see if I have 1.8 rear brackets. If I do then I might try and make this work for the next track day.</p><p>Also need people to fill up my group buy. So I can get them going.</p>
