That sounds like fun, I would love to do this for a living. Perhaps I ca work towards a transition that way. Not now though.

Anyone know if control arms are significantly different for ABS/Non-abs cars? I'm about to buy the control arms and subframe off Midtenn's '00 which I'm sure doesn't have ABS and I plan to put them on my MSM.

Might just have 2 running and driving miatas here in a minute.

Might wanna wait until tomorrow, there's some plastic bits you could use for the 10ae that I'm sure he'd throw in for cheap.

And when I get home to my laptop I'm most likely changing this thread title to "rebuild all the salvage Miatas!" Or something like that.

hahahahahaha

Thanks for the chuckle gents, props given.

This one would be for JC specifically. It's a '99 black that runs and drives but has some minor front end damage and "undercarriage", around 130k miles. Should go pretty cheap. Should be easy for him to get back on the road and finally be driving a Miata.

Did you have to set the backlash and all that? I'm going to be playing with this tonight... I picked up the diff carrier already.
