Haha... That's awesome.

Pretty excited about something mostly unrelated to Miatas.



FINALLY the demo I've really wanted. Well, almost... it's an S Touring not an S Grand Touring (fake leather and no swivelly headlights) but I can't complain.

Today my job is good.

I heart it. I liked the CX-5 but always wanted a 3. There's a good chance I'd rather have this for a demo than a new (NC) Miata.

When the ND comes out all bets are off. That car is going to be awesomesauce.

Agreed. I've got a leaky master that is on the list for replacement and i'm looking for a booster upgrade for my 90.

What's up Ben, was great to meet you tonight. Always great to find another Miata enthusiast in the area. Would love to check out your build sometime! I'll have to revisit your build thread, I know I've read it before but don't recall all the details.

I will be chopping the car this Sunday morning if you'd like to swing by. Will be out there from around 9 AM til probably 2 or 2:30 PM, potentially a bit later. Shoot me a PM if you think you'll come by and I'll give you my address. Or you can text me, since you have my cell phone number.

As early as I can get my tired *** out of bed. Hopefully around 8. I had hoped to have all day to work on it but of course that's not going to happen.

Awesome if you can make it, but if not no stress. I'll buy some kind of food for whoever comes, but I only have one sawzall. This really shouldn't take long at all.

.... famous last words....

Alright gents and gents, the photos you've all been waiting for....

I got out there in the morning and finished pulling the brake lines and fuel lines out of the car, and pulled the windshield wipers and plastic surround stuff. Did some garage organizing and Aidan showed up almost exactly after I started trying to cut the windshield header off to salvage the windshield (completely ignoring Curly's advice).

How things looked before I got started:


Aidan working on the other front side...


Ben (Yank) showed up maybe 15 minutes later with his own sawzall. Gave him a blade and he started on the back end.


Things progressed quickly from there.



We decided to try to remove the windshield, Ben suggested just using a razor blade to separate it.


Yes I did some work too...


It took us about 30 minutes or so but we got the windshield out. Now I'll have a spare, plus no glass mess to clean up which would have taken most of that 30 minutes anyway. Win-win.

Pulled the pieces out and fit the front half in the pickup along with the previous bits (front fender, other body pieces and stuffs and bent control arms and such). Swept up the floor and pushed the 10AE inside.


We pulled the head off the motor as well and it looks fine inside, no evident of HG issues like I had frankly hoped to find. Ben said he'd be tempted to just run it as-is, but I know something wasn't right so I'm going to get the motor to Josh for another opinion. I'll pull it apart and get some photos later, I should have taken some but failed on that front.

All tucked in for the night:


Also, for those curious... the plug in sawzalls have way more ***** than the battery powered ones, ha. Same blades in both saws, and the corded one had been through more material.


That's all for today! Now I need to decide what to do next. I received my other taillight with pigtails so I've got that sorted. Now I have my Mazdaspeed headlights but an NB1 front bumper.

I'm feeling an NB2 front bumper coming on... Going to paint the whole shell, so why not??

Very nice Ed! Now that poor 10ae can dry off and await it's raping.

Your primary job for the next 1-20 year is to organize that garage for the 10ae build. And sell sell sell. Which goes along with organizing cause it gets rid of stuff.

5 Steps for organizing:

1. Sorting: Identify waste from keepable stuff, in your case I'd sort into waste, metal recycling, parts to sell, parts to keep.
2. Systematic Arrangement (organizing)*: Now that you have piles of sorted stuff, deal with it. Trash the waste, recycle the metal, and use those awesome shelves to organize the sellable and keepable stuff.
3. Shine: This is when you actually sweep, use paper towels and simple green to clean up oil stains, etc.
4. Standardize: This goes along with step #5, but identify issues with keeping your space clean. Is your fire wood spreading debris everywhere? Make a storage box out of 2x4 and plywood for it. Label tool drawers, make a spot for all cleaning supplies. The list goes on.
5. Sustain: THE hardest step of all. Make a plan like: last half hour before dead line is spent putting **** away, or: if can't find tool for 10 minutes, clean. That sorta thing. Some mornings when I have an hour free it's just spent cleaning, and doing a quick run through of steps 1-4, I often find stuff I can trash or recycle that's just taking up room.

*translated from Japanese, that steps a little wordy to keep it as an S.

Not sure why I typed all that out. But have fun, the hard parts over!

It's kind of sad watching an MSM being cut up.
