Default I got it!


I just made 685 km today with my dad to get a mint condition hardtop (for 325$, I could not believe it!) and to get my miata! Oh it sure isn't a mint one, the softop is good to replace, the respray chips by 2-3 places. But at least, it has not rust visible on the car nor under it! And has only 171 000km. For 4000$, it was by far the better deal in town! When you compare to average price is 7000$ and average km is 200 000!

So here is my Mushroom! It only needs some white spots on the top and it would be a true poison mush!

I remember that I have read somewhere here that someone has the CAD template to make the exhaust manifold flange? I'd like to have it so I could make a flange at my old welder school with the CPU'd plasma cutter.

Oh and other question. Is it normal that when I lock the driver door from behind, get out, close the door, the locker switch to unlock? I'm obligated to lock the door with the key from outside.

When you get out hold up the handle. It will prevent the locks from unlocking.

yes, the japs thought we were too stupid back in the 80's in 90's to not lock ourselves out of our cars so they made it so we had to do it purposely by holding that handle while closing it. they may have been onto something since just 2 weeks ago at the NE dyno day Artie locked himself out of his car with the hardtop on. HAHA! Stupid polock.
