No worries duder. I forgot that Crystal had Sunday off, and that's my only day to see her out of the week, so that's why i didn't come help you. We're even!

Did you end up getting the whole thing?

There's still a little bit left, but I'm going to sneak in and take it tonight. I have more than enough to finish my house as it is though.
That **** is not easy in case you were wondering.

Top hats are going to require a few hours of work to get them to work well. Going to have to strip the paint off then go over the existing welds with a tig, no rod in an effort to smooth them out and push through for penetration. If i'm right, this should take care of my problems AND make them much stronger.

Got a care package yesterday to help finish my interior finally.

Glove box, NA6 door pads for my custom panels, a/c delete interior things. So excite.

It's not top of my list but I asked Planet Miata when I called for something else the other day. I figured I would ask because they look new.

Ah ok. Yeah they're pretty nice on the front face. Pretty messed up on the back face but i'm not super worried about it.

I just need to figure out the easy way to cut these sheets of ABS i have.

Mid-july, no real rush. We need to have a drinking/grilling/wrenching day soon. The hardest part about the panels will be getting the tweeters to work with them.

I think i have a router, too. That might be easier?

yeah router works great, so does the small drill bit looking thing on a dremel. With either of those choices speed control is critical to avoid melting. The nibblers can sometimes leave really bent and shitty edges.

Thanks for the feedback on that Leafy. I just replaced the blades so they should be pretty sharp. I have a router with table and a dremel as well.
I should be free next weekend. Will bring beer and bratwurst.

tile knife. Score the area several times and then break it at the score. 10x less mess, no melted plastic, no jagged edges, perfect lines.

Mixed results for this weekend's wrenching.

Seats: Fail.
FrankB tanks: Mixed. Coolant overflow was cake, washer reservoir, need to revisit. Instructions are from an MSM, which had ABS. My car does not have this, oem tank in a different place, need to extend some wires. No big deal, just didn't feel like doing it on Saturday.
Miataroadster shifter: Win. After i disassembled it again after i realized i forgot to fill the transmission.

Video of shifter. This is so much win i can't hardly stand it.




Ordered today: Radiator, timing belt kit, valve cover gasket, Trackspeed EGR and coolant neck blockoffs ($10.53 shipped da fuq?), and EGR plug for header.

Gonna be a lot of work to get this thing done in time for MATG, but very doable. I remain optimistic.

The only reason I have kept my slow 01 is because of that. It is truly pleasureable to drive around with such a great shifter.
