As I said... I'd be slow with updates... BUT I got stuff done today.

Reorganized the garage completely, cleaned it, put up some more cabinets and hung 3 new ceiling lights. Then got the car into working position for the all corners projects.

Got old suspension off (received my revalved Bilsteins from Stewart Development on Friady... WOOT)
Got one corner done with new calipers/brackets/pads/SS lines.






Still to do.... Tons... first in line though is finish new SS lines install and brake system refresh.

So 2 more corners of brakes are done. Rear hard line from splitter junction to LR brake line was toast... so I have new hardline coming in Friday. In that order is all the bushings/nuts/etc I need to put the suspension together and reinstall.

I'll be trying to work on flares/oil temp gauge and other random stuff until the parts for those projects arrive.

Also have last flange for downpipe build enroute. Going to keep the stock dual flapper internal WG from the Evo8 turbo and do a divorced dump setup, recirculating into the downpipe downstream.

Slowly makin progress!

Its more of an extra force required to get it over into position on the far right. But thats what I remember pushing it around without car running yet... and no fluid

I used to have a shift **** just like that (minus the 6th gear).. .I took it off after I got a nice round burn mark with a shift pattern on my palm one hot day.

My last track car had a similar ****. I liked it ALOT. Weighted ***** ftw.

I never go top down in the car... I removed it when I bought the car. So no worries of direct sun heat on it.... EVER.

The miata being a convertible was the main downside for me

I picked up the suspension bushings and crap to put my suspension together. Hoping my brake line comes in before I have to go home today. So i can bang out the suspension/brakes tonight/tomorrow.

I'll update as i go

Made good progress today. Got some morning gardening done before the rain came.
Then spent day doing some grilling and bunch of car work.

Got IM on and mostly hooked up. Few vacuum lines and intake side of setup is all back together.

All rivnuts are drilled and installed for flares. One side mounted for fun, still need paint.
Also put my somewhat abused 11" rotors back on front and the stock pads with them. Figured may as well get the brackets installed and swap rotors later... even though the big brake upgrade up front requires an annoying combination of loosening almost every bolt to remove bracket and get rotor off.


OHHHH and doing rivnuts without any tool is EASY. Requires one bolt that fits the rivnut. One washer with some grease on the side of the bolt head and a NUT that is LARGER than the bolt (its basically a guide/spacer).




Cutting through bumper and backing plastic burns the eyes!!! UGH. No ventilation ftl.

Also added two more braces onto the intake manifold.

If it breaks again... Someone can buy it for cheap
