Got the under side painted satin black and the dif,ppf,a arms all put on. Just need to find the bolts I'm missing for the hubs and put the axels on. I cleaned the ppf with a drill/wire wheel and it looks like chrome...lol. Wish I had pics but the camera was stolen this weekend.

Did you add grease fittings for those bushings?

I like that undercoat removal, wish they didn't have salted roads here.

Cell phone pics FTL, got the camera stolen at the IFO event. I have the rear almost done, just need to add the bracing and hopefully put on some reman calipers.



Hit the rotors with high temp paint then had them turned.



Extra parts waiting to go on.



Current cluster f*ck of a garage...

I had the weights machined off the flywheel to drop a lb or 2. I had heard of spec miata guys cheating this way and figured since its legal for what I'm doing I'd give it a shot. I'll try to weigh it before I put it on.

I did that! Have no idea what it weighed once done though, I think 14lbs, not bad for free. When I had it balanced they had to grind the pp, as they usually drill holes in the weight ring, as you can see in your picture.

I changed my mind on the flywheel, because I didn't want to open her back up in 3 months for a chromoly one. I ordered a gripforce F1 9.8lbs flywheel for $186 and a pair of ISC 1.5 top hats for the rear. I'll get pics when they come in. I'm going to try to get the front a arms taken off and put the new poly in tonight and maybe pull the headlights and motors.

After ordering the ISC hats for the rear, I ran into a problem using nb bilsteins on na hats in the front. I had Pauls Fab waterjet out some similar front pieces to get more travel out of the front shocks. I just need to get them welded up.

Nice ^^^

I almost did that over the summer, but ended up buying some shock that came with NB mounts.

I've got a CAD drawing for it if anybody ever wants.

Dude, someone ransacked your garage while you were busy working on your car!

Looks good. Planning on telling us what it weighs when it's track ready?
