That car looks GREAT inside. I love that tan leather interior but every Miata I've ever seen looks so dingy because it's always cracked and super nasty (same with the wood pieces on the steering wheel and shifter). I love how clean yours is, and now I understand why they sold it like that new.

Classy.

Thanks man! I love it too! I know what you mean...every other tan leather seat I've seen was all torn up. However, my passenger seat has started to come apart at the seam though. Can't tell unless you push on it.

We can discuss this... my brother and I were talking about it and then after building it, we understood why people charge so much for one! PM me if you're seriously interested.

Also...a friend just pointed out to me that the compressor housing looks like a face.

I got a FM master cylinder brace, which was on backorder for about a month



Installed

I've never heard of such a thing. Interesting. Firmer brake pedal feel or something?

Pretty much it stops the master cylinder from causing the firewall to deflect when you press on the pedal hard so that you get a much more positive brake response and "feel".

Takes the mush out of the pedal.

This. It is probably only noticeable when doing some hard braking. I also installed carbotech brake pads and braking feels WAY better than before.

Yes, I put in carbotech pads, SS lines, and fresh fluid and got a MASSIVE improvement in braking. I was hoping you bought for a performance reason.

I've been working on a custom, washer fluid reservoir. I based the dims (roughly) off of the one that BEGi sells...which is tiny. But I don't mind because I don't need that much washer fluid anyway!

I cut this out of a 12"x12" sheet of aluminum. In hindsight, it might have been easier to use an extruded rectangle piece but whatever. Bending that metal...





Drilling the hole for the pump



Test fitting



After alumiwelding all the cracks, I shaved down all the excess globs with a file. I know... it looks like a mess



JB welded to make sure there were no holes and to smooth it out a bit. I've decided that I'll paint it black.



Here it is in its current state: sanded everything and riveted brackets on both sides and put JB weld around the rivets so that it seals. No pics of it on the car yet, but it is going in the drainage area in front of the windshield. It fits fine.







I'll start painting tomorrow.

Washer fluid reservoir done. Now I just need to complete the wiring for it.

Nice.

If I didn't work down the street from a very competent/affordable welder, I would give aluminum brazing a shot.

How tedious is it? The videos I've watched make it look a bit sloppy, however, no one even bothers clamping their parts so I suspect their standards/work habits are quite low.

It's kind of a sloppy method, as you can tell. When heating up lower grade aluminum with the torch, it can warp or even melt the piece you're working with. If the conditions are cold, it takes a while to heat up the surface area to the right temp for the alumiweld to stick. Most of all, you can't count on the seams being water tight - tiny holes come up, no matter how careful you are so that is why I used JB weld on top of it.

Also, when you want to heat it up again and add more material, there's risk of melting what you've already done. So, if I had a competent/affordable welder close by, I would rather save myself the trouble and go that route

For simple projects that are more covered up (such as my license plate bracket), I don't mind doing this.

For tanks I like to just dump some POR-15 in and swirl it around ... usual fills the pin holes.

Here's mine. 225s for Red, 205s for Silver. A lot of meat on those 225s:
