no fume extraction here. i'm using 100% argon, same tungsten as you (red and green). you can get the gas lense setup on ebay from algvtech i think is his user name. i get a lot of that stuff from him. really cheap.

That's pretty damn impressive, you'll have to get us some pictures of the car that will have the privilege to hold it.

I think that is by far THE most bad *** 1st generation RX-7 I have ever seen.

+1 on manifolds/downpipes for miatas, I'd wait in line for one if they look like that.

Wow that is one hot RX-7! Do you have more pics? Widebody + spoiler FTW!

I don't see a rollbar or cage, so I'm assuming this will be a street/autox/occasional track day car?

He does, and has. Just custom, one off stuff.

Weir (Aaron) does awesome work. Everyone local who has dealt with him, gives glowing reviews. I haven't personally been by, but I will at some point.

Do you do single pass or double pass on the EL's? Also, do you still have any 1.6L Miata or T25 flanges for sale?
