One of the guys from AFH argued with me that a bolt wasn't missing from my RSX-S oil pump kit. They might know a lot but their customer service needs some work... lost any future business from me over a 50 cent bolt.

Subscribed. The progress looks great, and I'll be sending customers here to view your build progress to gain more insight.

Can we got a shot from under the car showing the exhaust routing?

Next time it's on the trailer, sure. I don't have a lift...just four jackstands.

It's nothing special, though. Follows the edge of the tunnel and goes between the axle stub and lower bracing with a slight V, and then straight out the back.

I'm more curious about how it gets over to the driver's side, and how that's all routed.

I love that you have prepped so many successful cars with totally normal home mechanics tools.

You musta missed the edit I did later the first day I started this thread. There's a pic of exactly that.

Here, let me help you with that ... https://www.miataturbo.net/general-m...2/#post1204024

Speaking of...I'm going to be adding some pics and more details to a couple of those posts where it says "placeholder". For example, next time the intake is off, I'll snap some of the coolant hose routing. And I just got some more of the electrical stuff this am.

Edit: see post #58.

No. I'm worried more about getting the car fully prepped than shooting videos.

I'm sure some will turn up once the car is on track for reals.

Quite the builder, this doesn't bode well for my current driver-centric mentality. Subbed.

On the home stretch now with the cage.

Tubes all bent, tacked, then deconstructed for final welding.

Cage is done, car is home.

Next up, seat install.

Here's one with the hardtop on...no windshield, though. Waiting on Emilio...

The door bars are an interesting design choice. I guess ingress/egress is a higher priority and you won't be dealing with other cars hitting you so there is less need for protection at hip height. Also, is your wife your partner for this again? Stock seat with a 3 point belt for her that unbolts before competition?

And since the car was on the trailer, I snapped a few of the exhaust in place, per Curly's request.

Indeed, one of the major compromises we debated.

The NB OE door bars are pretty hefty so we are relying on them for on-the-road levels of intrusion protection. And since no wheel-to-wheel, the risk of on-track t-boneage is much reduced (though certainly non-zero). We did the same thing on the CRX.

Yes, Ann is transit-driving again. Current plan is OE right seat, mounted against the floor (no slider), with a foamectomy. She is short-waisted, so there is no bar clearance problem for her, but I need to be able to ride/sleep over there w/o being near the front down tube. We'll use a Shroth style belt set over there.

On the driver's side, we are going to use a Kirkey that is two sizes too big, but padded up using space shuttle foam to fill it in. This should allow it to be reasonable for long transits. Ann will get a "midget shim" additional booster pad so she can see over the door sill when in the driver's seat.

Haha I could have sworn I saw you driving on Highway 6 in College Station... Saw a RV thing towing a car with some wheels poking out underneath the car cover.

Do you tow it with a car cover on it?
