Default Mandrel Bending

I know some people have asked me about a FMIC kit for the miata, and I haven't been able to offer it due to time and whatnot.. but we have ordered a Mandrel Bender, and expect to have it ready for use by August 15th.

This means I will be able to offer fully mandrel bent exhausts, downpipes, intercooler kits, in 2, 2.5 or 3" pipe.

I still need a NA to mock on, but the end products should be quite nice.

Not sure on the brand. I'll know more soon. My boss ordered it yesterday, after the place who does our bending broke their machine and is delaying our stuff for weeks.

At least, I found directions to make your own (the expensive part is the dies)
