I'm sorry but I'm not getting the point of your answers. What's so wrong with the iron as a material?

Maybe it is a misunderstanding between english and greek.

Iron is way too heavy and unnecessary, we'd prefer aluminum, and eat the costs. How much does this iron plate weigh?

Steel isn't much lighter, but I would rather have something less brittle. I would rather pay more to avoid having 18-19th century skillet technology between my block and transmission. But yeah, aluminum would be ideal. I wouldn't really mind steel though, something that size couldn't weigh more than a few pounds more than aluminum. Though weight does add up. At least its low on the car though.

It's not a problem for me to use aluminum. The cut will be cnc machined, so the material is not a problem. I'll have detailed costs for the two materials soon.

This is the mount (and it is made from aluminum)

Updates?
- more details on that ppf adapter, specifically how it's mounting to the tail shaft
- pricing... and shipping to the US

And for those interested, know you're going to need a hybrid drive shaft (Miata tail, TII input) and a clutch disc solution- which means your current Miata clutch at least re-hub'd to a tII spline/diameter.

steel is best for this sort of thing IMO, stainless is a bit pricey and aluminum is a little soft.

besides, my 3/8" steel adapter plate only weighs 9 lbs.

I was hoping to mill off 1/2" from the face of the bell housing and then weld the aluminum adapter plate to the bell housing. This way i can get the shifter in the stock location.. that was the plan anyway.

He just needs to send us the CAD file. Shipping from Greece would be fail on these.
