He probably has a large amount of people call and waste his time on the phone. Like asking about getting work done that they never will actually do, just day dreaming to him.

Nice counter or table. If you re-orientate that banana it will make a much more suggestive setting.

Downpipe also looks good, is that stainless lock wire? I am going to have to use that because the straps I used with the little locking ball is bullshit and they fall off with a quickness.

my car is back on insurance. I drove it to work friday. She needs quite a bit of work here and there besides the body work. At least soon it will warm up and I can start working on it. I ordered my turbo rebuild kit, got a 2003 brake booster, and a few other things here and there.

I decided to put my tax refund to student loans so I am holding off on my big purchases for the miata until after paint I think. (brakes, sway bars, etc)

Why a 2003 brake booster?

I think my booster has been crapped out for a long time, and the newer boosters offer a higher torque ratio, so essentially less petal effort for the same amount of force. I'm going to start off using that and a 96 master and see how I like it, if not I will play around with other master cylinders..the newer ones have a bigger bore, but they also only have 2 outlets (1 front 1 rear) where the 96's have 3 (rear and 2 front)
