I've actually been kicking this around over the past few days... If somebody could get me a really good dimensioned drawing, I could get a few adapters done pretty cheap.


Material is going to be more than $60 unless some turns up at a scrap yard, though, and CNC time isn't free...

Nobody has a drawing (I remember asking the same thing way back when), and I never bothered to create one from my plate, so unless you draw one up yourself I wouldn't waste your time trying to track one down.

How about you take one for the team and pull yours out and send it to me to measure?

If there's enough interest I'll create one myself, and cut out the middleman . I have Pro/E too.

Hardest part will be sourcing the aluminum plate.

Man, I have to think that you'll need at least a 16x16 piece to work from. And sheets larger than 12x12 go up in price exponentially.

so i kind of f'd up by being lazy and not measuring for myself... i need a 14x15 piece of plate... bad thing is that i already called about the 12x14 and they said they can cut the new piece but they are gonna charge me for both since they already cut the one. i tried to explain that i have no use for a piece thats too small and but the sales woman was pretty rude and said tough crap and that i had to buy both...i told her ill take neither and im now looking for another source for the plate... on the plus side i picked up my 1.8 miata torsion lsd complete rear end

i pulled the rear end out of the spitfire for a little comparison... the stock spitfire rear end assembly weighs at least 2/3 if not 3/4 of what the whole miata drop out weighs. damn cast iron. with it out i can lift the rear of the frame off the ground with one hand.

agreed


more updates... pick n pull now puts all BP miatas in their premier yard... and charges alot more for the parts... either way i got a complete 94 front subframe. the sway bar to a hit but i was planning on upgrading it any ways so im not too concerned about it. everything else looks perfect.



i love my 12sec micro van



everything stacked neatly waiting on the tubing to build my new frame

Awesome project.

I have the FD transmission & the 370hp miata, need to put them together , so I'm definitely in for a copy of that plate pattern, or a pre-fabbed plate, if you are building one. Quite willing to split design costs.

Yeah me as well. I have and FD trans I'd love to use. How would PPF mounting work? I know RX7 transmissions have PPF mount areas but I imagine you would just need a rear diff brace and ditch the ppf?
