I’ve had good luck with Eastwood welders. A friend bought a TIG, MIG, and plasma cutter that I used to help him build an exhaust for a cobra swapped lincoln mk8. I liked the Eastwood MIG enough that I wound up buying the MIG 135. Its worked well enough so far for patching up my rusty miata and rebuilding the exhaust Read more

I highly recommend getting a full faceshield and a 3m half face respirator after getting way too much crap in my eyes and spending too long inhaling welding fumes advising a Formula SAE team.

Looks great! Looks very similar to one I made for a pinewood derby we had at work a few years ago.

Yeah we had a set get thrown in for free when I bought a drill index for our FSAE machine shop so we compared it to our end Mills and they were laughably bad. I think they all broke when someone was trying to cut a slot in a fiberglass panel.

They’re side cutting drill bits, so you can drill through then cut a slot if you need to. I had a set once and they were pretty bad for anything besides wood. Read more

The answer is to practice. Once you do it for a while its fine, but you’ve just got to tough it out until you get used to it. Otherwise just get an auto that doesn’t have the added weight of a hybrid system.

Wow thanks, never seen those before. They look great in your alfa and they’re so affordable now I’m thinking about them or some of the baja’s for my miata

How did you stick the glass to that wheel?

Lol you got that right. Its hard to find a car as ugly as an SRT4 caliber. But they also have 300 hp with a lsd from the factory so I guess they’re ok.

Except that the caliber SRT actually had performance vs being a styling package.

Take the insurance payout, buy back the totaled car and make it reborn as a track car.

They’re great, I recommend them to everyone now since they’re so inexpensive

Weird coincidence. My centric black rotors are for a 2 though, but I have the same set up on my Miata.

It’s not too bad to take the tray off. Mine only has 4 bolts left in it so it literally takes 30 seconds.

Do it. I love having the miata. I picked up an example that just so happened to be rusty in all non-essential areas and pristine everywhere else, but got it for a steal because of it. It’s basically my daily in the summer since it gets 30mpg.

Lol, that would have been my first recommendation, but it sounded like you wanted a hatch. Is that yours? Read more

Just pull it off then use a solvent like rubbing alcohol to remove the adhesive. Could also use a heat gun to make it come off easier.

Damn that’s awesome, if I were closer I would seriously be considering offering my 90 na up for a trade
