Suspension Install! Sorta

Yes, I say “sorta.” Because I didn’t take many photos. Because I punched myself in the face with a crowbar. . . . . . So there I was, all done with the front suspension and the front chin spoiler install, when it was time to turn my attention to the rear. I had my […]

TEIN rebuild part 3

Happy TEIN Box

Here we are! The final part of the TEIN rebuild tale. Part 1 and part 2 can be seen on their respective links. The UPS tracking showed that I’d come home to find my TEINs waiting for me tonight. It was not wrong. There was a happy box on my doorstep with a familiar logo. […]

TEIN rebuild part 2

2nd TEIN statement

Remember part 1 of the rebuild? Click that link if you don’t. I received notification from TEIN today that my shock rebuild is finished! The total was $524 before shipping. That’s a good $15 cheaper than their low estimate and shipping with paypal was $1 more than their high estimate. I’m happy with that. And […]

Rollbar and frame rails

Shark Fin

It was a big weekend of car work. A long weekend. Loonnnnnnng….. Half of Saturday and all of Sunday. And it was good. And I didn’t lose any fingers or toes. I started with the rollbar. This marks the 3rd rollbar I’ve installed in a Miata. I always wondered if it was possible to install […]

TEIN shock rebuild

TEIN rebuild form

Something that’s been in the back of my mind for a while, long before my 97’s wreck, is having my TEIN shocks rebuilt. The shocks have something like 60,000 miles on them. I’m the 2nd owner. The first owner was my buddy Tom, who used them on his 99 for about a year. They were […]

The Last Ride of the 97

I’ve been so hard at work stripping the 97 that I’ve not updated my blog with pix of it. I’m quite done now. It is very stripped. Not much left. This weekend, I bought a nice big shelf to store parts and make room to actually WALK in my garage. I came back to find […]

Dead Car Update

Empty

I’ve not written an update about the dead 97 for a while. As I sit here in front of the laptop, every joint in my body aches. I glare in the direction of the garage. I dream of the time when I’ll be done (soon) and able to park my new 95 in there. Soon. […]

The Office

The Office

Not much to talk about here, I just wanted to post this shot of Sharka’s interior to the blog. I’ve tried to take shots like this before that show the whole interior without focusing on a specific small part and have sometimes struggled with it. It’s hard to get a good angle that gives a […]

longest head unit install in history

Crazy Mary

One of the few casualties of the Big Wreck of 2008 was my JVC head unit. It shot out of the DIN socket and broke the faceplate on my Voodoo shift knob. Getting hit at 70 mph causes weird things to happen, I guess. Bummer cause I really liked that stereo. It looked nice, worked […]

We Got Badges

Product Placement

I’m really proud of this shot. It has a lot going on that you can’t immediately see in the photo. A lot of meaning, to me. I’ll try to explain. The MX-5 logo is from the first Sharka. Sarah bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago from a UK website. I’ve always […]
