Flyin’ Miata fans will recognize the name “Project 707.” It’s the car that Keith built for his buddy Eric with lots of Porsche inspired details. It’s a great project. I was a faithful reader when it was being built.
Like all good projects, it was never really finished.

I put some of my new keychains through hell. This is how they held up.

Here’s something about a year in the making – keychains!!!
A set of Transformers-themed gauges that I got to make for a customer. If you like bots, check this one out.

Another year, another pair of calendars! The 2013 calendars were so successful, I decided to make them for 2014 as well. I got some great submissions and am looking forward to hanging these on my wall.
My old quilted vinyl door panels were starting to look rather cheap to me. Meanwhile, I had about 1/3 of a hide of leather sitting in my parts shed. A plan formed…
I’ve been asked a few times “What does robot cut mean?” in reference to my gauges. And, for the first time, I’m lifting the curtain and showing how it’s done.
Sharka gets a new part, my store gets a new product, and I get an incredible sense of satisfaction. Retro Hazard Switches! They’re the new thing. Come check out the pix. You might gloss over the bad writing.
This blog post has been 6 months in the making. That’s how long I’ve been working on removing OEM parts from my Retro window switches. And finally, I’m there!
By OEM parts, I mean the stock window switch. I used to hack them up and add the metal plate and industrial switches. It was a fine thing to do, but I was slowed by not being Mazda. I didn’t have an unlimited supply of switches to hack apart. I had to wait for folks to mail me back their cores so I could make more switches. Sometimes it was a long wait.
Custom color Warbird gauges. Years ago, I would have said this wasn’t possible. Now? No harder than any other gauge order.
