G-String Bikini

6 year old POS soft top.

My combination install / review of the Project-G G-String bikini top for NA and NB Mazda Miatas. Spoiler alert: You want this top.


All About Head Studs

Chasing the threads.

The last in my series of technical posts dealing with changing out the head gasket. Everything you ever wanted to know about ARP head studs. It’s pretty awesome.


Sorta-easy Coolant Reroute – part 2

The Big Hose - the thing that makes this "easy."

Part TWO of Sharka’s coolant re-route! There are very few toy photos, but that’s the only deficiency in this post. 18 more coolant re-route photos round out this DIY project. Take a peek.


Hey buddy, got the time(ing)?

Notice how the front lobes are sorta pointing at each other? That's bad.

So, there I was. Standing in my garage, tired and hot. But I had my keys in hand for the first time in a while and was ready to start Sharka’s engine with the new head gasket, new coolant re-route, and ported head. I pressurized the fuel rail and checked for leaks…


Not Quite Tatooine

Just needs one more sun...

A single shot of Sharka under a smoke covered sky. I call it “Not Quite Tatooine.”


Instant Robot Surprise

There's a thin line between being a hero and being a memory.

Vintage Transformers on a new kind of Polaroid film from The Impossible Project.


Easy Coolant Reroute – part 1

Coolant re-route parts! Ninja not included.

Part one of Sharka’s coolant re-route. There was just too many photos to get everything into one blog post. And there was this little ninja who threatened me if I didn’t put this up right away…

Tool Review – Coolant Pressure Tester

Mityvac MV-4500 Coolant Test Kit

While I continue to wait for all the parts I need to complete some upgrades while I have Sharka’s head off, I thought I’d do a quick review of the tool that made it all possible. This is the Mityvac MV4560 “Cooling System Pressure Test Kit.” And it’s a beauty.


Vegas Night Polaroids

The Flamingo. I wish there had been a better place to shoot from.

I lugged my huge tripod and two cameras all over the Las Vegas Strip at night. My reward was six beautiful squares of chemicals, plastic, and memories.
