DONE!

Posted by Andrew Warren , 12-20-2010 - - - - - - · 236 views

My Spec Miata is finished and ready to head back to my home town in NJ and get some vinyl! I had a friend of our race team print out the graphics from some designs we sent him by e-mail. They only cost about 60.00 for the whole set! They were pretty easy to put on with the application kit that was sent with the graphics.http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net...

Part VI

Part VI:Assembly   This process was a cake walk compared to paint. I had the transmission and engine pre-assembled and I had detailed directions that i made when i disassembled everything so putting things together wasn't bad. I had to cut the blower motor, make seat mounts, find custom mounting points for the gauges, figure out how to custom mount th...

Part V: Paint    GOD painting the car was a bad idea. I couldn't believe how many hours i put into a RACE CAR paint job, but something wouldn't let me cut corners on this one. Well over 100 hours into sanding and priming each panel to ensure perfection. I'm glad I did this because i learned so much and I'm pretty darn good at painting now,...

Part IV:Roll Cage   I was able to get a good Xmas deal on a MiataCage.com roll cage kit as well as an ultrashield seat. I had a local friend in Greenville, SC who is an EXTREMELY good welder so i sent the car to him. He had never done a cage before, but I had no doubts. One thing i forgot was to gut the doors before i sent it to him but i gave him some me...

Part III: Moving Day!   I moved my stuff to a new garage that I picked up for 150.00 / month. For the size, i couldn't beat it! I also got some small things back together like putting the sub-frames back on, cleaning up the fender wells and engine bay, and installing the suspension so i could roll it around and get it ready for the cage.http:/...

Part II: Emptying and cleaning the whole car.   Seeing as the car was full of uneeded pieces, i figured this would be a good time to strip it down to as simple of a chassis as possible and clean the WHOLE thing. I mean i stripped everything - subframes, wiring harness, there was no bolt left unturned. I lost a bunch of photo's of this process, so thes...

SPEC MIATA BUILD!

Posted by Andrew Warren , 12-20-2010 - - - - - - · 264 views

This is going to be a slightly photo intensive blog because I built my car last winter and can't particularly remember everything that I did. I've got a spec miata in NJ where I've ripped everything out and rebuilt the motor, got a brand new transmission, and a torsen differential to go in it. The chassis was all beat up and I felt like it was...
