If it's journal bearing, I can rebuild it for you.

Picking up my sand blasting cabinet tomorrow so I can do proper preperation for powdering parts. I'm thinking about starting up a thing for blasting/powdercoating parts for us miata nuts. I enjoy doing it, and a little extra cash never hurts.

Got my blast cabinet up and running, started blasting parts. I don't think my wife is going to see me for a long time.



I also painted ant threw my TSI's onto the red headed ****. I think it looks pretty good. They blend in better than they did on my white one.

Maybe you had performance anxiety? I can assure you she hits redline everytime I'm inside her.

I've watched a fellow do it in a shop once and it looked pretty straightforward. I just need to find my snap ring pliers
I don't know where they got off to...

The CHRA needs to come apart so I know which style of thrust bearing it requires so I can order the kit.

My 3 inch v-band clamp for the downpipe broke. The nut turned a bit then seized and the bolt broke, yay! Most common metals seem to dislike the amount of heat my exhaust produces.

finished up the torsen install the other day, found out there was new redline fluid in it (saved like 20 bucks there), and installed the kyb based coilovers i picked up. my car sits like a monster truck, needs some adjustment and an alignment.
