    Maybe next time I'm home I'll get myself a welder. Tool Topia has some nice ones for not much money.

    I respect everyone's opinion. Of course I'm going to do what I want, but I like hearing what others would do. It would be a dull world otherwise.

    Finally heard back from Rev9 about the reflectors. I was supposed to get them, Jet Stream neglected to package them with the parts. Considering it only took two days for me to get the big pieces from Japan once they were made, I'm interested to see how long the reflectors will take.

    Been hearing crickets so lubed the clutch actuating fork.

    The more I look at the diffuser setup, the more I like it. I used to dislike how far the exhaust tips stuck out past the bumper, with the diffusers in place it masks that and makes it look more of a piece.

    What have you done to your Miata today?



    Finally getting around to repairing my 3rd brake light on the MSM. 2 of the 6 leds were out. All fixed!

    My '95 is running. Poorly, but it's running. Ended up ditching the BP4W head and went back with a BP05. Had no compression on any cylinder. I literally checked the timing fifty times. Removed the head and not a single valve is seating to the head, light can be seen through each seat. To minimize downtime, I installed the BP05 and it starts. Had a fuel and coolant leak- fuel was injector #2 and the coolant was the thermostat neck. It was cracked (by me) and hoped for the best as the other TWO I had in the box of parts I got were both broken. Waiting on it to arrive. Otherwise, it starts and runs.

    What do you think was causing the valves to not seat?


    Maturity is knowing that you were an idiot in the past. Common sense is trying to not be an idiot right now. Wisdom is knowing that you will still be an idiot in the future.
