And I'm glad someone experienced was running the power buffer. Really??.. have you ever seen a Mustang paint job..up real close? I do agr...

Painting a Miata

Wired the dash for installation including the all important switch for " the circuit that I always forget".. The fuse panel is attached to the back of the dash with 3M structural adhesive all of the connections are soldered because crimping sucks https://i.imgur.com/Kogwjqwl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/...

It's the little stuff that makes you go crazy..I was able to remove the fuel injection throttle linkage, pull the cable out, shorten the cable shield, then drill out the cable stay, solder it back to the cable shield, and then run the cable back through it..about 3 hours work. THEN..came building th...

Painting a Miata

I've run those on my MG Midget race car...I loved that car, should never have gotten rid of it. I still have some of the weird tools you needed to adjust those. Another side draft was the Carter side drafts found on the original 54 Corvette Blue Flame 6 engines. Imaging wadding my fat azz into a Mid...
