Re: The Ẽfini 7

Made the headlight covers red and put the new hood on. It's a RE-amemiya AD-9 replica made by CarbonMiata. Fitment it's really good. Had to trim for the tower brace and air box but that is typical with this style hood as the center sits very low. I like it so far but it is a little worrisome to be a...

Re: The Ẽfini 7

Well I finally got time to work on the car with the Body tech. It is back on the road and breakin' necks!! Needs some paint and I have a vented hood to put on. Just good to have it driveable again.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Not installed yet, well into the wiring process, just some light fixture wiring left which is super tedious and requires so many trips up and down the ladder it is exhausting just thinking about it! Ordered tile today and water heater, money is running thin but I'm running out of things to buy also,...

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

I got the slab poured and final measurements for the doors. I'm gonna call Clopay today and ask about the highlift option as all the local dealers seem to know nothing.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Been messing around online mostly and the best Iv'e found so far are Clopay doors, but when you go through the online door build it won't option high lift tracks unless you select "commercial doors" I can't see why it would make any difference though.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Its all coming together slowly. Garage slab will be poured on 4/13. Then I can start door shopping. looking for highlift doors and the only thing I can find is conversions for existing doors. I'm not sure if you can buy a setup already designed that way. IMG_20180406_131501.jpg IMG_20180403_153935.j...

Re: Front 4 Club

Interesting. Why limiting to FWD? don't wanna have the Miata gang involved?? $3500 to build a wheel to wheel tech passing car is crazy cheap?! he must have don't the cage himself or got a freebie because that usually costs around 3k by itself. Looks fun but I think the price may be misleading. I nee...

CAD play

Messed with lighting a bit, put some tire paint on, drilled the rotors and painted the calipers. Need to spend time on my real one but the house will be dominating my time for the foreseeable future. Its weird that the doors make those weird shadows when I do a render. 2-8.jpg Here is what the view-...
