Candy Red


After a 7 month break, work was rather hectic,the repaint is complete.  THIS is candy red … not the horrible Barbie magenta mis-tint abomination I sprayed last Nov.   After a few days it will be ready for polishing.

FM intake kit for the MSM

What a great Craigslist find.  Full FM intake kit with new BOV and O2 signal modifier for half price.  Best part is I sold some stuff I had sitting around on Craigslist to pay for it!

Mazdaspeed Miata 1.8L Turbo with FM Intake

Mazdaspeed Miata 1.8L Turbo with FM Intake

This is what I started with.

Mazdaspeed Miata Stock Engine Bay

Rear Shock Top

This is an aluminum casting that had a pretty ugly parting seam and damaged paint.  Below is the result of a quick polish … fail.  So I decided to reshape this piece with a file then some 100-600 grit sanding and then polish. There’s two of them, so I guess I’m half way done.

Miata Oil Leak …

While replacing a spent clutch I found that the motor is drooling oil from one or all of the following places: oil pan gasket, valve cover, crank position sensor, front crank seal.  :/  I feel like I should just pull the motor and do a timing belt job while I am at it.
