Getting My NA Back Into Shape: Front Yard Body Shop

In case you are wondering where my 1990 NA6C Miata's been lately, it got into a traffic accident on May 8th, when my Miata collided with a Land Rover after I was cut off near an intersection. Damage was mainly limited to the bodywork and a bent tie rod. I was found to be not at fault for the accident by an insurance investigation. Unfortunately, the other driver's insurance considered my Miata a total loss. However, to me, it isn't. Since I already got my insurance check and I wanted to keep my Miata to transform it into a real racing car, I'm saving money for the bodywork by trying an old Spec Miata trick, wenching the body back into shape and banging out the dents myself, along with help, of course.

Some friends and I pulled the body off of my 1990 Mazda Miata to get it ready for the MEV Exocet kit. I suction cupped my GoPro camera to the bed of my truck and we went to work.

Started P7, finished P4. I had P2 locked down by the 2nd lap. However, Monty still had run low on fuel and started to stutter on high-G left turns. Fuel sock needed to be replaced, but I ran out of time to prep it properly.
