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.

NB Miata Rear Caliper Rebuild
Disclaimer: This video is provided for educational purposes only. I accept no liability for expenses/injuries/fatalities caused by the failure of equipment as the result of following these instructions. ---- I couldn't find any DIYs or full tutorials on performing a caliper rebuild for an NB Miata, so I decided to make a recording of my process. Note: I'm not an expert, so if the terminology or procedures I use are incorrect, please let me know and I'll gladly update the video. If your calipers are leaking and you're unwilling to spend ~$160 to replace each caliper, you can buy a rebuild kit for $60 for both rear calipers. I purchased mine from Moss Miata, part # 904-451. This contains all the dust covers and seals that you'll need to rebuild it. The process is not terribly difficult, just time consuming. I was fortunate to not have any seized or stripped parts, and everything came apart pretty easily. Most of my time was spent cleaning dirt/brake fluid/grease off the caliper. If all goes well, it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to do both. Be sure to adjust your brakes and bleed your system after re-installing the calipers!

This is my attempt at body work to salvage the left front fender of the Miata with a claw hammer. I'll follow up on this at a later date when I'm closer to painting the car. I hope to have a shop's opinion on whether it can be saved or I'll have to buy a used one.

andy's auto in cali sold me this body kit (miata)pt4
This is a Fiberglass body kit that was sold to me. My rear bumper it no where this wide. This is crazy. I can fit four fingers in the gap on the passengerside. The top of the kit isn't even straight. On the driverside the bottom of the kit is met by the tow bar. You cannot lift the driverside up to the body. When I tried to return it they would not accept it. They told me it was handmade after I brought it and I would have to modify it. Beware of these guys.

Testing a Friend's Camry Around SoW (4/30/2011)
Yes, I took a mommy grocery-getter around a racetrack. And yes, it has the normal V6 1MZ engine with a OEM TRD Supercharger puttting down 240whp (270hp at the flywheel), TEIN Super Street coilovers, some 225-wide KDW2 tires on some 16" wheels and had the benchseats removed (where the kids would normally go), but it managed a 1:35.9 (with another passenger) around the track with me driving earlier in the day. I wished I got it on film along with the 1:35.9 lap, but there was footage of me getting pointed-by by BMW and Lotus drivers. Makes me wonder what those drivers were thinking as the Camry shuffled past them. Track: The Streets of Willow Springs (CW w/ Blowpass and Bowl)

Had the car since 2005, finally got round to getting it in my mates body shop and getting it sorted out, it only went in to have a respray, but found it needed more and turned into more work than i thought. But hey, it's all good because it makes the car all that much better in the long run





Miata crankshaft pulley wobble
My miata developed a serious crankshaft condition. I hope it can be repaired without replacing the crank. :(( Update: As dgl1962 noticed the crank itself is not wobbling, but the pulley is. I can tell you, from my web research, that a worn woodruff key is the probable cause. I was planning to replace the pulley, woodruff key and the crank bolt and not required to fix the condition, but as a precaution, also change the belts and the water pump. I was selling the car at the time and a buyer came just as I was about to order the parts. He insisted to have it fixed by himself, so I sold it before I could fix it. I've later heard from him that he did indeed fix it, but couldn't tell me any details. He just said that the whole "front" had been replaced. If your beloved miata has developed a similar condition, head over to miata.net to the garage section, they've got a great article about pulleys and additionally search for "Loctite Crank Fix". It involves replacing the part's I've mentioned and using loctite to glue the whole thing together as a safety precaution. If you have any more questions I can try to shed some more light in the comments. I hope I was at least of some help :). Cya PS: I'm now driving a '07 NC. A great car, but I sometimes miss the rawness of the NA, even with it's quirks.





SuperMiata 2015 Round 1: Buttonwillow Race 4
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.
