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.

How to straighten a bent frame on a budget
A friend of mine stuffed his Miata into the wall at the exit of Turn 6 @ Laguna Seca. Bent the left front frame rail, pushed the radiator and fan back up against the motor. With only 2 hours until qualifying, with the help of a few friends, he put on a clinic on low-budget frame straightening. He managed to get the car out for qualifying, came back and did some more work in the afternoon, and finished the weekend with a 2nd place finish in ITA.





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! Many thanks to bluemeany06 for his video on rebuilding an NC Miata's front caliper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXcClOfFmlg

Mazda MX-5 ND (2015) - review by Autovisie TV
Helemaal klaar is de nieuwe Mazda MX-5 nog niet, maar Autovisie mocht alvast een zeer exclusieve testrit maken in de vierde generatie roadster. De achterwielaangedreven tweezitter die al 25 jaar zoveel rijplezier biedt. En dat voorlopig ook blijft doen, zo maakt de 1.5 versie met 131 pk duidelijk.

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.
