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.

SuperMiata: Round 5 - Race 2 @ Sonoma (6/1/2014)
Though the result for me was P3, it was one of my better drives because I was 10/10ths the entire race as Emilio (#11) and Andrew (#72) did as well. I started P9 in a grid of 12 cars, reverse grid based on Race #1's results (I finished P3 in Race #1 the day before). At the finish, I ended up P3 behind Race #2 winner, Andrew, by only 2.9 seconds after 13 laps and Emilio in P2, a few feet behind Andrew.

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!

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.

Redline Review: 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata
After nearly 10 years on the market in its current generation, the 2014 Mazda Miata still offers the same lightweight, pure, and fun package the car has always been known for. Unfortunately, age may be catching up with Mazda fun little roadster, as the lack of tech features, noisy/cramped cabin, and somewhat lackluster acceleration make the car feel very old. We'd recommend sticking with lower trim and making this car as simple as possible. Be on the lookout for an all-new model for 2016.
