SIKstep Blog | How To | Rolling Fenders and Coilover Install | Part 1
A brief how-to on rolling fenders using the Eastwood Fender Roller. Did this on a NB 2nd gen Miata in order to fit his new wheels. Because of the lower offset, his tires would rub on fenders possibly causing damage to both.
The heatgun broke on the first fender so everything was done without one. It is not so bad, it just takes a lot more finesse to keep the paint from cracking

MX-5 Suspension upgrade
Earlier this year we put this video together of our MX5 being fitted with
all new Pedders eXtreme coil-overs. Originally when took the car to the
Wakefield Park, just running the lowered springs we pulled out, the car
managed a 1:16.3 with only a basic brake upgrade, intake Exhaust and Advan AD08 tyres. We're happy to say
that with the eXtreme coil-overs fitted, we shaved off a whole second and
got the car down to a 1:15.1. The amazing part too is that this was with no
major adjustments to the suspension given the amount available and as the
day progressed we suffered a sticky rear brake caliper which affected
braking performance, yet were still able to go just as fast!
Big thanks to Adam Gillick from Pedders, as well as the team from Pedders
Bankstown, Pedro, Allan and Dimitri.
If you're keen on the eXtreme Coil-Overs for your car, then head to the
Pedders website which is www.pedders.com.au or www.peddersusa.com if you're
in the US to check out how many cars they're available for!

How you shouldn't roll a miata fender.
Needed to slightly roll the fenders on my NA Miata, Not paying $200+ for a
roller. This way worked fine for me, no more rubbing & looks fine. Did all
4 corners, turned out decent enough.
Cost: $5 for 4loko and monster. Everything else I had at my house.
I don't advise doing it this way. Its not very safe, might shank yourself.

Fluid MotorUnion Getting Fabel Off - The Lowest Static Car in America??
Miles said he wanted Fabel to drag frame. And with a little bit of
wrenching, we accomplished that for him :)
The car's a smidge higher now, just to make sure the frame rail
reinforcements dont rip off the frame rails, but it's still dangerously
We wish Miles and Fabel the best of luck on his way to H2Oi this year.
Because luck will certainly come in to play here :)
Work Performed on Fabel (the Miata, if you haven't guessed) at FMU:
-Oil pan skid plate install
-Underbody skid plate install
-Front wheel spacer install
-Custom Exhaust midpipe
-Custom muffler exit + shroud
-Custom Exhaust tuck (for maximum lows
with minimum risk)
-Jackson Racing header install + heat wrap
