Holy shit I love this thing! It has single-handedly saved my life. I've been struggling with stuck bolts and fasteners for over a month now on my old, rusted out Miata. I've torn two ratcheting handles apart and snapped one wrench trying to get those asshole bolts off. This saw has solved that in 20 minutes. I can FINALLY continue with my disassembly!

Finally got my hands on a proper sawzall. Since nothing else have worked when trying to wrestle the exhaust and drivetrain out of Vicks, this will do. I'm gonna go postal on this rustbucket soon and once the drivetrain is out, I can scrap the body... And then it's modifying time for Project Bumblebee!

Took him out of winter storage for a the premiere ride! I also took the time to adjust and set the needles after the gauge install.

So, how many of you want to see my TVS 900? I know y'all turbo nuts, but give some love for the sexiness that is the huge TVS 900 blower! It'll be going into my Miata this spring.

Well, turns out that 45 minutes spent updating my parts, adding parts I hadn't added and taking time to tag them out in the photos added quite a bit of mod score. I was missing maybe 12 separate parts that are now added. Funnily enough, I'm now up to #85! Woot!

About 40 more mod score and I'll make it into the top 100...that's pretty wicked. Can't wait to get that rusted heap out of my garage so I can get back to modding. I will get into the top 100. That's a promise! Expect awesomeness this summer, aight?!

The installed gauges! There are more pictures in my garage of the installation process. Apologies for using a potato camera, but I had nothing else at hand at the time.

Replacement midpipe
2/27/17

I've gotten an exhaust leak and I believe it's in my midpipe-section, or in the junction between the muffler and midpipe. Regardless, my midpipe is rusted to hell, so I think I'm just gonna buy a new one. They're super cheap really. I can get a new pipe shipped from the UK at less than $190.

Finally a vehicle specific wall! (also gauges)
2/20/17

So I've received my set of Revlimiter gauges and I've taken the gauge cluster off of Vicks and am pondering whether I want to put the gaugefaces on that or replace the Indiglo faces on Bumblebee. See, in order to make the Indiglo ones work, I had to drill a hole in the top of the gauge cluster. (install video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soBpdw50Piw&t=1s&index=2&list=PLbzG_U1QRBBamTro3WR1D0h5zQef-fYlU )

Also, I know it's been completely stale in my builds (and my posts) here for a long time and for that I apologize. I feel that with the Wheelwell badge I kinda need to step up my shit and actually contribute. The reason everything is at a complete standstill is that I've been really busy IRL and I can't work on Bumblebee (my green Miata) while Vicks (my blue Miata) is still stuck in the garage. I've been disassembling him and parting him off piecemeal, but I've gotten stuck trying to extract the drive train. I've sold the engine, trans and diff to a guy, but getting it off of Vicks has proven to be more than just loosening a few bolts. Everything is so rusted that most bolts have fused to their nuts and fittings so nothing gets them loose. I've broken two ratcheting handles trying to get them loose, and even my breaker bar does nothing. I'm going to see if any of my garage neighbours own a sawsall. If so, I'm just gonna gut the chassis bracings and

Well then. Apparently I spew enough useful crap on this website to deserve the Team Wheelwell badge. I'm honored! Please enjoy my content and if there's something you wonder about, feel free to toss me a question! (However you do that on this site. I still haven't figured out a way to directly contact someone for questions, and having to hunt the newsfeed for a post they made is also awkward.)

1/22/17

Lots of progress today! I removed the soft top and stored it for sale and I also finally figured out how to remove the entire dashboard so I could loosen the HVAC system and wiggle the carpet out. Now I've saved everything I wanted from the interior, save the steering wheel but I need that in place for moving the car around. I'll pull that off prior to the truck coming to pick it up. All that remains now is to empty the diff and take it out, take the transmission out and finally extract the engine. Then I'm done and Vicks can be scrapped. Unfortunately, I need to get a proper rattle gun to get the bell housing bolts and the exhaust out. I can't loosen them by hand.

1/17/17

Serious case of the withdrawals. I'm a bit stuck on my disassembly of Vicks (my blue MX-5) because I can't get the bell housing bolts out without a rattle gun. They're too stuck to get loose with my wrenches and all the extensions needed. I also need to drain the tank, but I don't have something to store the gas in yet. Hoping to get back to work on it this coming weekend. I just want to get him out of the garage, so I can work on my ACTUAL car :P
