Howdy! and an aftermarket upgrade installation question?

Post by Mack F » Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:38 pm

Hey guys!

I'm getting back into Solo next year! I'm looking forward to seeing all you ole' timers again and meeting alot of new faces! It's been 10 years or so since I was active so I'm sure alot has changed!

I'll be driving an ND Miata that I bought a year or so ago. I just purchased several after market parts ( shocks a front bar exhaust etc.) from Johnny Rose a few weeks ago. I'm currently living an an apt. down down and don't have the resources in town to install all the parts on the car. Do you guys know of a reputable....and reasonable....shop in town that could do the work for me? I'd like to have one shop do all the work if possible. and then have an alignment done...would also like to ID a good "open minded" alignment shop! :)

Thanks in advance guys and I'm looking forward to seeing you all in the Spring!

Just had an opportunity to read through some of the treads and it looks like much of this may be addressed on the board....either way thanks for the input!

Mack, I'd be willing to do everything except the alignment to make a little extra money. If you're comfortable cutting the stock front bar off the car, that is - otherwise it's a real pain. I did the same bar on mine. Just let me know.

Thanks guys! Looking forward to it!

I would love you're assistance if you're willing Chris! No issues with cutting the bar. What are you thinking as far as time/cost required? Do you need my help or can I just drop it off.....and promise me no funny business since I'm in your class...lol

When can I bring it over. :)

Best

Shameless plug -- I work at European Auto Garage and would be happy to do the alignment. I like to think of myself as pretty open-minded, lol.

Keith has been stricken with this condition called LeMons racing. Exposure doesn't necessarily mean you'll get it, but if you do, it seems to be incurable.
