Trying to figure out how someone with minimal body work experience could make something like this on the cheap.



Ideas?

Spray foam and learn to fiberglass maybe?

You could probably do it how the pass did his canards. thin mdf cut into the shape you want, then fiberglass over it.

Let's say i already have the wing thing from this car:

1. put tape on your trunk and quarter panels.
2. great stuff foam where you want it.
3. shape it.
4. seal it with spray paint so that the fiberglass doesnt destroy it.
5. fiberglass
6. possibly profit :)

It's not going on the MSM. ;)

The saab would be a good start, if your good with body work you can prob cut that up and make it work.
Yeah, that's what i'm thinking... the Saab spoiler is only about half an inch short of being perfect in terms of width for the car. :D

I wish I had multiple cars.

No... no you don't. Because then you end up like me and have a bunch of parts laying around, and you don't even remember when you ordered them, what they're for, or what car they go on.

And then you're juggling trying to learn Hydra at the same time you're spec-ing out the easiest way to get a certain Escort up and running on Megasquirt with a minimum of wiring bullshit but trying not to give up any major capabilities that will prevent the car from running right.

It sucks. Bad.


Oh, and i need to weld the latch back on the trunk of the MX6 because it's ripped out. :evil:


First world problems. I have them in spades.

You can give me the MSM. It would be a huge weight off of you. :lol:

Why don't you just go MS on the miata and tune it yourself?

I might SELL you the MSM. ;)


Because the MSM was never supposed to be a project, which is part of the reason i'm so mad about it.

For the price i paid, and the fact that i bought it after being told by a few people "in the know" that it would run and drive just like a stock car, but with more power, and will be just as reliable as a stock car and blah blah blah....

None of which happened, really.

I was supposed to maintain this car. Not rip out the ECU and start over from scratch. I don't have time for that.

It's going in to AIM in march, so we'll see what happens. Either it runs right or i sell it.
