Your understanding of materials and their properties for engineering uses is greatly lacking if you can't make this basic connection. The reason you're "breaking new ground" on this stuff isn't because you're smarter than everyone else who builds cars. It's because what you're doing isn't a good idea.
Dont have a tig welder for aluminum, aluminum too expensive, 1.5" rubber lines wont flex the way that i would want and they would become brittle in 125* vegas heat, so, copper it is..... Doesnt corrode, so why not.
Well, i decided to build a dash for the car to give it a cleaner look.
Bought some posterboard and started cutting and taping everything together to it fit pretty nice, then i transferred all those cut pieces to a piece of steel, traced them out and built the puzzle all over again riveting them together so they are permanent.

I measured everything and made sure it was center then started cutting.
Test fit went well.
At last, i tried something that i have never done before. Upholstery. The corners has me struggling and there is 1 seam at the top, but overall, no complaining with the finished product.
I am currently waiting for 3 more digital meters to go underneath each gauge. Orientation did not matter at the time of the photo. All that is left is to rivet the switchboard and instrument cluster in place and then get the dash portion of it done and then bolt everything in.
I finally, after 1.5 years, have finished the K-Swap into my NA. We really took our time and tried to make this a very clean swap and I feel it turned out awesome. We were able to make 210 whp which is less than I wanted but still surprisingly quick. Now its time to work on the interior as it is...
So it looks like Audi quattro (AWD) cars have a super narrow, yet relatively strong rear diff weighing in at about 54lbs. There are posi-trac and worm gear options available for these rear ends, and they have ratios 3.55-3.89-4.09 available in the standard gearsets. One of the common issues I...
My name is shawn, im 28 years old and im about to show you how to LS swap your miata without spending a million bucks on parts from companies.
here we go, apologies for bombarding you guys with pics.
First, you find yourself a nice little miata. In this case, im using my nb1. [You should...
