  1. I'm considering buying a car remotely from a dealer in Denver. Does anyone have a recommended mechanic in the area who could do a remote pre-purchase inspection at the dealership?
  2. I'm looking for a helmet bag that's a step up from the free cloth drawstring bag that came with my helmet. I'd want it to hold my HANS, head sock & gloves in addition to the helmet. Whats worked for you?
  3. Thanks Matt - it currently has $27 Walmart tires on ?
  4. That's plan B. But it involves a dusty & poorly vented garage, so was hoping for something a little bit better.
  5. Our father/son project car is close to being ready to paint. Does anyone have, or know of, a paint booth for rent in the Houston area?
  6. Thanks for the offer - I managed to pick up a stand for $30.
  7. FYI....check your HF jack stands https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a32619739/harbor-freight-auto-jack-stands-collapse-recall/?source=nl&utm_source=nl_cdb&utm_medium=email&date=052320&utm_campaign=nl20172927 https://images.harborfreight.com/hftweb/recalls/Jack-Stand-Recall-56371_61196_61197.pdf
  8. Damn, wish I'd been monitoring TJ before buying a used BP VVT from a junkyard (Eaststreet, so fingers crossed). Too late now....
  9. Thx Tobey - I just bought my engine, so not sure when it's arriving (yet). If I had to guess, my time frame overlaps with yours (3-4 weeks). It's a project car so not urgent - I'll update when I know more.
  10. Anyone in the Houston area open to loaning out an engine/shop crane and/or engine stand? My son & I have a 90 Miata project car and will be putting in a replacement engine soon....
  11. Continue restoring a 1990 NA with my son. It's just 1000 small jobs, one after the other.... Thank goodness for RockAuto + home delivery!
  12. As usual, you TJs don't disappoint! Great feedback - I hadn't considered some of the cars suggested. As for budget, I'm thinking up to 3x cost of a well sorted Miata. That probably puts me in BRZ/E36 territory.....
  13. I've been tracking a Miata for about 6 years and am considering a change. Wife is onboard but no budget agreed yet. Would need to be driven to/from the track, so must pass ODB II inspection (:-() and AC is a must since I'm in Texas. I've been browsing streetable race cars on rackingjunk - Corvette, BMW, Cayman. Obviously running costs will be much higher than the Miata. What HPDE car would you suggest?
  14. That was my conclusion - it'll get a weird heat pattern & then fail. Amazon have agreed to send a replacement even though it's outside the return window.
