  1. I think Matt93SE is correct about how much Mueller will do. Don't think their contractor will do the interior walls etc but ask them. I'd bet one of their approved metal contractor guys has someone else who would do the inside. Or you could get a "normal" residential contractor who would sub out the metal building stuff and do all the rest. One thing to note is my building has eaves and residential gutters because my wife insisted on that look rather than the normal metal building. If you care about that it would likely be a special deal for Mueller. I'll PM you my "normal" builder buddy who does high end stuff in Roanoak and surrounding areas and whose wife did the layout. Talk to Mueller about whether they only have standard size buildings or will custom size something.
  2. https://photos.app.goo.gl/npM4urEYaod7s7BM8 I had it built by a guy who is no longer in the area. Talked to Mueller buildings but at the time they only sold metal and you were on your own for construction. Now they have builders as part of a package. The wife of an autocross buddy (who is a builder in DFW area) did the design. Can give their info. All welded construction. Thicker choice of exterior panels. Lantham super windows. SEER 15. I’m 25 miles SW of MSR-C in a development where everyone has 20 acres. Hydromulched yard with native flowers and grasses. Mow 2X a year when everything goes to seed or is dead. Property taxes are based on a barn. I’m over 65 so frozen at $2270 per year for it all. Pro is much cheaper to build than conventional, energy efficiency, no exterior maintenance. Con is must find the right person to sell to. The living area is stud walls with drywall and blown in insulation. Exterior walls wind up being 7.5” thick. Spray foam sealed it so much (including top of ceiling drywall and wall between living and garage) that had to do a commercial style AC that will introduce fresh air into the system. Garage is split into a 3 car and 2 car with smaller heated/cooled by a thru the wall unit. Room for at least 5 cars, especially if Miatas. Only have 4 right now. Garage ceiling is 11-3, house 10. Stained concrete floors, crown molding, granite kitchen. 400’ of concrete driveway down a steep hill. Long view to the West.
  3. yes, Hornetball's shop is AWESOME I second the previous suggestion of insulation and ventilation I live in a "barn-domium" steel building with one end small garage (53 x 35) and the rest three bedroom, two bath house-inside-a-barn spray foam it to death and use both gable vents and a ridge vent to get air thru the very top of it foam adds a lot of rigidity and makes a huge difference in interior comfort I combined foam everywhere with convention blown in stuff in all the walls (drywall inside) my average electric bill (100% electric and aerobic septic and well) for 10 years is $135 a month, including two $10 meter charges not related to usage
  4. Like this one http://www.racingbeat.com/Miata-1990...ars/54101.htmlSold my NA$60 cash face to face. Do not want to ship due to awkward size. I'm near MSR-C
  5. used Eibach # 0700.250.0325 as used in NA6 Spec Miata rearLike this https://www.summitracing.com/parts/eib-07002500325Two for $80 shipped
  6. Wilwood apparently has grown too much too fast and has some quality problems I had the Wilwood 4 piston kit on the front brakes of my NA bought new slotted Wilwood rotor rings from Summit installed them and went to bed the new pads got a horrible shudder each time I touched the brakes apparently the machining of the slots caused the pad to grab the edge of the slot returned them to Summit without a problem bought blanks and no problem called Wilwood and they had "never heard of that" my buddy Hornet Ball had exactly the same experience
  7. Thanks Eric I looked harder and found a spot in the wheel well that I think will clear the tire
  8. I have a direct 12v powered AMB/MyLaps Tran X 260 Direct Powered Transponder And am moving it from sold car to replacement Question -- does it need an unobstructed view of the track? Or can it be behind plastic engine undertray on an NC Miata? Anyone have theirs mounted that way?
  9. Sold my 1993 track toy and have several new spare parts left over NA cooling fan relay New never used Beck Arnley 203 0095 $10 shipped https://www.amazon.com/Beck-Arnley-2.../dp/B000CB246U NA and NB new AutoZone clutch slave cylinder $10 shipped https://www.autozone.com/drivetrain/...7073_0_0_59970
  10. Still available. Start of the new season. Car will be at MER for their Grand Opening on March 2
  11. Thanks for the input I finally decided to do only the driver side (got a deal on one seat with mount) and did the 2 ohm resistor for the air bag and left the position sensor under the seat Supposedly, now the steering wheel air bag will work and no warning lights
  12. Anyone done this? Driver side only I saw an older thread on another forum talking about how to trick the seat weight sensors. https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=614984 I assume that is to allow the steering wheel airbag to function, rather than to just keep the dash warning light off. Is that correct? And putting 2k ohm resistors into the side air bag circuit to keep that idiot light off.
  13. Another price drop to $8000 Can arrange to meet most anywhere, or deliver for the right deal
