NA MX5 nut-and-bolt OCD rebuild

OCD-MX5

Imagine for a second that you just bought a car, but that car was located 1800 miles away, meaning you had to travel that distance to collect the car, and then drive it all the way back home. Now, keep your imagination going, and ponder how you’d feel if that same car got stolen from your driveway less than one week after you bought it. Pretty shattering, right? Well, what if it wasn’t just stolen, but also crashed, flipped, and completely totaled by the theif? I think I’d curl up in a ball and just cry. But not Jeff, the owner of this turbo’d Mazda Miata/MX5. After taking a week to grieve, he sought about buying a replacement car and rebuilding it piece by piece, ensuring no dirty or unpainted/polished product so much as touches the car. It culminates in one of the cleanest MX5′s on the planet, better than when it rolled off the production line.

    Jeff,

    Fantastic build thread. I have been following this on miataturbo.net and I don’t think I have ever seen a nicer build. I am glad this will be driven and not just sit in a garage to be looked at. The road is where it belongs!
