Glad you are ok! That’s the hard to fix thing. Did the muffler repair hold?

:)
What advice do the MVS cheapskates have for DIY exhaust repair?
Hey! I resemble that remark!
haven't had good luck with those wraps or cement on my sisters’ Miata.
Truth is out, finally... :lol:

Beetle Boy.

WAID....don’t forget to post exterior colour code and interior (charcoal?) To get the vultures circling.

Where Is the car located for the big stuff?

My sister's Miata :lol: Hey, it was actually my BROTHER'S Miata before I gave him an S60! Hahaha

Well... we did buy the car from a 24 year old girl... but it was automatic back then. Now it has 5 manly gears, a clutch pedal, and 1.8 roaring liters of fury!

But you're the one with the Beetle. I wouldn't be talking about Miatas! :mrgreen:

Post up pics in the classifieds section... that should help get things moved quickly! Also post on Facebook if you're on there. Lots of people looking for parts over there.

Oooh... a 144 would be sweet! And 760 turbos are pretty hard to find these days... either one would be cool!
Knowing me, I'll likely end up with both. :D

There is a 6 inch gap now where the repair was... not sure where that piece of pipe went, or a few other bits for that matter.

Exterior color is black, interior is black (I think they called it charcoal). Will take a pic of the chassis plate next parts run.

Despite AAA footing the bill, no tow company wanted to tow it to my present place of residence, so it's parked behind a trusted relative's house near the OH/WV border (PM for more location details). Will post in the classifieds soon as I get the pics all together.

Hmm, Ive got a PITT trip coming up. Don't really need more Stone Black 019 parts though - market saturated at moment!
