The "Poor Volvo and Poor Miata" seem to be getting along well so far.

I'm pretty sure this is what we came to see:


Edited to say: This is a good idea, Miata chassis, 5.0, P1800 ES, a match made in heaven.

How embarrassing... I have been "Outed" as a Bugeye Sprite sympathizer! I swear it was not mine, just building it for a friend!

Glad someone found the correct video!

Lots of us here with old English roadsters. My dad has a '57 triumph, and user "theflyingtog" is a miata enthusiast with a bugeye as well as his Volvos

The fun game of making a sandblast-damaged car smooth again. Lot of hours beating the roof panel to get rid of oil-can dents. Coulod not have done it without the shrinking disc. Got the panel to within 1/8" at most for filler depth, but never was going to be metal-finished car to start with. Not that it was rusty, just very wavy.

Color will be a dark, non-metallic blue, done in a base-clear paint. Engine compartment was already painted. Shame I had to strip it back to metal because the paint never fully hardened! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
