WOW, That's some amazing work!!! And how do you keep your shop so clean :D I could never do that :D

It's too bad you couldn't get bearings to fit the mazda upright with a larger inner diameter for the 300zx hub. They cheat like that for the Civics in drag racing. ;)

Trust me, it isn't that clean. I could not find any bearing that would work and also that wouldn't allow me to use the Miata outer CV joints, which have a seal to keep water out of the bearings in the uprights.

The uprights;
The stock Miata upright.

Image

The stock Miata on the right and the modifled on the left. I removed all the extra material that Mazda uses for fixturing (the machining of the uprights at the factory)

Image

I also rounded the square protion to clear the 300zx rotor.

Ready for primer

New Bearings and assembled.

This picture shows the relieving that had to be done to the back side for a close fit.

The finished upright-5 x 114.3mm bolt pattern, a little lighter, and looking pretty!

Next up is the rear brake brackets. These are to adapt 300zx TT caliper with 300zxTT rotor to the Miata upright.
These will get anodizing in the end. Used the mill and belt sander in the construction. Can't wait to get my new to me CNC mill hooked up, to make this type of part easier and with less time sent.

Let's keep this thread on track and try to keep things clean.

Monte, if you want me to prune the noise from your thread, let me know. Oh, and by the way, nice stuff Monte!

(Derek, I started posting before you got one up there, so this applies to the comments above yours)

Hey Monte,

I remember us discussing this at the last Shasta in '06. Cool to see these updated pix, I wish I had your skills. Look forward to the progression on your wagon, think I'm finally about at the end of working on mine (yeah right). When you get it finished we'll have to take the wagons out for some backroad testing. Say hi to your wife.

Thanks guys, for the encouragement. Progress has been non existent lately because of the house remodel , that the wife and I have been wanting to do for a long time and plus it is too cold. So hopefully I can get back on the SSE soon.

Anthony,
The back-road testing would be fun! The wife says hi back.
