|February 4, 2011 - The chassis was seam-welded before the transformation into the Targa Miata began.|
But nothing had been done in the engine bay. While waiting for a subframe to show up, he finished the job using the diagrams out of How To Build a High Performance Miata. He also did some work in the wheel wells.
This makes a big difference in the car. I've been driving around in a Miata that's seam-welded and fitted with a set of FM frame rails, and it's a remarkably rigid chassis. It'll really help the front end deal with the torque from the big engine.
