Targa Miata
February 14, 2011 - The V8 Roadsters front subframe is here - and it's a beautiful thing.
We also received the differential mount. More V8 Roadsters parts are coming, but the subframe will allow us to double-check our transmission tunnel modifications and move forward with the work.

May 10, 2012 - The replacement subframe from V8Roadsters arrived on Tuesday.
On Wednesday night, Bill and I swapped it into the car. That's the broken one on the floor. It took about three hours total to do the swap. The jigs at V8R are obviously pretty good, because it slotted right into place with no hassle whatsoever. The biggest hassle was dealing with the fact that I routed the oil cooler and power steering lines through the middle of the motor mount brackets, so those had to be disconnected.
The car's going in for an alignment tomorrow morning and then it'll be as good as new.
