That’s a Miata shifter, and upper turret, connected to a tr6060 Camaro transmission. Gotta keep that Miata feel 😂 more pictures to come once I finish up. #ls1miata #selffab #diy #dkfabworks #squirrelymcdrift #thatmiataguy

Now that the front end is back on, time to start on the interior. Transmission tunnel is first on the list. Gotta tell ya, I HATE welding to the unibody. But at least it’s teaching me some major patience, (and how to fill holes quickly 😒😂). Probably taking the sanding disk to most of the seams I weld on this tunnel, not my prettiest work 😔😂 #mazda #miata #ls1miata #squirrelymcdrift #dkfabworks #selfbuilt #selffab #thatmiataguy #topmiata

Not a tube front, but does the job and is removable. Have to finish weld the mounts still, but everything lines up (except my twisted/warped front bumper, but we won’t acknowledge that right now...🙈) Next up, trans tunnel 😅 #dkfabworks #ls1miata #selffab #selfbuilt #thatmiataguy #topmiata

This. These types of messages, are why I love drifting. Not the self confidence boost part. The part that other people enjoy watching the car, or going for rides. I love the excitement people get from riding in a drift car, or watching them rip. 10/10, would not be as addicted to this sport, if I couldn’t take spectators for rides. It’s probably my favorite part of the whole ordeal. If you see me at the track, never hesitate to ask for a ride. I always save a few sets of tires just for ride alongs. #mazda #driftmiata #driftcar #fanmail #idoitforthefans #thatmiataguy

Not a tube front like I had wanted, but still fairly light weight, and will be removable for ease of pulling the engine. Thankfully I saved this core support when I cut it off 😅 #squirrelymcdrift #ls1swap #ls1miata #proam #diyfab #dkfabworks #selftaught #selfbuilt #thatmiataguy

What’s your offseason project? Tag me, and tag your friends. My Turbo Miata is being put on the back burner, while I thrash to make the #ls1miata build a reality. #squirrelymcdrift Has a long ways to go, but it’s been at the top of my list for a solid while now. Don’t worry, turbo Miata isn’t going anywhere. It’s locked away in a comfy storage, while I plot and scheme how to build its evil twin. But its time to make shit happen and get this thing on its own 4 feet. 😉 #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #dkfabworkssuspension #thatmiataguy #diy #topmiata #offseasonbuilds #selfbuilt #selftaught #iowntoomanymiatas #becauseracecar

Made the first part of the engine mount for the engine plate to bolt to. Still trying to figure out how to add a little more bracing to it. Also working on the trans mount. Wanted it done tonight, but need tools I don’t have, need to buy more stuff to finish up tomorrow. Engine will be mounted by the end of the weekend though 😊 #squirrelymcdrift #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy #ls1swap #ls1miata #diy #selfbuilt #selffab

The start of my trans mount for the tr6060. Need to go to the metal yard after Christmas to get the rest of the supplies to finish this. Thinking I’ll make it two piece, so this piece can stay on the trans, and be used as a lift point if need be. And have a nice cross member that is easily replaced if damaged. #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy #squirrelymcdrift #diy #ls1miata #ls1swap

About time I actually started working on this again 😅 PSA: the TR6060 trans is an almost impossible fit for a Miata 😑 oh well, cut more I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️ #ls1 #lsswap #ls1miata #dkfabworks #squirrelymcdrift #thatmiataguy

One less Miata on the road. Poor low mileage nb2 is buckled in more spots than you could imagine. It’s low mileage drivetrain and suspension is being swapped under my recently acquired 1991 Miata however. Gonna be cool to have a vvt swapped na. Also, full 1.6 engine/trans/driveline and suspension will probably be up for sale for cheap cheap. Going to put this entire 2001 Miata under the 1991’s shell. More details to come on the parts for grabs. #mazda #miata #diy #dkfabworkssalvageyard #lol #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy

Miata pics will come again, but for now, here’s my truck, doing more truck things. Tag cool truck pages for me! 😂 #truckthings #notjustamiataguy #roughcountrysuspension #roughcountrylift #chevrolet #silverado #crewcabsilverado #nittotires #dirtytruck

So, I did a thing today 😍 2007 Silverado Z-71, 4wd, 6 inch lift, and 155k miles. The White chevy was good to me, but it was time for an upgrade. Little bit of a “happy birthday” to myself. I friggin love this truck. Been searching for this almost exact truck for awhile now.
