I was planning to use the ez clip because I can do it all in my garage. No need to go to a shop for crimping. The fact that it's easier to bend is a bonus!

Some pics of my shock mounts in my gallery. Look just like Burnetts, except welded to the frame.

I used por15 with great results. It's a multi part kit, cleaning, etching and sealing. I followed the instructions and have had no problems.

Last po before me was a drunk who hauled cinder blocks. Lot's of under the influence repairs and a beat up bed. I'd love to know the po's before him, however.

My 1.6L Miata has ac, but it is pokey when it's on. Still worth having though on really hot days. I shut if off if I need to accelerate hard, then turn it back on. AFA brackets, Alan Grove may make...

Cooling components, owned by Us radiator, can help. CC's price is a little lower than US's and it's all the same stuff. They build that model to order and it takes a couple of weeks. Worth the wait.
