Re: The "Retired" 510

Yep, to make it smooth. They do it on the roof to at the A and C pillars. That is why you see 510keeper putting lead in those spots. Those spots at the window and trunk opening are to help direct water, or not to allow it to pool.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Line it up straight, use a punch set that has the little nub in the center (helps to keep it centered), whack it.

Re: Jacob's other projects

FYI, the stain I had issues with was from Verathane (Rustoleum brand). Just was too thick and didnt penetrate. I switched to Minwax, and you can tell, first coat went in deep. I just got done with the second coat, and its way more even. Now for two coats of clear (Satin). This is 5 minutes after I r...

Re: Jacob's other projects

Fucking stain. I knew I shouldnt have bought that brand. It doesnt dry, and it doesnt act like a stain. Its more like a gel. Its thick, and way too hard to see the grain in the wood. Look online and see a number of people say the same thing about that particular color...

Gotta sand it down...

Re: Jacob's other projects

Got some work done. I kinda made a complete oversight... and I knew it pretty early on. I did think of way to assemble this while keeping all the screws hidden... Anyways, everything is screwed together, except for the back... because Im not sure how I want to seal it... https://xmmexw.dm.files.1drv...

Re: Jacob's other projects

I did it! I made my very first mill program using Cam software! That took a few days to try and both figure out how to get the software to output correctly for the machine, and figure out the actual move settings to make it properly. And a super duper high quality potato vision video! https://www.yo...

Re: Jacob's other projects

The gist of it is that sound is produced from a frequency. Inductors and capacitors like to limit frequencies. So with the right parts you can give a speaker a range of frequency that it is capable of running and also where it is desired to run at. If you would look at the charts for these two speak...

Re: Jacob's other projects

Got the second crossover assembled. Took more pictures. So once you have a plan like above, time to make it! I have a few sheets of copper clad FR4 (fiberglass). Both sided. So I can make a 2 sided PCB. First I drilled all my holes. Then I sketched out everywhere I needed to remove copper to make my...

Re: Jacob's other projects

One crossover assembled. Soldering to those large panels of copper sucked. Why after I prototype something I usually just have some real PCBs made, and they come with a type of gold coating to help with the solder. https://0mmhxw.dm2301.livefilestore.com/y4mmY50jptAneH8S0dQGwE5pGkESlVsunz3AoyuoR8ezR...

I like projects... I have like 5 in various states sitting on and under and in my desk. But this one gets the limelight right now. I have a stereo setup in my room... but I hardly use it.

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

I cant wait to see it sitting lower.

You may have to try to find a wheel with a flatter middle section. I do see people running 16x8 et50 on NCs fine. But its all about the rim profile.

Re: The "Retired" 510

My car was either White or Ivory stock. It was real chalking though. Run your hand on it and some of the paint would actually rub off. So then I painted it Subaru White. Now that I have to paint the front clip again, Im probably going to switch to BMW white, as it looks nicer, and there arent like a...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I bought a corded drill just for hole saw duty. I kept overheating my batteries with a 4" hole saw. Corded had more torque and didnt give up, plus being gear reduced it spun slower so it was easier to manage the hole saw.
