pre-welding hiatus

I don't think I need to cut out & replace whole sections of floor. I'll just patch it up.

I'll probably start a dedicated thread like the one documenting the rust repair on my 2004 Echo winter beater. More useful to people who are searching on the topic.

The floor is the last thing that needs doing before getting the car inspected & licenced.


I think I've done all I'm going to do on the MPGiata for a little while. I don't intend to drive the car until later in the summer, and I've got a pile of other projects on my plate.

So a little hiatus for now.

Project MPGiata! Mods for getting 50+ MPG from a 1990 Miata
Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: 70 MPG in my ecomodded, dirt cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage.
Ecodriving test: Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown
