Aaron, I have watched every video of the Cosmo, probably twice over... Very motivational stuff. Keep it up! Can't wait to see it finished

Part 46: RFID Door Locks/Openers - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration

First things first: I'm going to freely admit that this project is not critical to getting the car finished. Honestly it has just been an idea that seems to have implanted itself in my head a few years ago and rattling around inside me since then. So I decided to inject a little fun and magic into the previously shaved doors (remember part 8?) with the addition of RFID actuated openers. And yes, I realize this episode is fairly long and perhaps should have been lacerated into two parts, but I think you'll understand why I didn't split it up by the end and chose to keep it homogeneous. It also turned out to be very involved, in the sense that part 46 includes almost every fabrication technique I have access to: welding, rapid prototyping (3D printing to the lay person), fiberglass, electronics, programming and anatomy. Oh, there might also be a visit from a certain special guest to help out. One other fascinating fact is that I used more disposable latex surgical gloves in this episode than all previous episodes combined!

It's weird reading the words "Aaron's ***" and "insertion" in the same sentence.

Epic video. Now it's really permanent. Only way to loose it now is by misplacing your hand.
