Default My JDM Corvette

No, this is not a LS swapped miata. I dont plan on swapping it unless i can find a very cheap conversion. The reason this is "my JDM Corvette" is because i use to have C5 convertible and i called it a Miata as a joke. I always wanted to confuse people and buy a miata just to troll, but it got way out of hand. Eventually ll make a parts list, but for now i jut have progress pictures. I plan on bringing the car to shows, drifting which iv already gotten obsessed with and maybe track it.

This is my first miata...





so you get the idea?? well heres my JDM Corvette

the day of purchase




Put some ebay side splitters on and ended up liking the G-fuser style later so i sold them.


gives you an idea of my insanity




about a month later some parts stared coming in and i went out a bought a way over priced hardtop





Bought some smoked signal lights for $40, but i found these lights that im thinking of putting in my bumper and using as signals and then open up the original holes to use as air ducts (more for looks than function)



Did something fun with the ugly headlights. I used black duct tape at first now some heat resistant paint.























Trim makes it look cleaner IMO





Thinking of doing dual blast pipes out the middle of the diffuser. I got two exhaust systems... Neither fit well with the diffuser





Im having truoble uploading todays progress but i basically cleaned up the back panel and trimmed the energy absorber to fit the diffuser (tomorrow).

I hope so too.
It's comical to me calling your vette a miata, but American flag draped over jap car? I don't get it.
One thing I appreciate is that you seem very interested in your miata, and you've done a lot of work to it...that's what it's all about man.
Another thing that a bunch of us who have been here for a long time will never let our brains get tainted by though, is, drifting. If that's what you're into...that's your thing and we support your performance mods and will help with questions.
However, Ken Block can suck it. Drifting is the zombie apocalypse.

You should post this over at Miata.net. They would probably appreciate this sort of car better.

Track day events? Drifting is considered a "track day event"?
