That diffuser on the other hand..........drool
i was afraid of that, all the angles i can find make it look great, but i want to see more front facing angles and i cant find a single one.

pretty sure that's shadowmx5 on clubroadster.net, find his build thread and I bet you find what you are looking for.

I've always wanted the AK one for my MSM, but the reviews from AK recently has been pretty horrid. I've also heard of some other parts from CM not fitting as well (which is to be expected).

At Miata's@MRLS last year there were dozens of miata's sporting those, and I frankly wasn't impressed with them in person either. Definitely look better in pictures than in person (again, likely due to angles and good photography)

i spent alot of last evening going page by page through the thread on CR that Humming suggested. Some angles look awesome others look less than desireable. I think given what I've seen last night that I've been swayed to, at the very least, put that spoiler on the back burner.

Miata came home from the body shop yesterday. Its been an eventful 24 hours!
heater core under the dash blew out as i got the car home so i had ALOT of coolant to clean out of the drivers footwell. bypassed the heater core for now so i can still drive it this summer.
Tracked down a vacuum leak that helped idle, and the car seems to run a bit better now too!
Ordered tires for the Jongbloeds and got confirmation they shipped this morning, thinking i should have the new wheels and tires on the car tuesday or wednesday!
going to see my good friend in Lancaster, PA next weekend and we will be installing Tein Super Streets, Mazdaspeed (Accessory) Rear Diff Mounts, and new rear brakes. some fun changes coming for the msm

Installed my new (to me) Mitsubishi Eclipse vents. work substantially better than the eyeball vents did, and IMO look a lot better as well

Nice glad to see youre back on the road! I dig the vents. That's something I've considered doing but always talk myself out of it.

Thanks man, im glad its back!
its a really easy job, a credit card (to slide in and pop the eyeballs vents out) measuring stick (to mark where the Eclipse vents need trimmed to) and dremel (to make the cuts) make short work of the install, and you can generally find a set for less than 40 bucks on eBay. i say do it!
