I have axis power racing hood, roof, trunk, and rear finish panel. They all lined up like wtf and like your car mine was hit in the back end ******* up the rear fenders ever so slightly. When you get it all together you'll be the only one to notice the little ****.

Still think you shold go with the bottom one I posted and attach it with dzus screws (to the fenders) and the other proper mounting hardware (which I can't recall).

Just read the whole thread, great build. As far as the body panels, I'm sure you'll figure something out that you will be moderately happy with. Though I don't think it will matter much when you're behind the steering wheel.

I think I'm going to get another 1.6 motor and start rebuilding it down at the shop and have it done for the spring. If everything goes well the next couple weeks I'll probably start on rebuilding my Garrett as well. I got the sudden urge to want to spend some money on the miata, now I just need the time. lol

Ohh and +1 on **** the snow!! I'm going to try and get a truck by next winter with a plow. I'm done with shoveling.

Just read through this entire thread. Love where the car is heading. Very impressive numbers will low boost. What octane fuel are you running?

I'm sure you're itching to actually do something with this car.

Did you see that guy's Audi in NY? He woke up to a foot of ice on it. Water main burst from the 5* temperature, and all night long traffic was splashing water up on to it. Just a random story your snow woes reminded me of.

Another random factoid about that guy... he finally got enough ice chipped off to get into the car and get the car started. He then proceeded to turn the heat on full blast to melt the ice off. Then physics decided to make him it's bitch and thermal shocked his windows into a million pieces.

got the pass side flare mounted, fixed my coolant leak and ran the motor a bit. yesterday i took it out for a good beating, drove it to my friends house (illegally of course), he has some roads that i could open it up a little bit. man is it fast. scary fast. but i need longer gears cause it goes from out of boost, to hitting boost, to limiter. just burns through the gears and thats with the 16" 225's. also im not aligned yet so that will help. but what fun to drive. so i got a little motivation boost which is nice

I just read the entire thread and loved every moment of it. I wasn't even on page with a 1/4th of the things going on and i'm liking the way this is turning out.

If you still need a roller and can make the drive I can get one most every weekend if you wanted to come out to this side of the state.
