So today I drove out to the Miata intending on putting the dash back together and then going out for drinks with friends.
Instead, I get into cleaning mode and end up ruining a shirt (work shirt, oh well) and getting beyond recognizable in filth.
It doesn't look like much, but it was like this thick paste of dirt. Wouldn't just whipe off, really took elbow grease and a couple dozen rags to reach clean paint under all that.
Can anyone identify this paint color? It's like a dark blue metallic.
So before you waste your time telling me, yes I know they are shitty pics. I got to the car (20 minute drive) and realized I forgot my camera but after the epicness of reaching "clean status" on the driver's side of the car, I just had to snap a few pics w/ the old phone.
I also cleaned under the car. Couldn't identify but 2 bolts on the transmission, and could only spot 3 on the oil pan. Under the car seemed to have something resembling old used oil mixed with cat liter then pasted all over everything. It was a ridiculous pain in the *** to get off. Then it stuck to the storage unit floor in big globs that wouldn't clean off w/ degreaser. It was pretty ridiculous.
Identified the VIN tags on the engine and trans to match that of the car though.
