Oh gosh how things change. I still haven't wrapped my Miata around a tree, but I sure have come close a few times... Here's a recent pic chillin out with my buddy's 1st gen CRX Si. No Honda hate here, I love driving that little CRX around when I get a chance.
Yes, that's duct tape holding on the lip. I hit a raccoon and it ripped off the mounting point on the bumper and the lip itself. This car is jinxed a bit..
So maybe I'll eventually post pics of the car post-garage accident, but the car was also backed into twice (no note left either time), so I had to bondo the trunk. It was then hit while parked again, but my dad did it- and I still liveunder his roof so no reimbursement there. It then got hit why parked again
by my uncle's trailer while he was parking on my street. I pocketed some insurance money and installed a Chinese fender.
So at that point, I had a primered grey good, primered black fenders, and a beat up black bumper. The rest of the car was Montego Blue.
So I plasti-dipped that bitch! first green, then black. Then blue pearl. I installed Flyin Miata Springs and KYB (Kill Your Back) shocks. Then I chopped the fenders and installed AK V1 flares. I had to buy Rota Grid Concave wheels and meaty 225/45 RS3 tires.
Then I hit a deer. **** jumped right out in front of me, I had no chance to avoid him.
So I took the insurance money and bought some Jass Low-Profile Headlights with the proceeds!
I have some more plans pre-turbo:
-install frame rails (which I have already)
-plasti-dip it again
-go 15x8 with a bit more aggressive offset (not et0, I ran et0 and hated it) along with 205 width tires. Maybe I'll just get some 14" wheels and buy cheap tires...
My exhaust is 2.5" so it's turbo-ready for my modest power goals of 175-200whp. My turbo plans are to have someone here build me a megasquirt or get one second hand, then I'l install it, buy VEAL, and learn to tune in a vacuum like a good boy.
Then I'll slowly accumulate a GT2560, FM log manifold and downpipe (maybe custom downpipe if it won't fit my Enthuza exhaust), CX racing or FM intercooler & piping, ID750cc injectors, and that's all I really have pinned down for now. BTW I'm at 169,000 miles and burning a little oil. I plan on running on the stock motor until it blows.
