I am not saying they are not nice cars or that there are not some fast ones out on the street but really its still a neon no matter what you do to it.

So I was looking at my car this morning while it was on the lift and noticed that the radiator bracket and intercooler bracket are about 1 inch lower than the bumper so I do not have enough money for the R-package lip that I would like so I am going to try something I have not seen in the miata world yet. I am going to try the HD (Home Depot) lip kit I will post pics as soon as I am done to see what everyone thinks of it. I plan to one day get an R-package lip but this will help hide the brackets for now.

Well here it is I got the lip on. I tried a piece with a little double sided tape and did not like the gap it made so I used some adhesive I had in the shop and it worked great. I want everyone to keep in mind that this is not a lip for performance it is cosmetic and it is to hide the bracket coming down for the radiator. It covers the bracket and looks good. I also put a little tire shine on it to make it shiny.

i hate srt's. granted they are fast but i wouldnt drive one. just wanted to say he made it to srt forums.

*edit* sean if ur gonna do the diy lip go to home depot, look for "diamond loc garden edging" i did it. it works pretty good. looks okay. just when you finish bolting it up use black silicone between the lip and the bumper so you dont see any holes. way better than the garage door underseal lip. but it is a bit more expensive:

the edging is 10 bucks +- and for 12 pairs of nuts and bolts 5-8 bucks? the garden edging is thick plastic, not rubber. perfect lip for a low miata imo. when i had the garden edging lip on my subaru it ripped off at one point. but i slammed the absolute **** out of it so thats why.

Thats your "homie"? What a dipshit. Don't hang out with him anymore. I about pissed myself laughing at the complete jackassery of that video. It was really funny when he just got out and was like..... uhhh what happened? Also, the video on streetfire says it is more than just the clutch.... Someone else, cover the grammar please.

What do you mean by "touge run" is this another lip style. If you know were to get some more information on this one I would like to see what it looks like.
