I was going to go red with black top, pillars, and mirror top. The only reason I don't want to change the color completely is the engine bay and door gaps and everything.

Do black top/mirrors/pillars. You won't regret it.

I'm right in the middle. I need to see some pics of the red/black and I'm too lazy to search.

I really been thinking about the new turbo setup, but I'm gonna max this one out first. I'm trying to get my own place, so the car is kinda on the back burner. I've got the GV lip on the way, should be here today or tomorrow, and flares are most likely gonna be after MS. You getting rid of the K1's?

Looks like you are making good progress. I'm a big fan of the rharris hoods.

Hey! That bumper looks familiar...

Yeah some sucker sold it to me for 20 bucks! Turns out the fenders I got from you are straight minus the one little ding. Gonna have our body shop pop that out tomorrow and put the front back together. Mine both have creases. Thanks again!

SWEET! I'm gonna be putting mine back together in the next few days. Should have my hood pinned and bolted on and the lip fitted. Gotta save for MS then gonna paint it. Curious as to what people are doing if the car is outside with scooped hoods? Just let it be? Cover it up? Hopefully it won't be a problem in the near future as I'll have my own garage WOOHOO.

Miata might be on hold financially for a little while. Might be making an offer on this. Cross your fingers for me guys. Just found it tonight, it was just listed yesterday and it's in my price range. Sorry for rambling I'm all jacked up right now. haha

Well I didn't get that house I posted previously. It was sweet, but went for more than I had to offer. Anyway I have a little update. Got my lip from the group buy put on and tightened up the stock front bodywork. Got rid of the body kit YO! I pinned my stock hood because I took the latch off to fit my Rharris hood. The only reason I don't have that on is that I am worried about rain with the scoop in the hood. Anyone have any input? I don't drive the car in the rain, but it sits outside. Hopefully I'll have my own garage for it very soon. I've got an offer in on another house. If I don't get it I'm ordering my MS right away. I've got my injectors and WB just sitting here waiting. Here's some pics.
