I need to see if I can grind out some of the rust, if not I'll put some rust converter on it and call it a day. I'm painting tomorrow. I can't feel my arms anymore.

Have you considered just painting it with no undercoat? Maybe just undercoat around the wheels.

Great color, but promise me you will keep the black door sills. I can't stand repainted Miatas that don't keep that black strip. Makes the car look fat, round, and heavy.

There's rust on this car? Where?

That blue with bronze wheels will be sick! (<== See there you younguns', old guy using Millineal lingo -- I "almost" said groovy).

We'll need a group photo of you with Fire and Curly. LOL!

I agree on the bronze/blue looking sick. Good choice of words Rick.

I disagree on the rockers needing to stay black. When i repaint my car it will absolutely have color matched rockers, because i love how the car flows with them matched. As long as you paint your front lip to match it can look great.

Just look at the cars in Fireindc's and Curly's signatures.


Tangentially related: Does Curly's sig pic bother anyone else? It has that aliased edge look.

I turned off signatures a long time ago because I can't stand scrolling through them. I'll check their profiles.

I do think the black rocker look is the way to go.

Yeah, I'm not 100% sold either way. When I do my car, I'm going to paint the rockers body color, then I can plastidip the rockers black if i decide i want to go back.

Black rockers are nice from the standpoint of being able to fix deep gouges/scratches with a bit of flat black spray paint. I seem to do a bit of that after each track day. LOL.

Hey bro (This is Brad, hi).

I'm going to have to argue against the LS Blue. As a BMW Douchebag I vote for the estoril blue or Audi/Lambo grey. Single stage white is ez and cheap though. The single stage and 2-stage white on my two 325i's look very very similar in sheen and color. Making it more incognito may help unless you plan on having a garage/different place soon.

Bronze on grey, and this is a brighter bronzish color:

Those wheels would look great with the grey.
Send me a side shot of the wheels with tires and I can shop something up for you in diff colors if you'd like.

You're work is amazing man! Boy I tell ya as soon as I do everything my wife asks me around the house I'll reattach my ballz and go to work as well. And then...we drive!

Edit: I vote colored rockers as well, seeing grey/black rockers makes it look like a cheap trim option IMO.

Win either way. The gray looks great and would look great with bronze wheels too. But the blue is such a great Miata color.

That's my vote. LS blue... estoril blue is awesome too though.

I came in on page 5 and was going to suggest Jeffbucc search for a cheap/used rotisserrie. By the end of page 5 he was practically finished.
