Looking good.

Please aim for 600hp. I think you could actually pull it off.

May I ask how much you paid for those? I have a lathe and mill, and probably could make them.

That's not bad. I probably couldn't make any money fabricating them.

And why not? Are they made by magical elves deep in the heart of tubro mountain?

You can buy bronze bushing stock fairly cheap, in many grades. I even have a tool post grinder setup, so I could get that pretty finish on the surfaces as well.

The idea of making these fit and getting rid of the smoked turn signal housings has crossed my mind. Considering the front bumper is fiberglass, I could do this relatively easily...

Didn't the fuji racing ITB equipped car have those lights fused into the bumper? IIRC it looked okay, but kind of ghetto.

Edit: quick google search found



Looks better than i remembered.

Not bad, but definitely not good. Just doesn't flow with the miata square lights IMO
