Im now moving on to designing the interior. There will be carbon fiber in good quantity partly supplied by CarbonMiata and of course Autokonexion. I'm gonna go for what Im calling a "neo retro" interior. You'll see it when its done.

Any teaser pics of the new interior or tail lights? Just because we are clubricer.net doesn't mean we don't like to see your rice.

I have no pics at the moment. Im going to do some rough sketches this weekend to map everything out for myself. Im also waiting to hear word back if some custom parts i want made can in fact actually be made. The answers I get will change things up a bit.

Im getting excited as hell right now because my Autokonexion version 2 trunk lid comes in today and my Speedworks tail lights will be finished tonight. I have my side mirrors that came in saturday and all I have to do is build the base for them. This means that after tomorrow night, I will have all of the exterior pieces and can FINALLY start doing bodywork and paint!!!!!!

Its taken me quite some but this car now is exactly what I have wanted to do to the exterior for many many years and Im happy that all this time has been worth it so far. I still have a few little things to do to the exterior but nothing major. I STILL havent buckled down a color yet for paint.

lol, you're about 6 months too late for those jokes.

Meanwhile you are still building a Fast and Furious stand in that will be all bark and no bite.

Edit: I...I...can't lie. I will probably love this car. **** you, Jared.

So I think Im going to build a bit of a higher compression engine using 01+ NB pistons, a shaved 99 head and throwing an MS on the car. Basically, the same motor config i used on my all motor car a couple of years back. When I get the money and time, Ill throw a turbo on the car and shoot for my 280 tq goal. At least this plan affords me to have a bit more fun with the car then complete stock until boost.

I say this plans alright IF

1) you aren't tracking it
2) you have e85 avail
3) you actually boost it, and don't leave it limp dick hustler powered for too long.

No need for e85. Its a pain in the *** to find where I live. Ill be using meth again once the cars turbo'd. This car will never see a track day, thats what my other NA that I will eventually buy will be strictly for.

I almost feel like you need just a bit more tire under that wide body. I think it also looks incredibly ricer... that is until you paint it all one color. With it N/A currently it definitely falls into the all show and no go category.
