imo, its only ricer if it stays unpainted. But needs turbo for those annoying ricers that you will attract.

Only needs turbo for me. Ricers dont bother me and they pretty much are non existent around where I live anymore. They've all grown up and the newer generation doesnt have the fast and the furious to look up to and make them looks stupid by following it. That and the fact that most kids nowadays couldnt care less for cars anymore. Its kind of sad actually

So ... Wouldn't a sheet metal nibbler have been a bit more precise?

Yup but I figured Id channel some Faefail for this. Ended up using an air cut off wheel to finish the cuts up yesterday

Did it before with zero issue.


Yesterday I had Ryan (gdnimrod) weld up the fenders proper.


A little teaser for the side mirrors. I know these will be polarizing in taste but I like em. I was a bit worried when I ordered them because I was unsure if theyd go with the car but they ended up working out. They are super light too and for 30 bucks, Im happy.


I got my new tires.


Ill get some pics up of them mounted later on. Today Im going to try to finish these god forsaken tail lights. I feel like I almost bit off more than I could chew with these but Ive made great progress with them. Theyll be worth it once they are done.

these tail lights have been such a huge pain to work on but im too far into them to just let them collect dust and not finish them. Hopefully I can have them done by the end of this week

That looks good. I think once all the body work is done and the car is painted it will look really good.

Totally changes the look of the car. Doesn't even resemble a Miata anymore...
