Default Mica in Montana. Everything must be gold!

This is the 96' M that I found on Seattle CL after months of searching for the perfect car to ruin. Called the guy who was of course 60+ and couldn't get in and out of it anymore. He said he could hold it for me for a week, that way he would have more time with the car before he had to finally give it up.

Packed up and took the 820 mile drive out to Seattle to buy my new car.

I couldn't have asked for a better example. The only thing that was wrong with the car was the oem alarm system had been disconnected because it was killing the battery. The car is was perfect.

I did a few minor things. Clear bulbs for the front blinkers. Clear side-markers for the front and a GV rep lip which has now been ran over 4 times from the snow tearing it off my bumper. I also painted the stock wheels.




Boost is coming just stay with me

Bought some BC 12k 10k Coilovers for a steal from a friend who needed some money and only had them on his car for 400 miles.

Bought a set of new Firestone Winterforce tires to drive the Miata through our terrible weather for those days when the Volvo wouldn't start (most days as you can tell)

-Nrg short hub adapter
-Nrg quick release hub gen 2.8 in black
-Nardi 330mm deep corn wheel ordered from rev9
-Daikei Gold steering wheel bolts also from rev9

TDR Lip
Installed my new oem lip and track dog racing splitter. A nice change from the gv lip.

Default Wheel & Flares

Carbon Miata Flares
The fitment was spot on perfect, I highly recommend these to anyone.
We spend a few days getting them on the right way. Cutting, welding, seam sealing. I used rivet nuts and stainless button cap bolts with washers.





Volk Mesh Wheels
Made in the early 70's before Volk was even called Ray's Volk Racing
Magnesium Centers that are Tan and match the soft top and interior perfectly
15x7 et0 front and 15x8et -7 Rear
Oh and bfg rivals b cuz meat

Not much to say except it's MS and it is not gold. Came with EBC and everything else!
