Haha, neat feature huh? Nah, the cap is just missing the little set screw to hold the emblem.

I've been looking for pictures of the recent car show I went too. Though it wasn't my sort of thing I thought I would have "Best Mazda" but nope. Some slammed ***** deep Miata did.
My car information sheet probably didn't help haha
My car at Plushfest:

Yes, you have no idea.
The new intercooler will have proper brackets and I'm thinking if doing some ducting.

It makes me incredibly sad that a car like that actually garners genuine appreciation. It's absolutely ruined. Gay tow strap in front like race car except no suspension travel so no race car and horrible stance and retarded JDM-ness everywhere oh LOOK LINES OMG I HAVE A JAPANESE FLAG AND SWAG STANCE!

Nick, who did that powder coating job? I have a hard dog bar in the garage that needs to be sanded and painted anyway.

Markus over at Sharp Customs does all our powdercoating and tire mounting. (See the IS300 and AE86)
Legit small business guy.
He did all my mounting brackets/hardware in black too

I think it's funny someone took the time to negative prop almost every post I made recently.
I wonder how they like colored text.

I felt the same way a couple weeks ago, but then I remembered props dont mean anything.

Waht the ****? What exactly am I looking at here? I bet the rubber is cracked, rust through into the tank seems unpossible.

Yeah....
it's the area where the gas tank fill lines leave the trunk area and there's that brace..
Well, what's left of it.

Steering wheel and wheel spacers installed.
I like the feel of the car more. Feels very solidly planted.
Looks better too.
My store is having its grand opening this Saturday and we're having a car show and what not. Should be interesting and filled with some nice classics (I'll take pictures and what not)
Now to tackle this leak and corrosion at my fuel tank fill, LC-2 & center console gauge pod install, roll bar install, cowl brace install, frame rail install, powdercoat wheels, and then new turbo setup.
