You can put whatever lights you want to on yours.

Here's the taillight we'll be offering. The outer ring is the tail and has a nice even glow in person. The inner section is the brake/turn light and is seriously bright. We have the appropriate electronics as well.


Lights off. Available with a red center as well, they light up the same way. I haven't been able to get a good photo of just the tail ring lit up.

It'd be extra special if those were recessed into the bodywork somewhat. I guess we'll have to see on Friday.

They are not frenched, as the bodywork is not designed around a specific taillight set. If you're handy with fibreglass, you could flush-mount anything you want. Remember, this is still a kit car. You build it your way.

The ones we're using are pretty close to flush, they only stick out about 1/8" or so.

You can look at the wrangler tail conversion lights. Very common mod actually. I've seen them almost flush.

Yeah, the lights on my boat trailer are more interesting than those.






EDIT: What Keith is offering is better.

4" round taillights are an industry standard for trailers and trucks, including the grommet mounts used in the above picture. The Wrangler guys are just using them because they're readily available, there's nothing Wrangler-specific about them. We're going to use a flange mount for ours because it gives a bit more leeway for a slightly funky hole cut.

The newest rendering wasn't really intended to showcase the taillights, but that's what everyone's latched on to. Pity, as it's both inaccurate (for us) and not really the point.

I received the latest FM catalog yesterday and noticed that this pic is wrong. The rear 'diagonals' where the optional wing mounts attach should be silver.

Good catch. I'll fix that on our site and flog the fellow who did the rendering.

Actually, they should be silver. Those tubes are on all the frame variations. Unless there's a change in spec with the Race kit, let me confirm.

Rollers!

Flyin' Miata : Exocet kits : Rollers


Basically, we'll take a Miata, strip it down for you, install the drivetrain and suspension in the chassis, and hand it over to you. We've done the messy heavy lifting, and you get to do the detail work. This detail work takes a while, which means it's expensive to pay someone else to do it. But you won't need any special tools - and more importantly, you won't need space for three cars as you tear one apart, pile it up and build another.


Prices depend on the specs, but a fairly typical one will run $15,000 plus the powdercoat cost. That includes the Exocet Sport kit, a good donor (we're using a 1999 as an example), shipping to the FM shop plus all the labor to tear everything apart and build the roller. We'll pack all the bits you'll need to finish the job in the frame.

The price is for stock everything. If you want to upgrade the suspension, brakes, radiator, etc then it's easy to do. We can also do a clutch change or maintenance on the engine while the whole thing's apart.

Well right was just saying if someone wants flush tails, check out how they do it.

Hopefully no one noticed the pedalbox isn't in that render, either...whoops.

Yeah, the rear downtubes are exactly the same for the Base, Sport, and Race. 1.75" x 0.095" high-elongation-spec DOM.
