Ahh... I miss my days on the Gap. That road was one of the best things about living in Ohio. Only 6 hour drive to pure motoring bliss.

2003 Sinshen blue door panel inserts (not pictured)

OMFG, the GV bumper is nice! I saw on the GV site that there were foglights on their 01+ bumpers, little did I know that when they made the bumper, they actually mold in provisions for the OEM foglights!!! Sure i could use them for brake ducts.. but the fogs look way better on a DD car then 2 big holes. The MSM headlight also make things look a bit more sleek. Now i just replace the baby-teeth with a Mazdacomp tow-hook.




More pics to come tonight.....

For starters, don't use the flash on the camera! Light it with some light sources off to the side of the camera positioned so that they do not create a glare. Also use a tripod so you can use a slower shutter speed without blurring the image.

I have that bumper sitting on the floor in my basement. When I purchase my 2000SE it came with the stock stuff, and a complete garage vary kit



I love the gap.. Trying to decide if I want to take my bike (2002 R6) or Miata this year

Why does that bumper look positively hideous, and the silver one looks good? I could almost go for the silver one. I want more inlet area, and I wouldn't bitch about a place to put driving lights. It IS a little flashy though.

I still want to get a bigger IC. The 'little' one from FM is bugging me!
