Default got my body kit today!!!

why yes, it is an ebay body kit. 99-03 wizdom front end and side skirts and a 99-03 magnum rear lip. I somewhat fitted them on tonight to see that they would all fit right and what they would need to perfect the fit. Im going to have to move my muffler from the unusal left to the factory right, and get it welded lower so I have room for the lip. skirts seem all good. may have to drill a hole in each end to stick under the splash gurards and drill into the bottom of the door jams.. (maybe maybe not). front end...still off right now tbc in the morning. im going to have to take off a buttload including huge plastic bumper reinforcement and the plastic and **** in the factory grill opening. main thing I notice is that the inside corners are going to have to be shaved down. the headlight area was made more so for the 99/00 model I think due to the smaller lights?
overall, I cant wait to get this thing to my body shop at school and get it good. it is going to look sick, google miata wizdom body kit and you will see what I got.

anybody got any installation hints, please and thank you!!

I really hope you meant "I just bought some turbo parts on eBay for my car". If not, please realize that this is a site where performance mods are accepted, not pimp my ride crap. I think you clicked on mt.net by mistake, but you just wanted m.net. "Always bigger in Texas", please don't make our Texas members look bad...that's hustlers job already.

Install tips on a eBay body kit? Yes I do, but I think you'd rather I keep them to myself.

Remember that post where that dude claimed to have like 347 whp with his greddy kit, and then we all made fun of him and he dropped his membership cause he turned into a cry baby? I see where this thread is headed...

Good luck with that body kit... The one thing I've learned over the years is to definitely not cheap out on aftermarket body components.

And your car isn't turbo'd because....?

Because evidently he'd rather spend the money on body kits and exhausts that exit on the left side of the car.

Where I come from, the use of DUCT TAPE and SUPER GLUE maybe of some help. But who am I to say???? I think bailing wire should do the trick. Make sure to check your head light fluid after!!!!!

It definately made me sick just thinking about it....
I hope you're going to put an ebay air intake on it and 18" wheels too, don't forget the less than $100 roll bar (non functional show bar). Then it would look really sick...like Ebola virus sick.

Don't worry, when Hustler heads this you won't need to go to the body shop...he'll give it to you good.
