Default Installed Garage Vary front lip on my NB 2001.

Ive had my NB Miata now for 11 days, and this is the first major mod Ive done to it.

Installed Garage Vary front lip !



Fitment is great, I spent more time removing the factory bumper than it took to install the front lip!

Bought it from the guys over at Rspeed.net, I originally ordered the 99-00 lip on accident and they took good care of me! Fast delivery too.

Its really changed the look. I couldnt stand how the factory bumper just rolled over on the bottom. Needed something more aggresive.

Parts that Ive ordered that are in route to me now

- BC coilovers to replace tein springs and factory shocks
- Replacement latch for passenger side soft top
- New shift **** boot
- Shark antenna
- Spare, jack, tools, carpet since all the factory stuff was removed by previous owner and not put back in

Next -
remove wheels and powdercoat gray
remove turbo manifold, repair cracks and ceramic powdercoat

This cars been turbocharged for several years now.

It has a AVO turbo kit on it, runs 8-10 psi with the LINK piggyback.

If you look about 8 inches above the Garage Vary front lip you can see the intercooler.
