I can't believe the thread made it to page three before you showed up! Everything you've complained about was explained earlier but why bother reading a whole three pages. I love that you still find it necessary to call me a noob after reading a two page explanation of how and why I'm a noob. Let's keep it fun in here or I'm the **** out.

Nice build and good intro. The only thing I see that you missed is the 6UL vs TRM wheel thread.
Thanks a lot. I tried to hold out for the 6ul's but I missed the boat on that one. I think they were still a few months away from shipping when I finished up the project. I'll find a way to justify them in the future haha. Bronze 15x9 and I'm happy.

BEGI actually made the piece. I can get you better photo's with measurement's if you need.

I think the out-cry is having an effect on me. I won't be using the Miata as a DD this winter. I'm running new brake lines this weekend on the truck and that should keep the Miata safe.

Thank you. Saving a Miata is a Christmas gift to all humanity.

MiataKeith - Consider using the multiquote function.

Glad to hear you'll be keeping the car out of the salt most of the time.
