If you cannot open the first links to the pictures, then here is a photo album of it. I'm not sure if MSN makes you sign up or in for this but it doesn't hurt!
Then you can also create your own albums within that specific group if you wish - Kinda like a MIATATURBO GANG ALBUM just for all of us!

kinda the same here. i kinda don't mind having it beat up though, because that means i don't have to worry about other people banging it up.

if you pay careful attention, you'll notice that all pictures of my car (that i've posted) are from the passenger side.

here's the only one i could find of my car in all it's glory, bad front bumper and banged up fender. nevermind the dork working on the fender lining (me).

Default Replacement Door & Fender now on.

Well, got the major parts today around 2 p.m. The door was painted half black at the cut line, so I had to sand that coat off. Then I swung the door on and started to attach the new front fender. Got that on and had to disconnect the front bumper four times due to forgetting things that weren't right up front.
Finally got it all attached and lowered the lights and hood to find that I have a huge gap towards the front of the fender. Tomorrow is a new day and maybe I will have time to disconnect it all again and realign it. Then I have to replace all of the stuff from my original door to the replacement door. All in all, it doesn't look too bad.

PICTURES of on the mend!

Well -
I think that I've decided to paint LOLA myself. One shop I went to wanted $1900 to paint her & that was "NOT" a "TOTAL REPAINT" .
When I get down to the nitty gritty of it, I will take Pictures of it as I go so everyone might be able to see the improvement. I've spent about a week reading up on it & gathering up the information that I need to perform a total repaint on her.
This way I can do it right & have a Double Base Coat & Triple Clear Coat on her. Most Miatas don't have the two stage system that LOLA has, and I want to do it again to make her look like a new girl!

Wish me Luck Guys,
Michael & LOLA

Well, LOLA is almost completely ready for her new RED FACELIFT. All of the paint is here and I tested the paint and clearcoat on the trunk lid today. It is brighter than the old setup I had on her. I might rip off the bumper covers and do them first because that will be the most tedious part.
All in all, I think that she will look pretty ****** good when I'm done with it. I've spent under a thousand $'s on all of the goodies to get her fixed up. It's still cheaper than having a shop do it the way I would like it done.
I'll shoot some pics of her this week again so you can see the progress.....
I love the Base Coat - Clear Coat (2 stage) paint job. Nice and deep Candy look to it..........

Can't wait to see the results. I need a paint job bad. I wax the thing 2 a month. The bumper covers, finish panel and mirrors fade to a pale red, as soon as the wax hits it the are shinny like new again, but it only lasts a short while.

Default And one more!

The Gray Stuff in the pictures is obviously Primer. I had to apply a new CHIP GUARD underneath it all because of the new/used door and the New Frint Fender.

Lucky you're in Florida; don't need to get it finished before the cold weather sets in.

I'm in the process of picking up a white '90 to play with. Going to try that cheap paint thing that Philip posted after I blow off the rest of the white with a powerwasher.:gay:

Keep the primer color, add APC stickers and flames. Now your talking performance!
