Default mk iv supra headlights on a miata?

So a few years back i remember someone doing some crazy stuff with their miata, they had one lambo door and one suicide door, and it also had supra headlights. It was a custom chameleon paintjob i believe. Has anyone seen this car floating on the net? also, has anyone on the board ever fabricated supra headlights onto the miata?
this is my car getting trailered for dyno tuning... the front clip all the way up to the back of the front wheel reminded me of the mk iv supra... or i could just be crazy.

I see FAAARRRR more FD in the front end of our cars than I could ever imagine seeing MK IV Supra in them

Just Kidding.

Some decent work appears to have gone into it. Look at the blue...thingy on the front and hood, it looks like it is below the paint which is good. Th panel gaps seem to be on, though it is hard to tell.

But its just in such poor taste. And not in a "I'm holding my nose up because its not BRG with a effing Nardi steering ****" way. Its bad taste in a "holy smokes what kind of color choice is that for the seats and why are the doors reversed and who desinged that wing!?!?!11/2?!" sort of way.

If the nose did not have the Subaru-esqe huge fog lamps and was a bit more in keeping with the lines of the car and if it skipped the lame Z3 vents and martian wing and if it had seats that matched the paint or were just black and the doors were normal, it would not be so bad.
