Default Painted some stuff; Roll-Bar; Bikini-Top

Wet Sanded and polished my tails so no more annoying raised letters.
Painted windshield frame, mirrors, side skirts(not yet installed), and plate panel(also did some sharpie art). Roll Bar is mid install and soft top is out; Going to make it into a bikini-top. Also center console is getting deleted; and going to do the shifter boot rebuild. Also did seat foamectomy.

Thanks Man! I like it. From a cars length away it just looks pretty much black, but up close you notice the design. I am still working on the other stuff. Ordered roll bar padding; ordered the replacement shift boot kit, and going to make a console delete. I bought a sewing machine to use to make the bikini top. I haven't decided if If Im going to use the original soft top material or get something different. Oh I also peeled off the red plasti dip from the wheels. Liked the red but after 1 season they were looking dirty and faded already. But was super easy to just peel it off. Thinking maybe doing them Bronze or might just leave them the original silver finish. Will update as I get stuff done.

The red is too flashy, unless its for an RC car. Its your car, high visibility yellow, camo, whatever makes you happy.

I kind of like the rear panel, but its one of those things that you cant stop. Either you go full on nice design or nothing at all. Reminds me of those people who want to have a tattoo but have a 1/2 x 1/2 little flower or heart...

I kindof like the rear panel...only because I used to have a Planet X Jack Flash as an Urban Trials bike

you hate the panel but think the red/pink side mirrors, chin spoiler pinstripe, and wheels look okay?

Aside from the tail light refinish this looks awful.

Umm Its a Miata; Its basically a RC car. Considering its my third car and only gets driven in summer; on sunny days and at Auto-X events. And yes it makes me happy.


Yeah; your comment makes no sense. Its an original hand drawn design; Im no artist but I think it looks pretty cool.

I see no pink. Also If you spent all of 15 seconds to read my post you would see the mirrors and wheels are no longer red.

Fixed that for ya... Like I said lots of work currently taking place.

Feel free to hate on my Sub-$2000 Miata. Car is basically for ***** and to have something to work on while I'm bored and to Hoon with in the summer.

This is how she sat last summer; (looks pretty badass FYI) Will update with this seasons look when she is ready.
