Default dad > me @ taking pics

So I asked my dad if he'd take some pics of the Miata as long as he's babysitting it, and he did, so I thought I'd share. They're way better than any pics I've taken of it.

Man, I don't really know why, but your car looks GOOD.

Looks great. Only thing I would do is paint the rockers red. How about some engine and interior shots? Looks like you have red door panels.

How can you have a lip at that ride height? I mocked up an R lip with cardboard and tried some driveways and it scraped everywhere. Do you live in a dream world where it's all flat?

Good looking car. Just needs painted rockers.

I second that.....with the lip being painted, the rockers painted body color will balance the look of the car.

Thanks for all the kind words!

I think this is the latest engine shot:

I don't really have any current interior shots, there's not a whole lot going on in there anyway. I recovered the upper doors and dash pads with red vinyl (like the LE) and the bottom half is denim w/ no armrest. Momo champion wheel and AWD gauges, and boost and WB02 in the middle AC vents.

Seems painting the rockers is highly recommended, I'll consider it. I don't like the idea of the rear skirt though.

Damn. Not a big fan of red Miatas but that looks hot.

I kinda like the black rockers. Gives it contrast and paint down there gets chipped easily.

For comparison....black rockers w/o lip - body line seems balanced.
With front lip painted and black rockers, car looks to be front heavy.

Seriously, I was on the fence about the k1s but this sorta seals it. What color are those (can't tell if they're the white or the gray, thinking gray). Also, what size are those?

I like the black rockers but after the comments I went back a looked again. I would paint the lip black before I would paint the rockers, especially on a lowered car. Stock height all red helps "lower" it but on yours, black with a black lip would be ****.

Super nice looking car, though. Props to dad for taking it out and shooting it for you. Pics came out well.
