That really isn't bad at all considering. Its strange how it removed all the shinyness out of your paint!?

That cool matt job sure will make the paint matching easy.

lol...little bit.


Anybody know the average price I should pay for a bumper cover...(planetmiata has them for $125...but then you gotta pay shipping) I know the finish panel is going to cost me at LEAST $200 bucks...new taillight about $30... or so.. (assuming thats all I need, should be able to pull the support out the 1" right?)

I went to like 6 or so body shops and they all quoted me around $3000 so I just bought another miata which has been in progress for a year now. I dont think I'll ever finish it. If I could go back, I just would have gottin the blue one fixed but oh well, what can you do.

Well...I think this might be the reason the car wrecked...I bottomed it out last week HARD...and I realized that the car wasn't performing the best...so this might be it.

I drove it home from school...put her up on jackstands and found this. I guess it is down until I can swap in a new rear end...I'd like to find a torsen or maybe I'll check out some more info on the TII...but I think thats overkill for my needs...little help sourcing parts guys?

Try this guy. www.panicmotorsports.com He managed a salvaged yard for like 10 years and this year has gone into the miata parts busines for himself. He's located in Columbia, SC. so maybe you could drive there. He races specmiatas and is very easy to work with. name is Steve Bertock. Tell him I sent you.
