I actually don't think that is too bad. The body kit is the same color as the rest of the car.

Nice Sil80!

I was a ricer when I was in HS. Imagine a light blue '91 Civic Standard hatch (78 bhp, 4 spd manual, blue vinyl interior) *slammed* on black steelies, with a 2.5" Greddy catback, short shifter, gutted, etc. Oh yeah, I was too cool

I think I learned my lesson with that car. I bought a B16A for it, but the hood kissed the windshield shortly thereafter so I bought my red '90 CRX Si, which was pristine. It got the B16A, the short shifter, the suspension, exhaust, carbon hood, etc. It was really nice, just wrong-wheel-drive. I had that up until I bought the miata.

I'm still kinda ricey with the miata IMHO, what with the lip, intercooler, etc. Just higher-class rice.

the FG fenders and bumper followed an accident where i needed both fenders and the bumper replaced, it was way cheaper than going OEM...at least at the time...

My last car was a 1991 Nissan 240sx with 181K and the only thing I really riced it out with was a pair of bright red 4pt harnesses and then took out the back seat for less weight. That thing was pretty fast, but handles nothing like a miata.

Never really riced out a car, but I was guilty of thinking my Dodge Dart was a lot faster than it really was.
