Default Any western NC people around me?

Hi,
I'm new to the board and just got my 90 turbo miata this week. Looking for someone around the Shelby, NC area to talk to, get advice and any tech tips I can. I've got a couple issues with my setup and would really like some advice from some people who have already been there done that. Hope to hear from you guys soon. Thanks, Richard G.

Richard, I'm not from NC but I would appreciate it if you could post some more pics of your car so I can see it better.

I've got a 96 Montego Blue and I'm waiting on the Racing Beat Type II nose and side skirts I just bought therefore I'd like to see how both those items look on your car.

Thanks

Larry, many thanks. BTW, nice car!

Let me ask you; your wife's car doesn't have the back Racing Beat bumper, right? I'm just trying to decide whether I'm going to need to order it too.

Your right, no back bumper. I have an issue with fiberglass bumpers and having one in the front is bad enough. I just had no interest in the rear being glass and the front end and the hood made her happy. This car was a rescue project for us and if you saw the original condition of the car in 1998 when we got it you would have been shocked. It didn't have a panel that matched in color since the car had been painted a few times in the past. It has a very interesting history and we are the 3rd owners and did a complete repaint after the body kit went on.

Many thanks; btw, is that a 914/6 behind your wife's car in the first pic? (I drove one of those many, many years ago and I found it very satisfying).
