I have to install my coolant reroute, once that is done I should be in like sin (and will also be going to the car show). Are we all going to the show or entering our cars into it, is it a pay to be in it, and does it matter that my car is kinda beat and the colors don't match up? I will go but don't really think entering my car would be a good thing. I second the black top and black windshield surround. Perhaps some satin black?

I was thinking about entering it but then again my car is not show quality either but what ever. I figured we all went up together like a gay miata group, and if if doing to top black it would be matte finish

it doesnt matter if your car is show or not. we care more about performance than appearance at our show. anyone can enter. Id love to see a group of 5 or so turboed miatas enter.

I'm good to go!

Car is back on the road and I already plan on going this year.

On a side note. Nick, those paint guns I was talking about aren't worth it. They are just some random guns he had left. He has no info on them and they have no markings/castings on them. Looks like junk.

If you decide you want a shop to spray it for you, let me know and I'll get you in touch with my bodyshop guy.

Joe no big deal, I bought a paint gun of eBay for $20 lol. I wish I had the money for a nice paint job but I really don't. I'm gonna try and make it the best I can DIY

That is 4 weekends to work with. Unless we want to push it further back or forward. I have Saturday + Sunday listed but it doesn't have to be 2 days. Personally I'd like to do it on a Saturday. I can drive out Friday, sleep in a hotel, have all Saturday and depending on how I feel drive back Saturday night or Sunday.
So after this post we narrowed it down to not include the first weekend (apr 24-25). What is everybody elses thoughts about the other weekends? Anybody have any ideas on where to meet up? Maybe we can meet for food then drive...I would love to go to pepe's pizza but I don't know if I would be able to get into the parkign lot.
