Nice bumper, just needs some paint. Do you know where you are going to get it done? I am not sure what manifold it is, I bought it off somebody. He said it is a racing mazda manifold but when I looked it up they looked different...

I like it, I need a nice mani like that. I'm gonna get it painted at Nicks auto shop in my house lol, I rather do it my self and save some money and gain some experience. Specially since I wanna paint my whole car soon.

I feel like a fuckface! I haven't touched the miata in weeks.

I really hope I take some time soon to get it together.

Ohh yeah, and **** everyone that's driving around now in this nice weather! Everyone that lives down south or out west in year round nice weather can **** off by default. lol

You have the setup to lay paint? How may times have you done it? If you need a lackey and I have some time to spare I could throw in a helping hand. I did my car a few years back so I know a scoshie about it. I can't wait for this weekend...should be putting my **** back together. Just need to find a place I can get a nipple from for my mbcv and wastegate signal. Do you guys know of any places? I was thinking maybe a hvac or hydraulic place...

I've never painted before and I don't have a gun but I'm gonna buy a cheap one. I have a compressor and stuff and I had a friend that used to do body work so I used to watch him. I should be able to do it, it's not like it's rocket science. If you wanna give me a hand you could, what part of CT are you from?I go to this hardware store called goodies it's down the street from me right in east haven, they usually have all the little parts that I need.

Over near willimantic, I don't think we have a store like that but I will find out this weekend fo sho! Laying paint isn't hard...just when you put on the clear make sure to have a lot so if you get orange peel you can sand and buff it out. Also when you do the car grounding it will help keep the dust from being attracted to it. Also I recommend a gravity feed gun and a lot of acetone to keep the gun clean. My cheep gun got clogged when I was at the end of doing my car and I couldn't control the air, only the media. It sucked.

More goodies came in, more knuckles busted, more cuss words were imparted on my car, and less space in engine compartment. Still need to do some tweaking and am waiting on the flange for the diverter but this is more or less it.

I said **** it and took the miata out today! First time I drove it in weeks. God it felt great! I never realize how much I miss driving the ****** until days like today.

The window regulator is broken, the door panel is off, the cat is still half assed bolted in and rattling.......but I still enjoyed the **** out of it!

I snapped a shot while I was at the dealership doing some more inventory.
