Default Curly's 1993 turbo'ed miata race car ...ish

Alright, here be my miata.

Excuses:

1. Yes I know the paint sucks, it's a race car.
2. Yes I know the bumpers falling off, I'm pulling a snowboarder and leaving it partially unbolted so it's easy to remove.
3. Sorry about the dirty interior, it's just starting to get nice out, and wet feet+rain+gravel driveway make it impossible to keep the car clean.
4. Also I'm sorry for the cr.net stretched tire treatment, they were free and had good tread, R888's are in the shed waiting for my next track day.
5. 4x4 look comes from taller 225-50 tires requiring spacers. With the R888's and these, it's apparent I need to face a little off of them.
6. Last but not least, I know I'm a horrible photographer with only an iphone and a digital camera that doesn't know the meaning of too much flash.

My photography skills don't do the engine bay justice. It's fairly clean to say the least. Enjoy.

I know, very poor judgment on my part and I regret it. The sponsors will be coming off too. He got me a lot of parts for cheap, but hasn't done anything else since, so I don't feel bad removing them. I guess the rest is just a lot of work I'm not looking forward too, and some of them are covering up bad paint I don't want to peal off. We'll see.

Right attitude would be "Here's my crappy pictures bitches! Enjoy."

How many grams have you shaved off the car lately?

Well that bastard 18psi just made me shave 4 stickers worth of weight. Honestly it's gained pounds lately. Center console, heater line so it'll warm up on the street, passenger seat, 20+ pounds of tools in the trunk, etc. Enough to make me sad, but at least I can enjoy it on the street.

I'm leaving GRM and MT.net stickers on both fenders. I hope 18psi will approve.

Thanks, if you'd like more pictures, ask, I'll take them for ya. I feel bad for not being able to make you that switch panel, but it's impossible to steal even scrap material from work these days, so an aluminum panel that big is hard to sneak by, let alone tie up one of our CNC machines to drill it. Get back to me in a few weeks if you're willing to send me a piece of aluminum and I'll be able to do it at home, I'm quitting and my last day is next Friday, so I'll have some time and need the money

Next up is stripping what little is left out, masking, and painting the entire thing flat black like the floor panels.
