I had a similar smallish crunch in my fender. My fault. I worked out 98% of it by hand. I used the rounded end of a screwdriver handle and massaged the metal back into shape from inside the fender well. No cracked paint, no bondo. If I didn't point it out you wouldn't ever no it was there. Our fenders are thin and easy to work with. Take your time, go nice and easy and see what you can do. You can't make it worse!

I like the Kosie's. Not sure about the off color headlamp cover.

lol no i honestly was in a hurry to get it done, shouldn't have been, but I was. So I stuck with black and clear coat, at the time I was tight on cash and i couldn't even afford silver paint, plus it only cost like 10$ to make + dremel and time of corse!

And as far as the stance i know i've already lowered it with the msm coils but you're right danscreation's blue miata is what i really want then again i would need tien coilovers....

and as for the headlight cover intake i did it all on my own ^ like i said but my filter is right behind there so fresh air!!!
