After riding a motorcycle for several years you get used to it.

I'm toying with the idea of putting MC mirrors on the Miata.

Thoughts on a set of Runabouts? Found a set in pristine condition used in the bay area.

Hell yeah! I love those mirrors. I planned on a set but could never afford them.

Nice color!

Are you shaving things before paint (especially since you have slightly more time now...)?

You know you want to shave emblem holes, antenna hole, squirter holes...

Car is a daily driver LOL, I need that stuff. Will most likely mount an S2000 antenna though, and with the dark color you won't see the sprayers. My car never had a nose badge (90), and I have the GV rear finish panel

A couple update pictures. My car has been pushed back another 2 weeks. Two reasons, first the rear bumper of the car is toast. So we need to file an amendment to the original estimate for either repairs, or replacement. Second, is this body shop takes care of the Monterey County Sheriffs Dept. They had a high speed chase this weekend and smacked 3 Crown Vics. Well they get priority over everyone, plus there was a CHP car getting the final buff out.

Also this weekend I buffed out the turn sigs, side markers, and third brake light. They came out looking pretty good

And I was going to ask why this retard got booted... n/m.

Any other gauge parts to go with the faces? I want the black bezel SOOO much, just can't swing the $250-$300 price for it.

Unfortunately, no. I need to delegate my money, which I am bad with as is. Since the car is now an extra two weeks off, I am thinking it is time to get my new steering wheel
