Talking Miata is home finaly

Well here are the long over due photos of my 90 Miata in Stormy Blue Mica. Picked it up from the paint shop this after noon, again, and took some quick snaps.

I like the Runabout mirrors on the car, they fit well with the AWD gauge faces, and GV rear panel. Don't know what people are talking about, with poor visibility, I have seen much worse.

Looks good. What kept you from doing the lip too?

gives the car a lower apearance. You can't tell from the photos, but I kept the satin black bottom that the NAs had too.

Looks good man!

Two good reasons to not paint the lip (as I found out) are that it will highlight any cracks or missing pieces (maybe not with the darker color) and it makes the front heavier visually than the sides if the rockers aren't matched.

BTW, if you make your car look like this quick chop, you too can be a proud member of the shattered-but-at-least-it's-authentic GV lip club.

Great finish! Now it needs to be lowered, black Katzkin leather seats, a Nardi steering wheel and maybe replace that ugly antenna and it would be perfect.

Momo Retro with NRG hubs.
Tein Flex
Hard Dog DD
Low profile headlights
S2000 antenna

most likely in that order

Looks great.

I'd move the HDDD to number two on the priority list. In SS...

Looks fantastic. Best looking 4wd Miata I've seen. Is that a suspension or body lift kit you used? ;-)

Amazing how stock ride heights look so funky to me now.
