Default Mini Photoshoot (warning, will bog high-speed)

My car is no beauty queen, but last night a friend of a friend took a few good pictures of my car, thought I'd share them...

Dude, you need to resize them pics. There's no need for 38x25 unless your printing posters.

Car looks great man!

If you added the R-Package Lips I think it would look alot meaner and really give the car that edge.

Resize then go wet sand those tail lights and side markers. That wax build up on the letters just doesn't cut it. Very easy and makes a big difference in my opinion.

Do people think our cars look good with the lights up? I think they go from fairly aggressive looking (especially when lowered) to fat-chick's-*** ugly when the lights pop up. I say at least you have one picture with them down, but then ******* black car's lights are up in the one where yours are down. Maybe they're broken. And don't use zip ties for hose clamps, cut off the end of any zip ties you do use, get real miata valve cover bolts after you sandblast yours, don't use a 3" dia hose clamp for a 1.5" hose, and don't leave an inch of random cut wires laying around. Other than that, great car.

Hey guys, sorry about the size, I didn't even notice. You are right, that is just not necessary.

@Curly, I think that the car looks a lot better with the lights up. In fact, if I didn't I would have gone with a 99+. I love the old-school look that it gives the car. As for the sub par engine bay... I really didn't mean to post that one, it really isn't my style to have my **** looking like that. The fact of the matter is, I was in a hurry with this project... I am already back in Afghanistan. Even cutting corners I still only had about 3 solid days to drive it. When I get back, I can assure you that the engine bay will be looking a lot better. As for body work... meh. Also, call me a n00b, but wtf do you mean "real miata valve cover bolts"? I really do appreciate the constructive criticism

@viperormiata, Thanks! I have been looking to get the R-Package F+R lips, but no luck finding them at a decent price.

@tyson87, yea I really like the spark plug wire one as well. I like how the valve cover kinda has that gritty look.
