I felt the stripes were necessary to make the base color come alive. Without the stripes, well..........it's a color from a Honda Accord.

I think its one of the only miatas with a stripes that work, good job.

I also like those e-bay smoked turn signals, I may have to pick some up.

That looks very similar to the color I painted my last NA. Needless to say I love it!

Wow. Ive never liked a striped car before this one. May I inquire how much an excellent job like this put you out of pocket?

got the front coilovers on today. My decision to replace the stock bushings with Energy Suspension Hyperflex bushings is making this whole process take forever. The grease that comes with the bushings is this disgusting sticky stuff, and it gets EVERYWHERE.
