I've been driving the miata around even though the exhaust leaks are giving me throat cancer and the driver side window is still fucked up. But none the less the car is still awesome to drive and I'm happy to be back in it.

On a side note, what a difference from hardtop to no hardtop. Jesus christ it feels like I lost 50% of the stability in the car. Amazing difference the hardtop makes.

Rainy pictures are from yesterday. The car was just sitting in the driveway but I was waiting for tv delivery guys to come so I took some shots.

Sunny pictures are from today. Took the hardtop off and did what I had to do for work and then took a hour long cruise.

What rear spoiler is that? I picked one up just like it cheap but there is no name on it.

Glad you posted those pics! I'm trying to decide if it will look right on my car or not.

Thanks guys!

What must be nice? Taking a cruise!>? Today was my first drive in the miata with the top down in probably going on 2 years now!

Cueball- The spoiler is a Bomex piece. They are pretty rare. I've seen maybe a handful around, that includes the couple I've seen from Europe and Japan.

I like the looks of it. If I ever change anything on the rear of the car it'll be the rear bumper. Hopefully when I paint the exhaust flat black it'll look better back there.

Looks good, I too like the hood and light combo. I know many like the barndoors, which look nice down, but they are so fugly when up.

You know what would look nice on that car, a set of intake turn signals and matte black gas cap. Odd, Im about to post a set for sale in the next week.

Thanks dude! I got a lot of looks today. When the hardtop is on and the windows are up I dont really notice. But when the top is down, forget about it. I feel like I'm on a ******* stage or something. Usually I dont like all the attention, but after not really enjoying the car in a LONG time, it was nice today to get so many waves and thumbs ups.

The front bumper is a Bomex, and the headlights are made by a company called AAC. They are carbon fiber buckets, but I had them painted black. Same with the hood. I had to hide that cf to cut down the number of tickets I'll get! lol

Thanks Steve! The hood and headlight area is my favorite part of the car. I like the hood for the fact that its functional, and the headlights cause they are different.

Once I had the parts on the car and I saw the color combo between the blue and cf, I knew I wanted to paint them both black and do a black/blue theme. When the car was all blue it was too much. Like a ******* giant M&M going down the road. lol

I have a set of the TSI's already. I like them, but I think I like the smoked OEM lenses better. In my sig pic you can see the car with the TSI's in. As far as the black gas lid goes, I'm not sure what I think about that. I would have to see it photoshopped to get an idea.

I could'nt agree more. Its funny you said this....I was thinking the same thing as I was driving today, only about how much rigidity was added with the hardtop...btw, your car looks GREAT, it certainly puts mine to shame

This morning I had the hardtop on and it really behaves like a completely different car. I would have to say that adding a hardtop is probably one of the first things I should have done when I got the car.

Thanks for the props dude.
