Default Allow myself to introduce myself

I'm Kraig Klippel, born and raised in San Jose, CA but moved out to Durham NC for work. I bought my second 1994 Miata (the first one was an R-Package that both seller and I had no idea, so I sold it to an E-Stock guy from Colorado) back in 08. I promptly built it for STS (STS2 at the time) I'm now reducing my Autocross budget and selling off a bunch of things. I'll be keeping the Miata as a Daily driver and looking into my next project. Lots of great info here, love the site.

Welcome! How long have you been in NC? I'm down in Charlotte but maybe I will see you at an autox or track event sometime.

Moved out here in September 2012. I've been to zMAX for Central Carolina SCCA Autox. Here is my car.

Very nice. I've always loved that livery.

It looks as if I will not be coming out to autocross anytime soon as I've decided to retire. This being said, I am entertaining the idea of slapping a turbo on it, but I've got to sell off stuff and pay for bills before I can justify playing with my toys.

That looks awesome. Is it paint or vinyl? or a combination of the 2?

I read the thread preview and I was coming in here to convince you to not build an SSM car. Thankfully I dont have to do that.

Love the 787-ish paint scheme.
Welcome to the forum.

Do you own a cat? Not that one could truly ever own a cat, but do you live with a cat?

Yes, I painted the Atamic Orange, British Racing Green, and the Matalic Black. I then cut out strips of white vinyl for the stripe.

If I were to do it again, I would do the whole thing in vinyl, costs less.

If you have ever done an event in south Georgia, then I have seen this car. If not, then someone else has also done this livery on their miata. Looks good.

Hi Kraig, love the look of your car. I do enjoy auto crossing. I hill climb with the NHA sometimes. Welcome!

I don't think he meant that kind of cat. . . or the vertical stripe kind either.
