Default hi from india

hi guys,i happend to come across this intresting site while i was searching for some answers for my electrical issues with my miata. I currently own a stock 1.6,92 model,manual miata, getting the jackson racing body kit,and once im able to fix the niggiling electrical issues and a potential fuel pump faliure i want to throw in a turbo. One of the issues here is that sourcing spares isnt a very easy job,besides technical knowdlege is limited.
will post pics and resto process soon.

C'mon, man, it's not like he said 19s or something, the MSM came stock with 17s..

plus, he's in India! It's probably rare to see a Miata there at all, much less a modded one. 17s would likely = baller status over there.

Wow, a co-worker from india recently visited the states and said they had no miatas there, in fact mine was the first one he had seen.

they must be very rare there.

I like mine with 17's. But it has racing beat lowering springs.
I like the 15's for ride and handling better. But with 17's I feel like "I live the quarter mile 10 sec at a time." LOL

Dude get the rims you like. We need pictures. I'm curious as to the differances your car has from ours. I know some of the guys from india around here change the mirrors and a few details to look like they brought them over. It usually involves more chrome, and mirrors on the fenders from what I've seen.

As far as pictures, if it needs work don't worry. Most of us have brought them back from the dead. Fenders, quarter pannels, wrecks, engines, trannys, no tops, and etc etc. I improved and sold 4 or 5 to get my keeper.

If you need a complete harness, I'm sure somone here would probably have or be willing to sell you one.

Good luck.

If your riding on anything other then an elephant over there its considered baller status.

thanks todd, will try and upload pics,my car has chrome mirors and the OE 15" rims which have been chromed as well(i dont like),well,as far as lowering springs go, not a practical option, as some roads arent good,would bottom and scrape everywhere.
any idea where i could get a fuel pump,new or used and how much?? my only issue is that whoever is willing to sell should be willing to courier it to me.will pay for it .
