We're not really an appearance/style group here, but I must say, you're pretty darn good with that airbrush.

Incidentally, during deployments, the corrosion control boys come out with their rattlecans and spray all the fastener heads with different, mismatched flat grays. The other thing that happens is that ground crew walk all over the wings and top of the fuselage with boots covered in grease and hydraulic fluid, so you end up with lots of footprints.

The one thing you really need is a Bureau Number. An old F-4 would probably have a 15#### number. Were USMC F-4 squadrons VMF or VMFA? I know they are all VMFA now with Hornets.

I was in VFA-83 (Rampagers/Saratoga).

I like it. Except the stance. That's just stupid, and the look is soooooo copycat of every other stanced stupid miata on this planet. You have a good unique thing going for the looks of it. But the stance kills it.

Now swap in an LS powered V8, with a turbo and make it act as cool as it looks.

I don't know about those license plates man, looks like a ton of added weight for no reason. You need to make this thing powerful, because stock 1.6 is fail-aids.

Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you are here. Thank you for sharing pictures of your tribute car.

Now we need to get you turbocharged and make real fire come out of that exhaust.

good thing is, when he destroys the next fender figure skating, he can just bolt license plates back up and call it art.

Seems I also forgot the much needed quick release hub/racing steering wheel combination. Gotta have one of those for hardparking.

I'm ashamed that I think he did a pretty good job. the exhaust is pretty gross to me but I kind of like the rest. I feel dirty.

With that said. I'd never ever, ever, ever, ever, own or drive that. If I did it would need a turbo charged LS w/ 1200hp to make up for it's jdm tightness. I think i'd still be ashamed to drive it though. I'm also not 20 anymore and Wake up at 5am every morning and go to bed by 11 at the latest. M-F workin da grind babeh!

On a second look. If it was turboed and didn't have the plates on it and was a little less hella cool I would drive it around in public.

Which ones have postprocessing??? or do they ALL have postprocessing? Not trolling at all, I legitimately want to learn how to spot that out. haha
I tried looking closely, but cant seem to find any indicators

We do suspension and racing too! No slamming though.

Don't mind the haters. And if you're serious about doing a turbo, I recommend thick skin and sticking around. You're a Viking descendant after all. There is a wealth of knowledge here and the poking is part of the fun.
