I have seen pictures of the molds. They have the upper front fender mounting flange integrated. I believe Boig cut those off for his tube framed car.

The Boig / Gibb was the proper GT3 car, mostly tube frame IIRC.
I'm not worried about mounting the fenders to the OGK, we can definitely work with any type of mounting arrangement they come with or not..

It's been a L-o-n-g time since I dug into that memory, but I want to say the Boig / Gibb car was the first NB GT3 car, but was not the first time a GT3 Miata was built.
I believe that one was the Team Tambourine NA which digging deep into my Gray cell area I recall the car had the wheel base extended to 91" and a 13B swap.
That car actually qualified and ran the 24hrs of Daytona back in 2000 or 2001, I remember it had twin dry break filler in the back and a few other cool bits...

AFAIK there were only a handful, maybe 3-4 purpose built GT3 cars ever built. The others were full tub EP cars with a few extra bits, not true GT3 cars. One of the reasons the knowledge base for super high output N/A BP's is so thin. The few guys that know aren't on forums and wouldn't share anyway. Yah, Boig's car looks to be 85% tube frame by the pics. Charles *** and a few others built GT3 cars that were mostly full tubs.
This is the pinterest image of the cleco stage of Boigs build that started my search:

I can't decide which is hotter, the intake or exhaust side.

Most of us that have been around race Miatas for a while knew about the car but it has been out of the public eye for a long time. I have pictures on my hard drive of that car that are 7 years old. What I didn't know was who made the fenders thus the connection in this thread for ogk.
