I really don't like how high the miataroadster vents are, and I don't really care about my sticker placement that much...
I will buy them from you Deezums.
PM inbound.

I have a set of these I bought from a classifieds add a while back, I really need to get around to installing them. I'm glad to see you guys pushed ahead with the DIY, I think they look great.

Also, $30 for a single, $56 for a pair in Lexan from Advance Autosports (I believe these are the ones I bought used)

Haha

Unless I find someone else to waterjet cut lexan I think those would be the way to go. I don't like that forward placement of the vent though...

And if you are watching humming, this is why you can't expect such a large cut for doing nothing.

I got my MKturbo and miataturbo.net banner stickers free with purchase of diff, I don't even have MKturbo setup, well I do, but not

I too much prefer the banner sticker to the turbokitty, so I traced them as well. I can engrave miataturbo.net in your windows if you like, or other erotic things....



Who has vinyl plotter, lol

I have a vinyl plotter.
I can make stickers, but I'll need permission from those in charge before I start cutting.

I got a patent on the process of cutting a vinyl sticker in the shape of the miatatubo.net logo, so I am in charge and want royalties.

I was talking about my wife... the one who is in charge.
She never lets me play with the sharp objects.

I gave you a price, you didn't like it, no need to get personal. Order from someone else if my prices are so out of whack with everything else out there, which is what you said you were going to do.

ban me for my non-approved vendor status now, I guess?

Figured I'd share this here, cheaper than the ebay seller. $16/pair plus $5ish shipping.

That's right, I do actually own a miata.

The vents went in pretty easy, and they don't feel overly tight in the hole, so I'm not too worried about cracking at the cup.
They do flex a good amount though, but that can't really be helped.
