im ruining my new car... so what!

PostFri Feb 24, 2012 8:53 pm

current little project is to cut big ugly holes into my car in an effort to look as cool as a sema car. [i swear it sounds better in my head]

sizing

and four times a lady

dont worry, its an extra bumper piece today. but since i decided to cut from the front side and not the back side like when i cut up my moms car. i will have to ruin my current bumper eventually.

What about the rollbar, wide fenders, and sticky tires? :)

rollbar is in the que. sitcky tires are already done. 235mm fits in wheel wells so no need for wide fenders!

I say ruin it any way you like. That's the only way it will ever be yours.

I think the only gentlemanly thing to do with it is a 20B-REW swap.

Good Win Racing makes repro fiberglass flares that attach with 3M tape, if you're just after the look.

Are you on any Miata-specific forums? I'm signed up on Miata.net, of course, but it seems like the primary focus of most guys on there is finding new chrome trim rings with which to impress the other guys in the retirement community.

Too bad you aren't in Northern CA. I'm a moderator on the local roadster collective. You're more than welcome though if you care to join up: www.norcalroadsters.com I'm the asshole with no roadster, a moderator account, and more posts than anyone but a couple founding members...

project... 75% done. i still have a few things i would like to change. but all the basic components are now in place.

brackets... after rigging up like this i came to the conclusion that they were far too long... so i had to lob off 1.5" thus running into the slots. i might rebuild them again later. but... this is what they looked like pre-lob

mounted up

grille holes. im going to redo this. should have cut from the inside of the grille instead of the outside. ended up getting a gash in it. but... works for now.

and... tada!

Go on Mazda Roadster! It's where all the cool kids (who left CR) are. Also, we have stickers! You like stickers.

Alternatively, I never check any Miata forums, except to buy and sell shit...hell, it took me effort to get on this one again. I hate you all.
