Even though this is going to be a slow ass build, I think I deserve my own topic (IMG:style_emoticons/default/toung.gif)

The day I brought it home:

(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/20160906_195217_zpseck0v49n.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/20160906_195202_zpsjwf7zafi.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/Naamloos-2_zpscsabnfur.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/14203152_10208092297769436_7226532420298336775_n_zpse30vl0pe.jpg)

As you can see, the car is pretty OK but needs some TLC here and there. I took out the ugly ass speaker box between the seats (barely visible on the following pic) and removed the sun visors:

(IMG:https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/14726262_221432101595578_5581125656860688384_n.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/blankingplates_zps10keyzuk.jpg)

And since this week, I have a lip installed!

(IMG:https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/15035600_114922445656109_1124013205018902528_n.jpg)

It's a cheap and s**tty fibreglass lip. In the future I'm going to upgrade to a PU one. I promised myself never to use zipties... But I don't see any other way to attach the lip. This will have to do for now.

Other than that.. These arrived in the mail today:

(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/20161110_201253_zpsjogjk224.jpg)
These will replace the ugly orange blinkers that are on the car now.

Future plans:
-Slowly freshen up the engine, replacing everything I can do myself.
-Lower the car a bit but not too much, kinda "functional" stance.
-New wheels (15x7). Currently on 16x? and they're in rough shape. Smaller wheels also fit the car better imo. I'm thinking Rota/JR Wheels, or something else that's relatively cheap but decent.
-As said, going to replace the front lip for PU ones, and also getting side skirts and a rear lip. Also maybe a ducktail/low spoiler.
-Replace the complete exhaust system.
-Either get the seats fixed or replace them for second hand ones that are in good shape.
-Replace the steering wheel and shift knob.
-Get rid of the wooden trim (it's peeling off and it's not OEM).
-Replace the orange reflectors for white (front) and red (rear) or all white.
-Delete the antenna including the base.

So yeah.. That's it for now. Thanks for reading (IMG:style_emoticons/default/toothygrin.gif)

Yes I did it!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/toothygrin.gif)

Did a few things:

(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/9743.3103793_zpso5hxil1u.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/20161230_211104_zpsoxvzyf9s.jpg)
(IMG:http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu150/S1070/20161231_153048_zpsm62jg9tk.jpg)

Currently the tires rub against the fenders, so I need to roll them.... No one really does that in Holland tho. f**k


Also fitted a stainless steel 4-2-1 exhaust manifold, test pipe and stainless catback system. Just need to replace the manifold gasket, I reused the old one and it's leaking (IMG:style_emoticons/default/toothygrin.gif) So ordering a new one soon. Hopefully this week.

Your interior is nasty. So is my car. Comes with age. Can be repaired or fixed if you find the right source. Never reuse the exhaust manifold gasket. Or any gasket really. The cheap stock ones that is. You can roll the fenders your self. There are how to vids. I like your ride. Rims and side mirrors are a nice touch.

he's already stated that he's doing most of that lol

Denial are you gonna get a hardtop? My biggest issue with the Miata is that it's a convertible (IMG:style_emoticons/default/toung.gif) I'd like them a lot more if they were a swept back or coupe.

It's starting to look great! All you need is some lowering and a body kit and it will look like Kebins photo.

I was thinking about this. Seen this in my new Jegs Catalog. They do international shipping.
DIY fender roller. $99. Good quality, simple.

If that's too pricy. I'm sure you could find a cheaper set up somewhere else on the web.

The only way I'm going to have a hardtop is if I can find a very cheap OEM one (they usually go for 650+, f**k that) or if I can get hold of a fastback one for not too much, similar to the Spoon S2K hardtops. But both of those options aren't very realistic.

Don't worry (IMG:style_emoticons/default/xd.gif) not gonna go for an Aston look. Not sure if I will get any body kit though. First gonna lower it and see what it's like. Thanks btw!

My biggest issue with that is: I have no experience. So I'm probably going to f**k it up. I talked to a mechanic who owns a Miata, he said he's going to buy one of those soon and he's gonna do it on his own cars, once he's a bit experienced he's going to offer it as a service. So I'm going to wait it out a bit.

fell in love with the wheels and they were cheap, didn't even check size tbh (IMG:style_emoticons/default/xd.gif)

But I want to go for an aggressive stance with just a little bit of camber anyways. Car's getting lowered and fenders will be rolled once I can afford those things.

Fender roller is just 50 but I don't know if I trust myself enough to do it

Those are never going to fit properly unless you pull your fenders to kingdom come or get overfenders or run ridiculous amounts of camber. I'd keep your eye out for a new set of wheels and see if you can trade. lol
