Yeah, i’m not letting you leave a black painted bowtie on there.  Next time i see you, you’re getting a new old stock black with red stripe 94-98 sport bowtie.

Not quite finished yet. Still have the interior to go through, and some tbi tricks.

And dome lights.

TA DA!!!!!  I guess all your good looks and hard work paid off.  Came out sweet.  Keep the black wheels, it offsets it very nicely. 

Great outcome, in a relatively short period of time.  Nice job, but don't wash your hands too soon, you have a Miata to finish.

Two miatas and a duster, but whos counting?


Fund the dome light issue! Drivers door switch partially dead. Still worked for buzzer, but not lights. And the passengers runs through the drivers. So, im gonna stop after work and grab a switch. God bless simple fixes!

Did you wet sand between layers, or is that just 4 layers of paint sprayed on top of each other? Looks damn good to me.

In reply to maschinenbau :

4 layer sprayed within the respray window. If we had waited for it to hear or we would have had to have wet sanding between coats.

Yeah, and they would probably still be sanding.

I must say, im thoroughly in love with it. Couldn't help but compare this to the elky last night. Its much more truck, and better in every way. I didn't even think twice about the run yesterday, whereas with tbe elky i would have borrowed so.eone elses truck, or just not done it at all.
