I like the rest of the paint, even though it's swirl-marked to all hell.

The front bumper needed work for sure. =P~

And no offense, but...... i would have left the wheels as is, black spray painted wheels looks cheesy on a Miata. ](*,)

If you aint got much cash to spare there is a guy in the Tampa club selling his 15" Rota Circuit 8's WITH tires for $199. And they look brand new to me! \:D/

get some gloss black and clear coat on the front if you arent going to do the rest of the car. It just looks odd.

Also the fender isnt hard to take off or at least take out the top half of the bolts and just press that dent out by hand.

other than that the cars coming along quite nicely

agreed. I also like the black wheels, I think they looked cheesier before hand. :mrgreen:

Gah, should I buy a new top to keep the leaks out or new wheels first?

BTW, I'll spray paint those Rotas black too. 8)

That's my project for tomorrow, but I plan on getting a fresh fender before I get the car re-sprayed.. But there's about a 1000 things to do before that.

I really think I need new gaskets, this smoke is really starting to bother me. Plus the back window is ripped so I need a new top.. Then I could use new endlinks.. The dash doesn't light up.. Then I can start getting to performance. I don't think that's too bad for a $1700 car.

I am on the fence about flat blacking it, the paint is all swirlled and scratched but the Montego Blue is so pretty looking.

I feel weird about it.. It's a piece of ****, but it's MY piece of ****. I think it's pretty.

I would reccomend satin black over flat black, that is, if you decide to go that route. It has the flat black look but doesnt look dry or faded like your front bumper. sirnixalot's car looks like a satin black in his sig, unless he just did a clearcoat over flat black.

In FL, they let you paint your car with a spray can in the city park?!
