right away, oil change (year old), repaint, and rust.

Re: buster, the ol' hoodride

Fix. Trunk. Yesterday.

Seriously. Even if you paint it purple like the wheels. You don't want to be in the VW kiddie circle for real, do you?

P.S. where'd you get that purple paint?

nah. just wanted to make mike burroughs proud. but seriously, nah. i wanted rust

im sorry but a 2 seater convertible miata can never be a hoodride.
i think its what you make it. most people would say it could never be a masuline car. i could really care less what anyone has to say, and i mean that in the most un-douche way possible

I'm not sure how I feel on the rust. I kinda dig it, but at the same time I prefer the clean look. Other then that your car is shaping up quite nicely!

Ps- nice avatar. Dumb and dumber ftw!

Re: buster, the ol' hoodride

i think cutting and rewelding new rear quarters is too much work man. never done it, but i've heard its a PITA. just remove the rust and get it cleaned up. no need for new quarters IMO.

word. i had talked to a friend who had done it...said you can cut at the pinch welds/seams and its not too bad, but i lean more so to your idea. thats always what ive seen as the right way to do it. plus, its flat black...cut, weld, and spray. shouldnt be too bad

you dont know **** about rust do you haha.. to remove it he's gonna need to cut out that metal.. and when he does that he's gonna need to weld in new quarters, or metal shaped for that area.
