well... I now have a car to go with my parts. Picked it up on Monday and this is how it sits tonight (after a 3$ car wash). Still needs some work to pass saftey but overall I'm happy with what I've got and I think it will make a great base for future modification.
Long live the summer!
Suspension will hopefully be in this weekend for a bit of a drop... don't know how low I will go as the roads here are pretty brutal.
not much over an hour. i bought the brace with a local miata club and one of the members had an install day. Mine was the third car in line and by that time we had a pretty good system going... and having a lift really helps. It's the kind of thing that could easily take the whole day if you don't have a lift, air tools and someone that knows what they are doing.
From the condition of the wheels, I'm guessing they are new(ish) models.
The car is currently at the shop for inspection. I talked with the shop guy today and I think everything will be alright. Everything they identified as an issue was something that was on my "to fix" list. Should have the car back on Friday with the new stance and a legal license plate... thinking about taking this picture to them for an idea of the stance I want.
