Hey guys, I'm Erik, I'm 18 and from Northern Cali. I bought my Miata last year in late September, before that I owned this Integra:

It was fun, but I eventually got tired of FWD and Automatic... so I sold it and in the same day bought what I had my eyes on, this trackday 1991 Miata from a guy in my town:

It came with Tokico struts, H&R springs, 15x8 6ULS w/ 225/45/15 Hankook Ventus RS2's, Autopower rollbar, cheap intake, Roadster Sport axleback exhaust, removes P/S + A/C, and a few more goodies..



Since the day I bought it, I have been working on it, making it suitable to my tastes. And I must say I've changed my mind on some things I've done. For example, I painted them black...

Realized it looked pretty bad, so

I painted them white.

Did the Home Depot side splitters.

Re: erikonetime's NA BRG Miata DD Buildup!

Got sick of the off-green cluster lights, so took that apart

After a few hours, got this result:

Wanted red but is a little orangey, still like it!

Got some Raceland headers



Changin' colors ;)



Starting of a somewhat shaved engine bay


Don't need this till my next smog check



Shaved down some seams, moved my fusebox back a little, taped off some stuff. rattle canned for now.



Ehh... Once I wiretuck, I'll respray/clear coat..



Sadly, I didn't like the way the Roadster Sport Axleback sounded...I feel like a baffling blew out. So I pulled it off and sold it.



Aaaaand all new piping for $100 by my buddy Scott at Minute Muffler. Don't judge, it sounds deeper and I actually like the look of it :p

Exhaust looks pretty sweet. I like that it's one piece back to cat too. Reminds me of the exhaust I had on my NA.

The car used to be white, then was Maaco painted (I'm guessing) by the previous owner. Door jams are even white lol. What would you call this color? Forest green? In person it looks like a ripoff of BRG

I liked the car better when you first bought it. Silver wheels, no decals, no cheap skirts, and no electrical tape on the headlights... electrical tape? .. come on, lol

It's closer to Montego blue. Looks good though. If I were you, I'd get somepaint and to the door jambs, engine bay, and trunk.

nice miata! looks like the steering wheel is still the typical honda guy steering wheel though haha. You should get a deep dish style steering wheel. That one looks like one of those cheap ebay ones.
