OK guys this is my new baby its Black 2000 Miata 63k miles,I've had it for 2 and half months now.This car has replaced my Honda del sol wich got stolen last winter.Ive always wanted a miata ,and i think its huge improvement over my del sol(externally wise).I am going to call it Shadow because my del sol was known as Sonic lol.But unfortunately the first night i had my car i left it parked out side and the thiefs stole my rims and left it on the cement on one brick!! :( So I got new rims right away and raised it more,since I am not that crazy about the hella flush look.
So heres the mod list so far

This is how it was when I got it



Ok so now heres some pix in order of some changes i will list mods first

Small Oem skirts
Oem mud guards
eyelids(unknown brand)
retro fitted projectors
yellow lense fogs
Nice sounding dual muffler axelback(unknown brand)

TougeRun ducktail(on its way)
interior:
Style bar
Crow racing belt harness(purple)

Suspension:
Starke's full coilover dampers

with red reflective rim stripe

without rim tape

Okay so heres the home depot side skirts thing on the driver side that i put it only on,i didnt do it perfectly cuz i wasnt sure how it would turn out,so as of now its only held on by double tape,its rubber so its not heavy



passenger side


well after that i decided to play with it more made one to the rear hard to see tho


I also tried it on the front spoiler but it didnt come out perfect,i didnt intend it to like i said i was only trying to see how it looked


front will need screws for sure tho i will get back on it tomorrow and see let me know what u guys think so far

Here are more pix and stuff i forgot to show
i added the home depot skirts to the other side also



the belt


this is my car is as of now more updates soon to come
spoiler is on its way wasnt sure if to get the AutoKoxion trunk or just Tougerun spoiler.I honestly wasnt sure if the trunk and body lines of my car werent going to aligned perfectly due to it being hit in the rear before.So didnt want to take that risk and have the AX trunk not sit correctly.I origanlly wanted GV whale tale but didnt see any good pictures and Gv stopped making them.

That style bar is incredibly dangerous in a rollover. Actually caves in on your head. Almost everyone on here will strongly suggest saving for an actual rollbar.

Holy.. that belt setup.. That didn't cross your mind as a good idea did it? Keep the belt but remove it until you get a rollbar, harness bar and fixed back seat that allows for an sub belt with a backing plate on the bottom side of the car. Graded hardware too, please.

LOL at that harness . Think for a moment how that style bar will bend when your body pulls on it forward and smack you right in the head... but then you might like it rough like that.

If you want to be cool at least buckle the sock belt over your mad tight harness.

No no the belt is not for tracking or driving its just there for looks,I still use original belt,and yes I know about style bar,so I dont plan on traking and rolling my car over like an idiot,like I said its my dd,not trak,and I dont drive crazy that will me make me roll over.I have a seat but still waiting for the brackets by wedge,and maybe mount belts to a welded supports or seat brakts and will be looking for a harness bar for sure

No one PLANS on rolling.

Well at least I haven't woke up yet and said "I feel like rolling my car today."

So you wear your stock belt AND the harness? sounds uncomfortable. And you shouldn't be worrying about your driving as far as rolling your miata, it's the other drivers on the road that would most likely cause you to roll on the street. I don't track my NA but I have a hard dog bar just for the peace of mind/extra protection in case I get hit.

Roll.. Bars...?

I usually wear three seatbelts, just for added safety, so I understand you.
