Just bought 96, the paint is not that great, but I got a deal.This will be my second miata. I had a NICE red 92 with a built motor pushing about 130 whp a few years back. Quick question does anyone know what kind of paint I have? its either montego blue or excellent green mica. When I look at the paint, it has a metallic finish that's mostly green with a hint of blue.

Thanks guys!, I had a feeling that it would be montego blue, but wasn't sure. When the sun hits it,its mostly green but looks bluish in the shade. I miss that smell of the canvas.

I'm taking a different path on this car. I will mostly keep it original but with koni shocks and sways. These aftermarket rims need to go, I'm getting ready to put some oem wheels.Maybe in the future I will invest on a jracing sc.

Welcome back! If it makes you feel any better, those wheels look great compared to some of the aftermarket wheels people leave on their cars :lol:

Thanks, but It suck because the original owner used conical lug bolts, when these rims on the picture uses a flat lug bolts. I can't find the bolts that goes with these wheels. I don't think kragen would sell them.

This was my old miata, FM built head: port n polished, integral stage 2 cams,head shaved. Port match intake manifold.RB header,exhaust,custom mandrel bent intake,light weight flywheel,MS pnp tuned.Block was .020 overbore. If I remember it was pulling 135 whp. After a while I boosted it to 10 psi and was pushing over 200hp, and later tuned down to 8 pounds. 200hp on a miata is scary.
