you should get wheels for these at some point
well i kind of bought another set of wheels, 15" blitz technospeed z1's. i intend to kill the stance game with 5.5j +45



but actually no, I intend on rebuilding and refinishing the wheels to 8.5j. looking for sources on 15" reverse lips if anyone has info on that. also uncertain if i should go full polish or paint the faces silver. i photoshopped polished ones just to see, and i dig it:

maybe love20bee or wheelflip, unfortunately i dont think there are any aftermarket lips that have the flat edge like that though

first post since the website has changed looks. i hate it

i got the technospeeds in the mail. im not sure what im gonna do with them, but im not selling them. theyre too cute. i think i'm gonna rebuild them a pair at a time. over the span of a couple years or so (poor people things.) the car has been in storage for a month now and i miss it, plans for next year are baby turbos and intake/exhaust. also gonna fix a bunch of little **** and grind off the rust that i can.

car is out of storage, no changes made on it other than getting the vitaloni baby turbos on and repairing the PO's rear crash damage. oh and put a rear lip on. really waiting on the covid **** to relax so i can safely visit my parents' garage to take care of rust and an apparently new oil leak.

no updates on na8 other than it is parked until at least next year. car needs too much TLC to be driving it as regularly as i have been. rear seals and clutch and stuff, bushings, engine mounts, rust repair and other body work, etc. new wheels and coilovers too sooner than later.


in other news my scion was totaled and i bought a fit.


2nd gen (ge8) base model, no rust (this is amazing to me still). being a 2nd gen fit, they tend to blow the plugs out of the head so i replaced those asap. also the front bumper was doa so i replaced it with a sport bumper. lowered and wheels eventually. really love this car, definitely the nicest thing i have owned (sad)

Your Miata needs most of the things mine is getting in the next couple weeks. Good luck!

Always kind of wanted a Fit. In fact, I had cross-shopped the Fit against what eventually became the Mazda5 I bought instead. The Fit was overpriced for what it was (the Mz5 was bigger, quieter, more useful, despite costing slightly less).
