A while back I posted about my car being wrecked at VIR (sudden downpour of rain + shaved Toyos + fresh oil from a blown engine right in front of me = my car backwards into the tirewall). I took that as a sign to get rid of my strips (which I never really liked) and striped the car and painted it. Excuse the terrible pictures (old 35mm camera, plus I was excited to show off the car), but overall I think it looks pretty good considering it was the first time I have painted a car myself

It's just an Ansa muffler, there when I bought the car, but I like the sound. The whole system is getting ready to be replaced (one day....)

Glad to see you back up and running. Who did your bodywork? My potato is in need of a paint job soon.
The damage was mostly cosmetic (bumper, rear panel, trunk lid). A buddy and I did all the work ourselves. I honestly think the trailer hitch probably saved me from having much more damage

I hope you don't leave that plate on when tracking it. Otherwise I like.
why not?
That's where I keep my plate when I'm commuting around town and such. But when I'm "cruising" around at night or at the track, I take it off to get as much airflow as I can through the nose. I definitely like the new cleaner look. Good job on the body work!
Agreed, that's why the plate is on hinges, so when the car moves it flips up

Damn. I can't believe I forgot about those!! I wanted one way back even before I owned a Miata. I've had mine for three and a half years now and resort to taking it on and off!! ](*,)
