Many have seen my car before but I figure ill post the progress of it so far..

this is a very small and quick run thru of the cars progress. the main build thread is on CLUBROADSTER .

I wanna make a shoutout to Road Pirate and the slamburglar/slammed/moderately slammed/post your red roadster thread for constant inspiration! ;)

Well I bought the car bone stock about 2 months ago. Been just messing with it since then

you can find most of this on my build thread but since im about to fly down for IA the build thread is on hold

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4097/4780551647_58fef3c372_z.jpg

and then i picked up a primer miata with 1.8 LSD swap, perfect body, and full 95 converted interior.. so started to switch stuff over. Bought the car from an older guy who was the old turbo tech for Flying Miata.

Wait wait wait. Which car is getting what parts from the other car?

BassboatS13
07-27-2010, 01:35 AM
the primer car is getting parts from the red car.. crazy? yes. but it has a better motor, better body, and just more potential. the red one has its dings and the 180k weak 1.6

still waiting to get it painted. I am getting real impatient and losing inspiration. I need to sell the other Miata as I am crunching for money bad. Roommate is jobless so that means no rent and more utilities so I think this will take longer than I expected. Here is the last pic of the old one and just remember this one will be like 5 times better! ;]

I can dig it. A faster car thats just primed is better than an okay car with paint in my book.

What does the red one still have on it? And how much are you selling it for?

BassboatS13
08-08-2010, 06:33 PM
it still has my momo and alpine and black tail piece on it.. but as far as bone stock goes i want 2000. and they go for 3000+

Funny thing is, I only make 1400$ a month, or thereabouts. I don't know how much Dan makes but I believe around the same? We both have low rent, and we budget like crazy. Dan's been living off ramen to save up for the paint job :lol:

Loving this miata thread... ALMOST as much as VotionSpeed's haha

Keep up the good work man, I know at times you lose all hope and inspiration and want to give up. Been there and done that over the last 4 years with my build... but I stuck through it and it was all worth it! Can't wait to see this progress more, you and VotionSpeeds miata's are pretty sick, now you bot make me want one... shit.
