    create>copy is an awesome sticker!

    car looks good. did you flat it down afterwards? and is it satin or matt? i went to B&Q but other than purple the colours were gash. so decided to go online and get myself another colour.

    Here's a little update. I woke up the other week to find the clutch had just 'stopped' working.. got it low loaded to a garage and fitted a Stage 2 Paddle Clutch to it. Cut and Re-Welded the exhaust and have been doing a few other bits and bobs to it.

    I also fitted some 180sx Sideskirts :)

    Plan on picking up a FC3S RE-A Rear Diffuser, or an ABFlug one next month along with a new Garage Vary Front lip. Have some tie rods to fit, new tyres all round with some spacers up front then i'll pop it in for some alignment before the next drift day on the 28th :)

    Really loving this little car.. but cant help but want to bolt on a Super Charger now..

    Also Removed the aircon system, fitted a new radiator with twin fans and a switch in the cabin to allow me to turn it on and off myself.
    Fitted an ARC Intake Chamber and another HKS filter. Also rewired a heap of shit which was annoying me.

    Changed out the headlight motor as it packed in, hmm what else have I been doing? Oh got a new Garage vary lip in the garage waitin to fit and iv just stripped the coilovers and cleaned them up etc. Plan on adjusting the archs around an inch lower and dong something with the front ones.

    Then I think im going to be getting it in for another paint job in a couple of weeks........ we'll see! Oh.. and fitted a new power steering belt since i could.

    the more i see the more i desperately, without a doubt want one....



    BUT


    MX5 is one of the best handling RWD cars yes? so why do people lower them etc? its always bugged me.....yes it looks awesome but surely handling cant be improved much?
