Default NickPic83's 94 Miata

well i finally bought my 1st miata! picked it up 11/7/12 and drove it home about 60 miles in a nor'easter. it alread has:
flying miata stage 1 suspension, FM springs and tokico illumina shocks and fat cat motorsports upper mounts(NB)
replica R front lip
CAI
Black Konig Muniz rims and dunlop tires
alpine headunit
frame stiffiner





the miata is dwarfed by my SVT Raptor lol

the roads are still salty and i have been driving it so i dont have any good clean pics yet. hopefully i will have some this weekend after i give it a oil cahnge and tune up. goin Mobil 1 synthetic oil, NGK plugs and wires and some other little odds and ends

but here are pics i got from the PO





already ordered a bunch of goodies to mod it with including:
Enthuza NA racer exhaust
voodoo shift ****
Clearwater headrest speakers(factory ones blown)
hella E-code headlights w/hella performance xenon bulbs
black style bar(i know most people are not fans of these but i like it and i am not running it at the track so i have no need for a real roll bar)
new AGM battery(westco that came with the car seems very weak)
LED reverse bulbs
some LED interior bulbs

this should get me started and hold me over for the winter for now. until spring when i really can enjoy the car after i spend the cold season learning the car some more. only owned the car a couple days but i love it more and more as i drive it. now i see why this car has such a devoted following. this thing is a blast to drive!:thumbs:

welcome to the miata community, make sure to clean everything really well, including the rain rail and drains.

under the car you will find (one on each side) a rubber line hanging down just in fron of the rear wheels. stick a screwdriver (or the guy i know uses an air compressor) to push up through and clean them out. poor water down the back and should drain. rinse and repeat until you feel its cleaned out.
btw badass raptor

The air conditioner drain can clog up sometimes, too.

well since my last post i have done a few small things. need to get picks the next time its nice out.

-LED interior light and flipped the whole housing upside down to direct the light up(more like straight out) more than straight down
-ditched the useless sun visors(blocked my foward vision)
-NGK plugs and wires
-Mobil 1 synthetic oil change
-undercoated the car
-vodoo shift **** (love the way it feels in my hand)
-LED reverse bulbs(i back in every where i park, makes it alot easier and they look nice)
-AGM battery
-Clearwater headrest speakers(better than stock, good but not great, new door components are in my future)
-hella E-code headlights w/hella performance xenon bulbs
-black style bar(i know most people are not fans of these but i like it and i am not running it at the track so i have no need for a real roll bar even tho i want one)
-Enthuza NA racer exhaust(love the way it sounds, very deep tone and louder than stock but not annoyingly loud at all) i highly recommend it!
-removed pitted miata badge on rear finish panel
-gave the chrome handles, mazda logo on rear, and frankenstien bolts a brushed look. the car is all black and i hate how much these stood out. the brushed look looks great!
-all the light lenses look cloudy and aged. buffed all of them with a polishing compound then waxed them with sealer and glaze. they look like new again and i can actual see a light output difference.
