Thread: Just another Miata..

  1. #1

    Default Just another Miata..?

    Hey!
    Last year I owned a Miata NB but had to get rid of it due to university.. Now student loan and sidejob made me buy a Miata from 1994. I was looking for quite some time now for a US Import, and after finally finding a not-red one in Germany I just had to get it.
    The car has 160k miles on it, couple of scratches and dents here and there, perfect.
    I've got lots of plans for this car, I'm currently getting the car back in shape to get it registered here in Luxembourg and then I'll really start the build.

    Now a few photos:








    There were leaves EVERYWHERE, the interior was full of them, engine bay, trunk...
    And the old owner thought it was a good idea to use chewing gum to put a super cool clock and something for his stylish glasses on the dashboard....



    Taillights, full of leaves!



    Removed blinkers, head and taillight to clean them and clean behind the housings.



    The gum wasn't easy to get off, but at the end I managed to remove it completly!





    I'll keep you guys updated, cheers

    If you pay the flight and everything I'm coming over haha!

    This is what the car now looks like with its official luxemburgish plates. As you can see the one in the back is way smaller, usually illegal to have on your car, but since this is an US Import I can have it on there!

    Can't wait to finally get the car registered and start ordering parts!

    I've always liked NA than NB. Keep it up! Is it 1.6 or 1.8l engine?
    www.carmem.es <--- it's quite fun.

    Exactly, NB's have potential too though!

    It is a 1.8l engine.

    Just to keep you guys updated, I still wasn't able to register the car here since I'm missing a couple of papers for the car, but I've found another solution, hopefully I'll be able to drive this thing next week, and get it registered here around April and finally start ordering car parts!

    Out of boredom I cleaned up the original wheels, and also found another forest behind the front fenders!

    Wow, great job cleaning this thing up. Looks like a nice start.

    What are your plans for it?

    Wow! Super clean man! How did you clean those wheels?! Clean + respray?

    Thanks!
    Well coilovers and wheels first, then front lip, hardtop with spoiler, interiorwise aftermarket steering wheel, rollbar and racing seats. Next year I'm maybe willing to go with fender flares, but I'll have to see!

    Exactly, cleaned them, used some sandpaper to smoothen things out and did a little respray, turned out better than expected

    Thanks! Well I don't see the point on buying wheels that have more value than the car itself..

    Love the OEM look from a NA miata with the R package lip! Well played sir on the cleaning off the car! What coils are you running? They look like Vmaxx?

    So it finally happened, no front photos yet since the front doesn't have the height I want it yet.

    Fenders will be rolled next way for some extra clearence!

    Haven't posted here for a while. Next week I'll be able to go lower in the front and generally wider to get a better fitment, new side mirrors and stuff from Autokonexion are heading my way.
