Stripe: Just from a sign shop in town. I bought like 30 feet of white vinyl (3M 7-year, which means you can REMOVE it for 7 years) and had them cut it. Then I just laid it on piece by piece. No backing. Much easier to lay without the backing.

MORE PIX!!!!!!!!!!! I'll just paste the same post I made in the Elise seat thread in the interior section.





Seatbelt receiver detail shot and a shot of a stock NB seatbelt receiver. Looks like an easy swap to me. The later NA receiver is on my Elise seat.








Elise seats mounted in an NB! I ripped the driver's seat out of my wife's car and stuck in my Elise seat since I was moving it around for the next photo. As you can see, it fits fine. It doesn't even look out of place next to the stock seat. I think Bryan needs one. Or two!

and yes, matching cars.




And here, finally, is my dorky self-portrait seat comparison. I borrowed my wife's spiffy fabric cutting mat to give a bit of a grid background. The thing is huge, but it could have been another few inches higher. Still, it does the job with the help of a magic Photoshop line. Neither the camera, the car, or the grid moved between shots. The only thing that changed is the seat. I positioned both seats where I like to sit for driving and sat in a natural posture. No slouching or neck stretching. As you can see, I sit a good bit lower and my head is protected much better by the actual headrest.

Adamae!!! hahaha. I've been drooling over various Nakamae shots for months, maybe years now. Mostly Tim's. That quilting is just too awesome to not try to replicate in black. And I have enough to maybe do a custom hardtop headliner. Maybe. I'm considering it. I think I'll recover my armrest in diamond stitched leather and see how that looks.

and also, huge thanks. LOL. X-to-tha-Z in the house!!! Hold the Pimp Cup till after I get off the Rotas. Maybe I'll deserve to be the caretaker of it then.

It was worth it to keep the car just for the spare bolts! heh. I've got multiples of everything. It pretty much rocks, except for the storage problem. also, thanks.

hehe. Okay, to become immodest for a second, I've had my site up a LONG time. You'd think in all that time, I'd hear such things a little more often, but I really don't. Until I updated my start button install, it was all just emails like "my wipers dont wurk nemore." lol

It had to happen eventually. I work downtown. I park downtown. After 9 years of top-down parking, I finally lost a stereo.

I came out the elevator and walked up the ramp to my assigned spot in a structure I've parked in for 11 years and met the other Miata owner that parks up there. He was fiddling with something in his car. "Hey, you've got the other Miata, right? I think you're missing a stereo." That's how he greeted me. heh. I had no reply to that other than confusion. So I walk up to Sharka and sure enough, there's wires and no stereo. The other Miata still had it's stereo, but it was in pieces. The thief couldn't get it, so they destroyed it instead. Wonderful, huh?

There's not much damage on my car at all. Not a scratch on the center cover tombstone. The wires were cut clean in the middle of the aftermarket adapter harness, so there's not much to fix there. I'd have to cut it there anyway to splice in a new radio. It could have been much worse.

Before anyone asks, I always ALWAYS remove the face plate and the day I lost my radio was no different. 99% of the time, I put it in my trunk which can only be unlocked with the key. Not today. Nope. I left it in the center armrest like an idiot. I'll not do that again.

One last thing. In my car was a bunch of waded up receipts. I never have any trash in Sharka. I shoved them in my pocket and then inspected when I got home. Sure enough, not my receipts. I don't go to Bank of America, nor this post office, and my hair is not cut by Laverna. So. Edward Yang is now listed on my police report for all the good it would do.







I'm leaning toward a completely hidden head unit install for my next radio. I'll definitely post it here, but maybe not on my site...

Nope. That's on a side of town I rarely visit. I might go check it out though...

The rookie was the one who hit the other Miata. WHO BREAKS A FACE PLATE??? Seriously, it was broken in half, and yet of the removable variety. I guess he broke it when he couldn't get the rest of the radio out. My theory is there were two guys. The "pro" did my car. The rookie did the other Miata. Still, who leaves receipts???

lol! I considered calling all the Yangs in the city (like 10) and asking for Edward. But I'm over it. I get a project out of the thing.

hehe. Just the lower door panels on the driver's side and the black under-edge on both sides. The 95 has had bubbling paint down there for the past 6 months. Very scary. It crinkles (crinkleD) when you pressed on it.

This past weekend, I drilled my fenders. And I had some help.














I made a super-huge how-to page for my site about the whole process.
http://www.revlimiter.net/mods/sidewinker.html
Been a long time since I've done one of those. It was fun. Making the page took me about an hour longer than actually doing the install even with photos and toy playtime.

and I'll have pix of my lower door respray soon. Been waiting for it to cure enough to put on the clear bra. I did that as well this weekend and took the final pix.

Default Re: The Sharka rebuild

After alluding to it on the last page, here's the paint photos.

Why paint? Because of this.


This is my driver's side lower door rock guard area. Notice the texture? It's like MAD wrinkle finish. Easily 4x the wrinkle finish of any Miata I've ever seen. When I bought the 95, I noticed this crazy finish, but didn't let it bother me. Then as the weather changed from winter to spring, the paint started to BUBBLE UP.


I've been scared to death that the bubbles would just pop and I'd be left with holes in my paint until I fixed it. I took my finger to the bad spot and took off this much with just my fingernail. It was incredible. And underneath, the wrinkle undercoating was WET. It never cured properly.


Notice the blue peeking out? Underneath the bad undercoating was stock montego blue paint. They hadn't even scuffed it. It was shiny.


and this much of the front paint was removed with my fingernail. Less total bubbled up area, but more individual bubbles.


More montego paint under there. Le sigh. Idiots. It's bad when the guy with the rattle cans has a better clue about paint work than whoever the previous owner paid for this.


I also scuffed the lower door panels. No paint was coming off there and the undercoating was a different texture, but it needed to be painted all the same shade. Also, I was insanely methodical about masking off the rest of the car, though it might not look it here. When I finished, I had zero overspray. I completely sealed up the underside even.


and I used this stuff. It's pretty darn soft when it "cures" but it's cheap, I had it, and it's a good paint match. And I protected it with 3M Xpel clear bra already anyway.


While I was painting, I figured why not get rid of that black beltline and have a complete montego blue car. My 97 had a body-color belt line and I wanted the same on the 95.


Somewhere in the middle of alllll the primer coats it took.


I moved my camera inside when I started spraying, so I didn't shoot each coat. I did 6 or 8 coats of Montego. Thin coats, but still... a lot. This might have been the final coat.


Finished. Didn't take any wet sanding pix. To be honest, it didn't need much. The rock guard area isn't extremely shiny on a stock car anyway. I spent about 2 hours with 3M buffing compound and called it good.


The passenger side came out really nice. You can barely tell anyway, but instead of being dull when you look at it in the sun, it's now shiny.


Finally, the paint-match shot. This is with high saturation in the morning to get some light hitting directly on the side of the car. 135mm f/2.8. I had to stand like 200 feet away to get the whole car in frame.


And a low saturation shot. It really is a decent match. I'm happy. I "baked" the front fender paint for a few days with random heat gun applications. After a week, I covered it in clear bra. That should protect the soft paint until I decide on a professional whole-car respray.

The paint isn't perfect, but no more chance of it bubbling off makes me happy and satisfies my paint project requirements.

Looks even more like lots of garbage bags to me.

It's a tarp! 50 feet by 20 feet by 8 mil? Something huge like that, hence the taping up the sides to prevent sagging. I cut off a large piece to use on the ground. I also had a 10x10 spare clear tarp that I used on the passenger side on the concrete (not pictured). I considered a roll of paper, but I decided I trusted thick plastic more than easy-to-tear paper.

Home Depot. Amazingly cheap.

I knew it was thicker than trash bags. Guess I'll have to hit up the Depot again :rolleyes:

In Bryan's defense, I believe I *did* use garbage over the wheels as an extra layer of defense.
