Default Trentin's Build Thread.

It's late at night and I'm really bored so here goes nothing.

I haven't done any work yet due to just starting my job. but, I'm gonna post my wish list items for now. and will soon be updating with progress.

First off it's a 1993. 150k miles. did a vin check, has had 7 previous owners. and I think it was first bought in california by some old couple.

OTHER THINGS I WTB.
- racing beat exhaust system
- racing beat header
- nardi wood wheel(small like, 12 inch one)
- nrg quick release
- wood shift knob and e-brake handle


ALSO Probably getting oem mud flaps for front and rear (if you have some you will sell to me that would rule.) , and getting it re-painted white. Might clean up the engine bay before repaint. Also Cant decide between getting a flyin' miata turbo kit or going the ITB route. If anyone has got the turbo kit for a 1.6l please tell me what you think of it.


Or if anyone else has suggestions for any of these items but a better brand or whatever for similar price let me know.



First day I brought it home.


The hardtop that currently isn't on my car (Because my dad bought it) because I didn't have enough to buy the car PLUS the hardtop. After a couple more paychecks I should be able to get it.


When I got alignment done. (note awesome "B00 DEE" tag)


Funny "I'd Cap That" picture.


Revolutions I plan on getting.


Coilovers I'm getting.


Lip I'm getting.

Yeah, unfortunately I won't be tracking the car at all so not really worried about weight. You're where I got the idea for these wheels, apologies for jacking yo style but I just love them hahaha. By the way if you're from the states, how much did it cost to ship them here?

Edit: oop, can see your info now.

Surprisingly the paint is pretty good. No sun fading, no major chips. There's the usual dirt stains on the bumpers but that's about it. But i'm repainting it and removing the ugly vinyl strip at the bottom and pinstripe hahaha. And yes the hardtop is OEM.

Clean car Trent hopefully you can build it into something great. Good luck and take your time. Do it right the first time as they say. My advice is do regular maintenance on it first fluids and what knot. Then focus on mods. Also don't cheap out on suspension and look into bushings.

Ordering them from revolution. at £136.67 each ($221.76) and £180.00 ($292.07) for shipping. that shipping price is excluding any US importing duties or what ever. haven't checked into how much that will be.

Revolution wheels are among my favourite wheels, they'll look pretty good on white on white .
Do you know how heavy they actually are? I've read they're heavy but haven't found weights yet.
Donkervoort uses them as their original equipment wheels, so I can't imagine they're thát bad.
