    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    With the help of a "Coach", I started the body work last night. (Pictures to follow) We started attacking 12 year worth of parking lot dings, I'm sure this will fit in the boot dings, I'm sure I can fit between these two bushes scratches, and I think I can pull up a little closer to the wheel-stop bloody noses!

    It's a great place to start, no rust, no structural damage, just dings and dents, and sunburned clearcoat.

    Sure it looks like hell with bondo acne starting to erupt everywhere (The primer would be like Clearisil) but to me it's beautiful. Cause I know that the dings are going away and fresh GREEN, yes I said GREEN paint is in it's future!

    We have used a paintless dent repair guy that does excellent work. He was at the All Miata meet last year and also at the Sebring meet. Have his contact number if interested. WolfTDI, Yata, and I can vouch for his work. He got an impossible dent out of my hood! Some other tough ones without body work/painting.

    Thanks anyway...
    This guy does great PDR, in fact with the exception of the sunburn he could have gotten most of the dings. The point is that I want to learn how to do it so that in the future, I am not at the mercy of the bodyshop if I want to get a scratch or a ding out!

    I finished bolting in the Rollbar. Mostly it went per the instructions but there are a few "fill in the blanks" anyhooo, it's bolted in, looks very manly feels rock solid! Now it's time cut (gasp) the quarter trim, carpet, package shelf cover etc. Wish me luck!

    That's a lot of work. Pat yourself on the back. Getting everything trimmed back to look like it belongs is a trial of patience. Hope you don't make any miscuts. Remember cardboard templates are your friend.
