    Brake upgrade is in the works, going to do pads, rotors, and calipers. But looking for another oe+ upgrade. But it stops as right now, I'll address the brakes after a couple shake down drives. Trying to get the big money stuff out of the way.

    Re: Ugly Betty

    So ugly Betty, is still ugly.


    BUT I did get some goodies a little while ago that will make her a little less sore on the eye. Not sure how many remember my black miata, but j found a good deal on some bsp dual low pro headlights. They are in somewhat rough condition, and I'm in the process of restoring them to their former glory. I'm trying a new photo site, so well see if it works.. I topl one headlight apart just to see what happens

    Also, going out of the norm for what I use to do. Finally ride height is about 4.25" all around from the pinch welds to the ground. I do have some more fender/body work to do, in order to get everything to look right. And yes, I ditched the fender flares. I couldn't bring myself to cut the rear quarter panels...This is ugly Betty at her first home visit

    In the process of ordering some black, textured plastic to redo the door cards. While await a stupid good deal on tan interior swap.

    I have been hoping to see some progress pics!

    I do like those headlights, I need to look out for a set

    Car doesn't look nearly as ugly as I remember, so you are definitely going in the right direction with the build!

    Good to see that you haven't lost interest in this one. Looks like it's coming together. Keep up the good work.

    Still ugly lol, itll be a minute before she gets paint. Working in getting a bunch of turbo stuff, and wanting to get started in the body work.

    And I've always loved my bsp low profile lights. I'd advise on getting some RS active ones if you can get them for a good price!

    I WONT be getting rid of this one, I've been without a miata for way too long. Progress might slow down here and there. But this one will be the one I keep forever

    I like the head lights they remind me of the quad headlights installed on Rally cars.
