Talking I've started collecting Mazdas...

Or so it seems. Picked up a '97 Miata yesterday for, what I think, was a pretty good deal. Mechanically sound. Just some cosmetic problems. Driver seat leather & some foam are shot, hardtop needs a repaint, she has some dings & one fender replaced, but wrong color, both bumpers could use a repaint & the soft top window might be shot. I think it's just the zipper so I'm going to order that $13 zipper rescue kit & see.

I plasti-dipped the hardtop for now along w/the wheels since they look like shit otherwise.

I wanted another vert & I wanted cheap. I accomplished that by finding this car.

I put a bra on the front to hide the spot of paint damage there. I touched up the many areas of chipped paint on the rear bumper. I have CalTrends seat covers on the way. I painted the calipers flat black while I was doing the wheels. I decided to plasti-dip the mismatched fender too. At least it is black now.

I also claybared her then took my buffer to the paint with Maguire's correction compound then their polish & wax.

I still would like to find a used roll bar, but nothing on the forums yet so I will keep waiting.

I have to control myself, she is supposed to be my cheap drop top fun cruiser.



Busy weekend!

Indeed you are correct. As I mentioned, the fender (driver side) was replaced. It must have whacked the hood too when it happened. I'm not too worried about it right now. Too many other things to do like get new tires M&B, fix rear window zipper (hopefully b/c top is still good) & replace windshield.
