Hard to believe its the same car ,dave your a star :worship:
Its settled a little bit more now, but coilies next on the list,the speedo is still reading perfect and she is very poised and actually feels better over the bumpy stuff now, must be the extra inches of rubber lol,certainly gets lots of attention,i actually found a fella taking photos of it last night --- on my drive cheeky fecker.
Just got home from work and the misses has left her tt roadster at home and knicked it to go to work :rant: :baseballbat:
most noticable differance is the rear doesnt squirm in the wet like it used to on the wantanbes.
cant say how pleased i am with it ,actually amazes me just how fat she is now,looks 2 feet shorter :D

Well finally found got round to toning down my rear lights,tried to tint them before but failed with tinting film,so sprayed them.
rather pleased that they dont stick out as much as they did,not everyones cuppa tea,but i like em.
At least until i get some zoom or vary ones.

Thanks i am very pleased with the direction its going in now,so much more to do,its difficult to prioritise :confused: but hooligan is supplying a pair of seats that should give the interior some direction next,but trying to save for a set of coilovers to get her sitting a little more in keeping with the look i want is high on the agender,but finances took a beating to get this far ,but when i walk away from her after parking her up i always find myself having a glance back over my shoulder :wub:

OK I need those wide arches NOW. They are tuckin99 right?

http://rev9autosport...der-flares.html

Over a 1000 USD + shipping... Crazy Rev9 people!!! You said you can find replicas on miataturbo but no luck yet. Could you provide me a link please? :)

Thanks!

I searched for replicas... it was all rather fruitless - after much chasing, there was a guy in the US who was creating copies etc.

In the end I ordered directly from Tuckin99 in japan - it was pretty painless - they arrived in about a week! (and cost about half of Rev9)

Ps - I've got a set of (smaller) arches which I may part with (unused) - not the tuckins - which I love :)
