The front bumper, cut an opening for the radiator.


Radiator setup: JVR dual core aluminum miata radiator


Coolant lines running underneath the car:


Bought a battery from Autozone, welded a battery tray from angle stock, painted it red, and bolted it to the trunk floor. And retro-fitted trunk struts off a Lexus ES250 for our trunk.


Rebuilt the pedal cluster:


Also rebuilt all 4 calipers and painted them gold'ish bronze:


Installed the intake:

Remaining things to do:

-have a shop make our header and exhaust
-complete the wiring
-reinstall interior,
-install front windshield
-paint exterior with rustoleum red
-install the rear CVs
-paint bumpers and install
-install rocker panels
-install door and trunk locks
-fill cooling system with 2 gallons of coolant

i'm probably missing some small things but that's about it and we could fire it up.

heres our CSOB rustoleum red paint job:






paints uncut, needs to be wetsanded and buffed out.


then picked up a LE fiberglass lip with a chunk missing, so did a repair with short strand fiberglass. i added a layer of fiberglass to the front, but dont have a picture of the finished product yet. im still sanding it.
