    Again big thanks to Adam aka Revlimiter for the blog post on Warbird! It really meant (means) alot to me!
    http://revlimiter.net/blog/2016/12/spotlight-warbird/


    I had about $15k in parts(actually kept a running total) and I paid $5500 originally, so over $20k in Warbird. Thankfully between the part out and selling the 97M in mostly stock form I was able to recoupe over $15k. If I had kept Warbird I would have had to spend another $10k-$12k to get Warbird 'finished'. At least this is my only real vice.

    I will be stealing your aluminum brake duct idea for my front bumper.

    For my Miata I am on the path of no return. If something in my life changes where I need to sell the car, I will need to sell the complete car in it's final configuration.
