    My little Green moneypit

    So everything began back in 2015!
    I was searching a fun to drive 2 seater roadster and miata was the answer!
    It was a totaly stock nb2 1.8lt vvt with lsd and big brakes and thats all!
    When i bought it i said to my self that ill spend no money on this car and ill just take care of it's maintenance..oh god what a lie!
    The same night i found on jdmbits.com my first mod
    Msm front and rear lip it was a bit expensive but it worth it it wasnt any shit quality fiberglass..
    Two weeks after i installed em i found some decent tein super street coilovers..
    As the time was passing through i got a yatur media player wich adds mp3/usb on oem stereo,i got some Citroen Picasso 2004 fog light wich is pnp to our cars,garage star door bushings(i didn't notice any difference other that the door sounds like vw golf 2017 hehe)!...some red reflectors for rear bumber and then Next was the front strut bar and thats was all for 2015!
    After long time of money saving and searching for inspiration about wheels i decide to make the step for some decent wheels!
    Custom order of Work cr kai 2 kiwamis 15x8j eet5 and Bridgestone potenza re02 205/50 (oh Lord grate tyres), i also got center caps from work and black valve stems! The wheels got locked to the car with some mishimoto tunner lug nuts!
    Next step was to paint my headlight to get as close as i can to the msm miata!
    The time was running and one morning i woke up and i saw that the vinyl roof was striped out..a good guy from mu neighborhood was searching for something but im ok maybe was ment to be and it was time for a mohair roof hhehe..thank god my insurance covered it!!
    I was satisfied with the car but something was missing...and that was mazda oem sideskirts i hit them for 80 on ebay!!
    I was satisfied again but not for long..i wanted an upgrade but this time i choose the brakes maintenance dixcel discs,dixcel type es brake pads new oem brake hoses ,dixcel brake fluid!!
    I just realized that with the right stuff the brake feeling is amazing on this car hehe!!
    Some more maintenance stuff like gearbox and differential oil idemitsu gear oil made the feeling of gear changing amazing!!and the lsd lock it got so smooth!
    Back on the exterior again i add a oem boot rack,a hardtop and a zoom engineering fuel cap!!ye ye i love the retro style on nbs..
    Now was time for aome interior changing..i found a pair of brown phoinix edition leather heated seats in decwnt price and i grab them,i bolt em in and the interior was so classy allready!The good thing was that i sold my black velvet seats the next day so i had a place to stay for one more month!hehe
    Next change was a wooden nardi deep corn 330mm combined with a daikei hub(thx Harryb for all the information about installation,air bag light delete and a horn button that works fine huh) the bext day i ordered nardi 5speed wooden teardrop and wooden handbrake cover thatbhopefully they both mached the steering wheel colour and last but not least a grate product from Adam !!
    Revlimiter apolo gen3 gauge faces!!

    I really love the '02 SE Brown seats. I'd argue that those with black carpet look better than the '01 BRG/Tan combo.

    Luggage rack and fuel lid make a nice retro combination for the rear end. Chrome on green looks great!

    And it makes a great combination with the wood as well! It is really refreshing seeing quality builds; here 90% of the Miata owners/builds are the hellaflush JDM swag type.

    Those mirrors were a steal! Glad they ended up in good hands, as well as the panel. TBH I was really disappointed when I realized I could not use my AWD rings with the panel, and I did not want to butcher it to make them fit, so all good!
