    As She Sits


    Well, I haven't made any progress- But what I know for sure is the entire front end body (bumper, hood, fenders, flares) are done as well for the intercooler and my ducting system.

    Aside from a slightly cocked wheel, I think the chassis is just fine- I will take it in to be inspected some time in the future, but for now she will just have to sit; I will be graduating soon and I am currently working with Hotwheels design studio so time has definitely become short for me.

    Its Been a Time


    Well, My internship has been fruitful- and now i am beginning my final term at Art Center. I really haven't made much progress in repairing, but i have at least obtained a new OEM bumper and replacement front fenders (luckily i had a spare set of flares). Im not entirely sure what ill be doing for a lip yet.

    KINOD at Grange Motor-Circuit

    Before i set in to making alterations to the car- I had planned a KINOD only track day at Grange for my Father who had been visiting at them time. Nothing serious, just pure fun! We had grip and drift sessions- but near the end of the day, we were just going on and off track as we pleased.

    My day was cut short after an alternator failure- luckily i got a few sessions in with my Father and friends.





    Beginnings of Ridiculous

    What began as a silly quick Photoshop, led to reality- I've been toying with the idea of a Long Tail for a while. Blackbird Fabworx agreed to help me using the same design as his Creampuff build- in which i will alter a few aspect to fit my fastback (including remolding the trunk).

    It shall be a lengthy endeavor- but i will be moving this car into LM territory over time.





    We gave Moti's a quick test fit to my car and i could see the vision working- in due time. I will be going wingless for my build- despite how well it would function. I will be paint matching the tail to the rest of the vehicle, i would like this to stay out of the realm of "Race Livery".





    Other Matters

    Began to clean up the front of the car in prep to remount the new fenders after paint- While down in the area, i added a set of Garagestar Fender Braces. While i have not tested them- i cant wait to feel the change.





    Cleaned the bay a bit.



    Even trimmed the rear bumper sides to allow the tail to fit overtop- so i can retain the GVs and mounts



    This is all for now- It looks like ill be missing Miatas Race Laguna Seca because of schooling, but soon again she will have her glory!

    Thanks for always staying tuned!

    Thanks for the update Jeremy. Nice reminder that I'm behind and that outside KINOD, it's always worthwhile sharing what we're up to on MR.net!!
