Stance Complete

Today was a busy day! I managed to get enough time at work to call around the local tyre shops, Hoping to score some cheap tyres. Thankfully I did.

So after work, I rushed home and grabbed the pair of superlites, I then fitted up. I also lowered the rear a tad too.

I did try the 7mm spacers at the rear, but there wasn’t enough thread to safely tighten the lugs.

Final offsets are -1 front and +4 rear.

I’ll see how the current height goes before I get a wheel alignment.


Finally Here!

I was halfway through lunch when an unusual truck stopped out front, I had a sneeking suspision that it was the Bomex bumper, and I was right!

I opened it up straight away to have a look, everything seemed in check, now I needed to wait until I finished work to have a closer look.

Here’s a comparison photo of the Bomex and OEM bumper.

I managed to get the bumper dummy fitted, to see how well it would actually fit. It’s not “too” bad, It needs some work to say the least though.

The bumper looks great on the MX-5, It gives the car a very aggressive look.

The Bomex bumper hangs a lot lower than OEM, that’s for sure!

One thing that’s good about the Bomex bumper, is that you don’t need to remove the reinforcement bar behind the OEM bumper. I can also use my beatrush number plate bracket too. Unfortunately, I’ll need to redesign another tow hook, as the Renenmetal one interfere’s with the Bomex bumper.

 Hopefully I’ll get to play around with it a little more on the weekend.

Wild Weekend Pt.3

While the MX rests on jackstands, I figured it wouldn’t be a better time to trial fit the new wheels, the pictures speak for themselves.

Looks to be flush doesn’t it? the jack stands were supporting the LCA throughout these pictures, heres another angle.

I really can’t wait to get these wheels on the car, I’ve thought about putting them on as is, but I think it can wait until they get powdercoated.

In a nutshell, thats what I got up to last weekend. This weekend we have worked on the new exhaust setup, Stay tuned!
