No. I agree. My focus was what I wanted it to be. If you care what other people think about it too much then it's not your car anymore.

I like JDM in the right places -- but not on a ford. haha.

There's a lot more I would have done to our miata if we hadn't turned it into an exocet. lol

hahaha I cant argue with the ford comment..

The miatas are insane looking when done right, I would love a static rat rat rod style/ patina effect. You have a shop?

Who cares? If it works for him it works for him.

Some things I don't like but I respect the thought and work he put into it.

What are your wheel specs and what size tires? Are you going to do anything more with the grill? I dont mind the zetec body pieces but the striping is a bit much. Any plans for either pulling the fenders, wide body or flares?

You mean lack of camber Could use some negative camber to tuck those wheels inside the fenders a bit more. But too much poke for me, needs some wider fenders to go with it.

May i see a picture of your car?

Wheels:
18x10.5 +22
Front 225/35
Rear 235/40

Nothing needs done to the grill, not chopping the carbon hood as that would loss resale value, what would u do to it?

The striping, not much else you can do to break up the black on black. Its subtle

Back is exacty where i want it. Front is fully functional without doing anything to the fenders. I did all this for the poke look, i love the look and people ahy away from it. Look up some miatas or cars like that and you will see the build style i copied.

I dont want to camber the front and jeopardize handling as i still run 17s when i go on runs

i probably wont be touching the fenders if i do, i may add a custum 1.5 fender to the front- only the front (for a different look, no on has) but other than that nothing. This was my vision once i realized what i wanted to do.

Below the rear is considered tucked for the look im going for and thats about as low as i can be without issues. The fronts can drop about 1/4 but what can you do. Im going for the poke look. The rounding of the tires makes the poke look how i want it.

The vision changed a bit as i progressed but i feels good to see the work and progress. Got really good at painting too haha finally feel like its done

Thanks for the extra pictures, can see whats going on the front much better. From afar, it was hard to tell, looked unfinished..my eye was just attracted to the missing badge. Hope you didnt take my comments as putting your car down, not trying to do that to anyone here Part of modding is to make the car look the way you want and i appreciate everyone has different goals. Those wheels are aggressive, thats for sure

My car is far more boring looking, only thing thats been done to the exterior is suspension/wheels for the most part. Here she is in winter mode from a few weeks ago:

Far from stock but mostly on the things you cant see.
