    As a great man once said, "Some of you I know, some of you I am meeting for the first time." As the username implies, I am inked, I inspect shit, my name is Travis. I have spent entirely too much of my life on Mazdaspeed forums and doing Nator shit. You're now caught up.

    Why am I posting this thread? Because as the title states, I caught the gays and bought a Miata. Specifically I bought a 2018 Club with the Recaro/BBS/Brembo package. But wait, you are saying to yourself, this is a mazdaspeed forum and that is not a boosted Miata. My response, have you seen the bull shit-ass forums that are out there for Mazdas? I cannot keep up the church boy act for more than about 5 fucking minutes, and they don't look kindly on that shit.

    Plans? Well to be honest with you, not much for now. A little down the road, maybe more. Depends on what I do with the speed (torn between offloading it or refreshing it, it's a tired bitch with 115k hard ass miles). To start I am having paint protection film installed next week, hardcore right? Apparently the paint on this thing is as close to quality as Bruce Jenner is to being an attractive woman. I just bought it, it's new, I want it to look half decent, so film it is. Tossed some weathertechs in arleady...getting spicy I know, and I may get wild and have a wooden shift knob made.

    Jokes aside, I have never driven a RWD car even remotely aggressively. I see no reason to tinker with this thing until I can half ass drive it as it sits. I am going to auto X it a few times this season, and once I get comfortable with it, who knows where I'll go with it. IMG-6892.JPG IMG-6942.JPG IMG-6974.JPG

    For the Miata you might get a full paint correction / ceramic coat done before you do paint protection film. 100% worth it.

    It goes in Monday for paint correction, both the installer and detailer did not recommend ceramic prior to the Xpel install, they said the film does not bond well to it, some people choose to do it after the fact. The detail guy actually did not recommend ceramic at all, but I've heard arguments for and against it.

    How you been my fellow beard aficionado?

    Ahh I didn't think about the ceramic screwing up the adhesive.
