Steve Brotman at http://americandreamsrestoration.com/ in Safety Harbor gave us a good deal on the color-change from black to GM "Bright Aqua Metallic", and it looks fantastic!

Is it perfect? No. But, they did take the time to fix all of the little dents and dings before painting. Did a great job of masking off the doors, hood and trunk for a clean cut line, removed everything that could be removed, and did a very nice spray. All for about $2600 out the door and they had it done in less than 2 weeks.

They used a super-high quality clear-coat, and we expect the whole thing to have no problem standing up to the 8 years that Cathy expects to keep this car.

We'll probably have a detailer go after some of the imperfections and smooth it out some more after it's cured for a month or so. As it stands, it looks nearly perfect from 5 feet away. You have to really look to find the issues. And Cathy doesn't care! She's finally got the Miata that she wanted in the color that Mazda wouldn't give her. The silver one that she drove for 7 years before this one wasn't perfect, either.

Super cool. I didn't realize she had replaced the previous Miata. ;)
