Well this is my first real build and im doing it with a car I have wanted for a long long time.. .to give a little background I have a 91 red Miata with 87000 miles on it. . no rust got it for a great deal and I see this car becoming something truly amazing one day. .so lets get into it.

I eventually will make a list of what I want and what my future plans are with this car as of right now there are endless possibilities with this which makes me change my decision daily. . so well just start with the small stuff.

A week after getting the car I plastidipped the wheels just to get a better look then the stock beat up gray hubs I originally started with.

When I bought the car during the test drive the brakes went to the floor, which I didn't really think much of just because I knew the parts would be rather cheap for a Miata and I was willing to do the research to find it and fix the problem.. . So needless to say it came out to being the brake caliper on my driver rear side.. .it was not really a hard fix just a few bolts that needed to be taking off here and there and brake lines that needed to be taken out and everything. . I'm sure at the end of the day I just needed to replace the seals but I just said hey its $140 bucks to do both rear sides so I just did it that way instead which ended up being the problem.

a couple weeks after having that problem fixed I started to get more into the cosmetic side of my car which I bought a tougerun front lip and spoiler which were relatively easy to do after about an hour of work and trying to drill here and there I got both of them to work out and I feel fine with them I know some people aren't a fan but I prefer them. .I have recently tried to plastidip my door handles they didn't come out as clean as I had hoped so I took it all off, but I did replace my driver side beltline molding and my center console piece since they were pretty fugly from the start but nothing crazy. . all fluids have been takin care of thanks to Amsoil great stuff

Nothing really to post about I have no money right now but jus replaced simple things like the interior lights to LEDs .. I also put a cubby in about my radio finally but still not flush yet ..

Future plans :
Coilovers
Tires and wheels
1.6L turbo set up
Paint job
Suspension for days
Steering wheel
Eventually start my 1.8L build
And much more .. Once I get my first check or two from my new employer I will be dropping some fat stacks

looking good so far what coilovers are you going to go with?


and if you haven't already read this http://www.miata.net/garage/crankshaft.html
Honestly have no idea as of right now before I got this car I was heavily involved in getting set up for an sti buy but i got a miata ... I saw some Megan racing ones that seemed to be decent from what I have read but if you suggest something else I'll can always take a look... And very interesting read that I have not read yet .. I have the short one so I need to get along one clearly

Not to far at all .. And that's pretty shitty at least they didn't just break the window and try and take your ht I would have been more pissed if that was gone that's for sure haha .. But right now I honestly don't have much to install until I get paid in 2 more weeks sadly
