I am going for the black brake fluid mod. I am working on swapping on the 1.8 calipers so I'll do a fluid flush when I get to it. :(

Hey guys I bought a $2500 Miata and it's in the shape of.. A $2500 Miata! :)

Were those pictures taken last Fall or are you just that lazy?

:p

So, it won't start or it won't turn over and stay running?

What exactly is this thing you have created?

I don't have a hood prop so I use a broom handle. I am going to rig up some gas props for it some day.

I didn't seal this paint so it's going to chip off in a few weeks, I learned a thing or two about my cammo pattern, I am going to shave off the raised letters and repaint it 100x better next month for TAMPA VS ORLANDO.

What happens when I try to start it: It does about 1/2 a turn over and then I hear a fast click click click click. All I have done is replaced the valve cover gasket and I got a new coil pack to replace my melted one. :(

Yeah, clicking can mean that there are not enough cranking amps to get the starter going.

Starters very rarely go bad on Miatas.

Will, I've got a battery that is most likely good. I replaced it thinking it was bad, but instead I had a short that was draining the new battery too!

If you put a charge on it, I think it would be good to go.
