So I picked this raggedy beast up for $500 and now it's time to start building her up, haven't done anything major yet, just cleaned up the throttle body and threw it on, replaced brake pads, I need to do alot of other little things... But I've got big plans for Mia(; anyways here's some
Pix of what im working with and a vid I took after I tuned her up, who knew that little 1.6 could sound so
Beastly? Lol

What the... Single carb? Can you get better pictures? I have only seen dcoe carb setups, where there is an individual carb per intake port.

Looks like a regular 1.6 intake manifold and throttle body sitting there to me? Just the intake tract, air box, and amf is removed.

You are right stormin. In the OP he said tune the carb, I saw the throttle body pointing up and thought WTF?

I don't think you have a carburetor, that is a throttle body and your car is fuel injected.

Possibly. XD

Did the car come with the hardtop? If so nice score and good luck breathing some life back into it.
The car originally had a soft top, previous owner didn't like that, so they threw it away an bought the red hardtop, lol

So. I'm having trouble deciding on color ideas, because I'm not leaving it white\gray with a red hard top.

So I want peoples opinion on this:

should I paint the car an entirely different color?(red,black,blue,etc)

Should I paint the hard top color match white?

Or should I paint the top color match grey?

No, I mean 13's, the fronts are 14's, but the set that came with car, the ones on the back, are 13's, wrapped in racing slicks.

They look pretty nice, those Hoosiers definitely look pinched on there haha.

Do you have any idea what kind of wheels they are? They look kind of like Rota RB's.

That they are, they are so
Pinched, you can't tell they have almost 0 air pressure in that pic

And I have no clue... All I know is they are tiny and hidious. Lol but I plan to keep them for my first couple of track runs.
