Default Pics of the car and questions. (who still has 56k?)

Alright so my car needs to look decent now that it is registered for the road. I took pictures of the condition its in now. Im going to get the body work started in couple of days by a local. I will be there helping him out. This car was put together by me as my project. It started with a pretty bare chassis. The motor came out of my other miata (1990) and it has 60,000 miles on it. I put 800 miles since i made my car drivable. So here some pictures. Yes i think my miata is the most ugly one so far, but please no bad comments.


Heres how it sits.

The long hose thats in that pic is what im talking about. (I dont think it counts as a bypass). I took out the heater core, so I ran that hose.
