Default what to do.

So i traded my 20g turbo for a big 16g and $500 cash. My question is do I take the $500:

+Buy a hard top (soft top has a small leak)
+Start to build the turbo kit (use big 16g)
+Get some good seat (Ugly off white)
+Save for good coil overs
+Sell the big 16g and buy a greddy kit.

What do you guys think the best move would be? Im leaning to the hard top. There is two here in austin that are the same color as my car listed for $800 so i might be able to get one of them for $500ish. Or build the turbo set up. Driving a stock miata is slow as *****.

**** if you can get a hardtop for 500, go for it. Around here I tried to buy one for 3 months before I gave up. The best price I could find was like 900 and I said **** that.

Yeah, if you can get a hard top for that price, buy it, then sell it for 1200. That seems to be a good buy lately, but 500 is a god damn steal.

I rarely use my hard top, but its nice when either really cold, or really hot, and you still want to drive the car.
