Default Hello!

hello miataturbo.net,
I became a member a few months back when I picked up a 1991 for a couple hundred dollars from a girl who ran it into her nieghbor. It was a light front end hit but it needed the works. Radiator support, fender, hood, bumper and a wholelotta bodywork. It had definately in an accident or 2 before and was repaired by those who lacked in the knowledge of bodywork (i removed more filler than i put back on). So over the past several months i took it all apart, made it nice nice, put it back together.. and as of 2 days ago its on the road. It still needs a couple adjustments here and there. I told myself i would wait until im driving it to put up the first post. I've had several cars in the past but im new to miata's and rwd. i've learned myself over the past months by abusing SEARCH and getting a good idea of what it takes from what all here have already accomplished. so hello! and i cant wait to dump those turbo dollas all over this little beeyotch

Your car reminds me of an unripened strawberry with a skin disease.

Thanks all. I know its not too pretty or boosted, but over the course of the summer it will take shape. I hope to find the time, and more important a place to spray it before the end of the month. Im thinking championship white or close variant. There's a hard dog double diagonal on its way. I have an emb sitting in the basement, but that might change. I would like to take care of suspension (springs, sways, bushings) before I throw a turbo on.
Found a pic of what it looked like when I first picked it up:Hello!-pic-0340.jpg
