Default n00b!!!

My buddies gave me a 1991 na. No interior. No top. No front driver fender. Motor runs strong at 180k miles and has new 6 puck clutch and resurfaces flywheel. Sounds pretty bad right? Wrong. Picked up everything I needed for under $500. $300 for back tags and i'll have a Miata for $800. Not bad right? Lol
Ive got some plans including mild body and engine mods. In the end ill b sitting about 180hp and something that looks cool. As long as the motor doesn't blow

Total n00b myself, but PLEASE forget the body mods for now and put any penny you can scrounge up into performance. Engine, brakes, suspension... You don't see the body mods once you sit in it, but you CAN feel the boost!

Trust me I need body mods. The cars in rough shape so im ordering what I need yo stiffen it up. Drop it. Then the body and then the engine work will begin. The only reason im going a little backwards is because of paint. Ill b painting it myself and im too lazy to do it twice
