Default Newb: 90' Miata Revival. Semi Long Post.

So back in the summer of last year I had gotten tired of my supercharged 2007 Civic Si. I decided to take everything off and return it to stock. I sat on the parts for a few months and finally posted them on my forums when I was ready to make moves. Unbelievably some kid from New Jersey says he will trade me 1,000 cash and a miata for the SC. Well I jumped all over the deal and that is where,my miata revival project began. The car arrived in semi rough shape with three different colors and an unmanaged, non-intercooled, 4 lsi greddy bolt on turbo kit. I fixed a boost line going straight into the crankcase and installed manual crank windows since his power ones didnt work. I plan on swappung in my buddies 1.8 and using the somewhat new 15g turbo the kid had put on. I also bought a hardtod, temp tein springs (for 50 bucks), and temporary wheels for the time being. Here is the one decent picture I have so far. Full paint job coming soon haha.

Ought to be cheap fun, and a good looker once it's painted. Color choice? And what wheels are those?

Wow i have no idea how i managed to misspell so many words in my initial post. That put aside i plan on keeping the miata the Mariner Blue it originally was. As for the wheels i bought them off of a buddy off his integra. They are drag wheels i'm not sure the exact name of the model but they were a good deal for the dunlop direzzas they have on them. I'm not sure what i'm going to run for the track but i'd like a lightweight setup. For the time being i'm focused on getting a custom turbo manifold made for the 1.8 and touching up the little things it needs such as headrest speakers, door speaker covers, shift boot, radio faceplate, etc. Hope to gain a lot of knowledge on this forum, thank you for the response.
