Default Newbie for Greece, Red '97 NA

Hi, name's Peter, I am from Greece, and I own a red '97 NA miata.

The car was in terrible condition whenI bought it, and it's even worse now :P

First mods included a single diagonal roll bar made from a local company (I think its design is a copy of some known rollbar fabricator, but I don't know whose), BC type BR coilovers, which were cheap enought to afford at the time, and not quite as bad as TA Technix or equivalent, and some fresh tyres (Bridgestone Turanza in 195/50/15, on my 15x7j Team dynamic Wheels), the only ones available where I live.

Then some cosmetic stuff (Revlimiter Gauges, KG works gauge panel, KG works mirror, na6 dash swap) and some smaller stuff.

Currently the car has entered hibernation mode, it's sleeping for the winter. Plans include forged internals, a turbo (probably a 2554 or 2560) and a respray, not everything at once, though.

Pics will follow soon.

During one of the phases the car went through


Treating it for the rust situtation it had.



And the start of the tear down, to get her rebuilt.
