Default Homebuilt up and running

Hello everyone, I have a 69 Datsun roadster with a Miata turbo powered transplant. I Just started it for the first time on MS today YAAAAAAAA. It took a while to start. I finally had to prime it with gas in order to get it to start but once started it ran pretty well. Then shut it off and it started hard but on its own. needs more tuning. Its really nice to have all the great posts to keep everyone going, Thanks. Can't wait to DRIVE IT.

Im not really computer savy not sure how to get pics on here? any good ideas on how to post. The Datsun was purchased about 9 years ago with a 1600 that was stuck, i rebuilt the motor but always hated the carbs really hard to start. so the Miata came along and It fit. The car is in the works, i gutted it and was working on the body work but the house remodel came along. still working on it, but only a little. I do have some recent pics I could use but need help posting. The exhaust manifold I bought is no good it fits t3 not t25 so off it comes. Im making my own dash to fit all the Autometer gauges I bought for it. Should be pretty sweet when completed. The datsun book says the roadster was about 1800 LBS so it should go like CRAZY!
