    Angry Orchard

    So decided Id start a thread for my Miata so that I can keep track of its progress.



    Scooped for $750 with only 69k miles on this bad boy.





    Paints a little rough, fender and door have some damage but everything else looks good.



    As soon as I got the car home I cleaned up the engine bay. Also deleted the charcoal canister, some wiring, and the intake manifold bracket.











    Did some basic stuff. Engine oil, diff oil, trans oils, plugs and wires



    Also changed out the radiator cap for this super awesome vatozone cap.



    Decided on doing the bumper cut. Looks crooked but later I fixed it and straightened it out with the dremel.







    Went junkyard diving and scooped a driver side fender.

    Nice - hard to go wrong with a $750 car. Do you still have your black Miata?
