I have had the itch to get a manual car and something with a soft top. So I finally found something that the wife would give the green light to. A 1990 Mazda Miata with 106k miles on it, a 1.6L Manual Trans Rear wheel drive go cart.
So some terrible pictures from the wholesaler place I got it:
Now the work begins:
The cam shaft gasket was completely hardened, like a rock, so that got replaced, hopefully no more oil leaking all over the place.
Off to the junk yard for some parts
Did an oil change, ran some Sea Foam through it, and installed a radio (it didn't have one at all...)
To Be Done:
Brakes - Rotors/Pads/Fluid
Ball Joint Boots
Remove Driver Seat (bolts are rusted through...)
New Passenger Front Wheel Bearing
New Spark Plugs and Wires
