That's what I figured, I knew the prep work takes forever in not worried about putting the work
Looks like it came out clean either way

Guessing you didnt do inside engine bay and right corners and such

Nope, and wouldn't recommend it. Pull the signals, tails, and other small bits. Keep it simple.

Going to get cracking on the S13's once cash isn't such a headache.

Teaser shot. We've had way too much snow in the 215 this year.

Alright guys...

Clubphillyb members will get first dibs. Car is more than likely going to be listed "FOR SALE" as early as tomorrow. Price will still be OBO out of respect to everyone interested.

The Good:
66,xxx miles
Minimal undercarriage damage
Semi-adult owned
Clean carfax (will be provided)
New rear calipers, rotors, fluid, and brake pads
New clutch master and slave cylinder with new DOT 3 fluid
New radiator
New thermostat
New accessory belts
All working interior lights and accessories
A/C system in complete working condition. (Never used. Likely needs recharge)
Drives great
Mobil One full synthetic every 3,500 miles
New Pioneer headunit and door speakers
Title in hand

The Bad:
Plastidip isn't for everyone
Single stage paint removed. (both a good and bad thing i guess)
Fairly clean body for being 25 years old. But, it's not 'perfect'
Carpet removed
Soft top removed
1.6 short nose... if you think that's a bad thing.
Factory drivers seat installed. Passenger side removed for my home boy Derek.
Scuffed hood for the ladies.
Missing splash shield

Again, my loss is your gain. I will make this available to phorum members first, then the FB groups can fight over it.

I just spent 5 hours up the road and moved out of my previous garage, and into another amazing space.

It's 4:15am and I'm still wired.

Miatas are amazing to say the least.... I realized I can't live without one in my life.

Phucking Kenjo from GS messaged me and I couldn't stop talking to him. Such a killer dood. :hebrew:

Here's his Rad Roadster blog. http://radroadsters.wordpress.com/

Well, I need help everyone....

Trying to decide what wheels to put on the silverstone NA and the emerald NB.

Already have a set of 6UL's to put on either of the above listed.

What does everyone like? I'm thinking green or purple on the silver NA, and gold or purple on the green NB. Please help!

Perhaps the 6UL's go on the NB and some Turbo magic on the NA?

.... or turbo wheels on the NB and 6UL's on the NA?

Same here.

I just can't justify paying $270 US per wheel....

So, I'm gonna pull the trigger on a cheaper knockoff.

Alright. Things are going to crazy quickly.

Sold all of the 1.6 turbo parts and megasquirt.
Found a car to flip, or donate a 1.8 drivetrain with torsen into project Corky.
The donor car would then get my low mileage 1.6 and open rear.

Unless... any of you can tell me why I should keep the short nose 1.6 where it is meow.

So far this is what I've found.
1994 1.8 had a towing 'mishap'. The passenger side frame rail has a 8" tear near the front. Likely a hook up error using a winch. Drivers side front took a minor deer hit. Easy to fix, and I found the necessary parts, except for the fender, the day I bought it.
Person selling it did some ugly work on the car. Crap header, EGR cut and resealed, P/S belt removed for no reason..... simple stuff that helped me get the price down.

My 1990 is super clean, and I know the history. But, I have yet to do the timing belt and check the short nose keyway. If I pull the drivetrain and swap with the 1994, I can install the turbo kit right away.... or just fix the 1994.

Please chime in! I'd love to hear as much feedback as possible.

If it was up to me, I'd pull the 1.8 and goodies, build up and drop into your clean 90 then drop in the 1.6 and sell the 94. While the engine is out do the timing and check the crank. Easy as pie.

Generally speaking if the crank key in a short nose has not failed in 24 years of life it wont fail. But still something to note if they buyer knows anything of these cars.
