Default Baad 88's 91 Miata Ford build

Getting my parts in order so I can start when the nicer weather gets here.
88 5.0L and T5 with a 7.5 diff
Ordered Martins kit less K member and header. (having a custom K member made)
On the car itself I have put a new roof and leather seats from a 2004. Other than that it is stock but not for long.
Here are some pics for now. The car that gave it's heart
Rolling chassis is sold. (bonus)
Needs work

Mine was built about 2004 by one of the nicest guys in S. Ont. Just needed to certify and etest. Don't rush, get it right. Vic

I won’t be rushing. I figure if I’m going to do it I might as well do it right.

Kitchener! Wow, I’m only an hr away...near Grand Bend. Feel free to drop me a line. I built a ‘90 in my single car garage a couple winters ago.
