So the 4th cylinder was pretty much submerged in oil and the coolant was full of oil. Despite that the car ran well before I took it apart.

Had the head tested for leaks/cracks and resurfaced as well.

Besides some snapped bolts everyone went together pretty smoothly. Note to self, make sure you put the Cam position sensor on properly before trying to start the car. The damn thing bolted in perfect while upside down.

Alright time to tackle the hard top. Don't have the before pic of just the crack, but here it is after all the loose crap was cleared out.



After many coats of fiberglass (shortstrand) bondo and glazing putty at the end:



No more crack!

I'll be sanding down the primer and applying a few more coats to fill in any small scratches that may have been missed.

More pics to come, there are other places that were damaged as well

Also I have finally come up with a name for the lil green car: Mihater. Seems the miata gets a lot of hate from people who don't know anything. I believe it's quite fitting
