so theres some stuff wrong with the car

interior is badly burnt
dash has crazy big cracks
driver side door stuck closed
3 tires bad
no key for ignition
i broke the driver side door handle (inside)
and brake lights dont work along with some other lighting
engine is supposedly blown (thats what the guy was told)

but overall this car was dirt cheap and its something i would like to work on and learn about rotary engines, so imma rebuild the engine and strip most of the interior, i got the driver side door to open so thats one problem down and i switched out 1 tire right here at my house which im really happy about and i will post pics of the tire i switched out but im really happy with this car and cant wait to mess with it some more

i decided that im not gonna have interior in the fc so i started taking off most of the panels and since the car was not covered from the sun, alot of parts got burnt from the sun and break as soon as its touched so i figured that it would be better for me to get rid of the panels and carpet and paint the outside red and the inside black with a black engine bay, i also started taking off some parts from the engine bay but i get off work late and have no time to work on it so i'll post pics later of the s**t getting ripped off and apart

i also took off the plastic steps and decided i would keep those and paint it black with the mazda logo in red

the dash........... not pretty at the moment but it dont bother me none haha

oem carpet, would have been cool to have full interior, too bad the sun burnt it but i dont plan on finding every piece of interior and wasting money on that
