Yes there will be some mounting holes underneath there also may be a little surface rust as well from water getting under the band if you are careful taking it off it is a very sellable item, even if you break a piece or 2 I know where there are a couple of spare pieces.

As to if someone made a true targa Rx7 that would be petty enterprizes back in 79-80 time frame there were ads for it and write ups in the old rotary rocket magazine. that would be a true TARGA 7

Your car looks nice bo, I like your wheels and the disks poking through. I think I perfer the body molding to contrast the body color but that's a personal thing. She looks good! Is the interior black or red?

Is that a 110MM X 8 bolt pattern? Looks like you just used every other mounting hole.

I've got some 3 piece panasport racing rims that are done the same way they have both the standard 12a pattern then the alternate holes are the GSL-SE pattern i would have prefered them with only one set of holes but when you are swapping suspension and rear end components makes rim selection really easy

Thread dead for 9 years?? Oh well, post anyway!

My 1985 RX-7 with that Targa-7 top. I'm very fond of this little car. Getting her tinted tomorrow.
