1984 Rx-7 Pictures. Worth looking at.

Hey guys,

I don't think i actually have ever posted pictures of my 1984 Rx-7. Its a 12A and I love it Tell me what you think of it. Its got fully built suspension. Polly bushings all around, Kyb shocks, Springs, complete exhaust and engine mobs. Lots of money in this beast.

i think it looks amazing! the only thing i'm not too keen on are the wheels. i personally think they look too big and take away from the car, but they are tasteful and clean so thumbs up! that imsa gtu kit is rare. is it original to your car?

HOT! i love the IMSA front. i bought the one ever made. its still in the box. i cant decide if i should install it or not. get some day time pics.

id say all you need is some of the "S5" tails night shaded and itll finish up the rear.

Nice looking car. Looks very clean. What size wheels and tires are thows. They look like 5 lugs did you change the suspension or use adapters?

That's got a nice stance. What kind of springs are you running?

go Havana Brown! not a huge fan of the wheels or targa band, but all in all i think you've done a wonderful job. you should be very proud of yourself.

OH man so many questions! I didn't think i would get this much hype. Thanks for all the comments guys. For one i personally like the wheels and targa band. They are 17" mono Ferrari edition wheels. 205 front and 215 rear fuzion ZRI rubber. They are four bolt and i had to get custom 1" spacers in the front and a 1/2" spacer in the rear to fit them. The rear tire actually tucks under the wheel well in the back As for the front air dam and the rear spoiler and targa band. Its all original to the car from purchase. This is why i have never removed it. It makes the car unique. This is also the reason i kept it brown. You don't see many brown ones around. And i personally like the colour. The tails you suggest i am not to sure i like ha. I am running suspention techniques for springs with KYB shocks. Full polly bushings kit. I think that raps up most of your questions.

Great to see another 'turd' brown 7. I have one sitting in the basement of the shop that is on of those 'down the road' projects. I actually like this color of brown. Please post some more daytime pics. When I get around to restoring mine, I will keep it the oem brown and install the Kaninari kit I have.

hmm what he hasn't said about the wheels is that he has a wheel sponsorship from one of the local tire shops ... thats why he's got good wheels ... these are some of the pics that he sent me before this with his old rims though, i like his new ones better.


Hope you don't mind me uploading these.

HAHAH my hacked up paint picture! Priceless! Owned by lewis Haah j/k. Well i did pay for the wheels just not full prices The guy that owns the business is a friend so i don't consider it a sponsor as much. But i do promote his business at shows and stuff. Although i won't on this site, do to the vender's and stuff.
