Things accomplished since the last update:

Mirrors, door moldings, fender moldings, side skirts. and front lip have all been installed.

Wet sanding, polishing, glazing, sealing, and waxing. For now, this paint job is as good as it's going to get. There are many imperfections, but it's a solid 10-footer.

All exterior lighting has been installed - headlights, FTP lenses, turn signals, fog lights, sidemarkers, taillights and third brake light.

Rear emblems have been painted silver (or "aluminum", whatever the can said it was) and clipped in.

The hatch lock cylinder has been installed, as well as the hatch opening mechanism. No more reaching in through the third brake light hole to pull the rods!

Moldings around the hatch have been replaced, as well as the hatch to body seal. The sunroof seal has also been installed.

And now for pictures to tell the story...

This has been an AMAZING restoration thread!!! I can't wait to see how this car turns out. I did check the website you suggested, leather seats.com and they do not have a listing for an S4 RX-7 sadly. Was your set a custom order?

Thank you all for the kind words. I've been out of town the past two weekends, but should be back at it soon.

A quick update:






I'm about halfway done with the driver's side door. Wiring harness, window regulator, window, inner door handle, and all latching and locking mechanisms have been installed along with new door seal, window channel, and outer window seals. Next up is to get this far on the passenger door, before wiring in window switch relays, putting in new speakers, sealing it all up and finishing with the interior door panels.
