Probably said it somewhere, but yes faces were powder coated in graphite and lips/barrels have the regular polished finish with double dark tint (DDT) on top. The wheels look gunmetal in person and the faces have a bit of metal flakes them.


Alright I'm a week late but I think it's never too late to drop the heat!

My kit idea is getting closer to reality every day now

Phase 1

Phase 2

Big improvement over phase 1!Shaved down material to get smooth curves on the front lip, also mocked up of the center extension to match the bumper's nose. Oil cooler vents ended up sharper and more squarish after we cut and modified the bumper's length in phase 1, so we fixed that and went back to a shape that looks more like the original shape of the FEED bumper (see vent on your right side, pic 3).

magic happened and we entered phase 3......

Phase 3

Now this is how I had envisioned the bumper from the moment I got the idea of doing this over 3 years ago. Let me tell you it looks good in pictures, but you cannot grasp the character it gives the car and how impressive it looks in person, pictures simply don't do justice to the magnificence of this new bumper. It flows perfectly with the subtle yet incredible body lines of the legendary RX-7. Definitely gives it an updated look with an exotic touch. The side line that starts where bumper and fender meet was altered to go inward from top to bottom of the bumper and roll under in order to match the original tapered shape of the car.
The bumper oil cooler openings were extended and re-shaped to go all the way back, acting as proper ducts, letting absolutely no air escape for maximum cooling efficiency. The green tape you see is there because we still need to make minor adjustments to this specific zone, it needs to be a little bit thicker in that area then gradually fading going toward the sides, the main goal is to eliminate the line going across the center opening given by the the slope going up to match the radiator.

Next up we're going to fix all the gaps around the car.

Here you can see my side diffusers idea... it's from the FRS rocket bunny V1 kit, we are going to adapt the design to the FD, but we still need to make side skirts to extend/lower the car's body to match the front bumper and front lip. (Btw I'm sure most of you have seen the famous

Not done yet for today!

here you can see another picture of the beautiful +50mm Chargespeed rear over-fenders, they fit super good out of the box.

but.......... since I wanted to run 0 camber in the rear and go super low, they were simply not going to cut it and I knew I had to make them wider... A couple cuts later and a bit of fiberglass work I now have fenders around 90-100mm wide and the best part is they make the car look WIDE AS F*** but they also blend so good with the body and lines of the car that once molded and painted, I bet it will look as if the car came out like this from factory!

Not bad at all!!
While you at it for the rear fender,
you should have make it abit more wider and not letting the wheel tyre seating inside under the fender too much. That just my thought
Because I'm not a big fan of seeing tyre rubber hiding under the fender.

I agree with this. If your making a wide body make it wide enough for proper tires. Pulled tires make no sense if your putting all this work into it. JMO.

Stretches tires is a legit style, and makes plenty of sense because it's a personal preference. To get the rim lip right next to the fender lip is the goal, for the optimal look.

We would be riding around in square functional boxes, with square tires if not for style.

Thanks a whole lot guys! I'm sure as you can tell... I'm going all with this project and I'm honored to receive so many good comments and pms about the car/kit.

I'll be honest, cups don't work the way I expected them to. Since I run crazy stiff and short springs, I had to cheat in order to get anything at all out of them from aired out to aired all the way up. Basically, if you want to get a good range of motion you need long and soft springs, the range you get is determined by how much the suspension squats from the car's weight.

Exactly, tire stretching is a style just like any other styles out there. I'm doing it this way for now simply because this is how I wanted the car to sit when I first envisioned it. I will eventually move back to a square functional setup with the car sitting just on top of the tires. I already have plans for this, I will most likely go with 285/30 and 295/30 or 315/30 R-compound tires.

Terribly sorry buddy! I try to post on here only when I have enough good content to keep my posts interesting for y'all.

However, time has come for a little update

Let's start it with a little before and after rear shot.

Higher shot, you can kinda get an idea of how wide the car actually is (about 200mm wider from side to side).

All gaps around the car are now even. One stupidly long job, but I'm one of those who believe that beauty lies in the details!

Bumper, front lip, fenders (F/R) and rear diffuser are done. Now working on the skirts and side diffuser to complete the kit. Today I'm showing you phase 1, I should have pics of adapted and finished skirts + side diffusers later this week!

Let me tell you the car might look amazing in pictures, but this beast is on a totally different level in person! I'm not saying this because it's my car and vision but I truly believe that the kit stays true to the original idea and lines of the FD3S while making it a meaner, more exotic-like updated version of the timeless car the RX-7 is.

In any case, you guys can see for yourselves. Here's my car in its latest state, enjoy!
