I do feel it NEEDS the spacers, the look is too far off on the offset and it really detracts from the look. Hence the OEM "PLUS"
A little lower, a little wider, a little faster.
I say a 10mm up front and a 20mm in the rear and 1/4"lower and you are in dream territory.
I think those numbers are pretty close to what would look ideal, whenever I get some brake parts and am working on that part, it may be a consideration

Thanks, there was some dust on it for sure. Between the painting of the car, the ceramic coating, the PPF etc I was letting the car cure a bit for the last few months. Just finally got to give her a bath last weekend.

Because I haven't spent enough on her this year, here is one last part before the end of the year


Also, here are the reupholstered RZ seats installed

Man that looks great.

Ever thought about updating the steering wheel?

Should have something coming in the mail soon, I thought I was done buying parts for the year.


These finally showed up, 7+ months after ordering. Just need to set aside a little bit of time for install! Excited to see the increased night time visibility

I see you’re the one who scooped up that steering wheel in the for sale section not too long ago. Very nice piece! Could you do a comparison shot of the size of the steering wheels between the newer style and old? I’ve been on the fence with getting one. I’m 6ft and I have to get into my 7 in a particular way because there isn’t tilt wheel :P I wanna know if the slightly smaller wheel will help alleviate that some.

Hi Matt,
I actually first saw my 94 Rx7 in Surprise (former owner was in Glendale), your neck of the woods. I will be out that way in about a week as well. Anyway, here is a pic of the two wheels side by side. Haven't done any driving yet with the new one as just put in on tonight. Hope this helps.
