Here comes a photo dump!


Received some carbon fiber goodies, coilovers, re-cleared my taillights, prepped and had the car painted in my garage, and assembled the body somewhat all before I left for my dependent!

Usually I would dog on someone that painted their car in a garage but this looks like it turned out well! It will need some sanding and buffing but every car does! Well done!

Appreciate it, my buddy painted it and he does it for a living so I wasn't too worries. I have just the guys to give it a cut and buff when I return. Then finally get the damn thing running. The mystery engine is in though, just need to finish the wiring and the interior. I'll have 2 weeks of R&R to do that!

Garage Paint FTW. My buddy painted his NSX, Supra, FD, and old Jeep in his garage and came out great. Was there ventilation outside of the door being open?

Does the front bumper not line up that much in the middle or is it just the pic?

Also, please put the front lip on! looks weird without it :-p.

Yeah JP did an amazing job for the atmosphere he was in. Nah, we just had the door propped, everything went well though.

All the panels aren't fully assembled and lined up yet. I also did have the hood pop attached so it was just propped. I literally threw the panels on shot some photos before the sun went down and 12 hours later left for my deployment lol. That's why I didn't have time for the lip either.

Well it certainly has been a LONG time since an update, might I add probably THE longest build ever.

Been currently working on integrating the factory RX-7 harness with the swapped engine harness and it has been a headache for sure. I've gotten the engine to turn over, HVAC has been wired, and lights have been wired. Working on eliminating the extra wiring and connectors that will not be used to make a final harness. Assembled the rear bumper and taillights to get the rear of the car back together.

Refurbished the entire HVAC system with new seals and padding on the blend doors, was actually a pretty easy job.

Now I've been working on the steering rack and plumbing the intake so I can actually start the engine. Photos of progress will be posted soon.
