1st gen Rx7 Restoration
While scrounging a junkyard for parts, I found an old rusted out shell of an FB. Bought it, trailered it home, and stuck some steelies on it so I can roll it around the shop. Seems like it's been crashed, but luckily no damage to the fram. Pics!

Got some primer on it finally.

Any ideas on where I should go with this? I'm considering using a replica of the old race kits they had on these Big Grin

See: my rally RX-7 or do an homage to vintage IMSA racers

Had a thought today to make the rear end look cleaner, I took this black panel...

And painted it body color. Pretty satisfied with the results!

Sorry for the long wait, the FB had to go on the back burner for a while... Anyway, I did manage to get the rear flares fitted/painted.

Today was a very big day for the FB. Loaded it onto a trailer and brought it down to a friend of mine's shop for paint. I decided to go with BRG.

After the paint dried, brought the car home and fitted the CCW LM20s that came.
