3rd generation RX-7's / FD shell offer.....
« on: April 14, 2015, 05:20:54 PM »
Well after several years out the game I've been offered an FD rolling shell for pretty much free. Needs an engine. No engine in it at all. I've been looking across a couple of FD forums gauging engine prices.

I don't have a lot of details of the car. It was literally a conversation about my mechanics current car collection and he said that shell you can have, needs an heart rate hasn't been the same.

I'm hoping to get across this week to review bodywork, see what items are missing and go from there.

What's the options engine wise? Get one from a breaker and fit it? Purchase a complete rebuilt engine? Hoping to fit the engine and get the car running on my own.

General Technical / Compression results...
« on: June 13, 2010, 07:24:37 PM »

I may be coming back to the fold if/when I can get my S2000 sold.

I\'ve been checking out various FD\'s that have been for sale over the past couple of months. I had requested the results of a recent compression test and this is what I got back

Front Chamber 92psi, 93 psi, 97psi
Rear Chamber 92psi, 97psi, 100 psi

Knowledgable advice anyone? He didnt say what rpm these were done at. I had a couple of FD\'s over the past 5/6 years but i\'ve always had test results using a proper rotary compression checker (thats my technical name for it lol)

3rd generation RX-7's / modding advice...
« on: January 23, 2007, 09:46:33 AM »
Hi all

Looking for some modding advice and what order to do it in.

Car needs a respray (bodywork fading, dent on bonnet), new wheels (standard 16") and new suspension (leaky dampener). I want the car resprayed it\'s original colour and laquered, i\'m sourcing wheels from Japan and i\'m going to purchase tein super street suspension, with top mounts. Eventually i\'d like a subtle bodykit and spoiler. Should i wait, save up some dosh and buy bodykit, then respray whole car? Respray car then spray and fit bodyparts in a years time say...leave body work and buy and fit wheels/suspension...decisions,decisions....

What order should i do it in??? What am i to do?

Here\'s my thoughts...

The bonnet has a ding in it with the paint flaked off, about the size of a 10p, thinking i could replace the bonnet (as its very upsetting seeing an fd in this condition), complete the suspension and wheels. I would polish the car using the megauirs three stage stuff and see how it looks. Headlight covers and bumper are a little faded...suggestions?

Thinking of having a carbon fibre rear spoiler, bonnet and those sweeeeeet Feed carbon sideskirts once i\'ve saved some dosh and get the car resprayed..

What you think??

Again, i\'ve checked ebay, and found a couple of carbon fibre bonnets for the FD. Good quality you think? Any ideas where i can purchase them from (without costing the earth)

Also, i found this website

and have registered, seems decent and i\'m looking at bbs 17" wheels for a cheap fix at the moment,

what you guys think? Anyone used their website and purchased items?

Saying that i quiet like the idea of gold wheels on a silver car, maybe gold with polished lip...

FD needs new insurance as of the 8th Feb, can people list companies that will offer classic insurance on a 93 fd

I\'ve done a search but only really throws up Hertiage.

Preferrably online quotes please,
