final decision is to make rx-7 base longer... but price ~1400pounds for the job + materials doun\'t put smile on my face....

so back to business, I\'ve decided to save money, to save rx-7 base and even almost to save RX-4 shell
 
so here we go finaly cutted and ready to put on new sheel, this will be this week
 

 
then I\'ll make longer from fibre glass new fends and new hood
for the moment I\'ve stick fenders to FC

here is my idea. to move whole shell a little bit in to front as shown in picture below(sorry had no time to install photo shop - paint rulezzz :D )

 
so I understood that I need more cuting on rx-7,
I\'ve disconected brakes, clutch, that some mazda wires and I\'d like to finish cuting this week if some will turn on the electricity :)

My RX4 has 2 front and 2 rear, they fit near the front of the wings are used as indicators.

This is an amazing project, keep up the great work
