thought id get some proper pics up.
« on: May 07, 2011, 12:15:45 PM »
Since joining i haven\'t really been very active as im slowly learning about the fd and dont want to sound like a complete noob when i give my two pence lol, somehow i think i managed to re set the boost controller and although iv tried setting it up myself its an absolute ball ache so its going into re worx on tuesday to be set up properly lol.
Since purchasing the car i have had to fit a new battery, managed to source an alarm sounder for my laserline alarm which is 10 years old and change the horrible old headunit out. Also im after a set of rear upper, outer bushes if anyone can point me the right direction?seen a set of powerflex ones on ebay for about £45. Im waiting for an nrg quick release hub to arrive which should hopefully make it easier to get in and out of lol, and will probably be swapping my steering wheel for a sparco pro one soon so if anyone wants my nero one than give me a shout.




























sorry for all the pics lol;)

very nice,  that is one of the best fitting front ends I have seen on an FD.  The only addition i would add if it were mine is a set of Feed side steps,  i really like that look but they are very subtle.

That\'s the way to do it! :Thumbsup!

thanks alot for the comments, unfortunately i Cant say its my own work but i have learnt by previous car how much it costs to modify and this is the only rx7 i would have bought as i know how well its been looked after.  plan to put my own personal touch to it though.

What do you think some feed style skirts in carbon fibre would look like? Also might getsome 18\'s to fill the arches more, probably a set of works alloys.

I quite like the wheels you\'ve already got on it! But that\'s just my opinion. :)

Like Lacey said i\'d keep the wheels, maybe just lower it a little if you can and a big YES to the FEED skirts. They look so good with standard body cars. I\'d even put them on mine if it wasn\'t so much work to get my skirts off and resrpay the area again :D

whats the best way to attach them?people have mentioned using self tappers but i really dont to put holes in the body lol. I would like to lower it around another 10mm but as im sure you all know the front lip is a nightmare lol, also where the join has been filled it has now cracked so i need to get the lip resprayed. Another thought on the wheels was to get them re furbed(original colour) and change the blue lip for a black one and get some purple internal drive nuts, anyone recommend a good place to get some?

Also will you guys have a stand at japfest this year?
