big update with a lot of pictures that were missing so far... ENJOY! ;)


fitted all the ORIGINAL windows



redone all the wiring


engine bay starting to get filled


sound proofed the entire car with Dynamat and added heat resistant Dynaliner






took the car out for a quick peek




started on the interior



Retrosound Model 2 radio, modern tech with classic looks



dash all back together again and fitted my rare Mazda RX-3 SP steering wheel


Custom gauges looking awesome



Made a nice system from parts i still had lying around, fits perfect in the spare wheel well





upholstered the entire boot and fitted my NOS rear cover panel



overhauled the wheels py polishing and machining the center



Bridgestone RE002 tires and fitted my NOS centercaps


looks awesome! yes, front is too low and front tires too wide



so i fitted some narrower tires and raised the car a bit

Sorry for the long delay in updates.
i have to sit down for this with my laptop which is rare for me to do :blush:

long story short:

car doesnt run yet, few technical bits need to be sorted before i can try and start it.
the exterior is finished and i gave it a good clean and polish last weekend.
next weekend is the 20th anniversary of the Dutch RX-7 club where it will be put up for display

pics of the final result:













hopefully not too long before i can start making some video's ;)

lets blow off the dust...

car has been finished and registered in 2016, got the new engine registered aswell so it is all legal.
engine starts and runs fine, just needs some tuning.

and then life took a turn when i suddenly sold my apartment way sooner then expected.
we bought a new house, and i proposed to my girl and ofcourse she said yes! :)

last couple of months i have only been working in and around the house, havent even been to my garage in a while...

next week ill probably get the car out of storage to get it running well, so i can do a decent burnout on my wedding in July ;)
