• A New Beginning: YouTube, Corner Balanced, AE86, and G-Wagen

    Lots of NEWS in this one! Please give it a thorough read, as this will likely be my final post on Grand Mighty. For nearly an entire decade, I have maintained and written articles for Grand Mighty. I wrote on a couple of similar websites prior, even, but those have since been dissolved and the […]

  • The Saga Ends

    For 5 years, I held firm to the notion that I would keep this RX-7 and, thus, I built it with the freedom that comes with having no expiration. My goals reached ever higher on a continuous basis. I kept firm to an unwavering vision of building the ultimate street RX-7. That kind of persistence […]

  • Ceramic Coating with Auto Werks Detailing

    After having the car sit in the garage for the better half of a year, I was sick of seeing it in a constantly dusty state. I was also sick of having to detail and wax a black car, which is laborious and quite the uphill battle. Instead of pulling out the random orbiter and […]

  • Passenger Door Card Furnishing

    The last piece to trickle in from oCarbon was the passenger trim around the grip handle on the door card. A number of compound curves in this area made it particularly difficult to wrap over and get right. All in all, the entire process to get all of my interior pieces finished in carbon fiber […]

  • Car Shop GLOW Version 4 LED Tail Lights

    Better late than never – I am going to try and knock out a few remaining updates that I have been behind on. There is a reason to the recent inactivity, which I will address later. I am at a point now where I am satisfied with the RX-7. Bugs that irked me have been […]

  • Updated Mod List

    Hey! Long time no see. I have been swamped lately and just don’t have the capacity to sit and update this website. Hopefully, I will fall back into a more predictable rhythm soon and I can announce some news. Until then, I wanted to take the opportunity to make current my RX-7’s mod list. The car […]

  • Door Lock Replacement & Mig Welding

    While in the middle of my drive last weekend, I discovered that my passenger door lock had annoyingly committed suicide out of the blue. I was able to lock it with my key just fine, however, when I went to go unlock it half an hour later, the key oddly wouldn’t insert anymore. The key […]

  • In the Neighborhood

    I went on an encompassing tour of the Bay Area with Mike last Saturday, with the drive culminating in a last minute destination to Alice’s in Woodside. By the time we left and reached arrived back to my neighborhood, the sun was starting to set… which meant that the Golden Hour was upon us and […]

  • Carbon Fiber Gauge Cluster & MOMO Mod 88 Steering Wheel

    Although I received my gauge fascia piece with oCarbon’s first completed batch back in January, I couldn’t actually install it. The fascia needed to be connected together with the hood piece, and then the entire cluster could be mounted into the car. Waiting for the completion of the hood was tantalizing and elicited feelings of […]

  • Alignment and Oil Change

    Inexplicably, and for the first time in what seems like forever, I have been driving the car more than I have been working on it. The feeling is bizarre. This also explains why I’m behind on the posts. A couple weekends ago, I took the car out for an errand day and knocked out items […]

  • Blue Tinted, Convex Gandador Lenses Installed

    Sorting out the glass situation for the Ganadors has been a long journey. I first went to a semi-local glass shop to attempt the task of making blue tinted and convex mirrors for me. These guys were the only ones in the area willing to give it a shot, due to their experience making custom […]
