• M2 / Raceshop Roll Bar

    My tenured, rollercoaster history of roll bars in this car is a great showcase of persistence and a stubbornness of accepting nothing less than right. The original owner installed an Autopower roll bar and left me open holes that needed patching. I instead filled them by installing an Autopower bar of my own. Its overall […]

  • 80s Style

    It’s been a while since I’ve played around with Photoshop and today I developed an itch to get a little creative. I gave one of the pictures of my RX-7 an 80s inspired vaporwave / distorted VHS effect.

  • Plastics4Performance Lexan Rear Windshield

    The defroster lines on the rear glass were always distracting to me and an aesthetic element that I wanted to improve. Trying to mask them with dark window tint is not only ineffective but not preferable because I removed all of the tint on the car purposely to achieve a clear, greenhouse look. I knew […]

  • oCarbon Part II

    I’ve been waiting with bated breath for these carbon fiber pieces to finish, but it’s difficult to rush handmade, custom projects like this. oCarbon recently sent me more pictures of the progress, which I am always excited to receive. It appears that they are working on the trim in separate pieces or phases, because not […]

  • Alcantara Rear Quarter Trim & Sound Upgrades

    After removing the Miracle Cross Bar, the large, rear quarter trim panels would no longer suffice because they were modified and drilled into for fitment. The plan was to include the trim panels with the Cross Bar but that left me with a decision to make: I could either find unmodified, black panels as replacement […]

  • Ganador Super Mirrors

    With much vacillation and deliberation, I have finally arrived into the correct zeitgeist to move forward with the Ganador Super Mirrors. I only wish now I had cut to the chase sooner and skipped the initial hesitations. I came across these mirrors in abundance in the past, but never pulled the trigger. Now, when I […]

  • oCarbon Custom Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Overlay

    The goal of everything that I’m doing during this Winter round of modifications is to pursue what I’ve always wanted, with no compromise. The RX-7 allocates a substantial amount of realistic to these plastic panels. If I want to elevate the materials game, those panels will serve as the starting point. My conclusion is that […]

  • Little by Little, A Little Becomes A Lot

    I’m doing what I can to make measurable progress in a reasonable amount of time, but contrary to previous years, I’m not able to attack at a rapid and consistent rate. Nevertheless, I have been steadily chipping away at the puzzle. Most of my activity thus far came from behind the scenes strategizing and planning, […]

  • R&R: Remove and Remove

    I’m doing my best to chip away at the task list a little at a time. Since many of my parts are currently scattered and residing in various shops, there is no immediate urgency from my end. In fact, there are still items that I need to place new orders on, which I have yet […]

  • Eternal Project

    After spending a substantial amount of time and effort buttoning up and finalizing my interior, I of course did what only makes sense and ripped it all out again! I felt like I left some things on the table in a few areas, and I know I won’t be completely content until the results meet […]

  • IRP Billet Master Cylinder Brace

    The idea behind a brake master cylinder brace is to contain the amount of firewall flex that is experienced under braking, and thereby reduce the corresponding movement of the cylinder itself and increase the pedal feel. The RX-7, especially given its lightweight construction, is susceptible to this kind of flexing in the firewall. A rotary […]

  • ADVAN Racing GT – Machining & Racing Metal Black

    After running 2 iterations of the black on black scheme, first with the XD9s and then the RS/RZs, it was time to retire that look and move on. I wanted to go back to contrasting and neutral wheels for a timeless and balanced color way that matches the silver accents in the interior. Once the […]
