The colder it gets I think I'm going to just bypass mine until warmer weather. I don't want to try pulling all of that apart out in the cold.
Of course if we still get some nicer weather and I can work on it all day I may be able to knock it out and have it finished.
I've got enough projects to last through winter.

Awesome! Brand new for 2012! I'm sure they'll make a few different color schemes eventually. This one is sweet. I can't wait to get a handful of them!

I've been thinking of doing flares. Not the widebody kit style. I really like the look of them.
But I also think a 1G looks great with no body attachments at all. They just look good with no spoilers, skirts, etc.
Just the flares look sweet though. I'd like to get a set and mock them up on the car. Check it out, go from there. See if I really do want them.

There's now a Knoxville RX7 Club group page on facebook. If you are in this area you can go check it out and join the group. Has info about autocross and drifting events in this area and region.
Thought it might be helpful to anyone trying to meet up with other rotary owners. Or for people looking for events or RX-& gatherings in this area.

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm hanging in there and trying to get some work done to all of my project cars.
It's slow.. Very slow. But I have hopes of getting some good Winter projects started and hopefully accomplishing some things to all my project cars. Every time I have extra money lately, I have to use it for something else. Lol, seems that's life!

Been a while since I've been on here. It still seems to be pretty slow for this thread. I hope to keep it going though.
Been working on VW's all Winter. Time to get started on some of my RX stuff I need to get done. It's about to be rebuild time for the TII.
As soon as my resources are all together and it starts. I hope to post some photos.

I replaced the wiper/turn signal cluster in my '85 today. The wipers still won't work. The fuse is good, the motor works. I'm going to get my buddy with wiring skills to look at it.
It must be a relay, which I thought was built into the cluster.
If anyone has any ideas, let me know and I'll check it out.

Didn't get to do any work on the 7's today. Was helping a buddy put the motor back in his Beetle. The humidity is awful. It's stifling outside and pretty miserable.
More reports on the wiper situation on the '85 as I try and figure out what the problem is.

I've been waiting on putting tires on my '85 because I want to upgrade to 15'' wheels. The 13'' tires have been on it for many years. And have a lor of dry rot cracks in them. I have kept tire shine on them somewhat. But time and weather has dried them out.
I drove it the other day, played around a few minutes and brought it home. Parked it and shut it down and heard a hiss.. Left front was going flat!
At least it didn't pop while driving or leave me stranded somewhere. Had to find a used 13" to go back on it which isn't that easy anymore.
Got it fixed within a couple of hours of it's demise. And got a new car cover for it also. Another good day of happy motoring.

Sat. July 13, @ 8:00p at Gondoliers Pizza next to The Rush on Lee Hwy. Chattanooga, TN just a casual eat, greet, and meet.

From another forum I'm on. Some cars have been getting together. There's a few rotaries involved. I'm going to try and check it out. I won't be able to have either of my cars there yet. But still try to get by there.
We are hoping to arrange a get together for some rotaries in the Fall this year. I'll post up some dates later on when they develop.

Been making a parts list for the '85. It's time to start gathering up a few things to do some repairs. And also some things I want to the the car.
Hope everyone is doing well and keeping on.
I'll try to update more often. Get busy working on junk cars and never seem to find the time.

Took the '85 to a big cruise-in Saturday. I usually take my '61 Beetle but it has the number 2 intake valve stuck. Have to pull the motor and change the head.
So I decided to the the 1G car and hang out. It got a few looks and photos made of it. But it was mostly overlooked. I enjoyed taking it though and will probably take it back sometime.
