Been a while since I posted any updates...


The original plan for the fuel lines changed a bit so I had to order some more fittings and modify some new parts.... Again!


Drilled and tapped the mounting points to make it easier to tighten the bolts in its soon to be location






Just have to order a couple more fittings then I can install it all

Took about 20min and glued the stereo surround and the shifter surround together to trace out a templet. I'll be heading into the school in the morning to fabricate the new piece for the gauges and switch panel.




Thinking about putting in some angled gauge pod mounts for that extra wow factor lol....

Went into school today and made the new dash panel for the gauges. Also made mounts for the coils as I'm relocating them..









Still have to file the holes and come up with a way to fasten into place. Thinking of using quarter turn fasteners for quick removal if need be

Need to remove the first set of clamps from the mounting plate a made as they did not work so well lol. These still need some cleaning up and welded into place, but I like how they turned out!

Finally test fitted the new dash piece! Still needs some work and maybe even a second piece made for the final install....

Thanks to Curtis I now have all brand new Mooge tie rods and adj. sleeves and one brand new sparco seat! I'm waiting on one tie rod end as he didn't have all them and looking for another seat..... Which I'm going to get another new one so they match lol. Great part is that I fit great in the seat lmao so I don't have to drop 100lbs hahaha. Hopefully I can start working on it soon as it's been pretty cold out.

Sparco r100

Tie rods and sleeves

Went to school early today and made my new door panels and seat rails. Door panels still need a little fine tuning then sanded. Seat rails will need to be mounted then determin where the seat will mount on them.

After doing the brakes and a tune up on the rx8 I spent about 5hrs on the 7 this weekend. Timing is set, carb is tightened down, fuel lines done, and cleaned the dust out lol. Need to finish tightening the oil lines down and the clutch pedal. Still need coils, e-fan, battery, and a couple other little things before I can fire it up finally. Oh and the dreaded wiring lol

Test fit

Everything is pretty close, but it fit pretty good
