I just got a picture of my 20b from Ernst at RX-7 World. It is now bridgeported and painted. He says that the final assembly should be next week.

A little update: The new intake manifold has finally arrived along with the electromotive ignition system. Thanks to Logan at Defined Autoworks for the new intake and ignition system. Ernst at Rx-7 World has the engine finished and is also supplying a fresh rebuild on a turbo II tranny. As soon as Ernst is finished I will go pick up the engine, tranny and ignition bring it all home and really get rolling on this project. So stay tuned.

Ok, The chassis is now painted. It had a little surface rust from sitting for 21 years. Cleaned it all up and put on a coat of POR-15 and then a coat of black Rustoleum. Here's a few pic's:

That would be me. The Trazda was sold to a good friend, it's still in Chucktown. It's a 12A motor BTW. I wound up stuffing a 13BT in a Jensen Healey and am currently doing another 13BT in a Triumph GT6 for a good friend of mine. I can't wait to see your 20Bra run!
