After a fertilizer company trying to kill us with overexposure, and countless hours in a lawsuit against the county police and their indiscretions, I have found the time to assemble some of the new **** to my 89 rag project. Hopefully now I can stay on this till it's finished, anyways here's some pics of the car...

Not installed yet, I just spent a few days throwing some of the new goodies on, new seats, stereo ****, exhaust, etc...

Yes I did, Teflon hi pressure. They say it's supposed to squeal bad @ the extremities but I'll have to wait until the a/c compressor is in so I can shorten the lines, ziptie, and charge the P/S unit.

lol, Let's just say I started this project w/o the full preliminary knowledge one should have about RX-7's and the rotary powerplant. This chassis, for one, is soo damn heavy, so its gonna be a cruiser, lots of shiny, loud stereo, mediorce power, or as my friends call it" The little red bitch getter".



I was all lined up to buy a slightly abused fd chassis, as a second project, but as earlier stated the **** hit the fan and it didn't happen, which turned out to be a better thing anyway. I like the FC chassis, and with all I have learned on this project I would like to stay with the FC and learn alot more on a turbo set-up.



As for this project, I may opt to put an atkins sc on it if it's power is too weak to say, "merge on the freeway", but all things considered it should do just fine buzzin down the 101 to sevenstock in the fall.
