My W ank........el

Post by Jimbo on Sun Mar 28, 2010 2:10 pm

Right, as I never had a build for the Civic, I'm making one for this.

After a lot of umming and arring and not knowing what car to get, I went for an RX7.

Spotted one on Ebay. Looked pretty decent, so off i went to view it, and came home with it that nght Smile

1995 FD RX7 Type RB
Rebuilt by Hurly rotary 8k ago

Apexi Power FC with commander. Running non sequential Turbo set-up
HKS Coilovers
HKS earthing kit
HKS mushroom filters
Feed Intercooler pipes
Turbo Timer
Feed rad, PS, Oil etc caps.
Feed engine damper
Titanium exhaust.. I like it but i cant make out the plate on it.
Short shifter
Trust gear knob
Defi water temp gauge
Defi Boost gauge
Defi commander thing
Air/fuel ratio display
Red stuff discs and pads
SSR Integral GT1 wheels. 17x8F/ 17x9R



First up was ditching the ugly (but real.. lol) wheels. I chewed on some humble pie for dinner, then ordered up some ROTAOMG Grid Drifts in 18x10 et15, and 18x9.5 et30. After stretching some 225/40's on them, they were on. With some nice rubbing.




So I made some calls, and had my arches rolled by phil at archenemy. He done a very good job, untill i got home and noticed the giant dent that had appeared while driving home (winner)

So she's booked in with the dent man for a bit of treatment, then the bodyshop for some nice smoothing and fresh paint.

Here she is as of now, all cleaned up, RX7 badge removed, and the Coilies wound down a fair bit.








Safe to say I'm pretty happy with her at the moment. I shall definitely be ordering a nice ally rad this week though, she does tend to get a bit hot when sitting around in traffic, which ends up in me pissing myself everytime Sad
