Note the rx7 mirrors in there too.

Finally got rid of the huge grandma style steering wheel and put in something sporty.  Relocated the cruise control that's mounted to the old wheel, and put on my new mirrors so I can see what in the H I'm doing.  Life is getting better.

Aside from vikrams doors and boot hinges, I have my rx7 spoiler, and not shown is the orange mini boot hinges and brg 66 s boot lid.

Some Vikram door prep, a headliner started on another car, and my spoiler did up.

Isn't the headliner a 2 man job? don't you have to stretch both sides at once to keep the wrinkles out? I'll be curious to see how this goes....

It's a one man job when you're me!  Lol.  Heavy duty clips fill in for a 2nd man.

I did manage to find time to install the spoiler while paint dried on other projects. Took some effort to get it positioned properly. I also took out the rear wiper motor and arm which I never use. Weight savings to offset the wing weight right?!

Sounds reasonable.  Looks awesome.  Favorite rx-7 body. 

Back in high school my friend and I turned his 85 gxl-se into a scary beast.  Car was fast and handled great, but it never felt planted in the road.  Like those jet boats that just skim across the water.

This rx7 is a beast.  Plus I'm about to install water/meth injection and crank the boost from 15 to 20psi.  I'll need some stickier race tires for that.  Already smokes them all of 1st and 2nd and tries to top of 3rd.  A few suspension upgrades have been made and a few more on the list.  The 3rd gens were nearlyperfection from the factory as is.
