Sept 13th, 2012

I finally took some time to work on the rear diffs of the FD RX-7s.

Here are some pics of the diffs.

Stock vs Kaaz


After cleaning the case, sanding it down, and re painting it with epoxy paint,.. I put the new covers on.

Stock vs. Greddy higher fluid capacity cover.

Sept 19th, 2012 Updates from past 3 days..

I had the rotor hats made for the Disc Brakes Australia rotors and got them refinished in similar black.







Cleaned up and repainted the RZ calipers.



I also replaced the diff bushings with Powerflex bushings.

Sept. 30th, 2012

I'm debating about the interior and test fit the Takata Harness on the Spirit R Recaros.

Let me know what you prefer?








Also, got my VS-XX refinished/powder coated and put new Toyo T1-Sport tires. I've heard great things about these and can't wait to test them out.


**They are not going on this 3 rotor project car**
