Are you keeping interior?
Pretty much everything will still be there...


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**

Thanks for the kind words and More coming :)

Well atleast you know with the sr seats they will fit but then again I keep forgetting you have owned a few fds so im sure you know what seats fit and which ones dont LOL
that is true.. And I have already fitted the Brides in my other FD without an issue.

more update...

Oct 4th, 2012

Past couple of days, I decided to strip off my spare RZ hub assemblies and fix up the rotor back plates and such.





Fronts fixed and degreased... Test fitted the new DBA rotors.. Shaved some metals so DBA rotors can freely spin.



Rears fixed and degreased



My good friend Bryan from BNR Supercars is going to let me use his cabinet to blast the rust and such off so I can get the prettied up today.


Also, I received some goodies from Turbonetics.



Their GT-K 1050!!!!

I also got my ID1000's. Bought them from Full Function Engineering. Awesome service and makes some cool stuff for rotaries! Thanks guys!!!




Also, got the eye bolts for the Takata Harnesses.. Can't wait to install them and go for a ride ;)




And finally,

The engine... Oil pan on, Oil pan brace on, and mounted on my spare FD subframe.

I'm currently putting the car together for SEMA and I can't upload all the stuff that's going on..

I'll make this short and share 2-3 pics.. including the render done by amazing artist and designer, Greg Thompson. He did an amazing job rendering the car with few pics I sent him and list of goodies I was going to put on. Just amazing work!! Since its so close to SEMA, I'll share the render to give you guys an idea what it will look like (exterior).



Hint of couple of parts..






I'll update the full car on my way to SEMA..

Rendering looks awsome. Wish I could've gone to sema again this year...went a few years back and I can say 3 things: hottest car models, amazing cars/products & super sore legs(my gf at the time had a pedometer and we figured we walked about 17 miles in 2 days lol)

Very true.. I usually have to 'train' to goto SEMA.. Otherwise, you are out after 1st day.


Here are some updated pics as I get ready for SEMA Las Vegas.







More pics coming once the car is set up at SEMA.... I just unloaded yesterday..
