Dis-mantling and preparation of parts continues on the RX-7 project.

Sleepy time for the RX-7. The car gets put under for its major, long-term surgery.

S4/88 13b with 400,000 kms on it! I’m surprised it looks as good as it does. This engine won’t be seeing action anytime soon, but might be a good place to scavenge for parts if I need them.

Garage is starting to look pretty disorganized. A 1 car space is tough to work with when doing this amount of work, but to be honest, it’s much better than having no space at all!

Engine bay sans engine, sort of sad looking to be honest. What’s interesting is how damn light the stock NA transmission it. Must weigh less than 50lbs, I was easily able to remove it on my own with just my hands once it was unbolted.

Check out the sound deadening, not looking forward to stripping that off the body.

Pulled off the badges on the rear, I plan on filling the holes as well as the third brakelight and hatch keyhole.

There is a LOT of work ahead of me. Starting to wish I had used the ’90 RX-7 shell and re-built the roof.

That’s all for now, will update again soon as the tear-down continues.
