My First Generation RX7 Project

Postby Bezman » January 14th, 2014, 3:51 pm

As may of you know I have been looking for a first gen for some time now. It's been over a year of driving all over T&T and checking out all sorts of rotten and over priced cars. Finally I think I have found what I am looking for..

Got me a First Gen RX7 GSL :D

Well I still got to go through the car and See what's what.

But it's all stock from what I can tell except for the wide body kit (which I am still unsure if I love or hate)

Got no engine either. So I'll be building a 13b NA Bridgeport with 48 Ida webber etc.

But it's a 82 GSL (I think) with LSD, no sun roof but it has power steering, windows, mirrors, and factory AC. Got stock suspension etc.

First thing would be a thorough cleaning and then to mount up all the parts in boxes and buckets in the trunk. Get all new weather strips and rubbers for everything so it doesn't leak. Mount the front bumper and prob have it painted while I source an engine etc

Not going to be done in a hurry.

Powered everything (PS, PW, PM)
Factory air condition
Rear speakers, wiper, even has the jack etc

Tires are 245x50x15 and 295x50x15 :lol:

Looks good. Excellent engine choice as well. Carbed engines sound so sweet.
