Straight from Germany.

I did take this one shot of the rear over-fenders, right after we had successfully bonded the two pairs together. I forgot to shoot the process, but because I intend on running really low-offset wheels, Ryan of Garage97 in Bend, OR, and myself successfully combined (using plastic bonding adhesive and fiberglass resin) a pair of 50mm Origin FC3s over-fenders with a rare set of Mari-Tri 80mm rears.
This photo was shot before any exterior finishing or cutting was done.
This essentially created an entire QP-style panel that we can trim to get excellent wheel coverage and perfect fitment. More to come.

I also recently ordered some polished 4” front lips for the custom BBS RS wheels in the background.

We spent the weekend fitting the aero parts before sending the car off to a buddy’s paint shop. The kit fitted nicely and the extensive prep work we did paid off; the 200mm (estimated) rear over-fenders we custom-made fit great, and the rare, enormous 85mm front fenders I was able to snag online lined up well after a little trimming.

Big thanks to Levelride Concepts for the superb interior fab work. An exciting moment for my FC; a car which hasn’t moved under it’s own LS-equipped power for almost a year..
I’ve got to fit the aero kit, do exterior paint, and get my hands on a few more bits and pieces (coming in the mail!). I’ve also got to address a few minor things under the hood before it will finally be out of the garage.

More prep.
Last week I drove to Portland, picked up the wheels from Skip’s Wheel Works, and headed down to Levelride to pick up the car and get started on the exterior bodywork.
I also had some tires mounted during the drive south - I decided on a 245/40/18 all around, I felt it would be a good combination of grip and slip for my 350hp-ish LS1 (w/ LS6 intake and ported throttle body). They’ll fit under the fenders, and the RX7 is a fairly light car that doesn’t require tons of rubber to make the car grip. Only testing will tell.
The drive between Salem and Sisters, OR is one of the prettiest in the state by my standards; but despite being parked next to a beautiful river, I couldn’t keep myself from pointing the camera into the bed of my truck.

After a 6 month wait, I finally got the custom lips & barrels I ordered from Memoryfab.com - while on a visit to SF in 2013.
I had originally ordered a staggered set (10.5/12), but later sent the rear wheels back. I decided to opt for some smaller inner barrels to make a square, 10.5” setup all around.
Memoryfab’s prices cant be beat, and despite not doing much custom wheel work anymore, they happily obliged and got started on the smaller set. Thanks!
This shot above is from before I polished, painted, and assembled the front wheels. We zip-tied them together to check the fitment before sealing them up for air.

I shot this photo of the RX7 when I first picked it up, almost two years ago. I picked up some SSR Hasemi Prot-GT 17x8 wheels (pictured) from a buddy for a few hundred bucks a couple months later..
It’s crazy to think that since then, I’ve widened this car in every way (Body, wheels, etc.), while essentially keeping the foundation of the same build.
And I’ve managed to pick up a few extra pairs of wheels..
