It has been a long winter lol. The parts are building up more and more though. The summer weather is just around the corner and I look forward to painting it very soon!

I got an Apexi N1 dual exhaust for it as well as some new ERS rims and tires to use to beat on. I am also ordering some Works VS XX rims for it soon. But those will not be for the daily driving and only for the shows.

Oh yeah... To be a silver spoon and have millions of my fathers money to spend on my toys while not working. That life would rule. I tend not to support the Adam LZ, TJ hunts and Robs of the world because it is not reality. It is like watching Jeff Bezos play with rockets and everyone acting like he is one of us and not the government lol. I like the little guy builds, a dude with 200 or so each month that works two jobs to work on his toy all night to get something that is nice he could not have just purchased. I am for the under dogs though! lol.

Here is a little video of another set of lights that I was going to put on the GTUs but then bought the OEM new ones pictured previously in the build thread. These turned out nearly new as well though and I will be using them on the other rx7 build I am working on.

Now the other car is a rotary car and while this is a place for "other car" builds I am only posting this one here because it is a 2jz and I love the supra and well, that was all the reason I needed. Also might need technical information and this seemed like a good place to start!

Here is the current build "Lazarus":

It is a 1990 savanna rx7 right hand drive restoration project that I am taking on with my kid. We are building a custom motor never made before. Taking a 6port non turbo gslse iron set and custom making housings from an s5 turbo and 3mm repu rotors. Still debating on if its going IDA, DCOE or EFI. Lots of options and the motor is the last stage. This is how it sits right now:

It just got a BN sports body kit and a wangan wing as well as a couple other goodies. I will link a build thread as soon as I make one on another site lol.

From what I could gather, he and 2 of his brothers started a small tech company that grew over the last 26 years, has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating... and has nearly 700,000 youtube subscribers.

Yeah sure... And Adam LZ just sold tee shirts and hoodies and TJ Hunt just sold stickers and cell phone cases and made their millions... Oh wait, no, they have rich fathers and they got their start there.

However I see I triggered the silver spoon squad and will be getting some shit from them now. Meh, trump nation, its to be expected.Does not change how I feel or the reality that people like Adam LZ grew up biking on a professional park in his back yard (of one of his fathers flip houses) that cost millions before he was a millionaire. Funny how if they were not as I claim they would not have these things before they were famous millionaire youtube stars you cuckhold. Trumps failed business had good BBB ratings as well, then they failed. Everything is bought and paid for when you grow up with everything bought and paid for. To each their own though, I just prefer watching someone who has to work for what they have, not just work with what they have.

So... Again, to get this thread back on track... The car is not my first rodeo and this project while in its hording phase will soon be hitting the body and paint stage and really coming together. Here are a couple of the previous rx7's that I have put together. I will post a few pics up of how those ones went and why this one should be about the same if not a little better!

Here is a custom made first generation rx7 I made about ten years back that is still on the road today:

Chris Weigel has one of the rare mazda rx7's first gens here in Oregon and this is the story of its build!



I meet chris through a person who worked at the auto parts store we both got rotary parts at. That guy also had a first gen. We three had similar interests lol. I had a dead rotary:




they did not. I asked some trouble shooting questions and he called chris to help. Chris came out to my house to look at it. I was pretty stoked about that and was really appreciative. I was not really knowledgeable on trouble shooting rotary engines. I had owned them for years but I never blew a motor, so I never bothered rebuilding one yet. This was the early/mid 2000's. I had however been doing body and paint for many years in the classic world and had a shop to do so. It was a side hobby I did for extra cash. We ended up hanging out as I got another rx7. The NW "super"moderator Robert White lived next to us and had a cheap FB he sold me for a few hundred. Ran great!






So we all drove around often. Hit up some meets. All the good stuff!


That is chris watching Robert do a burn out. We were envious of his GSLSE lol

I realize that you and the other trump supporters are triggered after what I said, I get that you are using your projections as gas lighting and will result to other deflections like it to continue this nonsense. I am going to talk about my build and why the previous ones will give an example as to what this one will end up being. Thanks.

Thank you for editing and leaving it alone. I catalog everything to assure quality assurance. Here is for everyone else to avoid confusion. Thank you for leaving my thread alone. Best wishes! :) (1) Joe Maddox Super Rare 1_100 1989 FC3S GTUs RX7 2JZ GTE VVTI Build _ Page 2 _ Supra Forums ...png

We ended up talking one day he came over and I was swapping parts around.


We ended up talking about how we should get a body kit on his car and he should go widebody. I ended up convincing him that I would be willing to fix any kit he could get and do the job for free under conditions. The first that I get credit for the build. Any one asks who built the car, he would allow me the credit I deserve. It is an artists thing. Also that he pay for supplies. I can cover little things, but he needs to pay for paint and papers and glass. We ended up talking with Robert when he came over one day for my carb... ( he bought for 25 and sold to another person for 550. but that is another story.)




We ended up going to hoofhearted (bob putman of rotards in salem) for the kit. It was smaaaaaashed up mad. There was no front bumper and it had lost of bad bondo all over it. I said I can do it though. He paid them a few hundred and we took it to his house!



This was the best panel on the car... This is what I was starting with. The rest was going to need to be redone in major ways.

So it began! The project was decided! he was going to be using a Mariah Racing front bumper to go with the rest of the kit and I was going to repair and customize the rear spoiler. It was to be a dark cherry red/purple. I brought the car in and got started on it!

There was so much body work to do. I first started mocking up the body kit and seeing what it was going to look like.







As you can see the rubber door trim was removed. I used one of the wife's hair dryers from the salon. Got hotter than the heat gun did ahahaha.



I started getting the panels ready to be put on.




Despite my wants to not hack the qtrs and only scuff the metal for the epoxy Chris decided to cut it anyway.




was not my choice, however I am not the owner and he was convinced that it needed to happen to bring the rims out flush with the kit when he ordered new ones. Unfortunately he ended up sticking with the rims he had and just bought wheel spacers, so the hacking was not needed after all. So I continued on.




It was time to put the qtrs on and then bond the skirts. This epoxy was gross and make sure the area is prepped before you put it down. I could not imagine having to take it off it it was done wrong!





The spoiler was hideous. I cannot stand it and he was open to a change so I started looking at how to make it more functional.

Both sides of the spoiler were cracked and the mounting points where gone.







After I got them all fixed up I mounted the spoiler. Seriously hideous.





The new Mariah bumper arrived! It was clearly not going to fit... I needed to mod it.




I cut to the closest fit but found that there was little to no ability to make the curve of the inner fender fit right. I was going to need to do major glass work. I got started on meshing the two together.

Chris came over and set up the bar that held it on and I started modding it!





The fenders... I do not know where to start with this. I guess it was best to start with nearly nothing so I could really appreciate the build. ahahaha.








After hours and hours of work I finally got all the panels finished up and all the glass work, glazing and primer was on! Now I just needed to mold everything together!










After much work I had the insides done and the outer glazing finished. the car was molded and now I could start on the rear qtrs and the spoiler!
