And after a rinse and Quick dry it looks like this. No more rust, then it's been left to dry over Night with the heat on full in the garage.... then begins the hard part!

And can't wait to get this behind me, so just started making templates for the new pieces of metal.

 

I'm planning on going the long Way home, and redo all the original pieces and build up the layers like it was originally. 

 

I guess i could just put some metal back on as it will all be covered up. But me beeing me, I want it done right. (Well the Way I Think is the right anyway):teeth:

 

Having in mind that i'we never beaten a panel before

And the last paint/reapair job was the bodycoat. And when that's dry. I need to clean and polish the panel paint...

 

It feels good to be done with that crap.

 

Now I'm afraid to have a look at the other side :wacko:

 

The last pieces goes out to paint in one week, so I have some time to finish alot of small things. And then, hopefully, when everything comes back, the last thing is to put it all back together and get it back on the road...

And also on of the things that have been a thorn in the eye ever since I Got the car, has been the worn leather seats.

 

So Got some Black leather filler and Black all-in-one Black dye/restorer from the scratch doctor.

 

i filled in the holes, scufs and worn patches and redyed the whole Seat and gave it some leather conditioner. 

I'm pretty contend with the outcome myself.

And also theese just Got here.

 

There suppose to be the dogs nuts in removing exhaust drone and resonans.

 

Vibrant ultra quiet resonators in 3" stainless steel. There quite small for the Big things they promise. But at this point I'm willing to try everything to get the drone level down inside the car.

 

I have no idea where to put them, as I haven't Got any room left, so I'll have to chop my exhaust for the third time...

nothing like trial and error...

Just pulled one side of the exhaust off. It seems I just about have the room to fit the resonators just before the rear axle. That's the last piece of realestate under the car, and if that's not enough I'll have to rethink the entire exhaust.... So counting on you Vibrant!!! Don't let me down.

Interested in your thoughts on those I need to do somthing with mine 

Sure. I'll give my take on it when I get it all back together and put a few miles on it.

 

first impression is that there is no way theese small "resonators" can do anything....

 

but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. And give them a try. I'we read plenty of reviews and they all Seem to get the drone and resonans removed. They don't do much for sound it seems... but to hell with that, aslong as the resonans f***s off.!

 

I did notice that the holes in the perferated inside seems bigger than in my silencers. Also the Vibrant resonators are filled with stainless materiale and not the ceramic wool that's in my silencers.

And the weather was playing along, so I started chopping the exhaust and placing the resonators.

it actually looks like there is plenty of space for them...

so cut some pipe, and tacked up the resonators where they need to be.

Are those tyres road legal that looks like something i need to get how much are they .B)

Their DOT aproved. So Road legal Yes.

 

and about 300£ each from the States with shipping and tax.

 

I'we tryed plenty of other Sticky trackday tires over the years. But nothing hooks like drag specific tyres. 

 

http://www.mandhtires.com/M-H-Drag-Radials/275-40R17

 

And i'we read plenty about the 16" Rx7 wheels fitting over the brembo rear calipers, but could' t source any, and also my JR 17x10 just clears the calipers by 5mm so before I see prof and not just hear say about the 16" fitting. I'm sticking with my 17".... also it's 10" wide. I not sure how wide the Stock Rx7 16" are. But to narrow a wheel on a drag tire, and you'll just spin the wheel inside the tire.
