Suspension/Brakes/Wheels / FD Brake Hardline Sizes?
« on: October 17, 2016, 04:12:20 PM »
Hey all,

I'm running new brakes lines and a proportioning valve in an FD, and I'm having trouble finding information on the size of the various hardlines. Is it 3/16" double/inverted flare all around, or is there 1/4" as well?

Build Threads / LS1 FD: Project "RIO"
« on: June 08, 2016, 09:12:55 PM »
Another FD joins the dark side!

Hello everyone, after having the FD in my possession for about a year I have been able transport it to my new location in Detroit where I have the garage space to take on this project.



This is when I got it as a complete shell with no engine (my friend is in the background) and stored it in Maryland. This vehicle sat in the shed for a few years and apparently had a very druggy past (it was supposedly saved from a police impound lot). Noticeable damage to the front fenders and underneath the sheet metal was damage to the drivers side headlamp support. I completely stripped out the interior and pulled 90% of the vehicle apart and prepared it for the move to the D. I also got rid of the hideous wheels.



Now she sits in my garage ready for work! I have already received the Ronin prepared Samberg kit and will begin with a complete teardown to the bare shell for front end repair. I look forward to sharing my journey bringing the troubled vehicle back to life! The goal of the build is a street-able stripped down NA application.

Interior/Exterior / Looking for some advice/experience on body repair
« on: October 02, 2015, 09:57:23 PM »
Hey all,

So I picked up my dream project car, a black 1994 RX-7. The plan is to do a restoration, LS1/T56 swap and get it back on the road. After taking the front end and fenders off I noticed that the headlight attachment is pushed inboard on the drivers side (see picture below). The suspension points have not shifted, and the underhood measurements are good. I want to carry on with the mechanical restoration but I have some burning questions about this level of body repair.

Has anyone dealt with this damage before? Any advice/ experience on the cost to have this buttoned up? All of my experience lays in powertrain and suspension and this is new territory for me. I already have new fenders and other bits on the way

I'm excited for this project and look forward to bringing one of the most beautiful cars ever made back onto the road :)

Thanks!
Nick

Drivetrain / 2001 LS1 DBW throttle
« on: September 14, 2015, 10:57:39 AM »
Hey all, quick question

I am looking at a 2001 LS1 out of a corvette. It appears that the only major difference is the accessory setup (which this engine doesn't have) and the fact that the camaro LS1 was cable driven while the corvette motor is drive-by-wire. Is there anything wrong with removing the DBW throttle body and installing a cable driven one?

Thanks!

Parts WTB / WTB: FD Series 6 Front Fenders
« on: September 09, 2015, 09:16:50 PM »
Hello!

I am looking for front fenders off of a 1994 RX-7 (or equivalent) Color/paint quality does not matter, and I do NOT need the plastic inserts, just the metal. Small dings are acceptable, just no creases/crash damage (the cleaner the better)

Thanks!
