Veilside Fortune Model Mazda RX-7 Build
RX7's have always been a car of choice for me. I can remember when I was a kid going to the dealership with my parents. They owned various Mazdas, not sure which one it was when the 3rd Generation RX7 came out, but when I saw a red FD3S sitting in the show room I was completely blown away!
This is my 2nd FD RX7, on this build I wanted to push the envelope. I really liked the direction Veilside brought the RX7 with the Fortune kit, so it was an easy choice for this project.
To me the design seems like a way the RX7 could have ventured from those early days. An aggressive update to a killer machine!
I love the lines of a stock RX7, you can't beat them! but this time around I wanted to do something new.
Thanks for checking out my build page. If you like what you see, please sign my guest book and vote me showoff, Thanks.

First Week of the Build
Car arrives at JMI Motoring in WA, in short order the panels are mocked up and the work assessed.
Shot of the interior on arrival. A lot of work to do here, the whole interior will be replaced, and all new oem and custom components will be added. (See page 4)
The wheel and tire package I went with are massive I-Forged custom wheels, 19x13.5 rear and 18x10 front wrapped in Michelin Pilot X PS2's.
My plan is to powder-coat the wheels black, leaving some of the surface polished. (See page 2)
After quite a bit of work the panels are getting closer to being ready for paint. Here is a test fit a few weeks into the build.
All Body Panels Fitted and Gapped, Ready For Primer

We are now ready for paint, the following are pics of the various pieces, some custom moded, all sanded, ready for a final check and then paint.
Time for the First hints of Color
Dropping off what's left of the parts car for final assembley needs
Almost all of the paint complete. Still some black trim and accent pieces to tie in with the CF. Then the glass and mirrors go on. Wheels get powder-coated, and various other details addressed.
99 Kiouki Tails will be added and may use these APR CF Mirrors instead of the stock ones pictured above. Decided against the Mirrors included with the kit
Also using these Feed Tow Hooks which have been Powder Coated Red
Loaded up and on the way to ForceFed to get some Engine and other custom work done.

love your seven bro. great job with the build!
Nice car. I like it all except for the headlamps. One cool feature and a icon one in the RX7 is the retractable ( hidden on day time ) headlamps. If it ain't have retractables it ain't an RX7 ( Like Corvettes non retractables, it ain't a Corvette if it ain't retractable.
love this car great work 5*****
