Artie - it always comes as no surprise to me that when you mod your car the results are certainly stunnig. Love that look mate, love it - pure sick aggression x180r racecar style...

Keep it up,

Rog

A1 Rog, thanks a ton, what a compliment! I have some S300 arch extensions en route, thanks to Mangel! Once I get the body shop cleared out my SE sills go on along with the arch extensions! I can't wait!!!! Thanks everyone, I didn't think I'd get quite the response I got! You guys rock (group hug, okay, sorry)

Hi Artie,

Been following your upgrades on the car and I have to say the latest is fantastic.

I must admit I was going to do this to my Futara's before the car went as I love this look.

Your car looks stunning.

Well done

Cheers

Thanks Alan! I hope to finish the car sometime this year, if work goes well, I'll sell off the RX7 and buy a V8 to start modding!!!

LOL,

We can share ideas on that too then.

The chargecooling is getting ever nearer completion. I'm also doing quite a few aero mods as well. You know how it is, I can't leave a car standard!!

Keep up the great work.

Cheers

Stereo version of x180R look!

AWESOME!!!! But those are REAL! Any closer up shots of the emblems etc? I'm getting ready to paint my big 12.5" Wilwood brakes yellow with Green "Esprit" on them. Maybe some pics of those tomorrow. Gonna take a "mental health" day to work on the car some.

Alan,

It's hard to beat the X-180R look, that's why I paid the big bucks to get some custom made X-180R wheels for my car.

It would be cool to add a 'replica - World Challenge' decal on the side, even though I have a black car, but I'm not sure if I should. I still need to add the front canards anyway.

Jason,

Thanks dude! I went with black since I knew you went thru so much trouble getting your wheels matched to your car in white. I didn't want to steal your unique look! I painted the brakes ferrari yellow today and with the wheels they look awesome. I have some big 6 pot wilwoods on the front from LPBC which are great!

Chuck, any pics? Anyone know where the front canards can be had?
