Awesome progress pictorial. It's amazing how many stories we have with our cars. I would've never guessed yours went through so much.

Wow, that hail storm really beat your car up pretty bad.

Oh and I forgot to mention, in 2005 a tree removal guy dropped a large tree limb on the same passenger fender. I've got pics somewhere of it. If you look at the hail pics, you will see where the limb hit the chain-link fence also.

Very clean RX-7. What engine are you running in there? How much did your new paint run you? Looks REALLY smooth, excellent job.

Thanks guys. I searched my computer and was surprised that I don't have any up-to-date engine bay pics... The one Samir posted was actually an "older" new pic. I have since buffed and polished the intake and intercooler pipes, made and installed (but not completed) intercooler duct and re-oiled both air filters (blue again).

I remember we talked about you doing this. Have you not shown it since then?
