Yea it's about that but includes 99 bumper, 99 turn signals, bumper bar, and front lip.

And yes the car will be painted in a year or so after the sealant wears off and I have all the body parts. I also wanted to get a trunk spoiler that extends the trunk line like a lip to keep it oem looking with a clean stealth look.

This car is disgustingly clean. Srs. Props to you sir.

The last time I saw an FD this clean and this stock was being driven by a middle aged woman in Pacific Grove. White FD with black interior, manual trans, would probably make Vlad pass out what with his white car fetish. I was waiting for a friend to come back with the moving truck when I saw it so I walked over to drool. The lady came out and caught me gawking and I said:

Me: This is probably the most beautiful FD RX-7 I've ever seen. How long have you owned it? Is that the original paint?

Her: Please don't. Its my only car. I really need it.

Me: Excuse me?

Her: Just please don't.

Me: Don't what? I just wanted to say that I really liked your car.

Her:

Then she walked away. I'm still baffled by that interaction. Am I that intimidating?

This thread is going in all sorts of directions. Must subscribe.

That montego RX is disgustingly clean. I'm super jealous. That car and color got me INTO Mazdas 20-ish years ago.

"It's my only car. I need it." - THAT is when you start using "ma'am" and holding your hands out in a non-threatening way. lol

I immediately check craigslist for FD's every time I visit this thread.

I hate you as well. Go hang out with your yuppie dorito spinning friends.

NO! FD's are the worst cars on the planet!! You'll regret doing that. Buying a Miata is the only wise choice. You will be eternally happy and life will never be better.

Trust me...
