Default I've about had it with the rx7 project

finally after over 3 months of waiting I get an engine subframe.

JUST the subframe.


did he send motor mounts? Nooooooooo why in the holy **** would he send me anything usefull.

He still owes me:
transmission cross member
torque arm
my wiring harness back
driveshaft


meanwhile he has $1700 of my money.

they dont pull that anymore
that car is clean but realistically I'd expect 18k out of it.

mine, complete, probably 14 tops, maybe even 12 because the chassis is a salvage title.

I think it's two things

#1 market saturation, the people that want one, have one
#2 you can't borrow 27k against that car, so someone has to pay almost all cash

the RX8 should not be too difficult thanks to all the development on the FD's
it's quite difficult because the renesis is mounted so far back.

much to my surprise the mounts showed up today. They're on the block and aside from 3 little things to tie up I'm ready to shove the engine in. Maybe tomorrow, we'll see. Gotta roll the car out in the driveway and need some help pushing the hoist.
