about my project...

hey i am am doing a Mazda Rx7 serious 1 1979 model and i am trying to make it look like a hotrod look-a-like with the paint job (candy's) but i am thinking of putting a metal flak or a marble look in it.
I cant afford a real hotrod on a apprenticeship wages.
I have designed a new dash to make it look like a hotrod on the inside with all the gauges and stuff its in the shop getting done as we speak.
I've become a member so i can get help and advice on how i should build my car it has taking me over 14 months just to do the motor an there is still more to do

I'm a huge fan of the RX-7 body style. Here's one I built back in the early 90's. I kept it as stock looking as possible (sorry for the poor quality b&w picture) but it had a 307/350 under the hood. You'll note the only telltale sign of a modification is the over-sized radiator sticking out from under the front wind dam. Second shot is of the engine compartment during construction of the car.

If you DO get in a position to hot rod yours, just be aware that SBC's will slide in relatively easy. But you'll need to modify the front springs/shocks to compensate for the extra weight.

Good luck with your project and welcome to HR.Com.
