I thought I'd use some 1/8-inch by 2 inch by 2 inch angle iron for building radiator mounts, so this is just getting ready to design those:

So here it is: For about the cost of replacing the 10.5" rotors, it now has 11.3" rotors, no need to spend hundreds. Just a cutting disc and a grinding disc for my angle grinder, $1.43 of spare steel, a few rods for my stick welder, and a little electricity, it looks better, resists fade better, and stops shorter when loaded.

I'm not happy with the current wheel / tire package, how it fits or how it looks. I'm leaning toward tucking some 7.5s, at least 16s. If I go 17s then I'd be doing even larger front rotors. But that would make the Mercedes-sourced Brembos easier.

Current plan is finish the rear brakes, then rear shock mounts, rear spring seats, followed by the rear anti-roll bar, before the exhaust and fuel pump.

I didn't know the meaning of 'modification' until you started this project!
When you finally turn the key and are underway for the first time,you'll have a cornucopia of modding memories to keep you company as the miles dissolve under the RX-7's tires.Truly amazing fabrication! Absolute transformation!
