can you take a clearer and more upclose picture of the lip? I can't tell if that is custom, or mazdaspeed or whichever.

It's the 3 piece front lip offered by ceaser80. Just look up front lip and his email address will show up. Best lip for the Mx6 so far IMO. I might be getting MS sides to go with it but right now they look damn good with my awesome mudguards.

The FDs look factory custom. I've seen them before-very cool. They have a deep offset though, did you need to use spacers? If so, how thick? The fit on your car is perfect.

Thanks.

Actually no spacers whatsoever. The back are 245/45's and the front are 225/50

I will be getting 225/45 all around when i need new tires

How much did you pay for your FD's. Is there really any easy way to find them?

I paid a little over $500 seeing how all 4 tires had more than 90% tread on them.

Most FD with good tires will sell from 500-800 depending on the tires.

Without you can grab them for $300-$450 (the latter being extremely clean, almost new wheels.)

Go onto www.rx7club.com/forum and check out their Parts for sale section. eBay is a possible source but I would try and find someone local (drove 2 hours to pick mine up) as shipping will run $100 on these puppies without the tires. Not to mention once you get to someone house locally you can haggle and they'll usually give in. Actually they'll probably give in since most of the FD guys have a few set of wheels laying around anyways and they want to get rid of them. Mine should have been closer to the $700 mark seeing how the tires alone were over $500 but I was at his house, he already bought some new 17" to go with his big brake kit (oh it was a single turbo R1) and I haggled it down.

Hey, what kinda clear coat did you do on the tails? Ive painted mine several times, and they always start out looking like yours, and 2 weeks later the clear coat is starting to fog and whiten and do other weird things? Id like to make em nice, and make em stay nice.
