Doug Jenkins Garage is cutting up a perfectly good Mazda RX-7!  Cool, huh?  The customer wants a super fast, super sharp looking RX-7, so the first thing to do is to fatten the car up.  Lines here show where the cutting will begin to customize the quarters.

Measure twice, cut once!  It works in carpentry, surgery, and custom car building.  The engine was built by a Mazda RX-7 guru in Ohio, so our work is confined to the body and details on this custom project.

The goal with customizing this Mazda RX-7 rear is to get 2″ fatter so 305 tires will fit nicely…and to just make the car totally awesome looking.

Got to get the steel perfect.  Modifying these quarters represents a couple of hard weeks’ worth of work for a skilled guy.  Sure, try this at home, give me a call if you have questions.

After the steel work is complete a light coat of filler is applied to fill the grinder marks and to smooth out the hammer work.
