Hi all,

Just joined up and wanted to say hi.
Currently rebuilding a 1979 rx7 . Will get some pictures up when I get a minute. Got most of my parts together but would like to find body repair panels for the rear quarter and wheel arch.
Can anybody suggest anything.?
Look forward to posting my build pictures on here.
Cheers
