Watch This Project FD Mazda RX-7 Go From Trash To Stunner In 10 Minutes

Illustration for article titled Watch This Project FD Mazda RX-7 Go From Trash To Stunner In 10 Minutes

Ah, the time-lapse build video. All the satisfaction of finishing a successful car project with none of the work, money or time that goes into it. If you’ve got 10 minutes to kill today, you can watch this FD Mazda RX-7 go from a neglected heap to show-worthy.


This video from Throtl speeds up the completion of their project RX-7, codenamed #BADAPPLE, which they’ve been working on for several months.

This car started life as a dusty, abandoned project car with a bad body kit and a torn-up interior. As you’ll watch in the video, they basically gutted the whole thing, re-doing the upholstery, dash, seats, suspension, motor, paint and more.


I mean, that paragraph really undersells the work that went into this build, which you should see here:

I’ll readily admit those wheels aren’t exactly my cup of tea, but reasonable people can disagree on such things. This is a beautiful build and it deserves a lot of attention and respect.

Nice to see another FD saved but dang I still hate body kits like that on these cars.
