Michelle Rodriguez has paid tribute to Paul Walker as Fast & Furious 7 wrapped.

The actress posed in the front seat of a car with Vin Diesel in a photo posted on her Instagram account as she gave a nod to their co-star, who passed away in a fiery crash while on break from filming late last year.

"Ride or Die through thick and thin 15 yrs later surreal to think we made it through such a tough painful production. But this ones for you P I hope we make you proud love you," she wrote.

The image followed moments after another showing members of the cast and crew raising their hands in the air as they gathered in the middle of a desert.
"Final day on FF7 an emotional roller coaster but we've wrapped most of principle photography one love to all those who stuck it through with respect," the 35-year-old actress added.

Rodriguez's messages also followed a touching note to fans posted earlier in the day on the film's Facebook page.

"We made it. Today we completed the last shot in the production of FAST & FURIOUS 7. We wanted to take this moment to express how thankful we are for your support. We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it's because of you that we got here," the note reads.

The announcement also expressed everyone who worked on the action flick were devastated when Paul Walker died.

"Our family is big and strong but it won't ever quite be whole again without Paul," the statement continued in part.

"All of us -- those who've been here from the start and those whose first FAST film is 7 -- wanted to create a special film for him and for you. We believe we have."

The action film is slated for release next April.
