  • Ok see if these work.

    Got my dash back after 8 months.










    mucked around with the shifter position to make sure it all operates , before finalising the gear box mount.























    New suspension stuff











    I decided to side mount the engine, i made up some brackets and used mazda 323 square mounts.













    next i want to sort out the ride height and make the extractors, plus mount radiator and oil cooler.

      • Awesome work Dave, question on your metal prep are you using a metal prep product i.e. Deoxidine on your bare metal before filler/etch

        • if light surface rust had formed, i would clean it with deoxodine, but i usually red etch primer things as soon as i get them blasted.





          I sent the front coils and rear leaf springs to get reset lower through the week, and set up everything in the car to trial fit.






















          Test fitted the guard mirrors and bumper and grille tonight. still needs a little adjustment here and there, but its not too bad.

















          More updates soon.

          • Awesome progress! Great update on front suspension. Keep us posted!

            • i got the springs back today, i went down another two inches.

              as i thought, these japanese mags, xr4 long champs, stick out of the guards.

              i went down to barrel brothers, thinking i could change the dish, but these are a one piece wheel, i thought they were three piece.

              these guys do awesome work, i was very impressed..

              anyway i don't want to lip my guards to fit these wheels. Wont be using them.









              So i pulled out the original wheels, which i had blasted last year and painted them satin black and had four new tyres fitted. one is a bit rusty, i picked the best four.









              While the cars still getting worked on, its rolling round on these late model 323 wheels.

                • Longchamps are a 3 piece wheel, they're just welded together

                  Comment


                  • Yeah, i thought i could just unbolt and change dishes like simmons, but chopping through the welds and redoing them is fairly expensive.

                    I think ill sell them.

                    • No work on the r100 this weekend, but i did find a place that has the original size tyres. The place i got these from said they weren't made anymore, and sold me these ones that are a bit big. ill show them the others and see what they can do, maybe exchange.

                          • Some camber tops might allow you to swing those tyres in away from the guards. I ran the same size tyre on my 1300 but it wasn't quite as low in the front and the wheels more a more positive offset.
