    Rx3 Sedan build

    Happy New Year
    I thought I would start a build thread and hopefully finish it too.
    Bought this on Ebay a while ago, after a few other attempts of restoration on other cars I just couldn’t get the love from the cars I had bought. I finished my other car a while ago but never get to drive it. This will be for the road.
    It seems to have been someone’s - 13b turbo, 9 inch, 10 sec drag car thing. The cage has been cut out before I got it. last reg 2002

    It's got all SS trims and complete interior. Needs panel work

    Re: Sedan build

    Well those pics where when I first got it.

    Since then I have striped it, washed it out





    Basically I have now dripped sweat on it and aligned the panels. Which fit well





    Off to the blaster next week

    Not sure on wheels but nothing to big in diameter 13' Simmons

    Re: Sedan build

    Great project, pretty soild base by the looks of it. Im jealous of Rx3 owners, its the one thats got away from me never had a chance to buy a reasonable project! Have you thought about painting it the original colour B5, gallac silver? I think its a beautiful colour, and still modern looking but I am somewhat biased! If your after something more in your face then a change would be good.

    Good luck with it!

    Re: Sedan build

    No I was being sarcastic. I am bad for that

    It will be Mazda colour only. The Gallac silver is the first option, My first car (Rx3 Coupe) was Phoenix Blue AM second choice.

    All original/stock inside and outside with the standard black interior. The engine will proberly be mild port 13 Rx4 block with 5 speed and standard LSD. Maybe a weber and some different wheels sometimes.
