    RA65 Coupé

    I guess now is a good time to finally put up a thread for this. Picked it up from the transport depot today (got it sent from my parents in the other end of the state)

    Australian delivered '85 RA65 coupé. Not a whole lot of work done, other than adjustable coilover conversion in the front, some shorter springs in the rear and a set of Volks in 14×8/8.5.



    Got it home pretty much just as the water pump decided to die, so I'll be onto that job tomorrow for a speedy recovery.

    Thanks!




    Got the water pump off today and I've got a new one ordered, which should come in tomorrow, so down time should be minimal, thankfully.

    Fixed the water pump and the thermostat decided to die, so I got the shits and just ordered everything else, so it'll have an almost completely refreshed cooling system. Got the new thermostat/gasket and radiator cap, just waiting on some radiator hoses and a coolant sensor, which I also found to be broken.

    Re: RA65 Coupé

    Thanks. There's plenty of little things that need attention, but it's pretty good for what it is. Rust is minimal and isolated to the typical areas around the bottom of the rear quarter guards a little spot at the bottom of the rear windscreen and a few little spots under the boot seal.

    Once I get all the cooling stuff sorted - hopefully tomorrow - I'll try and get out and get some better pictures that aren't taken in my driveway.

    Thanks. Don't worry too much. There's plenty of things on this car that are old, cracking, fading or just plain worse for wear. :P
