    Rx2 Sedan Update and Refresh (89Rotary Build Thread)

    Hey guys, finally took delivery of my Rx2. so excited to finally start diggin into her and getting her ready to see the Roads again. i'm very excited to own my first classic car, and i hope i can make you guys proud!

    so heres my First Pictures of the car. she was hit in the rear. so that will be the first area of focus. thanks to Derek we found the Motor still runs, and actually runs great! but when the time comes i do have a 13b 4 port. i'll be tossing in some S5 N/A rotors and keeping her Carb'd and N/A just with the Modern touch ^_^

    Enjoy!!












    Thanks again to Derek, i cannot express enough the Thanks i have for letting me buy this car. so once again THANK YOU!! :tu: :tu:

    Your peashooter exhaust is part of the REAPS exhaust system, created by Mazda, to keep
    the US bureaucrats happy about clean exhaust emissions back in the day!
    The upside is, we ended up with single dissy 12A and 13B engines.

    The same as the US spec cars have the UGLIEST bumper bars ever designed by human beings.
    Again, just to keep US bureaucrats happy about injuries caused by nudging pedestrians.
    The solution - let's put energy absorbing bumpers on cars.
    Nowhere else in the world got these bumpers, THANK GOD!!!!!

    US spec:

    Big Bumpers are Badass! The only RX2s with this type of bumper in the entire world….. Enough reason to keep um.

    Those bumpers are the difference between being able to reverse park and fit your RX2 into a normal "compact" parking space
    versus choosing a parking space that will fit a long wheel base Chevy Silverado! :twisted:
