    My 1977 Mazda 808.

    Anyway, here's my car. Latest look. Should I post the restoration process from the beginning?

    Some info:

    My car is running on a UC engine series. Its 1.4L and was taken from a Mazda Bongo/Ford Econovan engine. Previous owner had done the engine transfer.

    Original engine of 808 should be running on a TC engine series with 1.3L.

    Front shot before some DIY job.


    Panning photo.


    With my neighbour. The Watanabe's offset is a . 13 x 6.5j +10. So I removed the front flare for a while.


    After returning from Transformers 2 premiere. Hehehe. My gf inside.


    New rims arrived. 13 x 7j -1 only. As for rear, Im running on 13 x 7j -30.


    The restored tail light that I posted somewhere here not long ago.


    New butt.


    Rotary style. All looks, no go.


    Pushing it sideways. My JNC sticker is on the rear door.

    Car is in a workshop now. Specialist in Mazda 808.

    Doing overhaul, welded diff, stiffen leaf spring, oversize piston, etc. And most important, full bodywork to seal all the holes n rust, and some cistom flare to make it sit tight with the wheels.

    almost 3weeks already the car is in the workshop.

    Engine already brought down. 3rd piston got low compression which mean internal parts are damaged. Sigh, I miss my car.

    Next week, gonna take some measurement to make a DIY roll cage. Yep, DIY.
