    1979 323 wagon, auckland new zealand

    hey guys, im a new member.
    from auckland, always had 323s, this is one of about 6 ive owned, this was my second one, and only rotary converted one ive owned, had it for about 5 years, since i was 17 years old.
    fell in loev with it the first day i saw it.

    79' 323 wagon
    sprayed in yellow, blacked out upohestery, everythings black and original, am radio, (amp under seat which runs one 4" speaker in teh standard hole in the dash with ipod cord so all is hidden)
    GSII rx3 savannah coupe steering wheel
    13x7 mogulars with 215 50 13 white writing yokohamas
    13b bridgeport s4 non turbo block
    mx5 gearbox
    b2000 lsd diff
    hardy spicer custon made driveshaft to suit
    fully adjustable 1 off front struts
    rear leaf spring, about to upgrade to ultra heavy duty rear shock out of VS commadore so nice and stiff

    When i first got it it was low on some dirty mods, it was pretty fucking ruff, the guy i bought it off got it like this
    he ended up just treating it like shit so it was kinda ruff when i bought it. wish i had restored it to its former glory, but hey, i was young!






    Im currently decideing weather to chop the modgies out to 13x11's on the read and 13x10's up front, because i have to run a 1" spacer to fit around the coil overs, the will sit flush, and run 175 50 tires so they will majorly stretched, or use 175 50 and do a little stretch on these wheels
    they will space out nicely, but still undecieded.

    opinions welcome!

    If i translate correct here is the answer

    the gold wheels are 4x114
    my car is 4x110 on the rear, and because i have s3 front hubs they are 4x114 up front .

    Can't take much credit for it as I bought it like this a couple of months ago. Big plans though 8)
    I did have this photo as the inspiration for mine for a while till I went a different direction.

    Your wagon is going to look awesome on those rims too. How did you do the S3 front end conversion? Is it the same as the S2, but with different hubs? I was considering this to get a better selection of wheels

    Hey dude, i got a factory set of s3 struts, then re vamped them, cut off spring seats, and got the weld on adjustable sleeves with cusco adjustable camber top hats, with the new shock i used a seris 2-3 shock, s1 shocks are 1" longer, but the 2 and the 3 series are that 1inch shorter, so its all set up to have tonnnnes of clearance.
    im just having trouble finding a s3 caliper re-build kit, any ideas? Im SICK of dealing with mazda, every time ive ever spoken to them, they flog me off as the car is old, and they are simply lazy.
    anyway, s3 brakes are the biggest of the rx7 brakes that came with the factory 13" wheels, i was lookin at some willwood calipers, but they were going to end up being way too expensive, and lets face it, brand new s3 stuff will be efficient enough.
    Wheel fitment wise, with the front im going to run a 25mm spacer, and the rear will have a 25mm adaptor.
