    She's pretty rusty alright Dave. I don't think I've seen rust like that along the roof gutters before. Was it the Astro Purple before being blasted?

    I see roof rust like that on cars over here in the states that had those dodgy dealer installed vinyl tops. You've got a big project there mate but I've seen your work so itll turn out nice. Btw did you get the 929 for free? Having that on the truck when old mate drove up was a nice stoke of luck even if you paid a little for it.

    Looks like a lot of metal work to do. Isnt it easyer to make this RX4 donor for your 929 and convert it to RX4?

    Making me feel better about my jump off point. That one is rough. Serendipity that the guy pulls up next and offers the parts car to you while you're bringing it home. Wish that would've happened to me! Trim and pieces look good, though.

    Will be watching your progress!

    Cheers!

    Re: Rx4 coupe restoration.

    Well, I'm at work (7 days of triple time during the holidays!) and I love the fact there are people are putting serious effort into the rotary coupes. I grew up with them as a young driver in West Seattle, and there was a few of every model ripping around. These days there are NONE. Now, when I drive my S30 around, people are constantly honking and talking to me about it. I can only imagine what it would be like if I roll the Rx2 or 4. Someday......

    Thats what every body says...but its just not right.
    As long as you do a proper restoration you are right, but if you planing to put new motor in and do other crazy stuff it dosnt realy metter.
