WOW!! Incredible effort going in to this. Keep up the great work :tu:

Cheers!

The sun was out today so I decided to get some prime on the inside of the quarter and on the car.
I'm getting closer to being able to weld the rear quarter back on, I'm really hoping it all works out! :?

Had a spare hour this arvo, so I got a little bit more done. I figure if I'm going to meet my deadline I'm going to have to get out there every spare moment I have!

Got another panel stand, not very interesting but well overdue! Can work on two panels at once now :D

Image
Image

Got the door skin welded back on.

This pic is of the inside of the door, I put some sealant along the bottom, should help to keep moisture out of the laps and directed to the drain holes.

Image

I also sealed up all of the laps on the inside of the quarter.

And while is was at it I did behind the quarter on the car too.

These are some of the parts I've been hiding away, took me awhile to find it all but should save me some time around the front end \:D/

Both front guards are nos, Savanna lower lip is nos, the nose cone was nos before it was painted and is in perfect condition. Also the surrounds and grille are genuine and in mint condition 8)
I also have nos stainless pointy nose trim, nos eyebrows and nos bonnet hinges.

As you can see the back of the nosecone is still in new condition!

How it looks on the car.

Will hopefully get some decent work done on the car over the weekend :D

Thanks for all the positive comments!


Didn't get as much done as I would have liked this weekend, Monique decided we were going to go look at open houses which basically took up most of Saturday, still got a bit done today though.

Got some primer on the inside of the door and the front guard, I've bought some stone guard and black 2K topcoat with some matting agent, I'm going to paint the wheel wells, under body and the inside of the car in satin black. The boot will be colour though. I'll also paint all my cross members and everything satin black.

Image
Image

Finally finished repairing the rear quarter, man its taken so much longer than expected :shock: even decent second hand panels need a lot of work!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I took the skin off the drivers door to see what it was like inside, its not very rusty at all which is a relief \:D/

Image
Image

Also finished off a few little repairs to the passenger door.

Image
Image

Blasted and primed my door hinges.

Image

So this was a pretty big milestone in the build for me, after spending about two hours moving around the door, front guard and rear quarter I was finally happy enough to weld the thing back on, its only tacked on at the moment but I'm pretty happy with hoe it turned out. The door still needs a lot of work to get it into a bit better shape after all the repairs I did to the bottom section but it should all line up well in the end.

Image
Image
Image

This sections going to need some persuasion to line up properly.

Image

Will look better once its got a coat of primer, but its good to see the car taking shape again!

They are original from Mazda but only late model ones had them and I'm not sure if it was only in the drivers side or not as both my driver side doors had them and my passenger side doors didn't, the doors could be off 4 different cars though :)

I'd like to organise the interior soon but have to get these GT headrests sorted out, I drew up some plans to get some dies made up for the embossing.

Its about as close as i think I can get to the originals with only the picture below to work off, if anyone has any other good pics of a GT headrest please send them to me :wink:
