Hi Dave, good to see that this thing is nearly finished. I've just bought another one, flat front 4 door, will be putting all of my bits into it and getting back to the 2 door another day as it doesn't need as much work. Do you still have the 2 door you bought? Just registered on here, will be getting my RX2 back on the road in a couple of months after 4 years so I'll start a thread. Hope you are well. Cheers, Marty.

Trim work looks unreal. Really suits the theme of the rest of the car. Must say that the steering wheel is certainly the finishing touch to a fantastic build!!

Bring on the final pics and video :D

Thanks jdm rx2...will definatly post some better pics with my brothers SLR in a week or so.

marty i sold the two door...i just didnt want to start on another 323....i may be getting a jap spec series 4 rx2 coupe soon, which a friend of mine owns ,which is still sitting in japan.

ill decide when it gets here if ill buy it or not, so far ive only seen photos.

Ive still got that ariel you wanted, and lots of spares for 323s if you need anything.

Thanks Dave. I have had a bit of a change of plans- the 2 door will probably be built up as a track only car, fully stripped interior, WRX seats with cage and harnesses, custom fibreglass dash, no heater etc. I'm keen to build it for hill climbs, sprints, a bit of all motor drags and such. The reason for this is that the interior was just too stuffed to use and being a 2 door it will be a pain to use as a daily with the kids. I've got a good mate up here who is a gun fabricator and is keen to build up a track car so he will more than likely help me. So unless the new 4 door needs an aerial I'll pass on it for now. You will hear from me later in the year when I get the 4 door if I need any parts! Shame when you left Ausrota, your posts were always interesting but good to see you're on here. Cheers, Marty.

You must be kidding Dave, right ? You just finished building the ultimate factory looking 323 and you're going to part with it without enjoying it for at least 10minutes !

It looks like you prefer owning wrecks than good cars :lol:

We might have to talk a deal Greg? I just bought some NOS tail light lenses for it yesterday.

Do it, the RX-4 comes with all those custom speed holes :tu:

I knew for a while now that this 323 is going to be an awesome finished project, but still I was wow'd with how it looks.
Great build, great car and a great guy.
Personally I wouldn't be able to part with such a beauty if it was me, but I understand your reasoning. Please, if you do another build, share it as well.

Regards,

Thanks I consider this car my apprenticeship ! Knowing me I'll probably use it for a few months then bury it at the back of the garage because of a new project. Im keeping an eye out on a couple of 12a coupe wrecks that are save able, my current project has taught me nothing :lol: I already have some unique ideas for that particular future Rx3 12a project that Im keen to build. Still sticking with the factorish looking theme. I'll do things a little different next time.

I know alot of people dont like and consider them ugly but Im keen to at add an Rx4 coupe to my collection. I really like the shape of the Rx4 coupes, they'd easily be my favourite old Mazda behind the Rx3. The fact they arent as popular is all the better for me :) It was actually the Rx4's that got me interested in Mazda's. An old friend that used to work at Alexander Rotary in the 80's used to own a metalic blue and silver one, yes 2 tone paint.........thats were it all started. A few other friends have owned them over those early years. The cockpit dash, wide hips, aggressive front end and decent overall size.... what more could you want from a Japanese muscle car !

So whats next for you ?

Mate, that series 4 RX2 is beautiful......bring on the replica!! What colour is that car? Shame about the ending of it. My Rotor Rolla ended with the same fate. It is heart breaking when shit like that happens......

NOS lights look good!!

Whatever you decide to do, I'm sure it will be a thread worth following.
I heard that the little Mazda 1300 makes very nice rotary cars.

Your tail lights already looks nice, why the new ones? Also, are the smaller tail lights still available, as new, in AUS?
