Hi
Can i ask where you are doing your bodywork...i assume you are a panel beater/spraypainter.
Is it a buisness or you doing them at home?
I see a nice R100 in the background.
We are seriously considering getting ouir RX4 coupe totally restored,but would prefer it done by a mazda fan/shop.
Please PM teh shop details if you dont want to list them online.
I just a 1968 142 volvo restored,so i know the work/cost factor

What what whaaat?!?!

Never heard of this creation. The 80's Mazda 626 headlights look quite bizarre on the old 323/Familia body.

Excuse me please, now I have to go do some internet research to hopefully find out more about these beasties.


yup..it is true..the headlites are from 80's 626
'll start a new thread about this...
RestoreMaz..sorry for jackin' your thread.. :oops:

WoW! absolutely loving this build.....A few questions for you, as I am looking
at doing a similar thing with the front end on mine

1. what series rx7 are the struts from? (ever heard of using rx4 struts?)
2. what is the benifit of using the rx7 ones
3. do you get much of a camber change using those?
4. where did you get the thrust bearings from?
5. where did you get the nolothane bushes for the sway bar?
6. are those standar rx7 brake rotors?
7. and when you say you lowered the rear springs, did you cut them? or re temper?

Bruce
