I like the wheel, but 14x7 + might be too thin :)

Well, I decided to go for a drive tonight, and went out to fire her up... wtf?! The headlights aren't working anymore :P. Tried new bulbs and fuse... looks like I get to dive into the harness... YAY!! :x

So, here's the current list of ish to do in order to make it daily drivable:
- Figure out carb (almost acts like choke is stuck, super cold blooded, and bogs down on throttle even when warmed up on occasion), I've got a rebuild, just need to pull the vacuum nightmare out now :P.
- Shorten panhard, or buy/make an adjustable bar.
- Fix headlights

Not too bad concidering my other two project cars need:
- To run
- To not suck
- To not be a mazda and a nissan
In order to be road worthy...

I've got kind of a stupid idea for the suspension too, but I'll try it before I post it. I assure you the parts are unconventional, and may just be too damn stiff to be streetable, so we'll see.

screw it. I'm selling my pos mazda instead, I still can't bring myself to sell this thing. I'm going to try and fix it up a bit and see if I still want to sell it when I'm done. But this thing is very very bottom of priorities right now, lol.

AWC won't do custom widths, but I can get those rally's with custom offsets in 14x7 for $65 a wheel through my work :D. I agree though, 7" is crazy thin :(.

Glad you decide to start on this project again.

My car won't start now, I think it's the starter. I replaced the battery with a new one and it won't crank over, not even a click.

You got a website for those wheels?

I have 14x7 up front and it looks ok, I still need to lower it to see how it would look slammed.

Just go to anybody who sells AWC and they can call about custom making an offset for you. Les Schwab sells them, and prolly Discount.

My Cressida did that and it turned out to be the starter relay. I took the plastic cover off the relay and squeezed the terminals together and it fired right up. I have an MX72 though.
