awesome build mate, i love the bugeyes the car is looking perfect,

quick question in regards to you old purple coupe, what guard mirrors were they? as they dont look like the series1 one's ive seen? and im finding it near impossible to find a set that are even needing repairs so was even concidering something else that looks close to the originals and repainting them in the Grey,

Sorry Restoremaz, not trying to hi-jack your thread, but those mirrors have an uncanny resemblance to the ones on my RX2, which are TE27 Levin ones.......

If correct, I have the part numbers for you Matt...available brand new ex Japan from your local Toyota a dealer.. :D

Hi,

I've been following your build for a while now, and I start to feel guilty for not complementing you on this awesome work. I also have a Mazda 323 GLC with a rotary conversion. But after I saw your car, I'm ashamed to post pics of mine.........lol.

Keep up the posts and good work. This is definitely the neatest GLC I have ever seen.

Cheers

Hey, I like that interior. Leather with velour/microfiber inserts?

Hi,

The interior looks very nice.
Did you had a chance to take new photos?

Regards,

Thanks for the pics,
You must be feeling like a proud Dad.

What steering wheel is that? Looks nice!

The more I admire your car, the more I get jealous.

Regards

Thanks,

Can you read minds.......lol, I was just about to ask about a close up picture.

Really nice, are you going the keep that steering wheel in the car? Or are you going with the original steering wheel?

Unforetunately we never had an Mazda 808 in South Africa.

Thanks

Good Choice. And yes, it does suit the car very well.

If it's hard for you to get hold of one, I will probably never get hold of one. We didn't even get RX3's here. The rotary models that we received were very limited.

Just for interest sake, what Clutch slave cylinder are you using? On my car I'm using a slave cylinder from a FWD 323. The shaft is long enough and the holes line up perfectly with the gearbox (FC gearbox)

Regards

loving that 5 dial dash!
I so want one for my car

the car is looking a treat with the new interior
is that a moulded carpet? or a custom job?

what was the cost of the seats?
i was looking at getting some cobra classics for mine,
however the re-trim does look very good.

very inspiring

Bruce

Bruce, I have had good work done at Kedron Motor Trimmers, complete seat retrim and rebuild on an old Mitsubishi 8 seater last century and more recently some repair work done on the 1300, redoing the top of the rear seat with vinyl colour match to the original.
