Bought it last week from the old guy. He was planing to put Windsor V8 there but never got to that point. Hi have 2 rally cars and one drag car. Can not say much at this stage but car is totaly drivable and nearly everything working good :) Suspension is gone on the back and on the way on the front.
Plans: 1 Seats. Done
2 Suspension. Back is done. Front on the way
3 Paint
4 Dash Replace/make
5 Interior Fiberglas Doors and rear Shelf maybe if it will be going too good making/modifying dash
5 Sound Head Unit+2 Amps, Front 6" splits, Rear 6x9 +Sub
6 Engine. Hoping to put 13bt there later.
Now Some photos. on the photos it looks much better then in real :(

Another one saved.
I can't believe how many RX4's and 5,s where tortured with the Ford Small Block Conversion...
Maybe there wasn't enough Cortina's to go around....
Nice clean platform to start with Chuxa.
One of the worst dash warps I've seen but fixable or can just be replaced.
Some original front seats and a respray and it will look gooooood.

I have original seats but they need to be fully rebuild. And due it's not a full restoration project more like renovation :)It maybe will be done later. Dash really upsets me when I look at it but I'm not going to touch it at this stage. First it need to be beautiful outside and comfortable to drive and then interior work will be done.

Wheels i think they called Performance :) 14x6 but much lighter than my original 14x5.5 steel rims Bought them of some guy who used to have Rx5 in Adelaide unfortunaly i was about 2-3 weeks late coz he sold heaps of NOS rx5 stuff :(

White walls looks much better on the photo then in real life this white walls not inbuilt in tyre they just white rubber surround around the rim and 2 out of 4 sticking a bit too far from tyre but as i sair ill geve them some time to rehabilitate after long time without use wash them :) and hopefully they will sit nicely. But i still looking got some 15-16" wheels.

Hi mate !
Nice job ! :tu:

I'd like to know where did you buy your front springs and shocks and how much did it cost to you ?
I have a late 929 and it's the same front suspension as yours.
Bye !

Hi im not sure how it in France but here in Australia springs available from King Springs (lowered) and from Pedders (Lowered) roughly about $300 AU for full set fronts and rears but shocks was only available from Pedders and they were about $90 each or for Pair cant remember right now. Not sure about postage but if you need help with it let me know.
