well I thought I show you guys some imprefections and some randoms

Engine bay .. She's a stocker alright .. well apart from the oil cap and minus the rubber hose that goes on top of the manifold to the air filter but i dont need it anyway since it will be always in the garage so no icing up carbie

Image

Engine shot from the other side ! BTW I stole Restroemaz's idea and paint the air filter cover :)

Image

I have decided to change the wheel nuts and I was dead set on ones the similar color to the car which I've found .. they are extra extra long bozo style ... My Mrs. thinks they are ugly .. what do you guys reckon ?? Well I like them anyway plus I was having a hard time taking some of the nuts off in fact nearly snapped them so just as well I changed them

Image

the crack right the middle of the dashboard :x

Image

and the back parcel tray .. any suggestions of what I should do here carpet , vinyl , cf ??? etc ???

Image

some faded paint .. not sure if you can see it but this is one of the worst panel

Image

over the years there were some fuel leaks due to old fuel cap I have now sort this out but obviously the old owner could not care less if you look carefully you might be able to see the fuel trails .. u know what I mean ?

Image

and one of the worst (visible) rust spots

Image

The manuals I got with the car !!! Original too :lol:

Image

some specs ....

Image

and some more .. might be useful for somebody ??

Image

This is the best bit ever ... It's from the casette manual

Image

HAHA attractive alright !!!

Kia ora Pat, welcome to JNC. :D

Cleanest 121 I've ever seen! :shock:

I vote keep it as it is, even if you do give "him" the obligatory lowered stance that is now almost expected of old skool mazda's in New Zealand.
Please bring it to http://www.rotarysummerdrags.co.nz/
I'm not suggesting you race, just park it up in the sun with all the other mazda's so we can all appreciate "poo brown" in the flesh. Its much better than the "other" Mazda Rotary event I reckon.
Nice photos, thanks for sharing pics. :D

Hello .. I've been to Summerdrags plenty of times before with me old mazda .. not sure if you have seen it before it was a green FD3X dubbed "RX 007" lots of decal and very shiny green paint with 300+ kw 13B that was the thing for me back then until I have decided I want something old school and found the "poo brown"

I will try to keep it as stock as I can but I cant help but personalised him a bit :lol: but wont be anything to drastic.

I will go to summerdrags this year if you go in your coupe' !!!!

PS. I am going anyway but it will be nice to also appreciate your car in person

Wow - Poo brown/Brown interior! Love it! Don't change a thing.

I haven't seen an engine compartment that clean on a car this old in a long time. Quite an astonishing condition, actually. Brush on a little POR-15 on the manifold to clean up the rust, and no one will be able to guess the car's age by looking at the engine compartment.

Great pics.
-if heater core leaking will have coolant or if leaky windshield just water.
-dash cover custom made or a handy wifey.
-bumperetes and mud guard removal yes.
-14 inch beaty ring universal sizes, dont buy the cheap ones rust in 2 weeks .You may be happier with aftermarket black konigs i know it would make me happy.

take it to a good upholstery shop. They will probably be able to match the parcel shelf to something very close to the original material.

Keep up the good work :tu:

Sorry about not replying dude...

If your losing coolant, and its pouring it over the carpets then its definately the heater core. Quick fix is to get the two hoses going to the heater core [1 x in, 1 x out] and join them together [bypass's the heater core].

As for repairing it properly, then its either a NOS/Aftermarket replacement core or getting your one recored by a radiator specialist.

Getting the tanks removed, core cleaned, tanks replaced and the whole lot leak tested cost me 120AUD.

Love the color of the car! Keep it close to stock is my vote, and your clean up work made it pop some more. Keep us updated.

I've been watching your progress and really like this car (I like 121's and RX-5's). I vote to keep it as stock as possible and enjoy it. :tu:

Guys I know this is a old post but man I love these RX5/Cosmo/121's. I want one so bad I'm willing to trade my 86 RX7 for one.

Very nice! The bumper tit removal worked well too. I'd say keep it close to stock. It is very 70s in a good way.
