Minor updates.....still haven’t hi filled the shell......
Modified my RX4 air cleaner box by removing all the unwanted pipes from the bottom, and cut off the vent that usually has the hose that goes to the exhaust manifold for cold starts.
I welded a section in here, so the air cleaner box is simple and uncluttered. I have an older type Mazda Rotary decal to go back on the lid. Air box will be painted body colour.
Rims and air box prior to blasting
Air box etched
Another decal by “Letzgo” in Sydney. This guys wok is top notch. I have a stack of original style decals for the car all made by him. Very talented signwriter!!
Etch primed my rims
Black primed my rims
Painted my rims!!
I bought a double flare tool to do all my brake lines, but the flares are not quite perfect. Unfortunately I am now going to pay someone to flare them for me......properly.
Disappointed as I like to do EVERYTHING myself.......
I will use my flare tool to do my fuel lines. It seems to work well on bigger pipe.
Also got a lightened flywheel and a heavy duty clutch with a one tonne pressure plate. Better start my left leg excercises now!!!
Went to All Japan day on Sunday
and came home from with more enthusiasm after seeing heaps of classic Japanese cars. My favourite of the event was this R100. I had ever seen it before, but absolutely loved it. I went back and looked at it 4 or 5 times!! It looks sensational!!
For more nice cars that were at AJD, have a look in the events section of this forum, I have posted a few up.
That’s about all for now. Hopefully next update will have the shell hi filled.
