 :sign0098: nice one Jarno  :13:

Looks good, but are you sure those uprights are strong enough? They look pretty thin in the pic! But I'm certainly no expert  ;) :P

Don't I know it  ;)

I'm getting the oil cooler on KIMI 2 re-cored as it sprang a leak. That meant taking out the under-tray, which had a big dent and needed straightening and repainting. Then saw some rusty fixings I thought I'd replace. Took off front valance and saw some chassis rail rust that needed sorting. Front bumper about to come off.....

What next on this oil cooler change  :)

Just a heads up that this trackday is now at a special offer price of just £120 (web price £179 before discount)! Use code CDTT18 at the checkout! WE've already got 12 RX-8's paid up and 5 garages booked to share at no extra cost  :13:

I can't guarantee how long the offer will stay!

SNETTERTON 300 (Norfolk), Tuesday, 24 July 2018. Full Open Pit Lane day with Circuit Days for just £150 £120 (discounted from the website price of £179!). For full details, click on THIS LINK, which will take you to the topic over on the RX-8OC. I'll be there and hope to see some other MRC people come along too!

Looks like you'll be spending a lot more time in the garage fixing/modding than driving  :)

Hmmm, that sounds familiar, my "on the road" 1st Gen is currently in my garage needing a new oil cooler and I've then found lots of other stuff I should do to the car whilst the cooler is out and I have access to under the front  ;) ;D

Oil cooler dropped off at Colchester Radiator Specialists this afternoon for a rebuild. Should take about a week.

Thanks for the reminder Andrew :icon_thumleft:

Got carried away at spotting nasty rusty fasteners under the front of the car, so removed some of the plastic bits to clean them up and replace the fasteners. I then saw some rust on the chassis rails that could do with attention whilst I've got easy access. This is turning into a bigger job  ;) ;D

Back in action again, excellent  :icon_thumleft:

Ah, so with relay 1 operating, both fans are in placed series, so the voltage drop will be 6v across each (if they have identical resistance), so both will run at low speed. When relays 2 and 3 kick in, both fans see 12v. Nice relay switching arrangement that I'd not quite got my head around before - now I understand!

Nice little write-up by Mazda UK to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the RX-7, The FC owner is Pete (RE5 on the MRC). Not sure if Kerr is on here, but I know him through the RX-8 OC  :)

Registration to attend this event is now closed. We have around 70 Mazda Rotaries and around 120 people registered to come along. If you've registered, keep an eye out for am email from Mazda UK in due course with further details of the event :)

Thank you for your support, it will be a really cool day with lots to see and people to meet  :icon_thumleft:

A nice little video from Mazda UK, celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the RX-7 line. Enjoy  :)

Thanks guys  :icon_thumleft:

I'm back home now and will see if I can remove the cooler to get a better look tomorrow.

Jon - many thanks for the offer, but if the worst comes to the worst, I'll borrow the cooler from KIMI 1!

Andrew - fantastic, I'd completely forgotten about that business in Colchester. I recall speaking to them about 15 years ago concerning a replacement rad for a Honda Aerodeck! I've looked online and see they are located right next door to Braiswick Tyres, who I use to do all my tyre fitting! I must have driven past their place loads of times and never really clocked them  :-[ :)

Jon - I phoned Tim this morning. No joy, he said the cooler was rotten and junked it, and he doesn't have another one  :(

Thanks for the heads-up tho, could've worked well with my trip today to Dorset.

I think it will be easier to try and source a new one.....
