Old school Mazda's / Mazda RX3 number 2 and restoration
« on: July 01, 2013, 08:44:40 PM »
Most people will know i have been restoring my 1973 Mazda RX3 for a few years, and im glad to say she is almost done (see my other thread).

So i was at a loss as to what to undertake next :3Confused

Until another 1972 RX3 came along :D , and with a little negotiation i was able to secure it :Thumbsup!

Its more work than the last but definitely worth restoring and i enjoyed the last one so much :Giggle :rolleyes:

Well here they both are and what will follow is a restoration thread with plenty of pictures :)

Here are both of my RX3\'s and im well chuffed with both of them, i know im gready  :yes

Old school Mazda's / rear brake info req
« on: March 02, 2011, 12:34:37 AM »
Im currently restoring an RX3 and im wondering if any of the other Mazdas shared the same rear brake components as the RX3 ?
Avoiding the usual (and hard to find bits for) cars like the 808,818,rx4,rx2 etc

Im looking for new or good used Rear brake drum adjusters, brake lining retaining springs and handbrake cable.

Any help would be much appreciated and rewarded with a nice cold glass of a beverage of your choice at RotorStock :D or a nice cup of tea :D

The brake adjuster currently looks like this and duznt look like its ever going to be free and moving again.
