Cliff\'s 1st Gen Purchase - Goldie
« on: November 03, 2010, 11:44:39 PM »
As most of the forum will already know I have just completed a deal for the purchase of Goldie - a 1st Gen Series 2 1984 RX7 and what a fantastic shade she is.

She will be brought back to be cared and cherished and my intentions are to undergo a thorough examination and re-store to a roadworthy condition.  More details and photos to follow.

If you look after her as well as you have Jazz I\'m sure she\'ll be wonderful when finished :)

Are you hoping to bring her back to a nice clean original style? Or going to do something a little different this time?

Going for originality again Steve - the ever faithful.
As with JAZ, bought on \'speck\' so yet to behold its true condition but coming with heaps of spares apparently.

Good news that you\'re doing the clean original restoration thing.

Makes me feel less guilty doing non original things to mine if there\'s at least one clean gold example about :P

Each to their own but as you say, nice to know there is at least one around as standard.

Just looking at the pics Cliff, the clutch master reservoir looks very close to the air filter or is it me?
Have you got a front bumper with the car (i dont have a spare by the way)

See what you mean Keith - ye does appear close ....hmmmmm... all will be revealed at the weekend I think and of course will also be exposed in this thread.
Have already asked and apparently the front bumper is there but as it happens I have also been offered a bumper from a friend in Tamworth along with possibly more spares.
