New life for FB´s 12A
« on: December 06, 2013, 01:45:10 PM »
Ok, here we go!

Since RS10, Steve´s and Clive´s cars has been haunting me, I just cant get those of my mind!

I desided that I want to do old school car. I have been looking for good old Mazda for swap a rotary on it. Seems to be impossible, rotten or to expensive.

So, I started to look other manufacturers cars. Have found few good ones, but had no luck with them...

Well, today I took one step closer to get my dream car...

I HAVE ROTARY!!!! :Santa
I knicked my brothers FB´s engine, gearbox, diff and other stuff :) Ok,I will pay them...

Second step is to find a good car...

It seems that Escort might be only option. :/ Unfortunatly, I dont like them. Good thing is that I have lots of friends in Ford scene...

Mx-5 are rare and expensive here. And it cant be done because of our laws.

We dont have those either. Well, we do have few, but they are very expensive. And again, Laws and Mot man will say no no...

I have been sending messages with that guy who is selling Bluebird. Actually it seems to be quite solid body. I wonder if thats true. I hope so ;)

Also, I have been checking my engine. Turns well, makes a nice pssst sound.
What condition the waterpump is, I think I have to take it apart?
Can apex seal be stuck? Im not sure but front rotors one apex seal looks funny...

LMAO Ya, they usually dont make any sense. Few days ago, me and bro google translated thai to finnish. We were laughing so hard that basically forgot what we were doing. Actually, we were checking rotary scene at Thailand. Btw, they have awesome rotarys there:)
