RX3 build nears completion
« on: October 23, 2016, 10:15:47 PM »
Following several years of working on a rolling shell I am getting close to the finish line of my Rx3 project.


Not for the purist and I am sure not to everyone's taste.

She came back from the second trip to the paint shop last week and is now going back together at a pace.

5 speed 12A turbo gearbox
Mazda RX7 FB Limited slip differential
12A front nosecone, grille, lights etc
Custom front hub, 4 pot brake and disc upgrade.
Watanabe rsr 10.5j rear 8j front
