Old Member But New Poster With an RX4
« on: February 24, 2018, 09:27:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Im Chris and I have probably spoken to some of you guys at some point on the RX8 OC Forum, but anyway, Im here to say hi...

I currently have an RX8 in Winning Blue, a PZ in Galaxy Grey but most of all, I have an old 194 RX4 Coupe.
Shes in a garage and Ive owned her for nearly 2 years and have done absolutely ZERO to her in that time  :dontknow:

She will be looking at a full restoration as shes currently a rolling shell, I dont even know if I have everything to put her back together, let alone whats fit for the purpose or what needs scrapping!  ;D

I have the original 12A but will end up going with a 13B from an FD for obviuous reasons - keeping the old school retro bit alive but wanting a little more power and driveability.

She will be needing some body work and resto, and also put into a primer state at some stage.

That's basically about it - any comments welcome, especially from car body specialists  :great:

Chris
Will I Ever Get The RX4 OTR ?!

 :welcome: to MRC Chris.

Wow as you will see from my build up thread below, this is a huge undertaking.

For the FD engine, as these engines are now getting a bit rocking horse, a rotten TII donor car may be the better option for you and this will give you all the power you need in a car that won't stop or steer very well  ;)

Here's a couple of pictures to hopefully give some motivation.
