  1. Really need to get this thing on the road again. A friend has removed some daylight from the floors. He is also going to tidy up the dash while the screens out to try remedy a leak.
  2. A baby blue boxer powered imp!
  3. @mutiny hey mate my wiring is a mess and I mounted a plate for a horn button and switch for something right in the way (cant even remember what for). Have you had any joy with yours?
  4. 2 months later the hard lines have been done, it now has brakes again.
  5. about time you enlightened us with your progress!!
  7. @Mattt I think from memory rx2's had a sump with a bulge at the back, or can get a cast alloy one already drilled in reverse. also I think the pick up is shaped that you can cut it and just add some pipe to extend it to the bulge.
  8. That Bomex crossmember made me laugh, love that it still had the sticker and all, nice work tidying this up
  9. I like this comment haha good luck with the sale, awesome build, cars built to this standard don't come up for sale often
  10. Calipers back together and on, need to put master on tomorrow and give it all a bleed, also removed the blocks from the rear going to put standard springs back in the front and have a measure up to see what need to lower the front to make it sit level and have some suspension travel again. Have pulled the seat out and removed the heater in preparation of having access to re-wire and also tidy up the floor and firewall, I pulled the factory sound deadening from the firewall as it was pretty manky so going to give it a wire brush and paint, need a couple of small holes patching in the floor going to borrow a mates welder and have a crack at it. Found a spot in the passenger foot well/under dash to mount the fuse box out the way as much as it can be, its quite a small cab not much room to tuck things out the way. Going to hide the headunit away too. Anyone used a universal type of heater/demister? Im kind of keen to get rid of the massive one in there and find something smaller.
  11. Calipers have been sandblasted and given a lick of paint. Have new pads and caliper kits, hope to put the kits in the calipers over the weekend and get the master back on.
  12. Booster and spacer is in, need to shorten the linkage between booster and pedal by 20mm then should fit well, will dig out the brake lines from the donor ute to suit the new master cylinder position and the vacuum hard line for the booster.
  13. awesome to see some more old mazdas on oldschool! cool coupe man
  14. Disc's are on, swapping over to the drum hub and keeping the 1st gen steering link worked well. one thing had forgot about is disc's foul the standard 14" wheels so might see if i can get some spacers, I have plenty of room to play with, some spacers 20-30ish millimetres would make it clear I think. Another bonus the brake hoses are the same even.
  15. Yeah I agree looks really good on hub caps and whitewalls, cool that its a ke20 2 door don't see many here in NZ.
