WLDRX2's .......Rx2

Recommended Posts

I know its against the norm but I now prefer the shape of the Rx2s over Rx3s- even after having owned the 3 coupe. The shape of a 2 is so much better in proportion. And normally I'm not a big fan of 4 doors but the 2's pull it off.

I would lovvvvvvvve a Fiat Dino coupe and both being Bertone designed I can see the similarity between them and rx2 coupes. Beautiful.

Who polished the carb body?

please keep this white, and keep it simple, and original, and actually just don't change a thing, old pic makes it look amazing, maybe some nice wheels with a gentle slam.

Hey guys

Cheers for starting this.

yoeddynz, Escort metal pollishers in Chch did all the chrome and bright work, super happy with all the work they did too.

Evan, I can't rememeber exactly how much the dash cost with out digging through all the receipts, but I think about $750, the old dash was a mess, ex aussie, lots of sun damage and cracks.

chees-, why simmons ? because I couldn't get any jap wheels in 4x110 at the time, but don't worry, I am still on the hunt for some longchamps.

Cheers for the comments guys, I know it's not to everyones taste, a bit too shiney, It's just they way I had always wanted to do a car, but when it is finished it wont be a show pony.

I drive the shit out of my cars ( when they go that is )

Love you work , Is an inspiration to all us owners

Cant go wrong with gunmetal (reminds me of MRGRIM) as it seems to work on almost all cars and you get this wicked contrast happening with the shiny bits

I think ill go to watanabes one day on mine , when the budget allows.

I hate the plastic looking crap RX3 tail lights + leaf spring rear end, go the 2!

Very nice Rx2 man. Just wondering why put all this money making it so shiny and show looking condition to just drive it hard and not take it to shows?

Did the show thing for a couple of years with one of my cars 'cough evo cough' and with a few mates cars, and it didn't really smoke my tyres.

Found the show scene to be a bit , meh .

Got to many things to do, to pay money to someone so I can stand around all day while they charge people to look at my car.

I guess too many hot rod mags as a kid made me like chrome a little too much.
