Rivalrx - 1972 Mazda 618 Coupe

Recommended Posts

RX4 steelies are on with a little taller white walls of 70 series vs the 65 on my previous steelies.  

Fouled  the plugs this weekend and got brand new plugs.  Will put more conservative jets in tomorrow and hopefully stops the plugs fouling. 

Ive drive It 10km EVER so I’m still feeling it out day by day.

So this happened today - purists please look away.

 

I have a spare RX2 s2-3 bonnet that has just been gagging to have an IDA hole cut into it....

this was the result

Bit of the old grease on the top of the IDA filter then lower the bonnet gently down, capturing the initial lower outline of where the cut needs to be. 

I need to get a couple extra bits to complete this like the thin black trim for the hole edge. 

My original red bonnet will remain mint so that I can chop and change the look at will. 

I noticed it was vibrating towards the front  at 100km therefore I had a good look at it when I got home. The factors glue holding the frame to the skin was separating. Now we pumped a load of Wurth glue in the areas of concern and it all should be sweet after the glue tacks off.

I’ve been working on the build video during the lockdown. I couldn’t find free music I liked so that’s something to look into for the next time.
