Re: 1975 RX-4 SEDAN - BUILD THREAD - SCABSY

If they’re old stock Koni’s they’ll need rebuilt before you use them. What do you mean by they will need to be rebuit? I believe they are NOS There’s a plastic piece in the top that disintegrates over time and blocks the valve. You’ll need them rebuilt. Cheers for the info, I'll look into that - I'...

Re: 1975 RX-4 SEDAN - BUILD THREAD - SCABSY

Why didn't you get a matched set of ACBRON rears? The arches look like they're coming on great :D From what I believe ACBRON don't do a rear set if dampners for the RX4. I've read konis are the vest if you can find them, luckily the guy I spoke to had a contact who still has some. They are getting ...

Re: 1975 RX-4 SEDAN - BUILD THREAD - SCABSY

Alright guys Haven't posted in a while as I've been busy. Also still cracking on with the underside and wheel wells. So the remaining 3 wheel wells are prepped for fiberglassing now, apart from one rear one as I still need to grind the inner lip down to fit wider wheels at the back. Completed the re...

Re: 1975 RX-4 SEDAN - BUILD THREAD - SCABSY

Got off work at 1100 today so had plenty of time to sand away the fiberglass. Took me six hours but the results are worth it! I had to do three skims of FBG in the end as there was more air bubbles than I anticipated as the card wasn't that flexible and due to the curvature of the well I couldn't ge...
