Re: 1983 RX7 S2 - Flo

Yeah, it's nice for things to start going back together for sure! If you need any pictures of specific parts of the manifold then just let me know and I'll get them up, will be a while before I'm able to get it into the chassis but as I said, if you want to try it for size on your car drop me a PM. ...

Re: 1983 RX7 S2 - Flo

Starting to get the front end put back together, it's starting to look more like a car again!
