Side body mouldings????

Post by JPowrie » Wed Apr 12, 2017 12:41 pm

I live in New Zealand and have a UK spec..... Do any of you guys know if the side plastic body mouldings are still available over there? In particular I need the left and right hand side pieces that are furtherest to the front.

I have seen some on Ebay USA but they are pricey

Here is an example

US spec...... quite a few owners in the UK have stripped them off to go for a cleaner look and usually throw them away... someone might have some knocking about though.

Hi Jason

I recognised the name from AusRotary.com but also your series 3 that was featured in Fast Fours about 15 years ago. That car inspired for me so many years. Such an amazing engine bay. You should share some pics here. ;)

UK spec series 3 didn't have the indicator in the very front moulding - they have round FC style indicators near the RX7 badge on the guard. Both US and Australian series 3 did have an indicator there. HOWEVER, series 2 in Australia and the US didn't have the indicator and are identical to series 3 UK ones.

You can still buy these individual pieces brand new from Mazda but they are very expensive. For second hand, just look in Australia. Series 2 without indicators, series 3 with.

There's currently a complete body moulding set being advertised on Gumtree AU but they are series 3 (and therefore have the indicator in them): https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/noosa-h ... 1144161474

There's also a few guys on AusRotary currently wrecking series 2s:

Glad to hear my old 7 gave you some inspiration KYPREO

Thanks for the info, I didn't know that the Aus spec series 2 didn't have the indicators
