Oxfordshire newbie

Post by brawr » Wed Mar 28, 2018 9:32 pm

Hi folks,
I've just shaken hands on an 84 FB that has been hiding in a garage for the last 12 years. It's a project for my fiancé - after rebuilding an 80s Honda motorcycle last year she's keen to do a car next, and wants to learn to weld. She's going to get plenty of practice on this RX7!
I've had a bit of experience on the spanners - I've just finished restoring and engine swapping an 84 Toyota Starlet - it's now got a 20valve 4age and a Corolla 5 speed box in it, as well as suspension, brakes etc.
RX7 looks like it needs new sills, various other bits of bodywork, a sunroof (I understand these are a common issue!). Will also be refreshing brakes, bushes, tyres, as they've all stood for over a decade. Not had a lot of experience of Wankels, but I think we'll pull the engine apart and give that a good going over as well, given the amount of time it has sat.
Looking forward to asking you knowledgeable folks lots of questions!
Will get some photos up soon.
Adam.

Hi Adam,
Welcome along.
If you let me know the car I'll hopefully be able to re-locate it to Oxfordshire on the register.

Cheers
codge (Dave).
