I have been busy with a house addition but have mad some progress.
The drivetrain is complete, trying to get it to start and run. Also picked up some wheels that fit perfectly.



Also put my welding and sheet metal skills to good use and mad a range hood for the kitchen


Wherls are 16x8 but look smaller (i was hoping for 15ísbut couldnít find a set to clear fd brakes)

How much would you pay for an rx4 that needs an engine rebuild + a little rust on the hood? Im looking at one right now

^. I donít think anyone can really answer that without seeing it. There are location price factors, condition, and how bad you want it.
Really how much is it worth to you? Can you find a better one. These cars are pretty rare to find in good condition. Buy the best condition one you can afford, you will always pay more restoring one than it would have cost to buy a good one in the first place.

Previous owner was just asking how you were making out. Good to see things are moving forward.
