Jlrotary's rx2 sedan turbo build

I am building a rx2 sedan for forum member Jlrotary.we are going to be doing a complete build which consists of full new front and rear suspension,coil overs,custom brakes,bigger beefier rear end,complete new wiring harness for full car,engine is gonna be a Cosmo 13b street port,turbo II transmission.
Here are a few pics of his car and old engine






I have recently dropped all front suspension




Cleaned up all the suspension parts and painted semi gloss black,took out and replaced bushings and ball joints,also installed coil overs.



Also installed complete brake set up on drivers side today(will post pics in the morning),waiting on sway bar bushings,and tie rods from getting redone so I can install it all up and start working on the brake master cylinder,booster,and brake hard lines.

Man what a beautiful car, I know that's a stock color, but is it the original paint?

You're the hardest working rotorhead on here Dave! One project after the other. Do you have any recent pics of the yellow 77' REPU you built?

I got it from summitracing.com.it is the only one that has the bolt pattern that will fit the stock booster and also that has a reservoir that won't hit the shock tower on the rx2.when I say tight fit it literally comes 1mm from hitting the shock tower.bore size is what was recommended for the brake set up on this car.

Dave, car looks great! I specially like that brake and clutch master set up did there. Would you have a part number for summit for it? I would like to copy your set up on my rx2 if you don't mind.

Ohh man what a pain in the *** it was to clean up the rear diff control arms!
Bushings were a bitch to take off also.took me a whole day and a 12 pack of coronas to do the job
Pressing in the new bushings was quick and easy.

That baby is looking good. Dave I been in the summit website checking on the brake master and I see a few that look like the one you have. Do you recall if the part number for the one your using is WIL-260-8794? Did you need to modify the mounting holes for it? Well, I appreciate your help and Happy Holidays.

The mounting holes were off by maybe 1mm-2mm,nothing a dremel can fix.i been working a lot these last few days and havnt had time to check those part numbers.
Before I go to work tomorrow I will go in my garage and try and get those part numbers.
