My 1974 Rx-4

Should have posted this a while ago, but been too busy with the new project. I brought home this 1974 Rx-4 thanksgiving weekend. Bought it from the original owner with 27,700 miles on it. Was stored in his garage on jack stands since the early 80's. Last licence sticker was 1982. Came with a whole trailer load of parts as well as manuals, brochures, original bill of sale, and ownership from 1975. I've been working at it and with a new fuel pump and a carb rebuild it came back to life! I'll be giving it a full tune up next as well as new fluids, go over the brakes, check it all mechanically, and give it a good cleaning.

I'm slowly making progress on this car. I have the brakes all together and working. New flex hoses all around, wheel cylinders, calipers, pads, shoes. I rebuilt the master cylinder. I also have some 15" enkie mesh wheels coming for it.

Had the car on the hoist the other day so I took some pictures of the underside. I replaced the exhaust hangers. The old rubber hangers were all cracked and broken. Also replace the rear diff gear oil and trans fluid. Pretty much ready to go other than new rims/tires, and a good interior clean.

I started cleaning the interior today. I got the drivers side pretty much done. The white vinyl is looking good!

I'm using meguiars convertible top cleaner to cut through the grime and then a damp cloth to wipe it down after.
