BC My 73 RX3 almost there...

Hey rotorheads , just a quick pic or two to show where my RX3 is at . Been working on it a lot over the winter finally making some progress. Still have some body work and trim pieces to deal with and then the brakes . Should have it on the road in the spring (ready to cruise with other RX's ).

Got some starting & running issues dealt with finally , turned out to be a bad spark plug (NGK).
Never had any plug problems with NGK before but they were used plugs so ...Also scored a NOS set of Koni's for the rear (still in boxes with the papers), so I think I'll go through the back end properly too and clean and paint the rear axle and install the shocks.

Looks great from what I can see. Are those Riken meshies like mine on there? I wish there were more old school cars here in Ontario. I'd love to have an old school rotary cruise.

Yeah good eye Buggy , they are Riken meshies 15 X 7 that I have had for about twenty years now.I was lucky enough to find another identical set last summer maybe for my next RX project.
I really think they look the best on all the vintage RX's regardless of model.

Thanks for the offer of the Konis but I already have them installed in the front and just bought a new set for the rears.
