Q, It might be an option to bring in a few extra tyres if i go down the path of importing, would anyone local be interested.

Cheers
Mark.

Another question, how would you go about sourcing a factory radiator? And is the factory R100 radiator aluminum?
Cheers

The original tyres were 145SR14. For classic radials the aspect ratio can be anywhere from 80% to 85% depending upon which source you refer to. It may also pay to check the width of your rims as there are a few different sizes apart from 4".

R100 exhaust gasket - use an RX2 one fellas! They're not nearly as hard to find (or expensive when you do!) as R100 ones...

Check out my R100 one next to an RX2 one...

Adam you will not be able to get that double layered rx2 gasket I got you anymore because it is the old asbestos type which they stop making ,but you still can get a single layered one like I used on my car which is the same shape from an exhaust place

Hi all I have a question about a mazda r100 driver door will the 1200 1300 coupe doors fit because my door is stuffed in the frame I tried plug welding it but that has worked.

It has gone out of shape.


Some people are telling me the 1000 1200 1300 door are the same and others are saying only 1200 1300 coupe doors will fit them im confused.

Everyone tells me something different.

(early style door handles button in line with handle) 1300 Coupe S2 R100 are the same with the same door handles! (late handles button below door handle) :wink:

Can I ask how the Retrosound radio worked out for you? I am debating on getting one of those or a Custom Autosound radio which has some had good reviews at http://www.vintagecarradio.com. Thanks in advance.
