My comments in regards to doing it all properly, even single bit being done to make it an rx3.

What would you rather have, a rx3 that's had every part conceivable replaced and welded in, with welds throughout the body or a strong bodied structually sound 808 turned rx3 .

I'd be more pissed off if I'd found the 'original' rx3 was a mix and match from a bunch of 808's all welded together to fix the 'original' rx3

then to find someone had a crashed rx3 and and rebuilt an 808 to that cars exact rx3 specs and put rx3 plates on it

Reminds me of that bugatti that was found at the bottom of the Italian harbor and sold for millions- a total rusted wreck

I guess unless the factory signs off on the build-the car is merely a replica


Cheers for the info

Or how about, rx3 owners who just bought a car and found out it was built like Frankenstein or covered in bog . Negating the fact it's an rx3 it's pretty useless

Here's a thought. Anyone that's re-birthed their 808 into a RX3 put your hand up. Any takers?
No, because its a shameful thing to do and your a piece of shit if you've done it.

the beauty of a genuine Rx3 is that it doesn't even have to go or look good.. OR be bog free.

there's sheds all over Australia full of 'em in this condition... and all with proud owners.

Haha I don't get why their so desirable, leaf springs, big Simmons lol

I can see everyone's point of view and I'm not just being a fuck, but I honestly don't see the problem if its being done to exact rx3 specs. And I mean exact.
If you had an rx3 that was Swiss cheese, quite literally useless, you'd just send it to the auto recyclers?
