    I love rotary engines but after 3 rx8s and an rx7 turbo powered kit car and paying for three engine rebuilds a change was needed. Thanks for the welcome all.

    What width wheel do you have to run to fill out the new arches?

    Welcome! I have a friend with a 350Z. How do you find the comparison?

    Hi Mark and welcome. It's a shame that the rotary engine is so fragile because it's such a cool idea, but Mazda have never really been able to improve its reliability.

    Hi, Just saying hello as I put a deposit down on a GT86 yesterday evening. Hopefully will be picking it up before next weekend. Previous car was an rx8 which I blew up. Regards, Mark

    Well yeah the idea of fitting any wider arches is to fit wider wheels under them. therefore you have to cut away the existing arches so you don't just destroy them with your new wide wheels. Not sure about a video haha, the M23 isn't as picturesque as some of the highways and coastal roads of Australia 🤣 What german 86 parts are there? Not that I have the money for it anymore

    Am I right in thinking that you only have to cut the original arches to prevent the extra wide wheels from rubbing on them. Can I also request a video liken to RWB porsche builds? If you're taking a van perhaps you could pick up some other German 86 parts as well.

    Around 3-4 weeks. I'll be taking a road trip to germany to pick it up just because I fancy a bit of a holiday this year It was always on my mind to fit it myself, as you can probably tell I very much enjoy doing 99% of the work myself. It's half the fun of owning the car to me!

    It's going to be really impressive to see how this turns out being fitted yourself! Do you have a lead time for the RB kit delivery schedule?

    Well the trick will be to fit the Body kit to the hire van before bringing it back in to the country! 😂 Plans for the wheel arches will be to cut them likely with a Nibbler attachment for a drill as they're cheap and far more accuracte/safe than using a rotary or saw tool. Once they've been cut i'll employ the help of my fabricator friend for a few beers and we'll make a new bit of sheet metal and he'll weld it in to seal up the rears then we'll run seam sealer just ot be sure and i'll likely use some cavity wax on the inside of the arches. For the fronts i'll even stick with the normal arch liners and work them a bit to make them fit the new shape of the inner arches or i might just employ his skills again to weld up the gaps on the inside of the engine bay looking in to the wheel arches. Going to keep the bolt/rivet on look. Hoping to do as much of it myself and i don't really want to deal with cracks between the panels in the future, and personally I don't mind seeing the bolts poking out

    Insurance cost of forced induction

    Have renewed with Greenlight, was happy with the cost even with all the mods and turbo declared.
  27. this looks interesting.. I'm going to London on Sat so if I can find a cheap hotel I wouldn't mind tagging along. Will keep you posted. Concorde is a bonus too!

    Paint issue on top ledge of bonnet?

    How odd. Mine has has marks either side where the bonnet struts (aftermarket) are. It's like they have caused the paint to crack a bit. Anyone else had issues with the paint on the bonnet?
  29. Hi noticed on my bonnet along the top line near the window that the paint seems to be going funny like it looks like it’s fading or metal. It’s a black bonnet and the top edge has what looks like a green tinge, it’s not been resprayed however paint seems to have chipped off on the corner on the passenger side and the drivers side looks like this? I’ve circled the area not sure if this has happened to anyone else’s bonnet ?
