  1. If you are looking for parts, especially LH drive interior items, you need to look at Europe, in particular, Germany. Most exterior parts are the generally the same, so most markets - Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand can help you out. These FB pages have a great mix of all nations with RWD 626s. I strongly suggest you join - I do not think you will be disappointed. I am Philip Hans on these pages.

  2. I back tracked ....you're in Canada? Shame, i have an S1 hardtop here in Oz, begging for restoration!
  3. Here is an Aussie hardttop that has always been a favourite/benchmark!
  4. This one? Now resides in Brooklyn. Colin is on this forum.
  5. There was an Orange hardtop up in Seattle, but I don't know if Dave still owns it. He had fitted a really nice set of 3 Series BMW leather seats - fitted the car perfectly, and was looking at upgrading the motorvation, the last time I heard from him.
  6. Cheapest RWD Mazda we can still buy here in Oz, although S1 chrome bumper models, in good condition, are now becoming a lot harder to find and more expensive - $2K-3K ish. Some dreamers are now starting to ask $4K-$6K for S2 plastic bumper low spec 3sp auto sedans.....they either get laughed off websites or 626 newbies get totally done buying them!!!
  7. Classic Japan 2018 - not as many this time round. A few very late withdrawals on the morning of the event.
  8. 2017 Classic Japan in Melbourne
  9. 550CCA battery is about as big as you can fit in the existing battery tray. I fitted an aluminium base (over the existing battery tray) with a rubber mat, for the battery to sit on. I also modified the factory battery holder to suit the width of the bigger battery.
  10. Welcome Matt! Awesome colour as well!!!! If you're not a member of this 626 FB page, then time to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/266014573758441/?ref=bookmarks Here's a pic of my yellow 626 - paint code YW!
  11. Finding an S2 hardtop boot lid in good nick, is super difficult. They all rust along the lip - for some reason. I saw your post on RX626. I have a spare one, but it's only in poor to fair condition - it has rust also.
  12. All you have to do is ask. Except for the US parts wise, I have contacts all over the world.
  13. Join the RX626 FB page, young fella. We're a good bunch of RWD 626 enthusiasts from all over the world!!!! https://www.facebook.com/groups/266014573758441/?ref=bookmarks Make contact with Stefan Neuteboom. He shut the Oldstockmazdaparts web page down because he was being charged squillions to keep it running. He still has the parts, just contact him direct. And I know from experience, he is happy to send parts all over the world!
  14. Well guys, for any of you rear wheel drive 626 enthusiasts, we did not beat the 2017 number of attendees - we had a couple of last minute withdrawals, but this many together, is still not a bad number - 7. There is always 2019, we want 10 minimum!!!! This meet is for all pre 1993 Japanese vehicles, bikes and trucks, so there were many different models there. If you are interested in seeing more, drop me a message and I'll put some more pics up.
  15. Hey mate - any model with a VC or MA engine. So to start, B1800, B2000, 626 RWD, 929L and S1 HBSHE 929. If you cant find any where you are, I can probably track you one down.
  16. When the car was fitted with factory AC, a micro switch was fitted in behind the fascia. Pushing the Fresh air/Recirc Lever to the right would turn off or on, the micro switch to activate the AC - provided you had the fan on at least low speed. The cable may have seized up (i have never seen this happen before but there is always a first) or maybe someone has "tweaked" the leverl along the way. The only way to find out quickly, is to check your fan, like I did last night to take the pic, and check if the cable is connected to the fresh air flap lever I pointed out to you. Other wise, its disassemble the controller section of the dash. If you're mechanically minded should take you about 15 mins to get access to the heater control unit. Remove the following: ( i may have forgotten a couple of screws but you should get the idea) - two Philips screws up above the heater controls - they screw into the under side of the dash. - all knobs from heater control panel ( I use pliers) - there is a tiny Philips head that holds the Recirc knob on. - Radio knobs and the 12mm hex nuts and washers on the tuner and volume controllers. - the ashtray - the little coin holder below the radio ( Disregard if your 626 has a cassette player) - carefully lever the top section of the switch control fascia down from below the dash, to allow it to pop forward. BE GENTLE - or Baby Jesus will cry when you crack the plastic!!!! - carefully unclip and pull forward the whole fascia so that it gives you access to the heater control unit. To completely remove, disconnect the lighter wiring and defrost switch wiring. The heater control unit is held in by a couple of screws and the actual cables ( clips anchor them) - 1 to the fresh air/recirc flap on the blower, 1 to the heater tap RH side of heater box close to the trans tunnel and 1 to the air mixer about half way up on the RH side of the heater box. See how you go!!!
  17. Lever in - fresh air flap open. Lever pulled out towards you - flap shut and in recirc. The cable runs from the lever across the dash and connects to the top front of the fan blower housing above the passenger side wheel well. In Recirc mode, when you pull the lever out, the cable pulls the flap lever. This is a hinged lever so it raises the flap to shut off the fresh air.
  18. Not a turbo, but for sale down here in Victoria.
  19. Welcome mate. Could you live in a more remote area?!!! Finding parts must be a bitch!!!!
  20. Houndstooth was never an option in the 626s. Definitely aftermarket fitment. This car could have been optioned up in the US, under license from TWR UK, hence the difference to the UK original.
  21. I am not 100% positive that it is fully original as stated - the original TWR spoiler did not look like this and was colour coded to the car https://www.ebay.com/itm/1979-Mazda-626-Montrose-2000-TWR-Coupe-Look-/401566713185?_mwBanner=1&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F0%2F0%2F0%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F401566713185%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3D96e5234c1640a9cb254148cffff6e60d&ul_noapp=true The spoiler certainly does not look like the one below.
  22. You're right. It's gone. Too good to hang around for long!
  23. Stick a V8 in it like this one but keep it sleeper spec on the outside! That's 5.0L injected Aussie motor in Luke's one. That should get people's attention over there!
  24. Anyone looking for a cool old school ride? https://www.facebook.com/groups/24712355408/permalink/10156688347850409/?sale_post_id=10156688347850409
  25. Try not to ruin it too much, please!!!!! Sorry, I am biased about cars retaining their exterior originality! As soon as I see Boso cars I think of this.
