To coin a phrase, "Sweet As!!!!"

RX2 tail lights are a little different. It never ceases to amaze me what you guys are allowed to do to cars in NZ!

You've got this on Trade Me at the moment as well?

ive just noticed that i may have posted this in the wrong section if a moderator could move it, that would be great....

yes its on trademe, lots of views, hardley any interest...

from my 3 years of ownership trawling the web on coupes, ive come to the conclusion that after my build, this will be the best rx626 coupe in the country...

plenty of 4 doors, very common build here.

Where would you like this topic moved to? A build topic? It's currently in appearance category for "other 626's" which is a good place for this unless you're trying to sell the car... do you want this to be a build topic?

That's one sweet 626. Are the side mirrors original? I like the tail light modification. Great paint job! You might be right about it being the nicest coupe in NZ. It's pretty special. Thank you for joining up here and sharing images for the rest of us to enjoy. You're among other 626 owners here who can really appreciate all of the time and effort you've spent working on your car. It's quite spectacular. :thumbsup:
