Wanted: white R3 drivers side wing.

Post by Velocity_Dan93 »

It’s a tall order I know but if anyone has or could be persuaded to part with an R3 wing let me know. Need one in white ASAP

I think BigPete had a door from a white R3 a while back IIRC, whether he still has the wings/anything else from that same car I'm not too sure :-k worth a shot or if he sees this he'll probably confirm/correct me.

I might have had that wing from Pete... (and still sitting in the garage "in case")

Dan, happy to arrange a three way swap thing if Nutty has a good alternative, and Big Pete doesn't have something suitable.
I've checked, my spare is definitely a white off-side front wing, minty condition.

If this is possible that would be fantastic. Beer could be supplied all round in such an event

If anyone’s writing off a white R3 then I’d be interested in other parts of that Rubiks cube: mint passenger side front wing, front door and rear door. My paintwork is crazing and I fancy original replacements rather than a paint job.

I am, though, wary of tempting fate by sorting paintwork. The last time that I did it, after 3 years of using a car with superficial damage, within 2 weeks I smashed the new aftermarket front spoiler I fitted at the same time on a rock hidden in a snow drift, someone keyed the whole of that side and some hit and run driver smashed into the bit I’d redone requiring a full repeat of the work.

Now back to one, a white R3. Gone but not forgotten: 04 Tit Grey 231, 06 Copper Red Evolve (231), 09 VR R3, 10 Aurora Blue R3, 06 Black PZ; RX87 13BREW project car ;-( ; 04 White with Greddy turbo conversion ;-(

Buying a used RX8 turbo is like marrying a stripper.

Sure thing Dan. Easiest might be to sell you this one at whatever the cost of one from Pete / Nutty would be, or what I paid, if I can find that.
You're not going to Combe/Filton this weekend, are you?

I'm not planning to be at Combe, but will be at the Filton Hotel in the evening. Could arrange a handover somewhere, if it'll fit in the car with all your other luggage?

I doubt it will fit in with other bits !
Milton Keynes isn’t too far from me to pop down in the daily though, that will have plenty of room in it for such things.
