repu stylin in the states??

just another question?? whats your thoughts on how a repu should b lookin O.G. or done up?
ova here in New Zealand theres a big thing wit boy racers and every guy has big mags body kit sounds.
rotarys are very big in nz coz there old skool and there are plenty of good exsamples of rx2,3,4,7,323,626 the odd r100 so im going wit da repu coz of there rareness and there cool shape. ill get on with my question like do u guys like 2 lower and put 20" rims and mad pulsen engine and all the add ons or just leave standy???

dats it i think.

cheers

oh yeah if u have and pics of mean az repu so i can get a idea wat they look like slammed.

Well, personally...

I think a not-too-extreme "updated oldschool-style" build would be my preference, if I could only choose one... but the bottom line for me would be dictated by the condition/completeness of the REPU I was starting with. I'd NEVER screw up a pristine original by altering it... and I'd likely leave anything near that condition as original as possible, perhaps excepting the drivetrain and suspension... but again, for me, nothing too extreme... (Unless, of course, it's the motor!) "Mild custom" might be another way of putting it. No clear lenses, stickers, super-rediculous-size exhaust tips, wings, stereos that rattle the car/truck to bits, or any of that trendy s__t. But hey, then again, I'm the guy who occasionally dreams of putting in a special exhaust cut-out, just to be able to blast those boys back to reality...
Lowering:yes, some. No C-sections, no airbags, no chopping the floor outta the bed. Not unless it's already totally rusted thru! It's all about function/handling for me--that comes first, looks are secondary. But then again, the REPU's already got looks! Offhand, I'd guess anything beyond 18" rims would be excessive... nevermind that you'll want to make 100% sure of your offset, etc. before investing. Oh yeah--welcome to the forum!

no way i was just wondering wat ur opinion was on the states scene??
yeah when i get mine im just gona give it a respray in the same colour it was and get sum b2000 mags and lower it and get a few other things done.
i wont b able 2 afford 2 do much wen i get it coz im getin a load 2 buy it.

no intentsions of stickin airbags that market has only just got available here and is rather expensive.

it will b a show truck tho...a tasteful one at that.

Right on!

Don't really know what to tell you about the 'states scene'--I'm too outta touch, I guess... to me, this place here IS the scene! Then again, I've yet to make it to a Sevenstock...
Sounds like you're right on track with your plans for your new '76. I take it you already know about vintagerotarydecals.com ?
