Grandma actually sold it to her grandson 4 years ago with 28,000 miles, so he tells me. I guess he scraped it...  Laughing
Either way, the underbody will get a nice fresh coat of undercoating, and oilspray to prevent rust !

Well I came home last night at 4:30pm.... had to drive a RWD pickup
and trailer through snowstorms & whiteouts south of Lake Erie and big 18
wheelers trucks ! SCARY ! Thise drivers have some courage I tell ya !haha
Took me 14 hours driving...
The canadian customs idiots gave me a bit of a hard time because
they said that U.S. customs didnt stamp the title to clear it out of the
country.. I told them this is not needed.. the lady had no idea about rules
and regulations for importing cars from U.S,- she had to always ask her co
worker what to do.. LoL..

The car is in mint condition body wise..! The white markes you saw in pics
is actually a poor waxing job... not scratches.. the car is scratch free
pretty much and no stone chips in front either !
The car is at my mechanics shop now. He took a good look at it. It needs
some mechanical work, timing belt, water pump, new distributor (makes noise
as bearing are toast), lower front ball joints, muffler and all new fluids.
It has brand new alternator, alt belt, A/C belt, Power steering belt, 1 year
old battery. and new front tires.. all electronics work too - power locks,
power mirrors, power windows etc
It needs a good cleaning.. dont think it has been cleaned by that 93 year
old grandmother...LoL
As far as rust, its super clean ! a few scrapes underbody that will get
coated with rustoleum undercoating.

Glad to hear you got it home.  Can't wait to see more pix!  After the maintenance, what are the first mods you're going to do?

Would you like me to move this to the build section?

Just an update:

Picked up the car from my mechanics shop.
I spent a bit of money for maintenance to make perfect.  Smile

- New OEM timing belt + water pump.
- New OEM thermostat
- Valve clearance adjustment
- New OEM valve cover gasket set
- New aftermarket distributor (bearings were toast inside) - Paid $231+ tax dealer wanted $479 + tax
- check engine light was on when I bought it - code 19 -
http://autorepair.about.com/library/faqs/bl167i.htm
ended up being a bad ECU, probably caused by a short from the bad lock up control tranny solenoid - replaced ECU with used unit for $80 and OEM soilenoid for $110 (my cost from dealer)
- Replaced tranny fluid with OEM stuff
- Replaced engine oil with 5w30 Amsoil and Napa gold filter
- Full coolant flush including block, replaced with OEM Honda coolant
- 4 new NGK Platinum plugs
- New OEM fuel filter
- New OEM Air filter
- New OEM PCV valve
- Adjusted ignition timing
- Installed new OEM GSR Muffler - painted the muffler with High heat flat black paint, added my OEM Si tips
- Brand new aftermarket lower ball joints
- Brand new OEM Honda front brake pads
- safety + emission test

I did all this for  ~ $1000
Also, days before I bought the car, the previous owner installed a new alternator & Belt, A/C belt, and power steering belt because it snapped on him days before I bought it.
Smile

I will have some pics of it once it gets detailed next week.
The detailer Im using is a master.

check out some of his work:

I took some pics of my 1992 GSR muffler installed on my 1988 LX sedan. All I had to do was relocate the hangers. I also put 2 coats of high heat spray flat black paint on it for extra corossian protection.








I'm going to change out the Si tips for GSR tips.

Thanks.

My civic is getting some cosmetic work done as we speak.
I sprayed the wiper arms and hood cowl plastic with SEM trim paint.
This stuff is fantastic. It leaves a nice factory flat black finish !
I also replaced the hood cowl weatherstrip.



Unfortunately cant do much in winter cuz I dont have nice Cali weather where I live.  Laughing

Freshing up the trim and moldings makes a huge difference!

Thats a great idea to spray paint it. I think I'm going to try this. Any idea if other trim products will work with good results? I have some duplicolor trim stuff but it did a poor job and peeled quickly.

If you don't mind post up where you bought the paint. I'm also from Canada so if it's a major store I might be in luck Smile

Here's a write up for the same thing using a CRX Si muffler.  No relocating hangers required.

Cool car.  Shoulda checked the junk yards for a new ECU, probably could have got it for free with a five finger discount or at least saved $50.00

Just got in a super rare Palmy Gray EDM lower optional console for the sedan ! Smile
Found it from someone in Latvia, of all places...LoL

Supposedly, the sedan, hatch and wagon consoles are all different too.
