87 ED4 Build Up Story

Hey guys...time to start my project thread:)
but at first: sorry if my english isn't that good or ghetto-proofed enough Laughing

around 3 months ago i bought my second 4th gen civic.
a 87 civic ed4 with 110hp d16 engine...i bought it for 150€
really cheap cause in germany the sedans are very rare.
first thing i've seen was rust, rust and much more rust!

first thing i did:
get the hell outa here^^

also the wrecked front axle found it's way out:

because i hate swap mounts:


so the engine was in....

THE PEOPLE WANT TO SEE MORE!!! lol, cant wait to see it come together

Niiccee!!! Dont pee on the D series!!

Welcome. ... nice sedan
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Nice, looking forward to seeing more Very Happy

thx for your comments!
time for updates! Laughing

i just put all the cables in, to look if the motor's running!

the fuse box found it's way under the dash. i also tucked the lightning wires etc....

map sensor and these stuff went also under the dash.

seems to be clean enough, some little cleaning jobs will come later;)

the air intake is not the correct sollution, i know. but the engine can't wait to get itīs biggest update so it wasn't that important to me Wink

after doin' all that i cleaned the axle parts, coloured them and put a energy suspension masterkit in:

my buddy donīt like the handling with coilovers Laughing

@ef sedan enthusiast: the other two sedans belong to one person:P
