ef_tovi

for some reason my car doesnt move.  the front right axle locked up some how so the car will be back in the air soon.  sorry no pics but ill get some of the 88-89 taillights and LCA's soon

ef_tovi

*UPDATE*  i ordered eg fog lights and they just came in today and i just lined them up and I am very satisfied on the outcome.  i might make a write up if anybody wants to know how to do it but pics up tomorrow hopefully

Only 15!  All I wanted was a damn car when I was 15, I didn't even know how to change my own tire yet probably at that age!!  Progress is looking good though.  Where did you find such a sweet deal on the wheels?

yep only 15 haha yea i learned most of this stuff cause my dad is a mechanic and i got the enkeis from a family member thats why they were so cheap  Very Happy
ef_tovi

ok eg fogs (no covers):


my stock bumper,  u have to cut a little bit off the bottom left and right corner to make the fog lights fit.  :


when you test fit them drill your own hole and use two zip ties to hold the fog lights in place.  (sorry i forgot to take pics of how i mounted them) :

and thats how they should look
Proper282

I really like how those fogs look in the grill. Any pics with the bumper back on the car?

thanks and I'll get pics of it on the car tomorrow, it was to late when we finished up
Androctonus

Do you have any DIY on how to mount the fogs? i have a set laying around from my old EJ2 :p

it might be a little hard to explain Since I have the bumper on already but yea I'll show you which holes on the fog light tomorrow when I can (I'm using iPhone right now).  All you'll need are about 4 zipties, a drill, and two small screws
ef_tovi

sorry guys i couldnt get pics.  i spent the whole day tryna figure out why my passenger side axle wont spin so i couldnt get any pics.  ill try to get some as soon as possible.

*edit* i just took some pics
ef_tovi



Proper282

How's the light output of the fogs? They look really good. I'm really looking into getting some fog lights, but don't want them to be as big and prominent as the EF or Prelude fogs. The less visible the better. But I want something that is actually going to make a difference. I converted the fogs on my TSX to HID and it was probably the best thing I ever did!

Props to you for doing something different! I like how it turned out
ef_tovi

thanks man and i was actually surprised by the light output, its actually pretty bright and good enough for me
paulhutchi

Dude, I would lov to get a front bumper like your some time...

Your build is looking great, respect..

ef_tovi

I don't have a set of 90-91's to reference from, but when i swapped the 90-91's to 88-89's on my first sedan, i chopped the plugs off both and bought a new set of plugs from a local hardware.

Then it was just a matter of seeing which prong had power in what state (eg: which prong has power when you put the indicator on, which has power when you have it in reverse etc).

Just make sure that the connector you buy has enough prongs to rewire the whole cluster.
ef_tovi

^^alright thanks for the info

plans for this weekend are to get my exhaust welded so ill have one for the car.  hopefully this goes as planned
Motormat

looks nice man keep it up

thanks man,  i really wanted the real round fog foglights but couldn't find them anywhere and plus their to expensive haha so i just decided to try something different
ef_tovi

update*

we didnt get the exhaust welded but we got something much better.  instead we bought a 89 sedan thats runnung for 300 and i will be using little parts off of that.  also i got a magnaflow catalytic converter that im debating if i should put on.

*pics when we get the car down to my house*
ef_tovi

well i havent updated in a while but this is whats been done or what i plan on doing this weekend:

-we got the parts car down here
-putting in 88-89 steering wheel
-getting crx si seats tonight
-car will be back on the ground this weekend hopefully

and i might be ordering some ksport fulll bodied coilovers but thats not anytime soon maybe a month or so
ef_tovi

wow my thread is dead lol but anyways we solved my axle problem and now its miss firing (easy fix)

Also has anyone ever put 89 crx si seats in a 90 sedan?  i really need help with this
ef_tovi

pic update


had to adjust one of my fog lights


rear end and yes the tint will be removed


exhaust on, sooo much quieter now


overall view


decided not to put the crx si seats in or the magnaflow
9jdmef1

the fogs look good i did the same to my sedan a few months back
ef_tovi

^^ thanks

well we decided to fix the first parts car, but now we bought two more sedans for parts.

i also got a free hood bra and a black interior conversion is coming soon. (this weekend maybe)

more pics when i convert the interior
~Sp33~

lol, awesome.
liljoey

cool beans.car is comin along nicely
ef_tovi

^^ thanks

well i realized i cant do the black interior swap cause i have power options and i should be trading my hood bra for a carbon fiber hood tomorrow.  I cant wait! lol
liljoey

wish i would have known that u were sellin a hood bra i would have bought it.lmk if u ever want to sell that lower center console
ef_tovi

sorry joey i dont think i could let go of the center console and the guy with the c/f hood flaked but its cool.  

also i painted my v/c


*PIC UPDATE*

smoothed down the surface with a scraper and sand paper


sprayed


on car



free bra


and the rear end


soo im getting my catback soon and maybe making a ek spoon lip fit as well, we"ll see how it goes.
liljoey

thats understandable.car looks good cant beat gettin a free bra.
Proper282

Car is looking good! I'm still going to steal your fog light idea lol! This month hopefully. Only I think I'm going to order the smoked set and paint the housings matte black for a stealth look. I drive about 10 miles of unlit canyon roads around midnight now(which happens to make my commute just fantastic!) so I'm going to convert them to HID


Oh and your car+batt+valve cover reminds me that easter is around the corner! I'm Lovin it
ef_tovi

haha thanks guys and yea i dont mind if you take the foglight idea its always good to help other people out with ideas for their cars.  and yea the v/c was suppose to match my LCA's but it was a different shade but its cool i like it haha.  

also i tried the spoon ek lip on my car and it fit but it looks funny to me so i took it off. sorry no pics of it mounted though. sorry.
ef_tovi

well my bro got some pretty rare enkei 94's and decided to polish them so that inspired me to do mines.  they're not done yet or even started but i will keep pics posted of the work thats done
ef_tovi

well now im testing waters on the sedan for a hatch cause to many people in my area are getting sedans.  most likely ill keep it though and i also got 2 enkeis semi polished, pics when i get another camera lol
mitsubishiv5

work and progress looks very good.
ef_tovi

Thanks i appreciate that especially coming from you lol
mitsubishiv5

keep your car because you love it, not because of "whats in". Even if it gets to the point where everyone buys a sedan, and everyone rocks the ef2 front end, as long as you love it and charish it you'll still shit on everyone elses car.


just do what you feel is best. You can always source rare jdm goodies, parts noone can get for their own car, or you can just lower your car Razz either way there is so much you can do to these cars that not everyone is alike.



but you made me laugh with your response Smile
ef_tovi

haha yea it was a joke cause i always see people do that to people on honda-tech lol but yea most likely its staying cause theres been too much done to it so its too hard to let go of haha
ef_tovi

well i got 3 wheels semi polished and i might be getting skunk 2 pro c coilovers for 200 tomorrow and sorry about the pics lol ill get some tomorrow
ef_tovi

finally got pics lol sorry been busy with school and we had a recent flooding down here in TN so i couldnt get pics.

pics:
took the bra off cause the pressure washer did some damage to it


(yes, inside the meshes are still blue, i need a sandblaster)


im nowhere near finished with them, still need to wetsand and the deal with the coilovers didnt go through and i dont know whats next for my car
~Sp33~

Paint  Smile
ef_tovi

^^ the car or the wheels?

i was thinking of painting the wheels white but thats only if i cant find someone to sandblast for me

Aircraft stripper FTW!

If those are aluminum wheels the sand will dig into the metal. Glass blasting would be a better option than sand blasting. Same process just different material.
Proper282

X2 on the aircraft stripper.

We actually used it once to strip my friend's entire car once. Went to one of those coin-op car washes and hit it with the gun after we sprayed it with the stripper. LOL There was paint chips EVERYWHERE!!! Wish I had taken a picture.

But it worked out better than we could have hoped for. I will be using it to strip my wheels down to redo them.
ef_tovi

yea i was looking for the paste kind of aircraft stripper but all  i can find is the spray and that one sucks
ef_tovi

back from the dead

well i stripped one wheel completely and there was some bubbly rough material under the paints so i decided to paint my wheels white but no pics cause i dont really like the look.  im gonna do something special with them after i order my coilovers which will be sometime this week.  Ordering my ksports tomorrow or Friday.

once they come in i will get new pics
ef_tovi

well decided not to get ksports (obviously) but i should be picking some GC/Koni's with custom tophats tomorrow for 650 locally.

updated pics:



ef_tovi

well the GC's turned out to be for a DC so decided not to get them.  but i should finally be ordering my new suspension this friday.
ef_tovi

got a new paint job!
crappy cell pic:










sike heres the original lol:


ksports should be ordered later today
EF Sedan Enthusiast

ef_tovi

Thanks!^^

small update, traded my ebay coilovers for stocks.  and coilovers will be here soon
