Flat Tire's Sedan build

This car is going to be my daily 'looker'. I bought this car almost a year ago when my wife and I were going through some fincial troubles. She drove it and I brought the ol' girl back up to a stable running state. When we picked it up it had cut springs in the front and was very difficult to drive. It bottomed out everywhere! On the up&up, everything works. The power locks, all the power windows the cruise, and even the A/C!! When I got it I thought the power steering might've been burned out. Amazingly enough, all it needed was a belt! LOL!

I hope to come into this forum and discover more for aftermarkets for the sedans. Cross-over conversions and such as well. I have an idea in mind for this car and the goals in which I wish to obtain with it. Please keep in mind, I also have a EF/ ED7 Hatchback that I work on as well. With my new aquired car, the hatch is going under the knife and more than likely becoming my 'Weekend Warrior'/ Show Car, but progress on the sedan will be slow. I've been into the EF chassis' since the first time I saw a '91 CRX when I was 15. Something about that car just struck me in a way I couldn't explain.

Sorry I don't have more pics at the moment, as I said this car really hasn't been a huge priority until recently.


I will be getting some speaker pods for it and some coils over to drop it down and level her out better, within the next week or so. Hopefully... Well, I hope you enjoy. Feel free to ask questions! LOL!

Car looks really nice man, lovin the meshies  Cool

Nice sedan.  I know what you mean, there's something about these body lines that grabs you and never lets go.

Thanks! Oh how true that is! LOL! Cool
90EFSedan

Nice! Let me know when you go to get rid of them (if you dont trade Wink). I may buy them if the shipping isn't a killer, I've been on the look out for a set but no one around here wants to get rid of theirs.. Guess thats the price of living in a town you can pee across  Rolling Eyes
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Or maybe I'll take them off your hands.  How far are you from Houston?
Proper282

Glad to see you posting over here. The sedan market can be limited in some ways, but that just forces us to get creative.
I just got my lx rolling this weeknend and wow! I'm already lovin the power windows, mirrors, locks, and cruise lol!

Looking forward to your progress and input around here.

Well I won't be trading, simply because the money that I get from them is goin to help pay for my next set of wheels. I just put em on my friends EG coupe last night so that they don't just sit and rot the tires off, but when I get the chance I'll see how much they weigh to give a general idea on how much it will possibly take to ship them.

EF Sedan Enthusiast, I live in Fort Worth, but I don't wanna come in here and start a squabble over a set of wheels. Besides It looks like 90EFSedan could benefit from a good set of wheels, instead of havin to run steelies. What do you think??

Thanks for the welcome! I'm starting to see what you mean about the aftermarket, but then again it's the same problem I had when I had my '83 Olds Cutlass. No aftermaket, hardly for the original 307 v-8. Everyone kept telling me to take it out and drop a 350 in it. I'm a machinist... you think I was thwarted? LOL! Heck no!

I know what you mean about all the power accesories! My cruise stopped working, but I think I know why, but yeah this car spoils the crap outta me! Never thought I'd enjoy a slush box so much! LMAO!

The biggest thing I'm lookin to do most imediately, is rebuild a D15 for it and get her runnin really sharp. She's a little wore out, which is to be expected, but I've been in this game too long just to run somethin into the ground! So rebuild is always the next step! LOL! I'm not goin crazy with this one like I did my hatch, but I'll be playin around here and there. I've been thinkin of a way to make the "mushroom top" in take a lil more attracive and work better. I have a 5-axis CNC at my work... possibilties are almost limitless!
FlatTireRacer

Got my coil-overs last night and I am loving them!!!







Put the slips on because I don't want those brand new tires just sitting on the the hatch getting flat sides while the car sits and get worked on. So I put the suspension from the sedan and the steelies I have and tossed those under the hatch. You'd cry if you saw it... I almost did.

Get you some better ones later. These were taken with a friends iPhone 4G.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

No worries about the wheels.  I wasn't trying to say sell them to me instead of him.  Just wanted to let you know incase he passes.

It looks good on the slips.

Ah gotcha! Yes it's alway good to have options! Very Happy  Thanks for the compliment! It does look pretty good on the Slips. I agree, but what I plan on, is goin to just set this baby off! Can't wait!!

Some I got this morning...




88browncow

Looking good. I like the color combo with the slips
FlatTireRacer

Thanks man!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yeah I agree with browncow.
90EFSedan

Car looks damn good after the drop. The new wheels look slick too. And I promise I won't be all butthurt if I don't get the meshies, lol. If I have the cash when you get ready to sell them I'll take 'em, if not its all good. My car is a very slow coming project, lol.
FlatTireRacer

Thanks! It's under review as to wether or not these are goin to stay on the sedan or go back to the hatch. Undecided as of yet. This is what the look like on my hatch...

Alright man, no prob. I just didn't wanna be comin up in here seemin like I was steppin on anyone's toes, lol! I want to go lower with the drop but I dunno yet. This height is functional and I've only hit the underside on one speed bump. I keep three wheelin driveways though! Lmao!! When I do it, I imagine what it looks like to the people passing.. "What? What the hell did that car just do?" ROFLMAO!!!
90EFSedan

lmao I hear ya, mine isn't really all that low at all but the roads around here are a freakin joke. And I have to go over two sets of railroad tracks that are on a pretty good incline.. I take that route at least 1-3 times a day.. The flaps drag everytime, lol. I'm waitin for the day I hit them just right and run over the poor bastards  Rolling Eyes
Proper282

Your flaps scrape at the railroad crossings? Sheeeeeit! My dx would drag flaps if I hit the crown of the road just right! And they were already shaved down to the bottom of the Honda logo!  Very Happy

Love the sedan on slips bro! And I followed the build of your hatch on ef-honda... Clean rides.

LOL! I start getting paranoid when my flaps start draggin. Had a CRX I dropped and had to remove em. LOL!

It's nice to know that there are a few people following the hatch. Gives me more motivation.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

My last EX had barely any mud flaps left, haha.

I like the slips on the hatch better.  What would you put on the sedan?
FlatTireRacer

I'm lookin at gettin some Drag DR-20's. I know, I know. They're knockoffs, but my budget does supply O.G. Balla parts right now... That's why I wanna sell the Meshies. Otherwise I'd keep everything and just be a wheel whore! LOL!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

DR-20's would look great.

Then that just make me feel all the more welcome here.

Tried to go to a meet this weekend for another forum I'm on. It's run by a bunch of teenagers... Organization like a twin ball play in a pinball machine. Ended up headin to a friends instead.
I have a very strong lead on a parts EF sedan. It's a whole car, that's been sitting for a LONG time. Still debating bringin it back up and selling it as a driver to someone. Dunno yet.
FlatTireRacer

So... I'm gonna go out on a limb here and make an executive desicion. The desicion being: I'm planning now to tear the hatch down and sell it as a rolling shell. I'm gonna take the B16 drivetrain and shoehorn that monster down into the sedan. I'm having too much fun in this 4door (I never thought I'd say that about a car with more than 2 doors)! I just need something with a little more Umph! A friend of mine suggested building up one of the D16's I have and convert to mulit-point, but then my imagination got the best of me and the next thing you know, I've lost complete interest in my hatch.
  I really half expected this. I figure if I want to later I can always build another one. Right now I need the fun family car, because that is where a lot of my attention is going, is to my family. Why not have the best of both worlds?? So I'll be doing a lot of research on how, not only to convert to B-series VTEC  but also to convert to a clean looking 5-speed as well. I'll be giving informative pictorials too, so stay tuned if you want to know how to do this to one of your cars in the future! Wink
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I second the decision!  Looking forward to the build.
FlatTireRacer

EF Sedan Enthusiast wrote:

Thanks!

A few questions: 1st, Is there a B16 ECU with cruise or is the cruise an independant function from the ECU? 2nd, will I have to find a 5-speed rear cross member, can I use the CRX/hatch one without modifications? Which one do I need? I had a friend tell me, since it's an auto, you have to relocate the passenger side tranny mount. Is this true?
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I know the mount is true and I think the cruise is separate.  However, you'll want to do some more poking around to find out for sure.
FlatTireRacer

I just posted the Mesh wheels in the F/S threads. Hope I can get these gone soon.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Originally I wanted them, but after seeing my wheels, I'mma stick with them.  GL on the sale though.  I'm sure someone will pick them up quick.
FlatTireRacer

Alright man. NP Spread the word. Game On!
89 LX SOHC ZC

I was the same way, if it had more than two doors it was for the family not me until I was forst into my sedan by the repo man three year ago now I wouldent trade it for anything.

LOL! Right? I'm slowly getting that way! Hell I even have a friend now contemplating getting rid of both his EG's and gettin a EF sedan! I keep tellin him to do it! Wink
FlatTireRacer

Figured I'd give you guys some interior shots.




Got it tinted.


Watch out! It's a Monstah! LOL!




Sorry about all the dirt. It rained yesterday and I'm too broke to give her a washing right now. I'll be doin some work on her this weekend! Stick around for that. Tastes like EX knuckles and Si rear discs! MMM...!
FlatTireRacer

Ok... Yet another executive decision. I put the hatch down thinking I'd take the time to build it back up and make it a show car. Turns out I'm going to have to just bite the bullet and sell it. I'm having a friend come over and we're gonna have a triple pull double install week. He's broke and doesn't have a job, so another friend and I are going to commission him to pull the two D16Z6's from the two EG's he has. We're installing the relatively fresh crate motor from the one that's wrecked into his DD and taking his current DD motor and putting it into the hatch. I have to sell the hatch and I know I'll get more for it running as opposed to  selling it as a shell. The white Slips will probably be going with the hatch since they do kinda complete the car. My J's Racing Rep. lip will NOT be going with the hatch, so if anybody would like to offer for it I'll sell it for $150.00. I paid $200 for the damn thing DON'T think you can low-ball me on this one. I also still have two minty Si hatche dashes ($50/pc) that I need to move and a stock USDM (Red) Spoiler($25). When the dust settles Spidermonkey will have a few EG parts to sell from his coupe and I'll have a SOHC VTEC Si EF hatch for sale. I'm looking for $3000 for the hatch. The car is straight and has a clean title, and as far as I can tell it's never been wrecked. Well lemme know if you or someone you know might be interested. I hate to have to let it go, but desperate times call for desperate measures...
90EFSedan

What is the spoiler off of? and can you get a pic? I may take it off your hands if its still available when my Nova sells.
FlatTireRacer

its a really straight hatch spoiler. If you'd like to take a peek @ the hatch the NWP link is at the bottom of my sig.
90EFSedan

I may know someone that will buy it but it wouldn't look right for a sedan lol.
FlatTireRacer

90EFSedan wrote:

Um...no. I don't even wanna think on how it'd be attached. I almost forgot! I have an extra hatch door as well! Has good glass with defrosters too!Very nice piece. It's actually what the spoiler came off of! LOL!
FlatTireRacer

Update, update, update!

So I finally got off my lazy ass and did some work on my car!
The old prop valve...


The CRX prop valve installed!


Gotta pull out all the interior to get to the park brake cables. Disconnect those...




...and move on to unbolting the trailing arms from the car.




With the drum arm out of the way, the disc arm is ready to go on!


Sux cause I dropped the fuel cell to get to the spot where the old park brake cables went into the car. Figured out later that I prolly didn't have to do that... Oh well.




If I'd have just removed that heat shield above the exhaust I think I could've wormed evreything out with that out of the way.

Ticked me off when I found out that the CRX cables are too short. I'll have to save up some money to get the cables for the EX Sedan so I can have the proper length cable and gain my parkin brake back.

Os here she is with the functioning rear disc setup from a CRX!


The matching EX front knuckles...




I had some CRX mudguards laying around and decided to put thos on too. They don't fit perfect But they fit for the most part.


Next step... Exhaust!
89 LX SOHC ZC

You can do the swap without dropping the tank like I did but im shure its easier with out of the way.You can use 4 door da integra cables for the ebrake.

Really!?! I might just have to do that! Just might save my ass a ton of trouble! Finding these EX one's is like pulling teeth! OMG!

yep 4 door da integras are a dime a dozen here in cali so I had no problem finding them in the junk yard.

For REALZ!!! I'll pony up $60 to whoever can ship me a good working set for my sedan! Makes me paranoid as hell not havin a park brake!!!

Man, i need to do that rear drum swap out thing... I just cannot find the disk brakes anywhere around me....If anyone can get me those for a good deal... hit me up...

The sedan started dying today... Been having some overheating issues a lot lately and I think that it all finally got to the poor girl. She started blowin the head gasket. Lotta moisture comin outta the tailpipe and she doesn't hardly idle on her own right now. Gonna have to perform some rescue surgery this weekend (if she makes it that far...) Crying or Very sad

Decided to make the resistor box a lil more appealing.


90EFSedan

Gotta love how simple shit makes a big difference, lol, the resistor box looks awesome.

And those Greddy decals are the shit I have a couple on my toolbox lid at work. They look wicked in the sun Very Happy
~Sp33~

Haha, your resistor box now looks like one of those Rover valve covers
89 LX SOHC ZC

The resistor box cool mlght have to steal that idea lol.
ed4-eddy

resistorbox looks nice. would steal that idea too, but mine´s not in the engine bay Very Happy
FlatTireRacer

You guys have at that resistor box idea! I'm glad you like it!

Well, if everything goes right, I should hopefully have the head set for the sedan on Friday. I need to get this car runnin again. Been kinda neglecting my duties since I put the hatch back on the road. Not only that, I'm flat broke right now. There won't be much progress on the sedan unfortunately. I'm keeping the sedan but my wife has asked me to grant it to my Mother-In-Law when she moves back into town... I can already see where this is goin... Confused  So I'll prolly start puttin my coins back to save up and buy another one. 5speed this time, that way I don't have to screw with converting the damn thing! LOL! So, I'll keep you guys posted!
89 LX SOHC ZC

That sucks man good luck.
FlatTireRacer

What is up EFCW?? Holy crap it has been a MINUTE since my last post in here. I kinda left you poor guys hangin and I deeply apologize for that! I have some updates, to say the least! Wow, where to start... Ok, so I eventually sold the sedan to a good friend of mine who has since put a ZC in it and then went to the army. He's coming back home soon and should be finishing the car. I packed up all my family and moved out of Texas to Florida and am loving it. Just wish I got a little more free time. I had the hatchback repainted before I left Texas and the painter screwed me over. I lost heart in my lil hatchy and I broke down and sold it too. Through much trial and error I have since picked up a reasonably straight 90 Civic Wagon! I hope this still fits the criteria as it does have 4 doors. I know it's pretty much a different animal but it's still similar. Anywho, I picked this beast up with a B18 shoehorned under the hood! I'll be getting pics up as soon as I get my internet turned back on. I just hope you guys aren't too sour at me. The last few months have been pretty close to insanity. Well, that's enough for now! Happy motoring! Wink
89civicracer

Where in Florida?
FlatTireRacer

Central Florida. Lake Wales to be exact. So far, I love it out here!
89 LX SOHC ZC

Welcome back  man good to here all is well.
FlatTireRacer

Thanks man! It's good to be back! Smile I'm so excited! Just got finished with the window track for the windshield last night! Tonight I'm prolly gonna wetsand and scuff the whole car to get it ready for the paint i'm gonna be throwin on it!

If anyone needs a fresh B18/20 head I got one withe the car and I don't need it. Comes with what looks like a set of brand new BC cams. I also have a full set of BMW bottlecaps on the car. I don't really like them too much. Lookin for 200 outta the head and 150 for the wheels. If anyone has wagon parts I'm in need of sidemarkers (the ones by the headlights) and under dash stuff.
Edison Carasio

The resistor box dress up is cool.  Little things like that make a world of difference.  Really digging the car over all.
FlatTireRacer

I don't have the sedan anymore bro. I don't even have my hatch anymore. I have since bought myself a wagon. I do appreciate the compliment on the injector box. Expect to see more ingenuity on the Wagon tho as I intend make a LOT of things from scratch. Smile

Does anyone know where I can pick up a set of clear corner for the wagon?? Been lookin through google and keep seein wagons with clear corners and I want a set! Don't say ebay, been there, done that.

There we go! A BIG 'Thank You!' goes out to a close friend of mine! Now, the blue is how I got it, the black is how it is now. Those bottlecaps are for sale gentlemen! Smile

S'all good. I understand you're busy. Thanks.

I have some spectacular news! This has truly become a blessing. Because the wagon needs so much work and I have absolutely NO resources around me I have quickly lost interest in my wagon. So I put it up for sale. I never would've guessed how much attention that would garner... Anyways, I was thinkin on sellin it and gettin a cruiser motorcycle of some type. Well aparently the wife had enough and she went off. So I gathered my pride and went searching again. Lo-and-behold I found a lil red 5speed sedan Just 2 hours from my house!! The only major thing wrong with it is that it needs the front and rear motor mounts! Someone slap me I MUST be dreamin!! So When I sell the wagon I'm haulin ass out there tonight and buyin this ho up! Oh man, I'm so excited! Just by lookin at it this car is exactly what I've been lookin for! Hooray!
~Sp33~

Wow you move fast. Goodluck with the new sedan!
89 LX SOHC ZC

Cool news man cant wait to see some pics.
FlatTireRacer

Well so much for me scooping up my dream sedan... Stupid asshole that was supposed to buy my wagon decided to flake at the last minute. So now I'm stuck with this damn wagon in my garage that I can't fix because I can't source the parts for it. So pissed about this. I don't want this wagon. I want a sedan. I know I'm just bein bitchy, but it's gettin ridiculous.

So I'm still on the hunt. If anyone knows of a relatively decent sedan I might be able to purchase for a grand, lemme know. Please. I need it running and drivable.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Well that sucks it seems like there are more flakes out there every day.
FlatTireRacer

Finally picked up a vehicle! It's still a Honda and I'm having a good time with it.

Here she is, headed home!






Did some detailing to my bar cotrols.




Picked up some mirrors too!




Some more detailing






Motorcycle:Discovered!


That's all for now guys. I realize I'm getting off topic with this, so I'll not go on with this until I get another sedan. Keep motoring guys, and I shall return! I will check in every so often though!

Hellzyeah!! It just kept getting better that evening! Got out there expecting just run of the mill LX. Lo-and-behold I found in front of me a true White EX Sedan. Complete with original D16A6! OMG I am so stoked about this find! There's really only 2 bad dents in the whole car. One is in the quarter panel above the tail light and the other is in the rocker panle under the rear drivers door. The roof is even straight on this thing! I didn't see or feel any hail dents at all! Plus it came sitting on (probably knock-off's) Mugen MF-10's!

Not in Florida anymore. Sad Had to move back to Texas. Turns out I had too much legal debt in Texas to stay in Florida.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yeah meant to ask you about that.  What part of TX?

Fort Worth
FlatTireRacer

OK Ladies and Gents, here's some of what you've been waiting for. Preview pics! Don't pick her apart too badly, she's been sitting for a while. These are from the ride home.





Got out and started doing some 'detective' work this afternoon. Found out that it wasn't a timing belt that snapped. The joker that previously owned it ran it out of oil! Locked the poor girl up tighter than a drum. Sucks. I was really hoping it was a timing belt.

So, needless to say I am on the hunt now for one of two things. First I need to get this ol'girl running. Even if it means tossing a 1.5 bottom end in it while I rebuild the 1.6. So either a rotating bottom end from a 1.5 or a 1.6 are in immediate order. I'm saving up money as we speak, I have a few items for trades and I'm going to be contacting the local junkyards. Hopefully I can get the lil girl on the road before the sticker's run out on it.

Nice ex find... Im a jump and a skip in dallas
