i know, i know. not a sedan, RT4WD

i've been out of the sedan business for a while, since mine was totaled. Sad  

i picked up this RT4WD for $250, same as what i paid for my first sedan.

i'm gonna go pretty low with this thing. lower than my sedan hopefully, unless the 4wd inhibits that.

throwback to the sedan.


onto the wagon.  Cool










and two days later, i woke got back from san fran to this..



if its worthy for a project log, spee, please move this thing.
and how low can i safely go with this thing? Cool
~Sp33~

To the ground.  Smile



When you get some progress i'll move it to the project log.

i'm looking into getting my real time 4wd stickers remade. my old ones are tattered, faded, and messed up. does anybody know if i can get some replacement ones? like the DOHC VTEC stickers on the sides of the cr-x or SIr hatch?

if not, i'm getting them made.

i'm hoping to keep it operational when i put my cd deck in.

sorry for the filth of my wagon. i don't have it road ready, so i can't wash it.

I hate you.................................









But seriously, for 250 you can't knock it! I want RT4wd Soooooo bad! But in my area if you can find one in running cond it will cost you an arm and a leg! Cant wait to see progress pics. You better keep posting here!

BTW Anyone think it is insanely difficult to convert a sedan to 4WD? I am SOOO down for the challenge. Spee would know... what are the differences from a standard sedan to an AWD model? Obviously the transfer case and driveshaft. The fuel tank different?

Yeah it is. The rear of the car is a different shape. I actually have less boot space to accommodate the rear differential.

so i pulled off some tint today. hopefully i'll finish tomorrow with the other rear window. then i'll be finished with tint removal.
~Sp33~

Is it leaving glue shit all over your windows?

the first tint i removed did, but all of the others haven't. i used a hair dryer to warm up the glue, and peel the tint straight off. so easy that way.

slammed wagon!!! yay! Very Happy i want a wagon some time, maybe i'll get one next winter since i cant drive my sedan on the winter time.

I can even go lower than this with that combo, but i'm low enough as it is now.

cleanRENO90

cleanRENO90

sunday update!!

i put my back doors, and hatch on.  

i also lowered it in the front. not the back yet.  Laughing





~Sp33~

I love the dual tone effect the front bumpers have on the wagoo's. I wonder if they're interchangeable with the sedan like the hatch bumpers are.

*moved to project logs*
cleanRENO90

the wagon bumpers fit only on 88-89 civics. i don't think any of the years of wago's will fit on 90-91's

i'm gonna do the brake swap from my EX to my RT. i want better stopping power.  Very Happy
~Sp33~

Doesn't the RT have the same brakes as the EX? I know my sedan came with bigger brakes than my non 4wd sedan.

i don't think so. these brakes are tiny looking. i haven't checked to see if 13 inch steelies fit over it or not.

can i just swap the caliper, spindle, and what not over, or should i just put the whole EX knuckle on?
update: i'm picking up a z6 for it on saturday. Very Happy
Mattes

Laughing great Wink
~Sp33~

If you can, just go with the whole EX knuckle i reckon.

Front? Do your CRX's run intermediate shafts? If they do they're the same as the wagon.

Or just get yours rebuilt... Usually costs around the same as new ones anyway.

CRX's don't run intermediate shafts. But, I got rid of this thing a long time ago, bought a Toyota pickup, and a turbo'd sedan since then.
