I am constantly doing something to this car weather big or small, I'll keep the updates in here.  And I will post some real nice pics of the car soon too.

Just picked this guy up from the junkyard.  I am planning on going with a blue chrome theme under the hood, still WIP.  And still need a wire tuck..

After 6 coats and repeated sanding, this is what I got.

More work under the hood.

Cleaned off the header a bit.


Got this fuel rail off a 94 civic, drilled the mounting holes and polished it up.


Also ordered a REAL chrome type r oil cap, some jdm tail lights and new filters, still waiting to get my wire tuck.

Thank you!

Real oldschool feel to this build, look forward to the progress.
MaXXuS

Just got back tonight and these were waiting for me.  Going to put them on tomorrow with some more pics.  Chrome trim for the window edging, silver/chrome filter, and authentic type r chrome oil cap.  (Still waiting on 88-89 JDM tails, EF floor mats and "H" center caps.
MaXXuS

Got my "H" center caps trimmed and put them on, also got my tail lights and put those on as well as a couple other things under the hood and my instruction booklet.  I will post some pics tomorrow, I just moved and have this crappy wifi connection for a couple more days so it takes for ever to do anything on here.
MaXXuS

Some more pics:
- I put the chrome trim back on the window edges (got it for 15 bucks off ebay, looks awesome, just like the OEM trim).
-Put my "H" center cap on the GT3's.
-Put some JDM tail lights on her.
-Got my 1991 Owners manual in the mail.

Sweet man.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

It's official, I'm in love with your sedan.
MaXXuS

Thank you sir!  I am going to try to post a good set of pics tomorrow, as well as updated bay pics.  Still on this crappy internet connection till tomorrow afternoon.  It takes a painstakingly long time to upload pictures and get to any webpage for that matter.
MaXXuS

New filter's, chrome type-r oil cap, new radiator cap.  Quick polish and clean up.  Got my internet so more pics tomorrow.

MaXXuS

Just picked these up, planning on having them matched to my interior.



Also added this, we will see how well it does.

MaXXuS

Just a quick update, got these headrests in the mail, going to get them upholstered to match the stock interior.  Also got an LED dome light as well as ordered some real euro clears (not stanley though, still sweet ass corners).  I put the original temp control unit back in too, electro just wasnt meant to be in this model.

Why didn't you like the electronic HVAC?

Just didn't really fit the car and the peice around the heater control broke so I had to put a plate on it to fix it and then for some damn reason I couldnt get it to sit straight.

Wow. The engine bay looks very good.

Annoying. My mint one broke recently... There are few things that bring a grown man to tears but this was definitely one of them.
MaXXuS

Finally got around to installing the euro clears I ordered.  Definitely glad I went with those, thanks for the idea enthusiast.  Also waiting on my crx headrest to get re-upholstered and then I will post some new pics up.  ALSO just got in contact with someone in europe (via ebay) who is going to hook it up with the chrome grill.

EF Sedan Enthusiast

Corners look great.  I'm going to be sourcing a pair of 90/91 soon.
MaXXuS

Here is another corner pic and also working some small details, had older color/overspray in gas door so I decided to clean it up sand and paint satin black.  Also order some 1/4" chrome trim for the tail lights.  Still waiting on my edm chrome grill.

4dred6

your car is looking hella clean
bac_ed36

Loving the car. Keep up the good work Very Happy
MaXXuS

Thanks for the comments gents, some newer interior details.  Custom carpets (modeled after OEM carpets), same shape and quality, but no civic insignia.  Installed wiring for light-up cigarette lighter and coin tray also.  Hopefully I get my headrests finished soon.








EF Sedan Enthusiast

Nice, very clean.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Sweet.
MaXXuS

Crappy cell pick, but put the trim on the tail lights, not sure if 1/4 was too small, but I will stick with that.  NOW if I can just get a damn edm/jdm chrome grill...  outside is getting closer to where I want it, my only other thought is painting the hood and roof the same as the rest of the car, but I don't know if I want to change the colors..

^ looks good bro

MMMM  Twisted Evil

Thanks, I had to hunt down the chrome grille..I actually after months of searching contacted a guy on ebay who was selling euro corners and one bulb EDM headlights.  I asked him if he could get a hold of one and he told me he would let me know when he found one because they are hard to come by.  Low and behold he contacted me about 5 months later with an invoice.  The molding is universal, but it was used on some of the EDM models.

Not as of late, my job causes me to fall off of the face of the earth sometimes but I should have some new work coming in Oct - Nov timeframe.  On another note the forum looks great and lots of good cars have been surfacing!  Great banner right now!  I'll be in and out until I get back to work on the ol' sedan within the next couple months.  She's probably mad at me right now..
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Cool
