My Daily Driver

What's up my name is Giovani (Geo is better) and this is my 1990 sedan. I bought this sedan after my EG hatch was stolen. My sedan is a 1990 DX. I love this sedan. Bought it off a kid around my age. I bought it pretty much stock just a minor drop. It had eBay coil over sleeves. It was bouncy but not to much.



As soon as I got it I put my momo steering wheel that I had from my EG. I painted the moldings and bumpers and during that process I dropped one of the fogs and broke the lens, they were autozone ones so I didn't really care. My friend had a extra set of oem prelude fogs and a Volvo lip and I bought them from him. I didn't install them yet.
I saved up money for new suspension since I wanted the car for looks but also since its my daily. Decided on getting legit coil overs and I bought them. The day I installed them one of my friends let me borrow his blades so we can cruise around for a bit. I used tem for about a month.


I mounted the lip a few days after

During that month I saved up for rims and just looked around for nice offset wheels I came across these esm 009 I fell in love with them. They are 15x8 +10 offset



I called many tire shops for tires it took me a week to get some. I wanted 175/50 and I got them I drove a little more than a hour and half for them but we'll worth it



I got home and right away put them on the car. I had to roll the fenders.





I washed and shined her up really good and this is how she sits right now



MaXXuS

Yea man I learned shit happens for a reason though
Geo-93

So I have bad news I guess it was about to happen sooner or later due to high miles but thank god I had a motor set aside, we'll guys my motor blew one night last week on my way back from a friends kick back. I had parked for a week getting my new motor ready for the swap and I got it towed to my friends house. And it was a hard time getting it onto the trailer. I'll let you guys know about progress as it comes along

Bertrand

What motor are you placing into it?
4dred6

Exactly what I was going to ask. How the hell did you got it up in the trailer. Lol.  Let us know whats up with swap. Hope you can get back in da road asap.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Well that sucks man but at least you have a motor to put back in it.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I'm assuming it took a lot of 2x4's and patience, haha.

Sorry to hear about the motor though.  At least you had a backup.  Hope the swap goes well.
Geo-93

I'm dropping a stock single cam again
It's my daily and I am paranoid of getting jacked again so no major swaps for me in this sedan
It was really hard to get it on the trailer a lot of 2x4 was needed and patience I had my brother helping me and and 2 friends
Ill keep you guys updated on the swap when it gets dropped in
wid

What method did you use to roll your fenders?

Your sedan looks great on those wheels, 1st set I have ever seen.  Very nice!
Geo-93

Thanks man
I used a heat gun and tube from the jack worked fine heated the metal and made sure I kept the metal straight so It won't be wavy After dropped it and made sure it was good
I know it sounds ghetto and weird but hey it worked fine nothing happened to body
Make sure you heat it up good or the paint will chip
Geo-93

Update my car is running now andbim happy
For Christmas my girl friend got me a nardi
And man am I happy

HondaJunkie

Thats an awesome girlfriend and nice wheel man it adds a nice touch to the sedan.
Geo-93

Thanks man and she is I love her to death and and I'm helping her fix her civic too
4dred6

the Nardi is sick  Twisted Evil  are your tires 45 or 50 series?
Geo-93

Thanks man
My tires are 50 series
jmanwantsboost

Dope ass car man. I love the drop but that wheel gave me wood. Pun intended lol.
Geo-93

Thanks man
A lot of people are saying that the nardi sets the car off nd completes it gives it that old school finishing touch
Geo-93

So I went to my local hardware store to get bolts for my nardi since it didn't come with any. Just got bolts until I order the bolts I want. I got some at lowes only spent $2.50 on 6 bolts isn't bad. I was thinking I posting this up on interior/exterior thread as a DIY since I seem many people asking for what bolt size it is. I went and got a M5-0.8x16mm bolt and I just took my time installing everything here's a few pictures of the bolts and how everything looks.

These are the bolts I got


These are the bolts compared to my bolts that came with my momo as you can see the ones I bought have a bigger head and the momo ones are rounded so sit lower into the steering wheel



This us how they look on my nardi

4dred6

That's nice. it even looks better imo
89 LX SOHC ZC

Looks good man.
HondaJunkie

Offsets the wheel nicely.
Geo-93

Thanks guys
I have them on for now until I get the bolts I really want from baller bolts
4dred6

Never heard of them, I just went into their website and the bolts are  sick
Geo-93

Yea they are sick ass bolts
Read reviews many are bad so ima just look into other bolts or something but ima try out baller bolts hopefully I get good customer service from them
HondaJunkie

I like those burnt bolts but damn they are expensive. Your car is really clean though so small things like that set it off nicely.
Geo-93

Thanks man I ordered the burnt titanium bolts
I'm looking into the little details that people don't look into or froget about
Geo-93

What's up guys sorry I haven't been on been super busy at work lately but down to business I ordered the burnt titanium bolts from ballet bolts and they never got here I sent he guy emails and called the place and no answer or response I had to file as fraud on my credit card. That place is a rip off honestly. So now I have decided to save up for paint bu I am stuck on colors I was thinking of all black or like a nice tan color.
4dred6

I think it looks badass as is
Geo-93

Thank man I like it red too but I have no good luck with red cars
89 LX SOHC ZC

Man that sucks about the bolts man.
HondaJunkie

Id go with like a tan creme color.
