Here's a little update, a few new parts arrived.








Starting to collect old stock side moldings from Honda

Fogs installed, still need some adjustments though..


LX spotted Cool

The power folding mirrors didn't come with pigtails, found these as well as chrome window crank rings at the junk yard. Now I need to find two more!

Wired up, made some adjustments on fitment.. Still not perfect but its okay for now; going to make some grommets and tweak them again a bit.



Oh how I love these floormats!

Except that the rears are grey Sad











Enjoy!

Thanks dude, moving out of my house mid month so updates may not come anytime soon. But my new house is awesome. Have a nice work space/storage space but only downfall is I don't have a garage, just a car port.  Sad

Yeah man, I will still have a car port, thinking about getting some sort of netting to put up at night when Im wrenching so I don't get bugs flying in my face. But  this place has a work bench and loads of storage attached to the car port which also has electricity. I am excited to clean it all up and have a nice work space. The house is just an all around better situation than our current house, even without the garage. Very Happy

Thanks man, got another shipment from Honda a few weeks back, which is pretty much everything that I need to build this bad girl back up after paint. Im sure I will find a few misc things that I will still pick up but I am done placing large orders. Been so busy I haven't had any time to work on the sedan; also starting to search for a cheap daily so I don't have to beat it up anymore. I got the mats for a great price, I paid $250 shipped from Hungary. Someone on ebay is asking $500 for them which blows my mind..

Been busy with moving, fixing up my work area and many other things that life has thrown at me as of lately. Sadly one of those things has not been working on the sedan.. This is not really much of an update, really just a few pictures here and there. Got another order from Honda a few weeks back; enjoy!










New parts wall



EQ and cassette decks I recently purchased



OEM bumper I robbed from a sedan at pull a part, the SI lip fits beautifully on it. Very Happy


Photo's from my visit to NYC last week

Thanks Jon, it took me a long time to find a clean OEM front bumper, went to look at one the day before I picked this one up. Drove 45 minutes to get it to find out it was warped to hell on one side, hate dealing with people sometimes...

Sorry Robb, none of my radios are for sale. Two of them do work but the screen on one needs to be repaired.

Thank you, not all JDM parts though.. A lot of USDM and EDM as well. I do indeed purchase a lot of the old stock from Honda, some of it comes from ebay and personal collectors though.

Sorry for the lack of updates, kind of at a standstill at this point with my sedan. Although I did manage to install my PFM finally. Enjoy!



New audio set up


Dissecting my power folding mirrors, having some issues with the drivers side mirror folding. The motor is fine but it needs a little nudge to fold in and out. I inspected all of the gears and couldn't find the culprit, I ended up giving up for the time being.




Chrome ring finally installed on my window cranks, still need to find two for the rear windows.


Lots of photo's from last nights meet, a few random ones in the mix as well.










Picked up these two sets of BNIB rear flaps, one set for the wagon and the other for the sedan. Very Happy

Thanks man, it's actually quite simple. The mirror portion mounts to the housing with a small screw at the bottom of the mirrors. There should be a small hole at the bottom of each mirror. Shine a light in there and you should see a phillips head holding the mirror to the housing. Once you remove that screw everything is pretty simple. Taking apart the motor is tedious as hell though. Just making sure none of those tiny bits fall out.

We should try to swap the USDM glass into them.  I've heard it works perfect but I've never tried to disassemble the mirrors.

Not much has changed lately on the sedan, although I have been working on a few little projects here and there.. And of course buying random parts impulsively. Here are a few recent pictures.


Cut some holes and made some grommets for my fog lights on the OEM front bumper I picked up a few months back. Also started sanding down the spare front and rear bumpers.







Also started cleaning up two sets of wheels:
1985-1987 SI wheels, I have a full set that I got for a steal but one of the wheels was sand blasted so the finish will not be the same as the other three. Shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement though.



I picked these 14" CF-48's with aero covers for a great deal from Japan, over all the wheels are in fair shape. Only two small spots that need some metal and two tiny bends. Nothing that can't be repaired.





First round of polishing


Some spots have deeper scratches around the lip than others, I'm worried that sanding some of these spots will ruin the finish.


Picked these headlight covers up as well, the only information I know about them is they came from Australia.. I have seen a few sets of hatchback and crx headlight covers but this is the only sedan set I have come across.




Also finally acquired a hood bra bag and instructions for my full nose mask, now I have the complete set!



Hopefully after the holidays I will find a cheap daily to start tearing into this thing, so ready for it!

Love your collection and hope you can add a hood and filler soon.  I was gonna pull the trigger on those covers until I found out you had dibs.  Glad they went to a good home.

Almost been two months since my last update..  Shocked

Progress has been slow, the motor for my wagon is slowly starting to get re-assembled. I just started school at my local community college this week for auto body, should be a great learning experience. But working a full time job and going to school is going to be hectic; long story short the sedan is not going to see much progress for the next few months. Although towards the end of the semester I will be able to bring it in to work on at our body shop. Hopefully the wagon will be up and running by the time the weather starts to get warmer! Here are a few pictures to  give you guys an idea of where she sits now.











Felt the urge to put the NOS rear upper seat skin on:



Picked up a new set of hub caps off ebay:


And a few more pieces to the puzzle from Honda:




Picked up a set of center caps for my phone dials:


And my new daily, 2015 6MT EX Fit! Got a few accessories for it, no other plans for it besides some spacers and some lowering springs. So far it has been a great car!

Nice original Honda parts! I should do a bodywork project like that but I'd need to do lots of welding! Let me know if you need some Scandinavian parts like heated seats Very Happy. Those grey H emblem mats can be found from Finland. IIRC, I have grey rear mats inside my EE5. I could visit a couple of scrapyards if you guys want more of those mats.

Thank you Very Happy
The only thing I am looking for is a set of black rear rubber mats, I am sure if you found a few sets you wouldn't have any problems selling them to people in the US!
