I have like  2 inch gap from my da center console to the dash center console. How did you get yours to fit so perfectly. I was debating on bringing mine to a boat shop to have it fiberglass. Any easier solution.

So today I went to drive the civic to pick up some goodies I found on cl and found someone had try to steal it in the middle of the day while I was asleep the drivers window was pulled out of the frame  and the ignition was hanging on off the column and the harness under the dash had been pulled apart :/ I hope my insurence can help me cover some of the cost, patrick to make that console fit so tight I drilled a hole in the passenger side lower dash support I just kind of snugged it up and poked a sharpie through the hole in the console then tap and drill and I used a small sheet metal screw to make it hold well

I think the rear disc upgrade will be great I camt wait to install them,  it sucks what happened today but it coild have been a lot worse at least they only broke shit and didn't take anything but ill have to have a new window seal and motor on the drivers side as well as a bit of bodywork for what happened on the inside window frame, and an ignition and some wiring work from where they went to town on the column and a passenger window seal they broke that as well, I talked with my insurence agents and they will pay all but my $250 deductible ed civic is going on a flatbed to import sports just down the block from me to get all fixed up hopefully ill have him back in a week or so, I was able to find a free thule wind fairing today from a buddy all I need now is locks and a bike tray and ill be good ill keep you fellas up to date on Ed as the week goes on

Okay guys last time i posted i had sad news about my sedan but i have put together an awesome update. if anything I was not set back by my misfortune I only have gone harder with my EF addiction. I started hanging with Honda Junkie and we have made some great stuff happen. i snapped a few pics of our sedans the day we first met up. we also removed the A/C and installed my free no name header that night.















Soon after I picked up a pretty clean STD hatch to clean up for my Dad to have a nice gas sipper. It was dirty and needed little things here and there.


















I got some HX wheels from a friend on the cheap they had seven layers of paint that I stripped off. i then spent 10+ hours a wheel cleaning and polishing them at first with an electric multi tool then by hand at my kitchen table......I have the best roommates ever to put up with my craziness.










I was able to get them wrapped in some new tires and added to Pops hatch. They came out great I think. I took them a long way it was my first set of wheels I got down and dirty with







I removed the broken 90s tape deck and replaced it with a coin cup combo. I also found a stock Honda 2400 tape deck to include with the car when I gave it to my Dad in case he wanted some sound.










also added a clean 1991 owners manual to the hatch and picked up a 1990 warranties booklet for the sedan. as well I have gotten a Japanese sedan brochure

 








Got some new Konis for the front of the sedan i have some used ones for the rear to match




Before i could give my dad his hatch it needed a good cleaning it had already been clay bared and waxed really well but the inside was still not as clean as it could have been. Honda junkie and I removed the seats Shampooed the carpets,and mats,Installed a center console and put in a fresh headliner















Here Iam with my Pops when he got his hatch the day after the mega cleaning




The very next day I was bothered by the empty space in my driveway. So I hoped online and found a guy who traded me an 88 CRX si for my 200 si wheels. I replaced the water pump timing belt,and battery and drove it home 90 miles with no problems










I have recently been hording suspension goods for the sedan I have some koni yellows and some used ground control eibach springs/sleeves with GC extended tophats all around





I recently swapped my Nardi Nrg setup for some GSR fat fives with tires plus some cash on the other end. I should have some free time soon to drop the sedan on them now that all of my goods are here.

sooo its been a really long time. I finally got a new pc and figured Id add to this thread.







so not to long after my last update I installed my koni/GC combo and some 92s I ran this setup for about 1000 miles and 3 months. Personally I hated the suspension setup no matter how I adjusted the shocks or how high I got the ride to be I always bottomed out and pretty quickly destroyed my HKS midpipe and the front mudguards. I actually ended up selling the sedan to a close friend of mine for a bit after the last pic with my pops here.

after about 4 mouths and a clean GSR swapped eg coupe I bought my sedan back from my close buddy. He had changed a few things up to make it more friendly as a daily driver. It now sat on some tokiko blues and eibach springs.




After driving the sedan as a daily for a little bit I decided to change up the suspension a bit and buy some skunk2 full body coils. I still run this setup and really have enjoyed the improved handeling over the fan boy koni/gc stuff and silly stretched tires on wide wheels





for a bit after this I started cleaning up my black interior with a momo Honda wheel an OEM tapedeck and EQ and also and under seat tray.




I kept collecting suspension bits and started planning for my next setup. the D16a6 was starting to show its age at near 200k and all the bushings and balljoints were wearing out as well the sedan was going to need major attention soon.







so over the course of the next winter I got busy on some major upgrades. I swapped the entire car over to 4x114 ITR rolling stock with all new energy bushing,new balljoints,Skunk2 front upper control arms and rear camber kit.While I was under there I installed an innovative traction bar to help prepair for my up coming B swap. I also added the willwood 4 piston calipers up front. added stainless lines and ebc pads out back with green stuff pads and some ebc rotors up front to match. after new tie rod ends and a good 4 wheel alighnment this thing drives like a dream.










while the sedan sat with its competed suspension I got to work on the motor end of the car. I wanted a lot more than the single cam would ever be able to offer. I picked up a GSR bottom end and started the rebuild. I added PCT CTR pistons fresh hone new rings,bearings,ARP hardware all around and a cometic head gasket. For the top end of things I wanted to go wild. I had a local shop send the B16a head off to be CNC ported and re assembled with skunk2 LMAs and a complete supertech stainless valvetrain. I topped this off with some JDM CTR cams 850cc injectors (for E85) AEM 320 fuelpump and AEM FPR and a liquid filled pressure gauge. Also I scored a super good deal on a Skunk2 ultra manifold with a mathiching 68mm throttlebody. Up front I ran an OG GReady Header wrapped in titanium heat wrap.



for the transmission I used a GSR cable. I had a good buddy of mine rebuild it with an Mfactory LSD Mfactory Custom long first gear Mfactory 4.7 final drive and all new bearings plus carbon lined syncrotech master kit with new seals. To top it off I used an LS 5th gear, and a 12lb flywheel and comp stage 2 clutch kit.





Bye Bye single cam











Along the way I have also completely revamped the cluster with an Omni tachometer with built in shift light. When I retrofitted everything with LEDs I added my car club logo on the reverse side as my own personal touch. I also rebuilt a black DA armrest with new foam and fabric. I even went so far as lining the inside with black velvet. I was lucky enough to find a set of black hatch floor mats also to add to the interior.







I did at one point clean up some pretty awesome SSR mesh with all new stainless hardware new powder coating on the faces and fully polished (by me) barrels.




After it was completed I put the car on a load Dyno. I made 173hp on a mustang dyno. This was on pump gas with a tiny exhaust. In the near future I plan to have a better exhaust built,get tuned for E85 and add some more aggressive cams. I have ran down the drag strip quite a few times now. my best time is a 15.9 at 6000 feet above sea level.

As far as future plans i'am now gearing up for paint and body. I have collected an entire JDM front clip including the core support and also an optional rubber spoiler. Also an original ARC Icebox

Wow this is one hell of an update!  Glad you bought it back and love the direction you're heading in.  Are you keeping it blue?  Will you be running the SSR or keeping the ITR wheels?
