Nice! One of my old co-workers has a '96 hatch that he races. Stripped out, complete suspension overhaul, etc. Keep it clean! I love these older, race-spec builds that are simple and clean.

Love that feeling after an engine swap and you turn the key and get a perfect startup....

Great job...

You may have inspired me to do a little project CRX build. If you happen to come across one, and/ or a JDM B series DOHC VTEC Engine, lmk...

Also, if I could request a video of the car switching (VTEC)....

Hmotorsonline.com is prob the best place for engines. Or jdmohiodirect.com

Vtec will be fun!

Found out I can run vintage tags on my car if I register for an antique vehicle. Pretty cool!

Depends on the state. I know California does- and if I choose to run an actual antique tag, it'll be white with black writing, but I think that's boring.

Honestly I'm glad we have the smaller tags unlike the super wide EU tags. To each their own

I prefer the wider ones but not he super wide ones. To me though it is more the mix of colours and pictures and weird font....so distracting.

I have to replace my master cylinder, and I decided to redo the seals. Oh man this is not fun. I put the strut bar on and I'm waiting on the rest of my intake.

Also put my headliner in

I'd say I'm about 80% done. All I need done is interior and registration, and an alignment. But I got a lot done even though it doesn't feel like it.

When I had the glass Installed they didn't do it right so I couldn't close my doors, so they had to come re do that and I had somebody come weld up random holes in the interior so I could add sound deadening.


Found some brand new EK4 lights also.

Installed the 1" brake master cylinder and even my wife helped. Those tiny hands come in handy

Great progress. Tire and wheels are factory size? What is the plan for the rear bumper/fascia?

the wheels are one inch bigger than factory, but with a smaller profile tire so the rotating diameter is the same as factory.

I have the rear bumper and lip but it needs to be re fitted because it doesn't fit correctly

Got pics of my lip that I ordered in April.

Installed the half size radiator to make room for air conditioning in the summer.
