Paused for funds.. :(

By Screech

Filed under: 1986 Honda Civic (On hold, planning)

I spent the last of my spare cash get some parts that I can't afford to install. Selling the Accord for the money though.

What did I get that I can't install myself you ask. The last Civic Si roof from Honda (the whole roof from the windshield to the hatch), a perfect windshield (and all install related parts for this) and a new set of shocks/struts with rear springs (TEINs).

Not sure how long she'll be off the road, but I've dropped the registration to save some money since I have no idea when. I miss driving her, but driving her looking like crap was not doing her any good either. This time body work will be complete, no keys (thanks to JDM gas door and Integra rear door handles) and most important to me, no more leaks!!

I been slowly stripping the car down for body and paint. Got the engine, tranny out and such. While the tranny is out I'm going to swap that LS 5th gear set into it to drop my engine rpm at 60mph from about 3400 to about 2800 while in 5th.

our not seen the last of this car, I will never give up finishing it, I just want it to actually be done this time, not a 1 year road test of the swap.
