Default First Gen civic k swap!

I wanted to start my build thread for my new project so here I go. The car is a 79 1200 civic with only 70k miles. I am using the motor (k20) out of my race car for this build. I have two weeks to strip it down and get it to the chassis shop. We will have it at the chassis shop for 4-6 weeks but I have things to work on the keep the thread going during that time.Here are some pics and I will update as I go.Thanks for looking.

lucky lucky me found this car with the 2nd owner,he got it from a estate sale from the 1st owner in 2007.After 6-8 months of title work the guy was using it for a DD. The car does not have A/c so the guy wanted to fix up his 90's saturn because he had to have A/C. Someone told the guy he could get $2,500 for the car so thats what he did

Damn friend of mine has a car like this at the shop.the car is light ass hell. 4 skinny guys lifted the car off the ground with the motor in the car. i love the fact that even though it is so old, the doors close like it was off the showroom. really great craftmanship back then. unlike the cars nowadays, the doors sag so easily. can't wait to see this old school car get some new school tricks.

We got a little done today , the rest of the front end off and the gas tank out. The inside is comming along seats are out and should have the dash out soon. Found some $ from 78 under the carpet ,everything helps.As soon as I know what fuel pump I am going to use I will start on the gas tank.

where's the blue antique tag.
From the outside it looks like a full auto restoration. there are eg's and ek's not even that clean.
Whats up with the brake booster on the right hand side of the car with the steering column on the left? Is it a crosbar under the dash like what old accords did because of space limitations in the engine bay?
anyways best of luck
