first off i havnt posted up in a while....i had a 95 coupe and swapped a type-s into it then got into some troble with the las so i sold the shell and bought a 93 hatch

got the hatch about 10 days ago pulled the motor right when i got home....started stripping the engine bay of eveything i didnt need or want....(wire tuck, welded all useless bolt holes closed and bondoed everything smooth) stripped the entire frontend to get ready for paint.....ive taking a good amount of pics.....will have updates and more pics as stuff gets done....

i only spray painted the primmer just to seel the metal cause it was getting surface rust....as of right now i have a couple more spots that need to be sanded.....hopfully i can paint it soon its been raining a lot so i cant get around to painting it so ive bee slacking...

on with the pics.....

Crossmember after pressure washing just have to sand and paint



dirty mounts = this


Clean shinny mounts = this
