Well basically this car started as a $400 dollar daily driver that hust needed a clutch replacement. Got her goin again and was cool with it. Then a b16 swap got thrown in the bay because the single slammer blew up. Then the b16 took a dump and went poormans type r. Blah blah blah. Here are some pics of before.






The front end got messed up from previous owner. He was gonna trade it to some kid and for god knows what reason they took the front wheels off. Then they forgot to tighten the lug nuts. So when he left the front wheel came off. Idiot. So he lost interest in the build. So that brings us to now. I'll post some more pics soon. Here is a parts list.

1989 Honda civic dx-been converted to mpfi
2002 rsx-s swap
hasport efk1 mounts
jdm front end
jdm spoiler
jdm front and rear seats
new in the wrapper ef spoon front strut bar
lower benen tie bar
tien full coil over suspension

I've still got some things left to do. Actually lots left.

Would really love finish my wire tuck soon and hopefully brake line tuck. Got some parts being powder coated. I'll throw up some more pics here shortly
