I'm by no means an expert at doing this. One of the reasons I bought a CRX that needed work was to force myself to learn something new. So expect me to be posting a lot of questions regarding the repairs I'll be doing.
My plans with the car currently are just to get it running reliably and restore the appearance and functionality of the car to the best of my abilities.
