Welcome to the community! The CRX looks better already, and you sound like you've got some good plans for it. The EG looks great too.

Seems like most people remember the car from the previous owner, and I had never seen it before it was put up for sale :lol:

I'm probably going to post everything I do on the crx so be prepared for some ridiculous things :P

Did something small today:
Painted the faded trim with SEM, awesome stuff, looks just like the original.

Image
Image
Image
All the trim is going to be done.

And cleaned the engine bay a bit. Think I'm going to do a small tuck but not to much. I still like how it looks this way.
Image

Tomorrow the front bumper with the SEM, and make a bracket for the license plate, so when I attend a meeting (next year when it is finished) I can take it away easily.

Today I did the front bumper. Cleaned up the license plate holes and made a simple bracket for it.
(and bought a Supersprint exhaust mid section).

Tuesday I hope to receive the Supersprint and to fit it right away. (if they get here on time :P)
What is fitted now looks like sh*t. More welding then pipe :rolleyes1:

Thanks, not really, just an in between pic. I put some plastic piece behind the holes and glued it there. Then I used kit?? (english) to fill up the holes, and sprayed it with tyctyl because that has some structure in it, the molding is not completely flat/even so. Not something special really.

SEM trim black is paint :-)b

Hey thanks, yeah I would like to see that to but the crx is on 4x4 mode so I think it would look ridiculous :lol:

Today there was a little meeting in Belgium. There where some nice cars there (I think).

And I bought this thing there :D

This is what I got when I bought it. Nothing wrong with it really,
Image

Then my dad found something, had it in one of his previous honda's.

Not really listen to a cd, and if I do it are the 80's and 90's classics and as we (my dad :P) have enough cassettes this is perfect.

Nice! I have a stock deck too that i was thinking of switching out for a pioneer deck but i've since decided to keep it stock. I just bought a tape adapter so i can still listen to my ipod. Though my stock deck doesn't look as good as yours :D!

If you don't really care about music a stock one is just fine (I think). Just put 4 new speakers in and it sounds fine for me. And thanks, it looks even better in person.

Another something, OEM armrest. And I bought another one :oops:

Not the original fabric on the lid because that was ruined. Now alcantara on top.

Thanks,

Inside maybe, outside has a lot of room for improvement. But that's going to be something for next year.
It can only get better I guess,
