Sorry, no ED9 updates. Think it will stay inside this year. Don't have the space at the moment to get it inside and don't want to leave it outside, although it is just for a couple of months.

Been busy on the 1G. Collection parts and trying to get all the rust out.

Got my valve cover back. This guy has been doing work like this for a few years now. The top part of the intake was done as well.
Waiting on a new decal for it.

Image

Image

Score, both sides brand new now.

Image

Image

thats not all though. Bought these as well.

Image

Best for last, was looking forward to these, don't see many of these around.

Last weekend a picked up some other parts. Front bumper support and brackets and some gaskets I couldn't get from the dealer, also NOS. Free 1987 calendar as well

Image

These also came in. Refurbished OEM CRX wheels.

Image

Image

Image


Image

Also bought this from a dealer in Germany. Mine looked to be welded due to rust, and as I want to lower the CRX I don't want it to tear apart later on
Image

Received a Genuine Mugen emblem.

Didn't buy that for fun though.

Delivery from Japan

Image

Emblem in it's spot where it should be

Image

Bought a genuine mugen wing. Looks rough, but thats just paint. The foam wing itself is in good condition considering it's age.

Did some more work today. Slow progress, but all the metal work is just taking a lot of time, first time doing this and don't want to just weld some metal back in.

Started with the easy stuff :P, new front bumper support fitted tot the bumper. Now it hangs straight right away when I hang it on
Image

That also meant I could weld this bracket back on in the right place.
Image

Then I fixed this part. Bought a bead roller so now it's a bit easier to make some of this stuff.

Image

Image

Also decided to cut out the complete sill. Not much was left of it as it turned out. Looked good from the outside.

Image

Image

OEM piece for reference
Image

Used the bead roller to create this more of a OEM look
Image

Noticed a hole and that the lower part was already rusted. So cut it out
Image

Used the "old" piece from the quarter panel.
Image

This pretty much took me the whole day. Did some small things but not worth mentioning. Next up is drilling holes in the quarter panel and weld that in place. And fix the floor panel

I bought this bead roller, but it only had some standard rolls for it of course.

Image

My dad made me these. Exact measurements from the OEM floor panel

Image

So after some messing around I got this, kinda looks like it so thats a start.
Image

And then today I made it a bit better looking and fitting. Also got that front piece done back into the wheel arch. Just a matter of welding it all back in now. But at least work is getting done.
Image<br /><br />

Almost done, just a piece to be made on the inside of the sill to cover up the jack point. Removed the sound deadening stuff as well and cleaned it up a bit.

Some small updates. First of all I bought some new wheels :P. Weather is getting better so want to work outside.

Image

Image


Started removing the rear subframe. as I have a new one for it as you might have seen.
Had been welded and came across this so couldn't let it go by.

Image

Adjustable panhard bar came in.

Image

The fixed piece on the subframe.
Image

Image

Image

Seatbelt was held in place by the carpet :P.

Image

Image

Image

And removing more and more rust.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Hoping to speed things up on this side. Knowing what to do and how to remove it since I did the other side should help.

I hope so as well. If it gets anywhere near the ED I'll be happy. Once the rust is removed it's of to the paint shop right away.

Thanks Alex, yes love those, happy to have to have found a clean set.

I know, I actually drove the car a few weeks without knowing this. It didn't feel like it was loose at all. And thanks :D

Yes lot's of rust on this one. But I was looking for a serious project to do (found one :lol: ). It's a learning process, never done work like this all by myself. Never welded or done sheetmetal work.

She's back, not sure how long it has been, close to a year. Just going to change the fluids and drive her a bit, and back inside she goes I hope.

Image

Image

Also got some more done on the 1G. Just this weekend I painted the engine bay.
Love that metallic in the paint. Can't wait to see the whole car in this color.

Image

Image

Also went to the UK again for a meet by 6TWO1. Great fun, love those trips with my friends.

Incredible as always.

Nice SRT10 Ram too. It's crazy how much bigger that thing is than the CRX.

Damn man I was supposed to come to the IMPACT meet by 6two1, couldn't get the car out of my garage as the driveway was being worked on. I want to get to the EF meet one of these days.

Keep up the good work.

Been cleaning up the engine bay. Reinstalled that oem snorkel/tube thing for the air intake. Painted the heat shield satin black and just cleaned up the rest. Need to do the firewall and underside of the hood.
