I am enjoying myself out here for sure, only have a little less than a year left so I have to get all that I can out of it.

Luckily its only the windshield that really took any damage. Sucks but its my own fault for not checking over the car before ripping on it haha.
Thank you, I'm really enjoying the 13 now that I have a few parts on it.
shorty_boy wrote:^ i know right. I like the the s14s and the s15s minus the tail lights (but i do like those aftermarkets) but that 13 is looking mighty fine. I wish Bannister was coming to Whidbey so that i can ogle at his JDMness.

haha, thanks man, yeah the 15 tails are hideous as far as stock goes. I liked the red/clears and what I did with the cheesy Altezza looking ones with spraying them all red. One of my boys (Highwaystar Ollie) is out there as of two months ago. He has an ITR on CCW's and Advan RGII's for track duties.

Thank you, CRX Isn't done yet, still a good amount of work to put in on her. I love the Aero bumper on the S13, had to have that bumper and projectors. I'm wanting to swap back to the dual projectors again lol

Yes they are the Circuit Sports ones. I bought the non-LED D-max tails before I bought the LED ones and they are made by the same manufacture (sadly I paid about the same for the non-LED D-max as I did for LED CS). I also picked up another set of taillights that I'll share a little bit later, they as well have the same markings on them as the D-max and CS tails. Enjuku FTW!

Long overdue updates, I've been slacking terribly..
Well I have found a few parts for the CRX so not everything out here was for an S-chasss lol. If you follow me on instagram you may have seen the hood I picked up! I found a J's Racing carbon hood, it has seen better days and had terrible hood pins that were corroded on it. I drilled out the rivets that were holding the crappy pins in place and wet sanded the oxidation and hard water stains that were on it. Still nothing to where I want it to be, but its better looking than it was lol. I have a set of Aerocatch latches for the hood when I do get back. I also picked up a super clean OEM SiR hood just in case I don't like the J's and cant get my fiberglass OEM style hood fixed. I was also able to find another set of bumper lights, and a clean set of window switch bezels. My current ones in the car are a very light grey, these ones are the darker grey :-)b

Image

With the J's hood I decided I needed a couple more J's parts so I took a trip to Super Autobacs to pick up some J's accessories. Picked up the weighted shift knob, shift pattern sticker, gold badge and the waza stickers.

Image

And last I'll share the wheels I'm going to be rebuilding. VOLK GRC 16x8+38 and 16x7+35. They came off my Silvia when I first bought the car. Yes S13 Silvias are 4x114.3, these wheels are 4x100 :shock: The car had 15mm 4x114.3 to 4x100 adapter spacers and they were Honda thread studs so the lugs would fit. I thought of selling them and almost did, but decided these would look good on the car once rebuilt.

Image

And for those that care to hear about the Silvia...
Lots of new parts have been collected. Including a couple new sets of wheels. One of which I just had powdercoated, 17x10+20 and 17x9+18 Desmond Regamaster Promadas. New center caps and valve stems were bought for them as well. The others I'm in the process of rebuilding and will reveal when they are on the car. The old and tired CA18DET has decided it doesn't like oil, she leaks oil, smokes like a chief and is quite an embarrassment leaving smoke trails everywhere. Ive been chasing leaks and broken hoses since purchasing the car (it sat for 10 years before receiving my abuse) so I purchased another CA block and bought all new seals, gaskets, and hoses. Sadly once again my work schedule is too hectic to do the work myself, I had the motor shipped to a friends shop and last week dropped off the car to receive the new heart and a few more upgrades :biggrin:

My buddy Rich (Garagespec) just moved out there not too long ago, he has a R30 skyline, very 80's and very dope! Panda paint scheme with large overfenders and deeeeeeeep Watanabe R's. Man I would love to legally own a JZX100 Chaser, they are monsters! For now I'll stick with my '89 Silbeer :wink:
EF8Zackrj wrote:I love your rex, it is an inspiration to make a rex as well as yours

Thank you very much! She's still not done but I very much appreciate the words sir. I remember when I first purchased the car, the guys I looked up to and their cars were 408woody (Honda-Tech days) and his RHD converted dumped on its ass hatch. Rywire's CRX and ChaseBays's (EF8kid) CRX. The attention to detail and quality work put into the cars at that time were top notch and something I strive for.

Signal ducting

Postby BannisteR » Tue Jul 29, 2014 12:54 am

I don't have much for updates, I went home last week (California) and visited with family. I did bring a few things to the states but didn't do much with the CRX
really. I installed my TheRetrofitSource H4 HID kit in the EDM headlights and they worked wonderful once I figured out my missing and switched fuses in the fuse box. Turns out when you don't have fuses in certain slots, those items don't work. Also being in kanji I wasn't able to read exactly what the slots were for haha. So once I got all that taken care of, I had hi/low beams, running lights and turn signals. I bought a carbon vent a little while back, and its also pictured in the photo with the J's hood. I wanted to mount it where the drivers signal lens goes and luckily I had a spare one that was cracked so I could hack it up to make it fit.

Image
Image

Nothing too exciting, and it's not 100% yet, just cut and taped. Once I get back to the states I'll mount it up and epoxy them together. The bulb section has been lost with this in place so I'll probably cut and mount two 194 bulb slots on either side of the vent to make it still functional with lighting.

Man I am terrible with updates and replies. Been on deployment since June, a brief trip home in July, then back to join my ship. However in my downtime, I did find a set of OEM EF8 fenders so I can get rid of the Password fenders. Not much else to get for the CRX, just get back to the states and figure out the little bugs and get her ready to paint.

Thanks man! The lips and center hexes I'll re-polish, I haven't decided on what color to do the centers just yet.

I have a feeling I know what you are looking to do, as I was thinking the same.. J's style lol. Once I get back to the car I will be selling them though. I have no use for them with having OEMs

So I'm back in the states again, and VA for the next few years again. So hopefully I'll get the chance to get back to work on the CRX and get some new parts that I was able to pick up while in Japan :-)b The Silvia is on her way to the states (Super slow btw.) I took a few pics of her before I pulled all the parts off and at the shipping dock.

I will be running it, I have yet to complete my wiring and making a bezel for it. That's on the laundry list of projects for it when I get back to working on the CRX lol.

What a hectic past few months it has been, both cars are now under one roof and getting along just fine. I picked up a new vehicle for both daily and towing purposes, an 09 Toyota 4Runner. Made the trek from California to VA again with the CRX on a trailer. Made it in about 46 hours, stopping for a total of about 4 hours for naps and breaks. I've swapped over the fenders from the PW:JDM's to the OEM EF8 fenders. I test fitted the J's Racing carbon hood as well. The Silvia came in about three weeks ago, so I've been slowly putting parts back on her. First thing to do was to lower the car back down to an acceptable height and throw on a set of wheels. I'll have pics up this weekend, this thread is in much need of CRX pics and updates.

Thank you, and yes I am real stoked to be able to bring a few pieces of Japan back with me.
I wasn't able to track the car as they didn't tell me the ship or anything it was on but I was on the phone with the shipper the past three weeks before it arrived. It was literally 5 weeks after clearing customs in CA before it made its way to VA by truck. I swear they used the slowest transportation possible.

Back with a couple updates..
Started by pulling of the Password:JDM fenders to put the OEM EF8 fenders on. Just putting them on was a world of difference, the gaps were correct, the corners fit as they would, just all around a better fit, as would be expected with OEM parts..

Image

Next I attempted to install my new coilovers I picked up while in Japan as well. I say attempted because I'm in need of one key element... Tophats... My ground control extended top hats wont work with these, so I put an order in for some Tein pillow ball mounts. I'm also going to finally install these Hardrace upper control arms so I can have a little camber adjustment as well.

Image
Image

The J's Racing hood I picked up while out there, is now on the car, I'm going to need to drill and cut into it and I'm avoiding it like the plague. I'm not afraid of cutting into the hood, its cutting into the car lol.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Other than that I've been messing around with the Silvia, I lowered it back down to an acceptable height and put the BBS LM's back on the car. It as well is receiving some parts that I've had for a while that I never got around to putting on while in Japan. And there is more to come for both cars.

Did you hook up the ebrake cables for the Wilwood kit in the rear? I know they're slightly longer than stock so I'm curious on how you did it.
