Yea. I was determined to keep the AC even though the whole world told me I was crazy. (you know I think when I got it new the AC was like a 1200.00 option. It was about 500.00 on an american car at the time). The bracket is actually made by Hasport.

Remember were talking 22 yrs. ago. Long before digital camera's and computer files. I may have some old pics, but they would be on paper and hard to post.
I actually drove the car daily for the first few years that I had it. At that time there weren't really any performance parts available for it, or for any imports for that matter. Then I got a company vehicle and the CRX basically sat in my garage for quite a few years. During those years the import performance market took off. All of a sudden everything was available. So I figured it was time to do everything I always wanted to do to it and start driving it again.

Unfortunately can't find any old pics. If I knew I was going to keep it for over 20yrs. I probably would have taken a bunch a long time ago.
