Took him out for a night drive while shopping. He is running well but I fear the clutch is growing weak. The last thing I want to do is replace the clutch (time or $$$) on the D16 but we shall see. Timing is everything and funds are headed in other directions currently.

i read through your whole build thread and loved the attention to detail and all the stuff you covered, and how clean it was after you were done with everything!, these are the types of build posts i like, and always inspire me to want to do more to my crx, things you did, which i never think of doing, such as detailing the suspension and wheel well areas, (except i did spray a few layers of undercoating/sound dampen stuff in my wheel wells and under car, i have replaced most of my suspension parts like control arms, balljoints, rear trailing arm bushings, etc..., and put new steering rack not too too long ago, but my kyb gr-2 shocks and H&R soft sport springs (only .75" drop), are old now cause i installed them in 2003, and would be way better if i got new shocks/springs, but this time i just want oem springs with oem ride height, cause i rather have that type of clearance, plus more comfort, but i have liked the kyb shocks and would get those again.

i also prefers the dual-tip, horizontal mounted muffler type of oem look on the crx, and have always got ones like that, or got them pieced together so they had it like that,

i also did that A/C climate control faceplate fix, and removed the whole unit and everything and epoxied the faceplate to the front of it, but first epoxied the cracked section of the unit, but could'nt believe later on the faceplate started peeling away from the climate control unit, after i put it all back, so now its halfway coming off of it, at an angle, so that sucks, but instead of removing it and all that crap, i think i'm just going to drill a small black screw in the left and right side so it is screwed against it good, and be done with it.

anyways, look forward to any updates to your crx, to see how it progresses..... :D

Thank you for the kind words. I can only hope to have inspired others through my build as others have inspired me to work on my build. There are not many left and most are beaten up badly. The wife dislikes driving him around town as we always stop and answer questions about him. But I like it. I like to see the interest he generates in others.

My big overhaul actually started out quite small. But it was a good refresher for me on working with him. As you start digging to replace something, there are all these good parts along the way that could be replaced. So you “might as well while you are in there…” Aside from the motor (248k) and fuel pump, it is like driving a CRX with 16k miles on the odometer. Very cool experience indeed.
