Galoot's 90si

Postby galoot » Tue Jun 26, 2012 10:23 pm

So this is my original Si from 1994. My first car back when I was a junior in high school. It's still 99% stock and in great shape for its age. Interior is all there. No rips, tears, stains to the seats, panels, carpet, etc.... Everything works, ac, sunroof, heater, clock etc... The only part showing its age was the body!

20 years of dents and dings. And your typical Honda trouble spots. I decided, what the hell, lets make her pretty again!

Image
not too bad right? still shiny. single stage respray from years back.

Image
little spot on the passenger side

Image
little hit and run action...til my neighbor fessed up!

Image
Rust gold mine here!

Image
hood and front bumper had a run in with a truck's receiver sticking out. damn home depot!



So now onto the restore
Image
first well

Image
second well

Image
second well

Image
drivers side

Image
ready for color

Image
ready for color

Image
ready for color

Image
finally...some color!

More to come in the future........

wow, since 1994
man thats awesome! :-)b

two questions:
1. how much did you pay for it?
2. what made you keep it after all these years?

p.s want to see it all put together after the paint.

1. $7000
2. not sure, i've owned 20+ cars since. I guess you always hold a soft spot for your first!

mileage stands at 148,xxx

problem is I have a new found passion for it and want some POWER now! I'm 10 years late on the swap kick

Thanks. I struggling with leaving it stock because its so original minus the skunk2 shocks and springs. I've being thinking of type r swap. But cant decide if i want to shell out the dough. I should just get a civic hks exhaust to get the smooth sound I remember from back in the day.

Car is back together and on the streets. I'll post up some pics later in the week. I need to find some new head and bumper lights. My pitted ones just aren't cutting it anymore!

Anyone have some in good shape or know of any aftermarket that are near oem standards?

Not perfect, but much better. Still in search for some nice ones!

Here are a few interior shots

Pretty clean overall. Not much wear and tear over the years. These are still some of my favorite seats after all this time. I have the original floormats with all lettering still attached, but don't want to wear them out so I just cut up some generic all weather ones.

Exterior pics to follow. Needs a quick wash and some sunshine.

Well the search for new oem bumper lights was a half success. Only the right one is still available. Go figure! But I was able to pick up a pair of oem headlights.

Went from this

To this!

SOOOOOOOO much better!!!!! Had to remove the bumper and switch the mounting brackets. Not too hard overall. I was just worried I'd damage my paint somehow. But I didn't. Thank goodness!
