It's been a log time!! As luck had it, there was huge flooding last year in all Southern area's within a couple hours of where I live, including the body shop I let my crx to be painted last year. Good thing it was stripped when dropped off. Anyway, with it being closed half the summer, then winter is ice cold here, spring like weather now has a scope to take my car out of their own storage very soon and finish the car off....hopefully no more delays this year!

I am contemplating yet another set of wheels left over from an EM1 project, that are extra, but not sure if they will even fit, but i'll give them a try and see how it is

I also picked up a new coil over setup over the winter, I hope it was a wise choice. Came off a very low km EF from Japan, and I will only be running a 1 1/2" drop

sorry for bringing up old news, but just to clarify that switch in the exclusive crx has the original POWER FOLDING mirror switch. While the switch you guys are referring to, from the legend, is a Heated mirror switch. notice how one switch has heat wave icon and the other a curved arrow icon.

I had the rear 1/4's repaired 19 years ago. They had a couple small bubbles starting, so i had the metal cut out and replaced with more real metal then lined with a special wax behind. The car has not seen winter since. Above is a picture of the car sanded down showing the previous repair before primer.

Not sure, they are sitting in my storage unit, but i'll pull them out soon enough, as the car should be done at the bodyshop here any day.

Are they marked?? My car won't be lowered too much, i want about a 2 finger gap between the fenders
