i like the build and the wagon.....
but please do me a fovor and get rid of that harness bar behind your seats. in a accident without a roll cage they can be dangerous. people died because of those bars.
i do like safety and cars that look good. the bar looks good but its unsafe.

Do you daily drive this thing being that low?
It’s been a while... a long while but I’m finally back at it. After 7yrs I’m finally continuing my build. Unfortunately my build was stopped back in 2014 and has been sitting collecting dust and being eaten from the inside-out by rodents. Starting back where I left off, i bought a motor and some wheels right before the build stopped...
B16a1 from a CRX SiR
Wheels are 3 piece Nitro performance, size 15x9 front, 15x11 rear I have to check the back spacing again to tell you how much the offset is but I think I got them in 3”. I’ll post the backspacing on my next post (left my measuring tape at my job)
All this time and I still don’t know much about doing a swap and even though I would love to learn, I don’t have the space to do it or know anyone that would lend me a parking space. So I took it to a shop that was recommended by Vraceworks, I felt confident they would do a great job since one of the 2 brothers that own vraceworks used them to build his CRX (you might’ve seen it in pictures).
The day it left to get the swap done, the front driver side tire had no air and on top of that the car is already super low so it had to get dragged out of the parking space by the tow truck(literally cried the whole time) and dragged up onto the bed. I wish I could’ve took my lip off but I couldn’t even stick my hand under the car. Just another thing to add to the list of to do’s after I get it back.
The mechanic took 2 weeks to do the swap, he would’ve done it in 1 but the parts took a week so there was no getting around that. I still haven’t seen my car in person yet but he sent me this to brighten my day
i love the features the admin added to upload pictures but I’m not sure how to upload vids unless we have to post them on YouTube and then just add the link.
im planning on going to see the wagon on Saturday so I’ll be sure to document everything that the mechanic did.
after I get the wagon I still won’t drive it until I change the brakes and make sure it’s completely safe to drive, but I’m pretty sure the brakes aren’t the only thing I’ll have to change. So here’s my next couple of things ima do before I really start adding some 1 off pieces i plan to make: 1. Completely change the brakes (rotors, calipers, brake line, pads) 2. New coilovers 3. Change all the bushings (im gonna get the complete bushing kit) 4. Add a muffler since it currently has a straight pipe (don’t want anymore tickets).
well that’s it for the update I hope you guys are as excited as I am because I have even bigger plans than before...
