    So much Awesome in here! Great collection of OEM Parts sir! Those mats FTW... Keep at it.

    Thanks sir! I have a few other things coming as well, safe to say I am done placing these large orders; one of which is a crucial part that I was skeptical that I would ever find new... Well a few things actually :P Soon I will start saving some cheddar for fresh paint and a motor; after I get the wagon running of course.

    Dissecting my power folding mirrors, having some issues with the drivers side mirror folding. The motor is fine but it needs a little nudge to fold in and out. I inspected all of the gears and couldn't find the culprit, I ended up giving up for the time being.

    Chrome ring finally installed on my window cranks, still need to find two for the rear windows.

    Thanks dude! I can't wait till I am able to install everything.
  • Not much has changed lately on the sedan, although I have been working on a few little projects here and there.. And of course buying random parts impulsively. Here are a few recent pictures.

    Cut some holes and made some grommets for my fog lights on the OEM front bumper I picked up a few months back. Also started sanding down the spare front and rear bumpers.

    Also started cleaning up two sets of wheels:
    1985-1987 SI wheels, I have a full set that I got for a steal but one of the wheels was sand blasted so the finish will not be the same as the other three. Shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement though.

    I picked these 14" CF-48's with aero covers for a great deal from Japan, over all the wheels are in fair shape. Only two small spots that need some metal and two tiny bends. Nothing that can't be repaired.

    First round of polishing

    Some spots have deeper scratches around the lip than others, I'm worried that sanding some of these spots will ruin the finish.

    Picked these headlight covers up as well, the only information I know about them is they came from Australia.. I have seen a few sets of hatchback and crx headlight covers but this is the only sedan set I have come across.

    Also finally acquired a hood bra bag and instructions for my full nose mask, now I have the complete set!

    Hopefully after the holidays I will find a cheap daily to start tearing into this thing, so ready for it!

    I love all the parts your collecting! I guess them aero covers for the cf-48's are hard to come by? I rarely see them on them on the wheels.

    Those mugen rims!

    LOVE them.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, the aero covers are very hard to find and are often more expensive than the wheels. I was lucky enough to get them from a Japan auction for a great price. On the hunt for a DD at the moment, hopefully that means the body work will begin on the sedan!

    what did you use for the foglight surround? the rubber black tubing stuff??? is that the OEM surround that comes with the fog lights?
  • PM'd ya Bill.
  • Almost been two months since my last update.. :shock:


    Progress has been slow, the motor for my wagon is slowly starting to get re-assembled. I just started school at my local community college this week for auto body, should be a great learning experience. But working a full time job and going to school is going to be hectic; long story short the sedan is not going to see much progress for the next few months. Although towards the end of the semester I will be able to bring it in to work on at our body shop. Hopefully the wagon will be up and running by the time the weather starts to get warmer! Here are a few pictures to give you guys an idea of where she sits now.

    And my new daily, 2015 6MT EX Fit! Got a few accessories for it, no other plans for it besides some spacers and some lowering springs. So far it has been a great car!
