    Play by play on the mirrors

    7/8 hole saw was used for the big hole

    The spring on the mirror can’t go all the way down unless you cut through here

    Pretty cool having a brother who works at a body shop

    And there you have it. Unfortunately I installed the mirrors to close to the hood side of the fender. Don’t go by my holes. Fortunately it didnt effect drivebility so I left them how they were. Overall they look really cool and you can actually see more of the road.

    Next step is lowering the suspension. Getting my springs, shocks, and an adjustable panhard bar next week. Hopefully that’s all i’ll need.

    Wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but loved the result as well.

    Got the wagon virus again after stumbling upon this old thing...

    Scored a JDM DOHC ZC. Supposedly comes with basically double the power than the D15A2. That means I can leave the engine stock and still have some fun. It’s no K-Series but it’s the best option to keep my RT4WD and not spend a fortune. If anyone has done this swap any information would be useful. Also the wagon sits a little bit closer to the ground.

    Currently has KYB Civic Struts on all four. Had to cut off the the brake bracket because it was getting in the way. The rear springs are from the well known BG springs lol. Finally, had to buy an adjustable panhard bar from Cheddas Auto so my tires don’t get worn out unevenly. The fronts sits around 4 and the rear at 3 skinny fingers. Still have to buy torsion bars and re-index them so hopefully both sides will be level then. Finally, bought another wagon to be my daily while the other one is under the knife. Was going to use it for parts but on the drive home i started to have second thoughts. It’s a 1986 4WD. Has more than 300,000 miles on it but the body is pretty straight. Wish the other one had a button.

  • Nice! I second your thoughts on keeping the 86! I do not think there are many left in that good if shape.
