the old motor is as of this morning, in a scrap yard. Made a listing on CL for anything people needed and got rid of the rest. I was kinda sad to see it go.

unless you wanted to rebuilt it, the block was no good. It started knocking due to a faulty oil pump.

Ahh that sucks, didn't even think to post it on here. I never had a problem with that motor, always started right up, never smoked (even with high mileage) or had smelly exhaust. It probably helps I changed the oil every 2500 miles though, that motor was clean.

I had pulled my wiper arms to paint them but then had to run to Ace to get different paint. My boy fell asleep on the way home and I took him inside to take a nap on the couch and ended up falling asleep myself. Guess I'll try and get that done today.

meanwhile, here's my copilot passed out on the way home:

April 4, 2013 - D16z6 P28 ECU Conversion
Fixed my ECU, converted it from auto to 5-speed manual
Image

April 6, 2013 - 50% off Junkyard Deals
Hit up the junkyard in Lancaster, CA @ Ecology to help a good friend of mine; Ely, get a rack and pinion assembly for his EF9 hatchback. Reason for this. Drinking and driving isn't worth it!
Also caught eye on a Civic Wagon (auto) if anyone cares to get parts
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Anyways, got that assembly for him and I went to snatch a few things to complete my build!
- Shift boot from '89 Civic Sedan LX
- Crossmember bolts
- Shifter lever assembly bolts
- VW Jetta front lip '94
Lip seems smaller than '95 and has minor crack at bottom right
Image
Image
Image
Image
- VW Jetta front lip '95
Lips seems slightly bigger than '94 and minor issue center not connecting flush anymore
Image
Image
Image
Image

So I cleaned + installed my crossmember.
Cleaned up that filthy shift boot.
Thoroughly cleaned VW lips for repair.

Then I [potty mouth] up my lower driver side plastic garnish molding piece. Lowering jack, sliding accident, onto jack stands. Must buy this now before painting my CRX Si.
Image
Image
Image

Aside from that, all I'm missing now due to loss is a bitch pin (spring pin 8x20) + the clip that slips over it on the shift linkage and a cotter pin (lower ball joint nut holder)... Stopping by my local Honda dealership for these soon

Both of those VW's are 95's, 10th vin digit is S for both of them. Usually cars here get marked as the new model year around October. My CRX is a 90, but was built in October 89.

Mmm... You could may be help me... Are these buckles ( or at least 1.... ) equiped with the seat belt warning system ??? ( wired seat belt buckle ). If yes, what's the part number of that buckle if you still have it from Honda???
( or sometimes, there's even a sticker with the part number on it on the buckle itself... )

Thanks,

Regis.

They also gave me a 27 point inspection, so I can worry about everything I need to replace. :lol:

Cleaned the engine bay thoroughly, it helps when the motor is out. 8) And installed my new(er) driver's side front fender. The old one had a really attractive dent right after the wheel but before the door, it looks soooo much better now.

haha well that's an obvious.

Car makers have been doing that for a long time now. Because of that it's always been an issue trying to find a legit early '69 or '70 Datsun 240z. So I definitely know about it..

I only stated year model with pictures and door jam sticker-vin info of both. So people know + see what model to get a VW front lip off of. People are blind and lost when hunting.

Confused though, as those two lips differ in size a tad bit. I'll be taking measurements to make sure about it

Remove the VAFC-II and relocated the oil pressure gauge to make room for a radio only to find out all the radio wiring was cut. Also replaced the weighted Skunk2 like shifter knob and reinstalled the OEM, much better!
