I just want to point out that we got 28 new members today (December 21st). I know a lot of you guys came over from another certain forum, but it's great to see the growth, hopefully you settle in here!

Now what I didn't see is 28 posts in The Lounge with pictures of CRXs and/or projects...

Mine's nothing to brag about. It's a full stock 87 Si (black). It's actually my wife's car that I'm trying to restore.

Thanks for the welcome.

What's wrong with 1st gens? Are they a POS? I can't find parts and when I look for them, people act like I'm a bastard child with a disease.

Sorry... I really am at square one with knowledge on these cars.

I like to see them, wasn't being negative...

RPR will have more info for you, but I'd like to have some gen1s around here, they are pretty, and I never know when I might stumble on one for a good deal.

I passed up on a good deal for a 86 FI CRX Si. Reason was, needed way to many parts to safety and make look good. It was gonna cost me 300$ for the car, and 1000$ in parts, plus it had 2 cracked plastic fenders and I just didn't even wanna bother sourcing those out.

First off, 1st gens are F*N SWEET.

F the haters

1g cr-x's are rare birds and its true parts are tough to come by but its well worth it imo.

Now on to the whoring... r.i.p. my old 86 Si :cry:

Thanks to bart for the mass migration of members from the crx/ef section on h-t. In a round-about way, you could say that knightsport is responsible for this sights recent growth :lol:

Honestly, I started the same way and I now feel very comfortable working on my CRX, and my other cars. Best advice is to get a good repair manual for a 90 CRX. The Honda mechanics repair manual is the best...maybe someone has a link to online version? It'll be the best investment you make. Also, searching on sites like these will yield tons of results that will help a lot. The more research and work you do on your car, the easier it'll be.

Hi:

I found you guys this afternoon and I'm glad to say I already know I've found a much better place. I've gotten help from h-t before and I'm grateful for it but I don't feel I want to deal with the disrespect and waste-of-time posts over there.

You asked for pictures. Rather than take up space here, I'll send you to cardomain.
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/670320

These pictures are a couple of years old already. I caved late last year and bought some 16x7 Konig Remembers with 205/45/16R Kumho ECSTAs.

I wanted wider rims and I ummed-and-arred a long time about 15" vs 16". My first prize would have been some OEM 89 (15") Teg mesh rims - I've been looking on e-Bay since the end of '04 for some but never found any. These Konigs are BBS knock-offs but they look pretty decent. The 4-wheel combo weighs a total of about 3 pounds more than the stock rims and tires. They also drive really well - I expected them to make the steering heavier but they're having the opposite effect. I'll post some pictures later.

I've only driven them about 5 miles - once the salt and grit hit the roads here in MN, the rex goes straight into the garage till the city or the first rain washes the streets.

I plan on lowering the car 1-1.5" during the winter - the Konig/Kumho combo is about 1/2" bigger diameter than stock - I wanted to fill the wheel-wells a bit over stock.

BTW, the article posted elsewhere on the wiring tuck was awesome - don't know if I have the courage to do it but I loved the result!

Anyway, I'm happy to be here! Thanks for having me[/img]
