I don’t necessarily think it should be closed at this time. His build can live on as is his memory. I don’t know how I would do it, but I would like to acquire his car and keep it from getting in the wrong hands. Unless of course, one of his nephews would take ownership.

I was kinda thinking the same thing, but I'm sure there are people in front of me who would be much more deserving of it.

An old CRX buddy from back in the day helped me out. His wife was on her way to GA with some family to pick up a car. She also has a CRX, and she offered to pick it up in NJ and bring it to NC. I met her about an hour from my house last night and drove it back.

It will need some buttoning up for sure. It sputters at times and the idle is very wonky. I'll have my work cut out for me shortly.

So, I'm trying my best to keep what he would have done, as well as fix issues with the car. Now, reviewing his posts throughout the years, he admitted some items he left on as a momento of his ricerness.

So this past week, I removed the wiring and gauges. I don't like wiring when I don't know what was done. So the entire stereo / amp / Valentine 1 and power door locks with alarm were removed. I installed an aftermarket ignition switch harness to start from fresh.

The car really needs to be cleaned. Today, I used two clay bars to get it semi decent. However, the front bumper really needs to be redone, as does lining up a bunch of panels, fix the sunroof, and leaks. I removed the red door stickers as I'm going to prep it to get the Midori Green (or at least close to it) wrap that he wanted, which I would think would be decent. However, I think I would change the Volks out for the white RNRs.

The car has an idle problem, sputters, and is running pretty rich. I'm trying to get the idle under control so I can take it to a tuner. I changed the spark plug wires, plugs, cleaned the IACV, and deleted the EVAP canister, purge valve and changed the vacuum lines. Still having idle issues. I plan on swapping the exhaust to something more tame like an HKS.

this was the last piece of the AC in the car, so removed it and am currently waiting for the AC delete duct to come in. Should be here Saturday.

Image

Installed the firewall plug that is still available from Honda for like $5.

Image

Removed the exhaust cam sensor since it's OBD1 and not needed. Also changed the valve cover gasket and spark plug grommets. The head looked brand new which was nice.

Image

However, the car is running stupid rich, and I don't know where to start. Maybe the o2 sensor isn't the correct one for the car? It looks different than other obd1 o2 honda sensors.

Image
Image
Image

I did go to Cars and Coffee this past weekend as well. :)
Image

Looking at doing RDX injectors, and trying to figure out how to go about installing them into the obd0 harness that uses an obd1 ecu and jumper harness. Any help on that one? I would like to get this car tuned to see if that helps with idle and running rich.

I'm trying heh. I want to get this ready to hopefully go to Niagara next year. There's so much I want / need to do.

I think I'll be removing the engine, cleaning and POR15'ing the engine bay. I started to take out the cooling system as I have purchased a Skunk2 half rad, but I guess I have to figure out the hose situation as the stock hoses are 1 1/8 vs Skunk2 outlets being 1 1/4.

I'll be doing the wiring tuck and have ordered wiring, wire sheaths, etc.

I want to do new fenders, bumper, EDM 16v headlights, corner lights, and tail lights.

It needs a new engine harness, and I have purchased parts to install RDX injectors.

I need to fix the sunroof situation. I would love to do a sunroof delete and put on a DX roof. But, I think that might be pushing it. But, the sunroof panel is junk, and something is broken with it.

It will need new carpet, and interior pieces. I may remove the roll bar.

I have an HKS exhaust on order. I plan on getting the Innovative traction bar, and want to do the Rywire engine tucked budget harness. I'm also going to be relocating the battery back to the trunk, and finishing the stereo as I added new Alpine 2-ways to the front, and one Rockford woofer in the rear (didn't realize it wasn't a pair).

Image

Image

I can't figure out where these hoses go:

Image

I would like a new one of these that isn't rusty and gross.

Also anyone have a hookup on the radiator support bar? It's missing the vertical bar, and it's actually cracking.

How's she is sitting now. Took out the cooling system, dash, engine harness, routed the driver's side bay harness out the door now. I need the cluster / radio harness and center dash metal bracket if anyone has them for sale.

Need this bracket since it was cut prior to my ownership

Also need this harness (32117-SH2-A12)

What are people using to fix / replace the foam that goes around the heater duct openings?
