Ok so here is an update. No pics yet bc I need to get the pics off my phone and onto my photo bucket account.

But I dragged the car out of the shop on jan.7th 2014 after it had been sitting in the corner of the shop basically untouched for the better part of 3yrs. Some minor work was always done, and some major but it was just picked at due to time constraints.

Since I dug it out and got moving on it here is the list of stuff accomplished:

-All the factory electronics have been reconnected and assembled; main relay, ignition switch, rad fan relay circuits.

-final bits for the turbo kit have been sourced and installed.

- all the factory lighting has be reconnected along with all the gawdy blue bulbs and clear lenses removed(installed by previous owner)

- da front brake kit including the DA knuckles with upper adjustable control arms have been installed and front end has been finalized

- the driveshaft tunnel is now completely welded up.

- the location of the exhaust and gas tank have been finalized and we are going to start cutting out the appropriate areas and start the fab work on that.

- I was able to locate the factory interior pieces so i can complete the inside of the car and keep it looking as stock as possible.

There is a lot to do still but it is getting completed.

Tomorrow I will be installing the gauges and getting the wiring for them completed and running a system check on the electronics to make sure everything is in order and there are no issues.

If all goes well I should have it running in a few weeks and I'd like to have it on the road before the end of feb. We'll see what happens.

Stay tooned.

Soooo, I've been lacking in pics updates and everything else related to this car/ thread.

BUT!

The work hasn't stopped. I took a small break to finish up some cars that needed my attention and I'm back on it.

Final location for the gas tank was decided and modifications to the floor pan have been made to accommodate the new tank. The fuel tank will essentially reside in the factory location however the mount points and the tank are all custom. With that said, the interior will remain looking oem. That is a big sticking point with me. I want to keep the interior looking as stock as possible. Don't ask me why, it's just a thing.

I'll try and pull pics from my phone this weekend and get them posted.

I'm also toying with the idea of putting a jdm front end on the car. We'll see if I go through with that one. Lol

It's nothing exciting from the exterior to be blown away by. Looks essentially like a stock crx. Lol

I'll try and have it on the the road for the spring meet. No promises though.

Not going to lie, I joined the forum for this thread lol. It's already educational to me as I have just started this journey as well. Using a 91 wagovan I picked up for $250. It ran but smoked like cheech, the d15 had a long life of 275k miles. Just rolled home a near mint 91 hatch for $400 including a complete y8.

After I strip the wagon and stuff it with some scrap metal I'll make most of those costs back by scrapping that shell and selling some of the usable parts I won't be needing.

I'm very interested in seeing your fuel cell setup and how your handle the rear end install. You doing custom tube or drilling the spot welds out of the old rear cross member and fabbing in the wagon parts? I'm thinking of notching mine out, lay some plate to cover every thing up, mount the rear end, then make a brace to strengthen the rear cross member back to oe or better.

Sorry in advance if I ask a metric shitton of questions

Got the interior back in it today. It still needs some trimming and cleaning up, but it's getting there.
