    Hey guys,
    I'm about to have my 1990 CRX Si repainted and have some body work done after an accident (not my fault). Anyways i need to replace most of the trim and have it painted along with the rest of the body. I've been trying for over a week now to find trim.. ive yet to try Honda in fear of outrageous prices. I live in maryland if anyone in the area can ship me trim in really good condition or if you have a site i can go to or company i can call. All help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I've never had luck at a junkyard with CRX's or parts for one. But I suppose it would matter the area that you were in.

    Let us know if you find some place that does sell them. I need some for mine, too.

    So i just checked with Honda in my area and they estimated it around $900.00 to get the complete trim kit for both sides.. errr WOW. its about $420 to replace just the side i need so i may just have my bud shave the trim. what you guys think?
    Championship white CRX, with shaved trim...and my intercooler poking through the front bumper :)
    i think it could be sexy

    theres junkyards everywhere in maryland.

    well maybe not everywhere. if you are near Baltimore there are countless junkyards. When I lived around there could at least find at least one every weekend.

    thanks anyways for looking. but i think i decided on having my trim shaved off. its way to costly to replace it all to new.

    Update: my original price of 2700$ is now cut down to 2100$ woot. just thought id give you all a heads up.
