    If I can use my buddies flat bed to haul off the acura tomorrow, I might just push the honda in and start on it. Providing I can even get it loaded by myself lol

    I loaded a 3rd gen Integra (1996) with no motor onto and off of a trailer by myself a few weeks ago. 1st gen should be even lighter. Just have some common sense and you should be fine.

    I actually went with the suggestion TurboMirage gave me. Left the rear tires on, hoisted the front end with the cherry picker and used ratchet straps as a winch and pulled it right up the ramps onto the trailer. Took all of 30 mins and I was off to the scrap yard.
    Now just gotta clean up the shop floor.
    Gunna do a brake job on my f250 when the pads get here then get the civic in and start shoehorning the motor in!
    Im pumped and cant wait to get this thing going.
