So after month's of indecision, I finally came across a car to replace my venerable blown eg catch. After driving everything from Miata's, to e36 M3's, to c5 vettes, I settled on a 12 year old civic with no powersteering or a/c. Why would I do this with all these fantastic cars at my fingertips? Well for one, I am already "tooled up" to work on Hondas. I have all the tools, and the know-how. Hell I work for the company, and can get oem parts on the cheap. This lets me have fun working on a car while allowing me to save up for a house down the road. So to get started. I picked up this rust free 97' ek hatch from a guy that assemble's CRV's for a living at one of the local plants. It came equipped with a jdm ITR swap from hmotors. I was hoping that someone who assembles cars for a living would know how to assemble a simple civic hatchback. I was wrong.
