    Some of you asked, some of you didn't. Here's our rust bucket stripped.

    So much work to be done, I'm trying not to get discouraged. We got somewhat lucky in that the rust is only on the rear half of the car rather than the whole car. Soon the quarter repair panels will come and will be welded on. I can't wait! Hopefully today we can take the engine out. Progress though. It won't be ready by Sept, so we might have to attend the Babler meet without him.

    The front:

    Passenger side rust panel:

    The d15b6, extra wires are the front light harnesses pulled through:

    Spare tire well:

    The rear:

    Hatch struts are good:

    Gotta have a pile of removed parts:

    The lame APC seat and more rust, at least the interior is intact, just dirty:

    The primer was just to get rid of bare metal until I get back today and do some more. The car sat in a field for about 2 1/2 years prior to the purchase.

    haha my friend's dad told us to just make it a ratrod, cut the rust, prime it, do the engine and call it a day. i want to at least make it look good, the rust isn't that bad, just need the rear quarter repair panels to get here and that's what's up. i'm takin my butt up tomorrow to evac the rest of the interior and probably the gas tank.

    thanks for the comments, hehe. :)

    I think it depends on what it looks like, because I wouldn't really call the crx in the picture rice. I've got 17's on my hatch and it's not rice

    I didn't think that they look rice. and does anyone know what kind of rims these are? I bought them from a tag sale and have no clue.

    Oh don't mind the stickers I bought the car like that. I'm taking them off this weekend

    17s on EFs or any Civics/Tegs make them look like a Hot Wheels car. 15s or smaller. :D

    You can't declare your own car "not rice". That's not how it works.
