So despite my 1996 Accord getting 30-33mpg, I was wanting a little bit more mileage per dollar. I started looking for a super high mileage vechicle. After looking at 1.0L metros for a while, learned of the CRX HF, and bought this little gem two weeks ago. I was away from home at school, so work on it didn't start until last week saturday (June 21st). I've dubbed this project car Ol' Blue, since the car rolled off of the assebly line as a blue on blue car. (I thought about FrankenX, but that name sounds like it should be reserved for something that has a little bit more than 72hp stock). I bought the car for $850 from some guy in a trailer located in Athens, OH. The car had one bearing that was completly shot, another that needed replacing, and the passenger tire was pushed back about 1" in the wheel well. Also there was no radio and the interior was about 75%, and what was left had been painted with spray paint. I drove the car 5+ hours to school in Flint, MI, listening to nothing but the wheel grind the whole way, and trailered it home from there to Hamilton, MI. When I got home, I looked up a friend that I knew had wrecked his Si into a guard rail. I went to his place, offered him $200 as it sits, and took it back home. It turned out to be an amazing deal for me, since the car had new carpet, full S.S. exhaust, header, intake, underdrive pulley, strut brace, and AEM cam gear. Not to mention I could get $150+ for the shell in steel alone. Work that I plan to do to the HF this week Work that I plan to do to the HF this week: -Install all the black interior that I have. Paint the few pieces that I'm missing as a temporary fix until I can find the rest -Install intake and exhaust from Si and other performance parts -Replace HF hubs with bad bearings with the ones from the Si -Swap in Si brakes and suspension -Install radio, sub, and find speakers for the HF -Fix the front wheel, so that it is centered in the wheel well (Possible bent frame?) Here's the pics This is the CRX HF as it looked when I picked it up Note that the tire is pushed back about 1" in the wheel well Here's The work that I've done from Saturday to Tuesday Some part storage More Part Storage This should be the last of the parts Old blue parts, and weapon of choice - 25 Gallon Shop-Vac Here's the door after I painted the jams from blue to black. I'm not sure if I'm going to like this paint, it seems really light duty and might wear off fast. This is what happens when a CRX meets a gaurdrail at 70 mph. (Driver was NOT wearing seatbelt and still walked away from the accident) Here's what's left of the inside of the HF. Time to start puting stuff back in... Umm... someone knows how this all goes back... right?? Here's what I did to the car yesterday Getting ready to paint drivers door jams Fitting in the black Si interior Unfortunatly Si doors won't fit on this without some Sawzall work. I couldn't call this a true swap unless I ran into some wiring issues along the way. Hopefully I can swap over the Si fuse box and take car of the issue. Well, that's all I have for now. I going back out to start again. I'll keep updating as I go.
