    for the past 6 months while i have been at school, living on a poor college kids budget i have been restoring a 89 CRX HF that i got in NJ back in december for $600. it had 113k on it with NO interrior at all no dash roof liner or nething... i metal worked everything on this up to 1/8th of an inch of straightness... meaning there is no puddy on the car thicker than 1/8th of an inch. ...heres the pics of the stages it went though...
    how it looked when i got it

    totaled the crx when i went under a 4x4 but had about $20 in the bank account at the time.. had no choice but to fix it.... had to press out the A piller new front end, straighten front frame (was pushed the the right 7mm not much at all really)

    a long while later of alot of metal working it was time for primer...

    Nice. I got the same thing; white '89 hf. Rust sucks. It's in primer now ready for paint. Thanks for the inspiration.
