    hopefully this flip turns out better than the gsr civic i had last. I got this crx from a friend who bought it at action.He mostly needed the interior but he was mistaken andit was all crappy.

    $600 bucks total is what i got in it. The motor runs strong as smooth as hell. fired on the first try and even drove like a dream.


    its got Tokico Blue chocks and springs. They look new because it still had warning sticker cmpletely clean and not a scratch on it.

    the brakes were upgrade all to integra disks in the back and bigger pads in the front.

    if all goes well i'll make a $1000 profit. from the swap. I'm gonna give thr suspension to a friend in need. He owns a stereo shop so i'm gonna see if he can hook me up with a nice flip out cd/dvd player;) The motor i hope to get $1500 for the entire swap. transmission,axles,pr3 ecu and anything else thay might want like the harness,mounts,fans etc.

    once i make some money from that i'll head back and get a complete GSR swap from him and try to sell that too. Engine still in the gsr integra car unmolested:) Gotta do what you can to make some extra cash.saving up for my car. LMK what you guys think

    Just wondering; couldn't you use a Civic climate control? I have a CRX dash in my car and the Civic one fits fine in there.

    yeah i haven't really looked into it much; i'm just starting to notice that my climate dial doesn't seem to be really turning anything in the back - kinda feels loose. hehe.

    anyway - the guy i bought this rex from put some lame carbon fiber looking decal over the front so i have just assumed mine's cracked and waiting to die. would be good to have another around. thanks for the tip on checking into other models'.

    climaye controls are hard to come by. i dont have one on this rex.What are the sashes?

    yeah i'll sell the exhaust but man its gonna suck shipping a 1 piece long ass exhaust. Its got to be worth it. i'll say 60 bucks +shipping.

    the vertical plastic trim on the opening end of the doors which visually separates the front and back windows. three tabs under there, if they break duing removal, the part is junk. takes finesse :)

    the sashes look to be in good shape in your pics.

    if you get them off with all three tabs on each intact, that's a completely awesome deal.

    :wub: :worthy: :nod:

    sold! (if you get 'em off with the tabs intact) ;)
