    I'm going to have to make a junkyard trip soon since this CRX (87 Si) is trying to get me killed and I'm curious what other cars (if any) I can pull a few parts from. I'd love some input that could really save me some time when making the trip. Thanks in advance!

    I'm looking to get the seat belt buckle. By the way it's mounted, I'm scared it might be the only car that has them that way. Both of mine (driver and passenger) have broken and the driver's side locked the belt and won't let go. I'm hoping the buckles are mounted the same way in the civics.

    The turn signal assembly won't work at all. I've taken that apart before and if you go low enough, you can just grab the turn signal side without needing to take the wiper side. (I'm guessing no other car had the rear wiper, so I'd like to keep that control) Should a blinker assembly from any of the civics that generation work?

    I believe that the seatbelts carry a lifetime warramty-speak with the service manager at your local Honda dealership.

    I believe you are correct about the combo switch. I have to use two hands to turn on my headlights otherwise the stalk will break off. I recently picked up one in good condition from a seller on another website.

    Grab the front calipers/rotors from a 1g teg.
    You could probably use the (female) seat belts too.
    Ecu from a 1g teg if yours is an SI and keep it 5spd/same animal. Actually the whole engine/trans and supporting bracketry/wiring/cooling from a 1g teg.
    Whole rear suspension/cables from a 1g teg swap the rear brakes at your leisure. Maybe a 40/40 2g teg prop valve.
    Look for headers..
    " " Performance mufflers
    " " larger rims with same bolt pattern/offset (4x100)
    " " early B series resister box injectors

    and of course, money/guns under the seats, in trunks

    Get the belts from the dealership. Even if you have to pay for them.. You don't want to cheap out on safety belts.
