    Get the axles from a pre 93 Integra if you have the halfshaft from the motor, or if you don't have the halfshaft, you can get the axle halfshafts from a 94+ Integra.

    As for teh radiator, I'd replace that one, but an aftermarket one isn't nescessary, just find a DelSol (possibly called a CRX where you're at) with a DOHC, or an Integra, and make a couple brackets to hold it in.

    Even with A/C you will have plenty of room. I have a B series and A/C the compressor isn't there, but the fan and condensor are where the Integra radiator would be.

    Not if you want to keep teh condensor, you should go with a DelSol vtec one, or a Fluidyne/Koyo style one like the one pictured.
