its different, and the sedan front end allows more airflow than the coupe, and a bit more space for a FMIC.

the mirage is getting a 4g63t. im picking one up ......................... wednesday.
 
Step 3. Wetsand everything from the firewall back with 600 grit. Remove annoying as fuck glue stripes.

It would have came out good if
1. I didn't run out of paint (I manage a paint store, I did it by rattle can)
2. I gave a shit
3. I actually went bought paint to finish it.
4. I actually finished it.

RIP CRX, I actaully want another one.
 
don't look now, but someone's run off with your glovebox !


I also don't know what you're talking about with the coupe front end. Show me some pics.

Can we....

Cut out our back window frame, weld it to the trunk lid, put hinges on the roof and make it a hatchback ?

I mean shit, you're re engineering it anyway.
