So Netherland24(Chris), DJman37(Doug) and Myself found a CRX for free...yes free ;) It needs a rebuilt carb and some body work. Clean title might I add...its in our hands. Perfect interior for an '85 rex :)

I'll be posting pics as we tear down and build back up. Exterior and interior. Hopefully it will be ready for finals this year. Enjoy the pics...

The car...

Front...Rad support is inside the car. Dont have the front valance or anything else for front. Junkyard here we come.

Not only does the exaust add DeeeBeeez, but it makes it go fast too...well, if it would start. Again, needs a carb rebuild.

Interior...
http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/7207/dscf003021fw.jpg

more interior...you can see the front fender, rear spoiler, rad support, and a few other things we took off so it wouldnt litter up the highway...

It's cool...more or less, I am trying to understand when an actual "season" in usaci begins, as the dates seem to run continuously. I asked off to go to the KC show. I won't compete this year but I will next year. I want to spend some time trying to understand how everything works before I spend a bunch of $$$ only to see the season is over.

Tonight I take the fart pipe off, take the other busted front fender off...Maybe put the rad/bumper support back on.

I will also change the oil, flush the gas tank and fuel lines, charge the battery or replace, tweak the carb to try and get it running. I'll take some pics if possible.

New thermostat
New oil cap
Antifreeze
Oil and filter

Total of ~$130
Carberator is leaking gas behind the carb. It was dark so I couldn't tell if it was the gasket or something else. Should be a fairly quick and reasonably priced fix.


Need:
Air box for '84-87 CRX carberated motor 1.5l. If you have one please let me know. Calling junk yards today.

Need to also make sure that it will match up with my truck and the tow rating, so if you know the weight and axle weight of the trailor that would be great.

Which is why you see first gen rex's at finals?

Thought so. ;)


Through all the threads on termpro, I would say that most people have said that 2nd gen rex's are louder. But even still, they are still d*mn loud cars.

Want to make a wager on street a? My truck vs. your rex. I'm going to try street a next year i think. 2 10's, 2 amps, and one fatty battery. :)


BTW, i'm kidding about making a wager, at least a monetary one. My truck just killed another starter and I just dropped $320 on an MP3 player. :crap:
