    Iv got a 1.6 16v CR-X which needed a lot of body work, so iv brought a 1.4 twin carb saloon in much better shape to reshell to Rex.

    Water pump, I didn't take pictures of the rest of the bits. The Rex Is now completely striped ready to start putting the Civic together. Before every thing went back on I topped up the underseal, it had already been done at some point.

    Starting to strip out the bits I need from the CR-X loom, I didn't take any more pictures because I had glue from the :tut: loom tape all over my hands.

    Should be a special veto for sedan's such that they don't legally have to run a front number plate.

    Got chance to go down and do a bit on the car today. Got the loom plugged in the engine side just have to get my mate with all the wiring in the other end. There's a lot of lose wires. 07074DB4-D36F-4F49-A04D-408504E52903-510-0000005F79402230_zpsa5749ac5.


    Also made a start on the fueling system, got the inline filter and fuel pump in. 0DE34F9E-9EDB-404E-A6E0-671655DCE117-510-00000066DC1E4095_zpse4553318. 5504195C-05BA-4DDD-B37A-45746780BCA5-510-00000066E2E93143_zps6cec4f95.


    1st idea going to change it tho because it a fair bit above the tank. But I don't really want it under the car, so I'm not sure what to do.
