Just Finished putting all the trim back on. I still need new window rubber for the windshield and new rubber for door windows. I found the hub caps for the VX wheels too.

I just put on a new distributor and some Bosch Platinum +2 plugs in, it is much more responsive and I find myself needing to downshift while going up hills much less often. I also installed some new 155/70/R13 tires. Since then my last tank went up to 55mpg.




Here you can see the passenger seat. I am swapping in leather seats from a 2000 Integra GSR. It's actually a lot more involved than you would think. It took me about 4 hours to do the passenger seat and next weekend I will tackle the drivers seat.

What do you mean by "hubcaps for the VX wheels?" I see from the pictures that you have the centercaps.

Looking good

Yeah I meant center caps. I'm actually still missing one on the other side. The guy I bought the wheels from gave me five center caps and somehow I can only find three of them now.

Yikes... I dont think I would use someone who accidentally painted over both of your auto tags! hehe... its a pretty cherry paint job.

I still want to find a car to do the old Rustoleum Paint Job on. I managed to meet a guy on the disc golf course who had his painted a silver color and said it was the easiest thing he had ever done.

I stated it above $1800 for the car and $1500 for the paint. But I have close to $6k in it so far with the wheels, tires, seats, trim, etc etc. that I have purchased.
