Usually try to make approx 400-500 on each car and turn them quickly. Most of the time things work out, other times you run into concerns and break even or even lose a little. I look for running cars with minor concerns (wheel bearings, brakes, exhaust etc)...quickest and easiest to turn with minimal unforseen concerns. I do have one currently that needs and engine (the 94). I am waiting for some new donor cars at the U-pull it yard or this will become a parts car (too expensive to rebuild when you can get an engine for less that $100).

That's cool, XFi. I didn't know you did that! I have been thinking about doing something similar for a while. Just buying older FE cars, fixing, and reselling them may be something worth doing one of these days. I'm certain there will be more and more people looking for them as gas prices go up.

I just do it on the side, try to turn one a month. Enjoy doing it and the extra $ never hurts. Got really good response from a local classified by taking out an ad like...Wanted, Geo Metro. Any Year Any Model Any Condition. Cash Paid. Picked up two of the three I bought this month from this.

So what do I search for on ebay? 92-95 civic fuel relay?

Did you get to calibrate the MID yet?

Got my Civic fixed today and got back into my groove. Car is setting on 49.6 mpg on a fresh tank with about 180 miles so far. Dealer guys knocked down for me abit while they had it in there care.

Fixed today was:
new power steering pump
new drivers window switch
new drivers side rear spring
new trunk liner sides
two new tires
front/rear aligenment
fixed something that was causing a slight miss
checked A/C and alot of other stuff while they had it.

My car now drives better than it did when new.

H-T conversation:

SVOboy (9:08 PM 7/6/2006): Still got a crx main relay for sale?
jdmDAsix (1:45 AM 7/7/2006): its all from a DA. it should fit in a crx.
SVOboy (9:18 AM 7/7/2006): How much you want?
jdmDAsix (2:56 PM 7/7/2006): $7 shipped. or if you have your old relay you can just solder the cracks.
