No, it's a full electric

No, it's a full electric conversion CRX with lots of crazy **** I wanna do.

The guy made his lights all LEDs and the rear lights indicate charge while it's charging and ****, it's awesome.

Yeah really, he's not around

Yeah really, he's not around now, so I'll just try and put this d15b7 IM/TB together while I wait, I'm clueless about these vacuum lines.

Which ones are you having trouble with? I pretty much know them all by heart. =)

Yep... that's the one. I would love an electric car with all of the fancy gadgets like that one.

Way cool! Where can I get the plastic sheets? Home depot sucks for that.

Interesting design! I think

Interesting design! I think I would prefer mine to be a little more rigid and extend out a little more around the suspension.

I had never thought about using plastic sheets like that. That guy spent a GRIP on converting that car! And now that CRX weighs about what a Sherman tank does. The nimbleness is one of my favorite parts about a CRX (I've gone as far as to remove the starter to help lighten up the front end... but got tired of bump starting it everywhere... that thing is HEAVY though).

I am seriously thinking about making a rotisserie for my CRX... so I can have an easier time working on the underside. I'll have to remove the engine again, but without it in, the car weighs less than 1300lbs, so a few modified engine stands should do the trick.

actually, the home depot in my town has corrugated plastic 4x8 sheets called coroplast. they would work. of course, plastic will also catch fire if it gets too hot (not as big a danger on an electric car).

when i tackle the underside of my car this summer, it'll be with a combination of coroplast and aluminum sheet. i'll mock it up with cardboard and duct tape first and do some tests.

the underside of my car is terrible compared to a stock honda. i have NO front undertray at all, my rear bumper might as well be a parachute, and all 4 control arms jut way down into the airflow.

that means i have that much more to gain when i clean it up, i guess

Bunger, I'm sure you've seen this, but for the rest, here is a CRX rotisserie:
