Default DIY CRX front on Civic ED/EF

HI all,

i've seen soo many topics with the Q: is it possible?
yeah it is. however the crx and 4thgen is getting less common these days, so it would be a little late but i thought it would be a good thing to write a diy anyway

here is a DIY for you all with pictures.


strip it


crx fender and crx bumper mounted.
With the crx bumper, you MUST remove the bumpermounts on the frontend of the car. otherwise the bumper will stick out a few cm's and creates an ugly emptyplace under the headlights.
I used the Civic innerbumper piece.


the difference with the fenders and notice the gap..



and ACTION!.... Cut! (notice the different heights for the amber lights for the crx and civic)


make sure your fender pieces are lined up. use the 2 squares for the perfect fitting.


Just weld it on a few places and testfit it on the car to be 100% sure.


I decided to fill the gaps for the amber signal lights. because i like clean stuff.


started to use bondo putty (its called plamuur in here)

i can only add 8 photos, so i do a subble post...

layer afther layer



testfitting


removed the bumper mount. There are a few wiretapped holes for M6 bolts behind this mout.




these mounts on the headlights will block the cornerlights, so i made it adjustable.


pics with everything fitted, just waiting for primer paint and color.

Now that's a how-to post! Plenty of pics and they tell the story.

I hate the hatch from end. This looks good, IMO.

haha yeah, i removed the turbo setup.
i recently installed a 6pcuk clutch + 4kg flywheel and now it needs some time to (i dont know the english word) adjust to the new condition.
the turbo manifold was cracked at the wg so it needed to be welded anyway.
i left the intake with the BOV and FMU ( i chipped my ecu with stock injectors).
but ive got the 450cc injectors ready for over 2 years lol

Just to confirm - The CRX bumper beam does bolt on to the Civic shell, right?
