so i was looking for a beater, found this 4G civic the thing had no back window, it was sitting on 4 spare tires. Apparently the dude screwed another guys ex 6 months after they brokeup, and he took out his anger on the civic. No matter tho, my buddy has another dead civic that i stole the hatch from and i had a set of GSR's i just bought the week before.

I thought it was a decent deal at the time considering it was running (I paid $500), it burned oil tho, it had a decent body, rusty of course but not that bad considering its prob been thru a bunch of winters.

well the day after i bought it and cleaned it all up, i noticed a check engine light come on (wasnt on when i bought it), and it was starting to bog really badly at low speeds. then on my drive home from work, it bogs really bad again, and i hear a CLUNK! turns out my tbelt snapped....oh well i guess i got hosed on the deal, you live you learn!

anyways enough about my blabbing heres the pixors!









man these were ugly! they quickly got changed out for a set of spare Si seats i had!

looks like it is going to be a nice project what are your plans for the car???
nothing drastic as its gonna be my beater, i want something relaible, thats all! and i already have another project car in the works (see my sig) that is also currently at a halt due to clutch/transmissions issues.

altho i do plan on sanding the car down repainting it white (with spray paint haha), so the hatch matches and so i can get some deep marks out due to it being keyed lol....

thanks for the comments everyone! rep fo those who posted!!! :holla:

looks good, IMO on the new hatch put the red center piece between the lights on there i think it looks alot better. 500 isnt that bad even if it aint running but ran when you got it
ya that will be done! i just have to take it off the old white hatch that i replaced

give me your wheels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hmmmmmm......thanks but no thanks lol

nice pickup man!!! you wanting to sell those blades?
i just got em no way im sellin! haha

i got really lucky on those wheels too picked them up for $175 from this older guy that originally had a GSR, then he got a 350Z, and when i picked up the wheels there was a brand new 335i coupe! the guy liked his 2 doors lol.

i dont know if youve taken them off before but be careful bc those lil tabs that you take the nut off to remove it like to break easy. ive broken a couple when replacing mine

no i havent actually, thanks fo the heads up!

so i think im gonna decide against the B swap for now, im just gonna pick up this rebuilt D15 with about 12-15K on it for $350. the swap will be much easier as i wont have to buy any swap parts. I do have a B18 available in my other beater DA but im gonna sell that one to my buddy for $500 so really im only putting the cost of the engine in the car, thus keeping things cheap.
