At this point I got sidetracked and decided it was time for a partial wire tuck.



Wires have been extended.



And labeled.



My wiring chart. Gotta stay organized!!!
Then I took off the passenger fender and got sidetracked again!!!



The factory undercoating was old and worn. After scrubbing it down I resprayed it with some Rustoleum Proffesional Grade Undercoating.

After drilling out a factory hole I was able to fit this grommet in and route the wiring into the fender here under the wiper motor.



I ran the wiring through the channel behind the fender and drilled out another factory hole to fit a grommet where the wires pop out.



Here's a close up to show how it's all mounted. I used an adhesive zip tie base to hold the wiring close to the car.



Headlights connected.



This is where I decided to stop for the night. Hopefully I can get a little work in tomorrow cause I probably won't get much work in this weekend. Monday-Wednesday next week is when I can really dive into it again.

Until Next Time...:bigok:

not bad on the tuck... but why not use some heatshrink and then teckflex to cover the wires as opposed to electrical tape?

This is the first time I've "tucked" anything, and the partial tuck was decided on a whim. If it had been planned and I could have researched it more I may have ordered some supplies for it.

Right now I'm just working with what I've got and figuring it out as I go along!!! :bigok:

same shit i did for my tuck i would have went the show route with all the nice heatsink etc.. that chase uses. but sometimes you just work with what you got plus i doubt your trying to earn points with the judges.


i have always been a fan of your simple yet clean crx . so good luck with the rest of the build trust im subscribed.

No more progress... but here's a few more pics to give you guys more of an idea of the nature of this build.

Yeah, my car is anything but a show car so I'm not sweating the tuck job at all. All the solder joints were heatshrunk so it should hold up fine.

Although it may make chase cringe, I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Now onto the pics.
Here's some of the parts I've accumulated for the build.

very awesome, im subscribed!
x2.


Do Work SilentWrath!
damn coming along nicely man
goodluck man looks good! I cant wait to get mine going tuesday.
Thanks guys, I'm only working on it when I have the time and patience to do good work.
The final outcome should be nice. :bigok:

With that said, I had a little extra time to finish masking off the drivers side wheelwell and undercoat it.



While I was at it I cleaned the corrosion off the upper and lower battery brackets and sprayed them with undercoating as well.
The wrinkle black finish should look nice under the hood.







I also split the engine and transmission, and removed the old clutch/pp/flywheel.



Here's the freshly turned flywheel I'll be using. '92 cx unit. Lightest OEM d-series flywheel.



I should be able to finish up the mini wire tuck on Monday and hopefully get started on a few other things.
I'll keep you guys posted.

Stay tuned for more picture filled posts next time!!!
