thanks for all the love! I haven't done much to the wagon, this semester of school has really killed me. Hope to get another start on in two weeks :)

Goals:

Get this bitch close to finish if not finished!

Well....goals with this died off as I started my senior year of college and dove into my 2 semester long senior design project ontop of studies and all that jaz..than summer classes happened and my final semester of college (fall 2016) happened..

Well I am now graduated, got a job, and I finally got my own place with a garage!

I am finally competely moved in with all my tools and the wagon...I just ordered some parts/tools that I had lost in traslation with all this down time, and I hope to get a started on this thing as soon as the parts/tools get here!

Okie Dokie, had some other stuff going on like drift events and what not so I didn't have much time to update this. But I put a little time into this past weekend.

So here is how she sits right now...





I was redoing the wiring in the engine before I quit working on this thing. I ended up find a rywire tuck harness for pretty cheap so I grabbed that.





And I am do the engine bay harness in techflex stuff similar to the rywire sleeving.





Hoping this comes out nicely...just very tedious and annoying to do.

Well I am very annoyed with myself right now. I thought I had finished the passenger side harness...I quickly found out that I didn't pull enough wire out to be sleeved...so everything is a little to short lol..

So next plan of action is to take all my crappy work off, remove the old tower plugs off the harness since they are not utilized anymore, and methodically put as much sleeving on each group of wires as I can.







At least it still looks like it's going to turn out pretty nice once I fix my fuck up....

Hello!! I'm BACK!

OKAY!! Soo two years later and this car still isn't done. SHOCKER!? But this is the damn year this car gets done! SO life updates: I'm married now..wife and I are getting comfortable into our careers and we pulled the trigger on our 'forever' home last august. We finally found one and moved in last October. It's a gnarly 4 bed/3bath on 5 acres and.... IT HAS A 3 car detached garage! So now I have NO excuse to not finishing this car. A couple months before we decided to move I ran my Miata into a wall at the track. So I decided to retire that shell and swap to another..in the process of doing that I also decided upgrade to a forged bottom end 1.8 engine. This was going on before and after we moved and I FINISHED IT and got it all back together and running a couple weeks ago. I told the wife that I would start on the Civic once the Miata was running and a certified ripper..and it is and here we are! :)

SO game plan! I am regretting extending my strut towers. For one, I hate how they did the cup for me and it also rubbed on the bag. Two, I didn't like how cheap and non adjustable the airlift air struts were. Three, now there are a couple companies that make adjustable air struts that work on the wagon without frame mods. I haven't decided if I'll stay air or not, but that's one reason why I am okay with going back to stock location for the strut tower. I would really like to find someone with a junk wagon shell that is willing to cut their rear struts towers out so I could possibly spot weld the whole strut tower metal section in like factory...but I haven't had good luck with that so far. In the mean time I'm going to try to salvage my modified strut towers and see if I can make it work. And this is where I am now with it.

ALSO: the motor is pulled out of the wagon now..dash and harness is out again as well. We will get to that soon though.

Here is where I am at with the wagon.
