Vitaly, the civic will be used for winter. It will get Krowned rustproofed, but no drilling of holes.
I wont put more than 5,000 on it from now to early April.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

you need to put some dark coloured rims on it and deck it. I always thought these were the best civics!

nice car...you should try and get a hold of honda canada and see if they'd want anything to do with it....at my work we got a hold of a clean del sol and honda canada wanted to purchase it for shows and such (i work at honda)

all in all a great car..i used to have a 93 SI in immaculate condition, no winters and always stored with low KM...ended up selling it for just over $7000. great cars...especially if you want a toy to play around with thats not gonna cost you much!

Great buy!

No thanks..
Honda Canada upset me regarding disclosing some info I wanted to know, and they wouldnt allow me to take pics of my Crx outside of the Alliston plant.

That's a funny looking M3



Very clean, I'll give you that... congrats. Shame to winter drive it though, there really aren't many '91 Civics that look like that anymore.

Cool

Well I finished my engine bay detail.. took about 4 days total.

I used WD-40 and a paintbrush and 4 microfiber towels.
Works amazing on 20 year old buildup of dirt and rustproofing. No joke.
Car had been sitting for 10+ years.. Buildup of rustproofing and dust on it takes its toll.






BEFORE:

AFTER:





New hood insulator.
(89-91 Civic Si hatches did not come with one in Canada)




New powdercoated valve cover. 10% Gloss texture black.
Holds up much better than OEM wrinkle flat black enamel.




Sorry for the dark garage pics. LOL

WD-40 FTW
