Default My 91 Honda Civic EF9 build thread

So first off i would like to tell you all that i live in Jamaica, and i apologize for my grammar...I finally decided to do a build thread, but its been four years since I have the car and a lot of history which i cant bother get into, and i'm sure you don't want to sit and read...so i going summarize it:-

Went to a housing complex saw the car, looked at it...was in pretty bad shape with all tires flat and color burned out, asked the owner how much.....said $250,000.00 (which is about $2,942 US) ahh i took the number and left....really wanted a EF Civic but couldn't find any so i decided to call back the owner, after couple no no no s and a hell no! I bought the car.......for $90,000.00 ($1,059)

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE, MINUS THE RIMS (BLUE)

AND THE REASON I BOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE OF THIS

NOT KNOWING ABOUT THIS, OR WHAT IT MENT

I PUT ON EIBACH COIL OVERS,TOKICO SHOCKS AND CHANGED THE RIMS (have to thank Gary Barrett from Cayman, helped me out a lot with things for this car)

For a SiR it was scrapped nothing left on it...no side skirts, back lip, seats, floor mats, back tray....so the hunt was on. I use to live at Superior looking for parts. the first thing to go where the seat cause they were torn and by chance i found the exact pair...

MINUS THE BACK HEAD RESTS...THOSE CAME WAY AFTER

didn't know about this until a friend of mine got a car with the original rubber one, so i started looking out for one. One day i was on the mall and saw a EF with it on it, so.........i kinda sat and waited on the owner to come back....after about a hour or two he finally did. after a little negotiating and stuff i ended up buying it from him and screwing it off his car on the spot

THIS...

A rare original EF "dash mat" accessory i managed to find....they say its EFs "cupholder"

This....original EF window visors with "civic"

i was at Superior and waiting for them to empty the container.....with hearing that there were EF parts inside i offered to help and when i saw the doors i found these on them in perfect condition and bought them

SIDE SKIRTS....(Superior)

so after i got ALL those things i had parked the car from September 08 and took my time stripping the cars interior down and taking out the engine...with help from the manual i ending up dong everything myself (guess thats why it took so long)...bagging and labeling every nut and bolt, yea i had to put everything back EXACTLY where they came from. Hate when they fling everything into a paint can or some crap they find....

So after i was done i carried the strip car to the body man.....here are some of the pics:-

took awhile...and was in a rush kinda to get the car up and running. hated seeing it just sitting there....so i called in help. while they were putting in the engine i was fixing up back the interior

after many long nights and intsalling everything i had under my bed the interior was finally finished...

Looks good!! I wish I could find mint seats & carpets and other parts like you did. Around where I live it's rare. I have the same white EF Hatch and also a fan of trying to keep everything OEM. Keep us updated on the build.

That is a giant steering wheel, you have so little leg clearance. If you are considering any type of racing, good luck with heel-toes. lol.

The OP was refering to the carbon fiber mid wing, not the dash cover.
This was a great find and a steal of a price, would have cost at least 4 times that around here or more. Keep up the good work.
