Default SUP. ek hatch pnw

Hi

just got this bad lil mamma jamma
$1600
1996 dx
171k
5 speed
exhaust is all messed up, needs wheels/tires, and the paint could be better, but i love her. interior is cherry
not a single aftermarket part to be found. had a bunch of community college parking passes in the back seat, environmental awareness stickers on the back window, and black seat covers all around. receipts for maintenance and work in glovebox.
offerup comeup.
i started with an eg coupe, then got ek coupe, then randomly honda shadow, then had baby, got 02 odyssey. now have 2 year old baby, 02 odyssey, 99 shadow, and project 96 ek hatch.

thanks guys! im up in seattle. technically ballard.

plans are modest. this aint no crazy turbo project thread.
truly i wish this car had zero miles, zero anything, simply brand new to me. id be completely happy with it like that. alas, its 2018 and showing its age.
dont care too much about performance right now. i will be keeping this car, so i will address performance if and when the current engine runs its life.
i need to address some of routine maintenance that has been overlooked throughout the years.
really i just want it to be tightened up. replace all bushings i can find with better than stock ones. replace or cleanup all the old stuff thats worn out
will definitely be sourcing some older small clean honda wheels to wrap new tires on this week.
rear brakes and all that jazz from a dc2 hopefully soon
have some tein coilovers from a 97 integra, i think they fit?! (someone plz confirm thatd be rad)
the driver door closes badly, and has some weird dent in the edge. it kinda looks like the door was opened hard into a pole or something
interior is so clean, i might revert back to the original receiver and just keep it as clean as i possibly can forever.

its day three of ownership and last night at a bar, at my employee party, someone randomly kicked my driver mirror off. so thats awesome.

Honda's hub caps definitely screamed 90's! My ek hatch has the "buzzsaw" style. About to get some new shoes for mine, 15x7 kosei k1s. Great find!
