only have a few good pics of it for now but i will be uploading and updating when a can :D
currently fixing a leaky sunroof as the previous owner never made a good job of it despite covering it with sealant, and as the following pics show, the carbon panel isnt fitting properly :(, it has a bend in it and as much as i try to flex it it wont sit in properly at one side :/

also have a fresh dash that come out of the same car as the bumper come off, current dash thats in the car has been hacked to bits due to the cage, the new dash will be getting fitted soon, with the aim to keep it reasonably tidy around the cage, i will be getting some good pics and any info on the dash swap for future reference and for any others in need of it :D

Have you got the headlights to go with the bumper? They are different between the 16v and VT/siR.
Id love another 16i though. The d16a9 loves the thrash.

So quick update, i had ordered a few bits and bobs for the crx, a new sunroof blank from stuke ( the carbon fibreworx one was leaking badly ), unfortunatly ib had no response from stuke, bought the blank and paid for 48hr postage last wednesday and theres no sign of it, motul rad coolant and oil from tegiwa, there was a mix up with stock numbers so these will be sent out next week when they have coolant back in, i had also bought sir headlights to go with my bumper, again paid for last wednesday and the seller only just got the picked up today after a.....conversation with the seller about why it wasnt showing on the tracking number :/ so all my items haven't been delivered this week, i will get some info up when the stuff arrives

as you can see the front sits slightly higher due to the rivets, seems to be the metal bending thats caused this :(

also received my stuff from tegiwa finally...20160425_200122.jpg only to find out that the rocker gasket has now decided to go, so a new gasket and spark plug seals should be here next week...then il get that sorted and get the oil, filter and coolant done then.. :D. end of may i should have some other bits n bob.. had to buy a second set of sir headlights as i had bought a pair and one is cracked badly :(


also while im on, at some point in the next few months the body work is going to get sorted, its covered in small parking dents, has a nasty on on the drivers door, and the arches will be getting done, instead of a full respray...was going to get the car wrapped in a dark/gunmetal grey color, repaint the interior black again and get the cage painted yellow to contrast the purple parts on the car. if anyones got any info on wrapping or advice, please share :) wont be doing it myself though

You will still have to get the rust and dents sorted out before wrapping the car. So my advice would be just to get it painted as tbh once youve sorted the dents and rust on the arches the car will be nearly prepped for paint.

So wont cost much more getting it painted and it will look alot better than a wrap :)
