Day 1..

Got started stripping the interior out and removing the sound proofing. Boot floor looks alright.

Missing bit of trim on passenger wing, how difficult will it be to find 1 of these? I made enquiries on ebay and nobody has replied

I am not sure if this will help but try posting a question on Quora and Reddit. I hope that you find the answer that you need in order to finish this build. I am sure that you will not have a hard time searching for automotive accessories for it. There are plenty of shops to explore such as 4wheelonline. Good luck with it.

I seen a pre-facelift wing being sold locally on Facebook here in Northern Ireland with this piece still attached for £20.

If you're stuck, I can collect and post it for you, even just the trim piece!

That would be much appreciated mate, if need be il buy the whole wing for 20 and you can keep the wing as a spare.

Day 2

Didnt have much time today so no pics all I managed to do was get it jacked up a bit and have a roll around underneath with a torch and see what horrors awaited me. My arse was twitching like a rabbits nose as I got down there

Pleasant surprise it looks much better than I expected under there. 1 small 2 inch patch at the back of the inner sill that I already knew about and other than that the sills, jacking points and front half of the chassis look clean and solid.
The rear half has a little bit of surface rust here and there but none around the suspension mounting points or chassis rails that I could see, mostly behind the back bumper but doesn't look too drastic for a 22 year old motor. Should be able to sort that myself over the weekend.

So far only welding I can see it needing is 1 rear wheel arch repair panel, the other rear arch looks alright. Pleased about that.

Reached out to the seller but both the arches have sold yesterday unfortunately! Will keep a look out for one for you!

I noticed there is a few Honda Parts groups specific to Scotland on Facebook. Try those!

No sunroof

Windy windows, never had them in all my 20 years of driving. Love it

Back seats out and remove more soundproofing. This wasn't coming out as cleanly as the stuff in the boot

I've ordered from them lots and never had one problem
