well, got the subframe apart...mostly...just the lower arms are still attatched.

I will be painting it, if the weather gets better.

springs, sway bar, sway bar mounts, are all painted.

Its just a pain moving the stuff around, as its all heavy as crap!


Thanks to my brother helping me move this stuff.













Also, one thing my brother and I were thinking while looking at the car last night....these cars are are easily swapable for different kinds of racing.
for example, i am building everything up for drag racing....but, how simple it would be to swap front ends or rear end assemblies with a road race settup.
pretty much everything unbolts, and swaps....so in essence, I could have two race cars in one....one for the twisties, and one for the straight line..

anyway, just some things we were thinking.

If you like it thats what matters, but... I think you should paint the wheel wells black. Maybe like a truck bedliner type stuff. Something that will take a beating while in the burnout box and its all gonna be black up there anyway. May as well make it uniform.:)

Yo. Getting the red LED's? And shag.

And I agree. Your brother is stepping up to the plate. Even if he is some Hondastang lover. :D

Yes, that I am.... And for those who have not driven a CRX, I'm telling you.... you are missing out. Kind of like the Miata, there's something to these cars. It may not be speed, but handling and plenty of it. Of course, light-weight is the key to success.
