CRXFi - Chapter Two

Wonderboy's CRXFi has been passed on to me. I picked it up in Binghamton on July 30th 2016. It's a 1988 Honda CRX HF with a 1992 Geo Metro XFi 3-cylinder engine and transmission in it. Click here for the original build thread. It runs and drives, but needs some work. The biggest issue is a blown head gasket. I have another 1992 XFi engine that needs to be assembled, I'll probably put that in the CRX and fix the other engine later to put in my 1994 Metro. And I will be replacing the solid engine mounts with rubber! Something I've wanted to do for years!

On the way home:


The Geo/Suzuki G10 engine:


What color should I paint it? I'm kinda leaning towards a darker green.
