That yellow civic was missing them. I left a comment saying I scanned them if he wanted to try to replicate them since they are missing on that car.

Also mine is the trunk version, not the hatchback. Which I thought makes it a little bit more unique than most others.

Check the speakers and the fuse. I had the same car, back in the day. I bought from a guy who didn't tell me that the head had a hole in it. It took a lot of water to fill up the radiator, as it filled the whole crankcase. It looked like a nut had gotten jammed under the cam lobe. I took the head off and had it welded up. Simple car to work on. I put new rings and bearings in it and had the head milled. I mixed up the positions of the pistons, Honda has them matched and uses different thickness bearing shells to get the correct oil clearances. The are punched with letters indicating the tolerance. The car had a rod knock after I finished. I put thick oil it,which silenced the knock. I kept it for a year and drove it to Illinois from California. My brother sold it to a friend of his, who changed the oil. Shortly after the the car threw a rod. The car has such a short wheel base and stiff suspension, I remember getting air through intersections. The carburetor is tricky to get the float right.

Have you posted pics of your CVCC?

The one in the first post and post #41 are mine before I bought it. Here are some pictures I took today. I've got it on stands because I bought new tires and am slowly cleaning the wheels for repainting. There is evidence of a mouse (or multiple) inside so wiring might be an issue. When I hooked the battery up to it not much seemed to work. Wipers did, luckily they didn't scratch the crap out of the windshield. It's been fitted with an aftermarket ignition to replace the points as well. Also the engine is stuck. I'd assume it's not too bad because the oil didn't show any shavings and other than being dark it seems fine. In the picture looking at the engine from the driver side is the part that looks like a vacuum solenoid is the system that has the WAI. The red hose is supposed to run to the exhaust and the open side goes to the fender well. The last 2 pictures are the worst rust, except in the front fender wells, on the car.

Now lets play a version of where's Waldo: This car has been sitting since 1988. Can anyone find the evidence (besides overall condition)?
