FS Honda insight aluminum rear brake drums
 
Pulled these from a local junk yard and had plans to transplant them to my Civic CX hatch but never got around to it. Now the car is gone and these have just been taking up space.

Save 3 lbs of rotational weight per side compared to cast iron rear drums. These have been turned and are ready to go. I think I spent at least $20 getting them turned. I'll sell these for $35 shipped USPS OBO. Heck of a lot cheaper than buying light weight wheels.

Should fit all civics with the smaller 25 mm rear brake shoes with no problems (models like the EX have the larger 35 mm rear shoes, the more base models have the smaller 25 mm shoes). Should also fit the 35 mm rear shoe cars but you'll either need to make 25 mm shoes fit or live with the shoes sticking out past the brake drum. I think they also work on CRX's. There is a how to out there on the net if you have any questions.

Pictures coming soon.

I have these same drums on my civic VX, yes, they will fit the CRX's and civics from 1984 up to atleast 1995 and they are a perfect fit, no modifications needed.

There are early CRX hf models that came with alloy drums with steel liners, they're a fairly popular swap for auto cross, when they can be found.

I tried to send you a PM in reply but I guess I don't have enough posts? I'll try again after a few posts.

I realize these are sold. That being said, I think this is an interesting idea. Question: do you have any suggestions on whether doing a similar thing would work on a honda fit GE (2009+) ? And if so, or if I were to investigate, how much of the brake parts should I yank off should I have access to such an insight?

You said there is a how-to.. can you provide a link to it? I haven't found it yet.

thanks
