LOW&SLOW 92 Civic VX build

Hello all. My names Ryan and I picked up a 92 civic vx in September of 2013 from the dealer I work at. Day I bought it:
work done since purchase:
Muffler delete
Full oem tune up(plugs cap rotor wires fuel filter)
Trans fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid and coolant drain and refill with oem fluids
Oil changed every 2-3k
PCV valve replacement breather box removal and cleaned out, replaced o-rings
Distributor replacement(bearing went bad)
Starter replacement
Alt replacement
Valve adjustment
Tein basis coilovers
Control arm bushing replacement
Oem thermostat
Rear hatch struts
B&M Short shifter w/ energy bushings
4300K hids
Leds where ever possible
Updated 5-wire O2 sensor NTK 24300
Hollow CAT

Was getting 50mpg when I first bought the car but than slowly decreased over the past year. Valve adjustment and new O2 sensor helped the most with the hesitation and random misfire issue I was having. Haven't gone through a full tank yet so can't confirm anything yet. Will start a fuel log once I get through my current tank.
Only current aero mods are the deleted passenger mirror which was already done when I got the car and the fact that it is lowered. Plan on installing a coroplast belly pan and grill block soon. Also have to wire up the mpguino. Been seriously slacking on that. Bought this car as a winter beater because I don't want to drive my accord in the winter. EG hatches are one of my favorite cars out there so it's hard for me not mod it and enjoy it.
Currently how the car sits:

Got some work on the vx today. Removed the egr valve to make sure it wasn't all clogged up, it wasn't so sprayed it down with TB cleaner and reinstalled. Fixed my straight pipe that had a hole in it. Kind of ghetto but it works and is free. Haha
Plasti dipped some small eyelids and made a template for a grill block out of cardboard. Not perfect but it fits. Next one will be flush with the bumper and made of coroplast.
Should be picking up some coroplast this weekend for a belly pan on the civic and my accord that gets Autocrossed. Hopefully will remember to bring my summer tires to work tomorrow to install. Shouldn't have snow tires on when it's 60. Haha
