Okey, so since my climate control is broken I have been looking for a replacement. Prices for a stock replacement are ridiculous and that faceplate is just plain ugly..
My idea was either a 1990-93 Accord climate control swap, cons are the knobs break I guess, Pros are it looks good. Link: http://www.used-oem.com/media/07/a20...94792d16_m.JPG

Second idea seems to be a much better option, plus I like the looks of it. I would take the 92 to 95 Civic Climate control and place it into the CRX, cons fit is kind of tight, Pros I am not going to have anything breaking (If I do it right), and these controls are cheap! Here is the guide for that one: EG climate control into CRX - D-series.org

Any suggestions or experience anyone else has had would be helpful. Better ideas are always good too

so you like bodywork? does that car run and drive? have you been in any nearby junkyards yet? be sure to search craigslist in your area also. alot of guys strip their crx interiors so I sure you can find that stuff pretty easily, just a matter of time. Glad to see you putting it back on the road. you seem pretty motivated.

Just tried to align it... They said I will need a camber kit to make the left side align correctly. Hmm..

Wow. I'm impressed. I'll be watching this progress too. Where did you get such a car? Wow.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I got it from a guy who parked it backwards on a hill... the parking break went out i guess

Dad is almost done buffing his project out, then we can finally pull mine into the shop. I've been on hold for a while now, just cleaning interior up mainly.. Still stripped, however.

It does involve some traveling, but I would suggest that you camp daily on Portland, and Seattle's Craig's Lists.

There are plenty of rust free ones out this way, that as a dead mechanic's special; you could probably find for about $500. or so. Then you would have tons of parts.

This is a beautiful time of year. Combine a trip to the Oregon coast, rent a tow dolly; and you are set!

Appreciate your vigor; press on!!!

Got a new hood and Pass side fender. gunna try and get to taking the bumper off tonight!

I would like some input on what kind of armrest I should use for the interior? EG or EK? Done some research and I really dont know what would be best...

Plus, I was considering repainting all interior, keeping it blue of course. But I dont know how well this will work and what color exactly I would use?

And my drivers side panel is torn up.. Am I just going to have to purchase a new one some where?

Any aero mods recommended before I get to painting? I am getting rid of the antenna.. What else... Hmm...

Oh, BTW. I got the climate control in, wired, and working. It is the same kind of climate control as out of my 1994 civic ex. I still havent mounted it though cause I dont have a solid interior piece to measure with:P Will post pictures tomorrow!
