Cool My new project :D (rebuilding 1989 Honda CRX HF - considering VX engine swap)

So, I didn't think I should post this anywhere else so here it is
This is my new project/new found love.. A 1989 Honda CRX HF. This baby needs A LOT of work. And later on, once bodywork has been completed and I get it running to its fullest capabilities I plan on doing a VX swap into it. Here are just a few photos..

Follow the link: Crx hf - a set on Flickr

So, If any have interior parts (Rear Cargo divider?) or really anything that can get this thing lookin' good again let me know. I just picked up a new hatch for $75 and I am hoping to get it on around this weekend... Interior needs a MAJOR cleaning also. All rear interior stripped..

Will be updating with progress!

Wow man, you have a lot of work in front of you! I would really be impressed if you turned this thing around to a drivable gas sipper!

Look into fiberglass fender and quarter panels. Someone may still make them.

I have the rear plastic panels for the quarters, if theyre still any good.

The little deals that say HF and Honda on them?..
The piece that i am getting, the whole rear quarter panel from the door to the plastic panel, has one on it, however its blank. it doesn't even say Honda on it...
And do you know if any place that makes fiberglass quarter panels? I may have to replace the front two.. front bumper seems to be revive-able..
