That is a super clean and rust free wagon! I wish I could find one, every wagon I've seen for sale now has ton of rust in the rear quarter panels. Quite a find you got there. Keep up the good work!

Thanks buddy! The only rust in the entirety of the car was the rear muffler which has already been replaced.

I love that rear hatch. Especially since the inner tail lights arent as long.

More pictures!

Soon, installing a denso o2 tomorrow, I'll redo the front bumper gap to fit properly as well and I'll show my mild wire tuck.

Alright so I figured it might be time for a quick update, so far I've:

Installed USDM cupholders with "custom" sizing (thanks mike h!)
Installed a dome light delay (basically a capacitor so that when the doors are shut the light stays on for about ten seconds.)
Alpine type S sub with some random 6" front speakers, removed the two rear 4" and the 6x9", and a new pioneer headunit
Minor wire tuck
Replaced the cargo bay hook with a functional one
Replaced non functioning antennae with a generic powered one
Detailed it to the shit house
Minor rust fix (small amount on hatch hinge, hence removal d.I.y. writeup)
"Installed" a cb7tuner.com sticker!!

Now to the bad news.

I recently went to Japan, and whilst I was there my friend was driving the car and apparently the trans has broken. No warning lights, starts working but fails when hot.

I got it home today, I'll have to see what's happened.

For now, have a couple pictures

Lachlan







Also I bought another bloody Honda.

$100 H22 VTIR Manual ATTS BB6!

I hope the Trans fix goes smooth for you.
From the pics it looks like that bb6 is LHD, or is it a photo illusion?

Illusion



I think the trans is a TCU error, as it used to no illuminate the d4/S light when it got a code (15 for the NC speed sensor which I cleaned and fixed)

The fact it doesn't do that makes me think its broken.

Can't check it for a couple.more days.

Alright, time for an update!

So, the other day an accord popped up for $200 running, and registered, I went and picked it up.

92 EXI, sadly non 4ws


But it had a few goodies.

The first one is that the entire front end and mirrors had been replaced because a bus driver has run in to the car ( minor damage but the government just paid for it), and it had some nice floor mats and some other little bits in it. It has a lot of K's but the trans seems in great condition, so im going to swap it into my wagon (once I find out what parts you're meant to replace when changing it, I don't know much about auto's, any help here would be appreciated!)

So for today, I had a little project. OEM electric moving seats!

It took a lot of work to complete, because I had to swap my seat bottom and back over to the electric seat rail, and its a lot of work trying to do that without damaging anything, but here is the final result!



I'm really happy with it.

The best thing is that all of my broken parts on my wagon were all front end, so this will fix a lot of issues, and I've already made my money back in parts. Win win!

Can't wait to get my wagon back on the road, but I'm driving my intwgra at the moment so I'm not in too much of a hurry

Whoa are you serious???!!!! That cheap?

It is not even rusted! They make you pay more up here in PA for rusted ones. It still has center caps.

What trim levels did you get down there in Australia? The same as US or Canada? Or other markets?

Did you make a DIY on the seat swap? I don't believe we got electric seats in US. I am very interested in this accessory? Or maybe it was OEM on certain trims?

Edit- If you want to make your pics smaller, go to the hosting site, (I use photobucket) and find your account options. It should give you an option to change the frames. It defaults around 1000 and I think I set mine to around 900 or 800. It just makes it easier for members to read and see what you have posted.

I prefer the larger sizes but I can change it if it makes it easier.

Rust isn't a problem here because we don't get snow. No snow = no salt sticking to car = no rust.

The seat swap is self explanatory.

There are four bolts holding the bottom of the seat to the seat rail, and three holding the back.

First you remove the plastic trim on both sides, on the recliner handle side, there are two screws, with one under a plastic trim part.

The other side on non power seat rails has a small plastic piece around the buckle, two screws. Power seat rail has that as well (slightly shaped differently) and then four screws on a larger trim piece underneath.

The reclining seat handle just pulls off (with force!)

Take that off.

Remove the four standard bolts for the seat bottom, and then it should pull out.

To remove the seat back, first take the bottom of the seat back from behind out. There are two different ways I've seen it done so far, the first one is two screws at the bottom, with the other being three plastic clips, similar to the plastic trim clips on the door skins.

Remove that, and then remove the plastic holder for the seat fabric, so that you can pull the fabric up enough and the foam up enough so you can access the two bolts. Undo those with a ratchet.

Then on the other side there is one 12mm. Undo that, And it will all come out.

Wiring wise you just need a ground and a constant +12v. I just connected it to my speaker amp, but you can do it however you'd like.

Its quite easy.

Yeah I like the wheels it comes with, I was thinking about cleaning them up and using them in place of my eurolines for daily driving, so that I can have a more aggressive fitment for car shows etc.

This car Is an EXI, I've never learnt much about trim levels as wagons here only came in one trim level, aerodeck.

The best trim.level we got is the 4WS models,

They have nearly an identical setup to the third gen prelude 4ws, including leather interior, and the seats are 6 way powered.

Up, down, forward, back, and seat back forward and back.

They're pretty cool, but very hard to find.

If I find them cheap I'll install those retaining my current interior as I really like the suede sort of fabric.

Wooo.

Still haven't set about pulling the trans out as I am busy wrecking the other car.

I'm also thinking about going with EDM fog lights, what do you fine people think?

Alright, just a minor update: everything back together!

I REALLY need to lower this car, that front wheel gap is absolutely huge. I'm sure it will go lower once the suspension settles (been in the air for a little over four months) but even still.

Oh well, off to clean the car.

Ive changed my mind's about a couple things since I got the car, so I'll e implementing those once it's registered again. Just needs one bolt that I broke (trans cooler, doh) and alot of a/t fluid.

Also, check the new sedan front!

Time for pics





And here's a sneaky pic of my Integra. Cf painted bonnet, recaro bucket seat, stripped interior, function and form type 1's, and is currently my daily.
