    sold! But here's my build thread for those interested.

    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.

        Damn clean cb9,
        Hope your moddin goes well.

          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 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


              Also I bought another bloody Honda.

                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?

                  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.

                    I like how there is no rubber pads on the rear bumper step.

                      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
