Oke, a little update. [pictures will be on here soon, sorry]
I have the car for like 3,5 weeks now, I'm glad that I own it now cuz now she is in good hands!!  :love:

 
I found out a few things, noticed some things, replaced some things and a few things happend:

- after one week I found out there was a loose spark plug!! :knuppel:
- found out there is a ED9 brake pump on it, so she doesn't brake very smooth.
- replaced the rear brake pads, they were done.
- my battery died last week, replaced it.
- my dynamo died today.
- when I let the vtec kick in and drive fast, and then when I let the gaspedal go, sometimes its stuck a little in the beginning point [in the normal position] so when I want to push it in again, I have to push it harder as result a big shot of gas <= any ideas what that can be??


a few things that are wrong [I knew about the most when I bought it, the price was fear] , offcourse everything will be replaced/fixed as soon as possible! :

- clutch is very heavy [no sport] , the pedal is stuck sometimes and you hear the clutch grind.
- constant felosity joint is tickin'.
- fuseekogel is almost done. [sorry don't know the english name]
- wheel bearings are almost done.
- the back is leaking, I think the tail lights are not water proof anymore, cuz there is water in the trunk.
- left front window is closing very badly.
- there is mold on the sunroof cover.


a few things I don't like:

- CRX ED9 seats.
- grey  speedometer. [tellerbak]
- she is lowered more in the rear.
- the rims are not my taste and to wide, no lowering possible.
- they spray painted the front bumper lights.
- she has a lot of small dents and the body could use a new paintjob.


As you can read I have a lot to do to make her [and me] happy again!
All I need now is time and a little luck.  :up:

It SUCKS that my dynamo is broke, the plan was to go get some parts this weekend and go to a meeting.. Grrrrrr! :banghead: %#@!#

Oke, again a little update, this time with pic's.

My EE9 stood still for like 4 weeks, cuz I couldn't find the problem..   [curious? check: http://www.civicvtec.org/forums/index.php/topic,3002.0.html ]   ..so the waiting was on the 3rd dynamo.

Today I received the package with my dynamo [thnx K-F!] and EE9 brake pump, since there is a ED9 pump on the car.
I installed the dynamo and the car finally worked again!!  :love:

So me and a mate drove to the car-wash to clean the car from sand, dust and bird-crap.
After the good cleaning we drove true town, but suddenly the lights started to dim.. the rpm meter stopped.. OH-OW! I REMEMBER THIS!!
And yes, no power, AGAIN!! So there we stood..
I pulled over a car and asked the guy if he could take us home to get my mates car.. that was ok, but he looked a bit scared.  :tong:
So we took my mates car and towed my car back home, and now I'm back where I left! And I still don't know what the problem is!! :banghead:


Anyway here are some pics from last week, as far as the interieur/exterieur goes: I only placed some floormats in it and sanded the 1's on the number-plates. :tong:
I also replaced the pedal rubbers and such but you don't see that on the pictures.
The rest of the interieur, exterior and engine-bay is how I bought it.

Btw, during the shoot the car was very sandy and covered with dust from standing still:

This is how the interieur-exterieur looks right now, I allready got 1 OEM front right bumper light [help me out with the left 1 guys] , a new right backlight, and a few other stuff.
I want original seats in it, original speedometer [tellerbak] , another CAI, OEM or Momo stearing wheel, I want to get rid of these rims, lower the car, and some other things to make it more OEM.

Access side-skirts, EF9 spoiler, new paintjob, engine-revision and such things are future plans.

The mechanical parts are more important for me right now, cuz there is still a lot to do, small things and bigger things, to make her safe, reliable and smooth working.
Or in this case, to make her work AT ALL!

I'll keep you guys updated.

One thing i don't get is... you went to the carwash, got the car cleaned but on the pics its dirty again? or are the pictures from another time :huh?:
What's the shape of the body panels and bumpers? any dents? and you know sanding down that 1 is illegal right? :police:

what kind of radio you got in your car? that front looks awfully familiar.

These pic's are from a week ago, so this was before the 3rd dynamo - car wash story.

There is/was rust on the wheel arches, but one of the last owners removed it a bit and put something on it so it wouldn't get any worse, but it doesn't look very nice.
For the rest there is no bad rust goin' on, but who knows whats under the skirts and such..
She has a lot of small dents, and I think the right front panel and hood were made dent free after a small accident, if you look closely on the pics you can see it on the front of the hood and you see a small gap between the right headlight and upper bumper strip.

And yes I knew sanding the 1 is illegal.  :tong:

The radio is an old Medion radio from the Aldi  :grin: , slow-bad-quality-peace-of-crap!  :retards:, but its temporary and it works..
