    2DrSE-i's....SE-i Buld thread

    This is my Project SE-i build thread! This is where I will put my To-do list, as well as current progress. Currently, I am getting the car ready for Import Alliance 2010! Heres my to-do list

    - Get a new Passengers seat (Ripped OEM leather makes Amy angry...LOL)
    - OBD1 Swap
    - Timing Belt
    - P/S Pump

    Thats all I have for now.

    In Progress, OBD1 Swap!
    Distributor Adapter Plate. Bought from Cygnus-x1! Amazing quality, everything is there. WELL worth the money, Buy while you still can!


    I forgot my old pictures are all on my old cell phone of my OBD-1 harness, so I'll have to get those off to post them.

    how about....doing a claybar on that car? I think you could really restore a lot of the color.

    OK Hazwan, so i owe you an apology. After doing a bit of research, the CRX i found that seat in actually had a prelude drivers seat in it, and no passengers seat. So i do, in fact, have a prelude seat sitting in my office right now.

    If its red car than no clay will help, Red is most exposed color to the sun so it bleaches over time. one thing you can do is to strip clear ans respray clear cote. as far the cheapest option.. I had a friend do this to hes BMW e28.. looked sexy after that.. Not perfect but better.

    No progress really. I got hit a couple of months ago in the rear quarter, fubared it all up. Still working out payment on that. I'll be keeping the car regardless.

    I did get my suspension parts. Upper control arms, bushings, radius arm bushings, lower ball joints, outer tie rod ends.

    Bump! Did a bit of work on the car today. I've had a Vigor mirror (Thanks for the info Messy, it is a nice upgrade!) for a couple of months, and some new pioneer speakers for a couple of years (YIKES). Finally decided to get to work on them.


    Old Stock, small mirror

    Stock mirror on top of Vigor Mirror

    New mirror installed!



    Now the issue with the speakers (and why its taken me FOREVER to get them in) Is the fact that the stock speakers in the SE-i are SUPER TINY and the OEM Bose speaker enclosure is too. This is the OEM Bose enclosure with the speakers my dad bought me for my 16th birthday. Needless to say, with 6x9s in the back, these aren't heard much.

    Heres the OEM 6.5" speaker enclosures. The speakers I bought are Shallow mount, but to fit in the OEM baskets, they would have to be incredibly shallow. Only a few speakers actually fit.

    Clearly these aren't one of those few.

    Heres what i did!
    Safety first...These are my shooting glasses, don't make fun of the ULTRA TACTICALNESS YELLOW HIGH DEF glasses.

    First pass with the dremel

    All done!

    Test fit, much better!

    And all back together.
