    Pico's Daily Hatch

    After much regret after selling my 88 Sedan DD and having only the 89 to drive. I started searching for another DD to get around in. After searching and getting no where I came across this one here on the forum last Sunday being sold by kk8.
    The pics were taken by him for his ad, I'll start this thread and use it to update the progress on the car as I go along. 1988 LX-i Hatch with 156,000 miles,some rust nothing that cant be repaired. it is a automatic and will more than likely stay that way and will stay stock in some sort of way. I commute 60 miles a day in traffic and driving a 5speed is no fun in that situation.

    Re: My Daily Hatch

    I got a little done today, Changed the plugs, air filter, cap and rotor. Still trying to get the car to idle right. I sprung a coolant leak from one of the hoses below the area where the EGR is, so I stopped for now till I pick up a replacement hose from work on Monday.
    Here's the old plugs and air filter







    New Timing Belt,Seals,Tensioner,Water Pump,Fuel Filter, Valve Cover Gasket Set and Mounts


    Some extra stuff I had laying around that I'll be installing into the hatch
    Arm Rest and Cupholders


    Eibach Sportline Springs and my modded pinch forks (no pic of those I have to find them




    8in Bazooka tube that I bought when I first got my sedan


    And these rims which used to be on my Sedan

    I knew you would join the hatch side one day . I always favored the white and black hatches! I think i have a center console (tape deck holder one) in that color if you are interested.
