    apache07x new car

    Well guys after looking around some and finding what I really want, I guess I will be doing a B20A build on an 88 LXi Hatch instead of my 87 4 door. I just couldn't get motivated on the 4 door. Loved the car and have done a lot of work to it but time to wrap it up by finishing the paint and body on it and finding anew home for her and get started on my new project below. When I do get ready to part ways with the 87 I'll be sure to put it up here first so I know it'll go to a good home.

    I don't think I've ever seen a maroon hatchback in real life and the only other one I remember seeing was Bitesize's. Thats nice!

    Re: apache07x new car

    Thanks guys. Put the tires and rims off of my 87 on it already. Makes it look a lot different and definitely makes it ride better than those basketball's it had on it. I'll post a pic later.

    Re: apache07x new car

    Here's with better tires and rims. That's my opinion at least.

    No louvers Guy. Don't think I'll put them on it either. Had a Mustang once with them and it was hard to see out of.

    I love them, always use side mirrors myself. I remember one night before I got them a tallboy pickup got on my tail and it was quite uncomfortable, everyone in the car was lit up like a sears portrait studio lol i couldn't see a dang thing.

    Very nice hatch there! Those wheels look great on it. The finish on the car looks very good. Is that the original paint finish? If so, the exterior has obviously been taken good care of.

    the car definitely looks good but i'm not sure how some of you are commenting on how clean the exterior is when the pictures are the size of a quarter...

    Click on the picture in his post; it will open in a larger view. And, if you click on that one, it will enlarge even more.

    I was told it is original paint it was garage kept it's first 23 years. The guy I got it from said the original owner had it in his garage 8 years with a broken timing belt and was going to call the junkyard to come haul it off...he asked how much and the guy gave it to him.

    Re: apache07x new car

    Got a new stereo system in it and fixed some minor things, brakes, upper control arms and a strut. Next is lowering springs and a cv boot. Found what trim pieces were loose when I put the system in it and it made them rattle lol

    Cool. I'm probably going to need a 5 speed sooner or later it's got the 5th gear whine going on but it's not too bad yet and even better now since I put oil in it instead of ATF.

    Lowered her down 2 1/2" this weekend. Here's a couple pics of that and one of my ridiculous system. That's way too loud for this little car lol

    Looks good, I wouldn't want an exposed box my self, but you should be able to turn it down to match the other speaker volume?
    It doesn't look 2.5 drop really in the pic but does look lower and ok.
