Heres the story: My tires on my wheels need replacement. Last time it cost me $400 with a buy 3 get 1 free. This time im much poorer. So i realized that i could fix everything on the car, get new winter tires, and have some spare parts if i buy a parts car. So the search began, three weeks later i found an 88 LXI 5 speed for $300. Body exterior and interior are in bad shape, engine, transmission, and FI parts are all in good condition. Also my car just rolled over 200,000, so to celebrate that, i'm giving it an upgrade.
I will be converting from carb to fi, fixing rear brake issue i have had for the past 100k miles, converting the a/c and heater controls, sway bars, auto to 5 speed, refinishing honda wheels for winter use, and other miscellaneous parts.
Pics of the parts car.
Wheels in good shape, really just need cleaning, but i will refinish them.
5 speed and fancy power window buttons.
So today i got both cars in the garage and started taking body parts off the parts car.
