Its a one owner, hens the (intactness), not sure if that's in the dictionary lol. Lots and lots of miles but the family was a great maintenance provider. I pulled the oil pan and valve cover and it was clean.
i c u are a lot like me in keeping up ur car too, nice work on ur 09.
I'm old for the average age here but love a good restoration. I sold a 93 hatch and bought this jewel with the money.
Thanks I'll keep up with that bad A$$ GE of yours ��

12/3/18:
re oiled the leather with Skidmore's leather cream.
replaced the t-stat and did a little un seen detailing on the engine.
Took her out for a 45 min. ride and the needle stayed put.
Power and comfort shweet!
Way different ride than the yellow 94 Integra LS R.
getting the suspension from RCA, its back ordered but should be her in 2 weeks.
2 new toyo tires are here, the Firestone tires are new but they're Firestones. Toyos all 4 corners.
upper adjustable camber kit/ control arms are in and the rear camber kit/arms.
top hats are here, when its all installed it'll be a different car.

nice! have you considered a front lip? feels like it needs a lil something up front to balance the look.

i really like the taillights...probably one of the first upgrades i would have made too.

Going with Tein coil-overs and drop this lil girl down about 2", front and rear adjustable arms to set the camber with a fresh set of Toyos this will greatly improve the ride .
U tube camber & toe
: ^ )
Type R side skirts (like the ones that are one my 94) and the Type R rear bumper extensions, and the mud flaps are outta here.

Recondition front bumper by wet sanding and buffing, lets see what can be done with this paint.
It was a North Carolina car with dead bug guts, and if you know car finishes, well it ain't purddy. With 2500 wet paper and medium compound it looks 100% better!
Hard to see with this ghetto phone, but up close its a big difference.

Before



After


2 hours 1/4 of the bumper and 1 headlight.

found a supplier that had new hardware for the battery tray, bolts. Got them at lunchtime and after work installed the tray and cleaned up the fw with turtle wax,scratch out, great for hand polishing. Installed the battery, and hold down, looks shweet! The engine compartment is just looking better, basmiles here. Tires, clean up the rims, new suspension holy moly it'll be a different car.
