Well Figured Id do some work today.

Decided to take two weeks off for Xmas so I decided to work on Daisy.

Technical ly this is Daisy V3.  My first was a 86 civic dx, my next was a 89 civic si that we cut apart due to rust.

So meet Daisy V3.

This is how I picked it up. 







This is the hood.



This is how the rear looks



Passenger side



Here is the interior













By the time Im done it will have an EF dash back in and be back to stock EF.

The hood is staying.

The things so far Ive found need addressin g:
Replace interior cabin harness
Replace main harness
Replace EG dash with EF dash
Replace EG/ EF combinati on harness with EF harness
Replace Antenna
Replace EG dash brackets
Replace EG heater with EF heater
Replace the driver side mount (the one that is welded in)
Paint the engine bay
Replace front traction mount.  Needs serious attention
Rewire fuel filter since it is just sitting in there.  (Past Owner removed his due to running integra one and also running C16 gas)
Add engine and driveline .
Add exhaust
Possibly add rear disc swap.

Here is what it looked like as of an hour ago.

blue hatch is sitting outside.

Killiams bday/ xmas present is sitting in the garage right now.

He is under the firm impressio n that the big thing under the tarp is automotiv e parts.

Yep the hood is diffferen t.  Gives it character .  It does not matter to me.

I've got a cf zc hood and a steel hood so I'm good.
