RBWdriven 89 civic si
« on: November 26, 2013, 07:37:06 am »
Here is my white 89 si.  Yes still have it.  Yes still working on it.
http://eastcoastefcivics.com/index.php?topic=3228.0

Here is my 91civic wagon
http://eastcoastefcivics.com/index.php?topic=2751.0

Yes I have a 88 crx si.
No build thread on that one.

So I caught on Craigslis t a 88 civic si for $1300.  Texted the guy about it.  Come to find out it was an 89 civic si.  He only had 3 pictures but he told me it was worth the drive.  So I did the two hour drive.  Loaded the kids in the wagon and went to see it.  As we are talking about the hatch and saying yeah I know you have it listed for $1300.  Well Iíll take (fill in blank).  I did not pay $1300.





Basically in a nutshell it is a totally complete 89 civic si, two owner with 174k on the clock.  This still has the factory floormats, factory radio, factory speaker pods, factory lip and also rear mud guards.
I borrowed a friends dolly and went and got it.



This is how it is sitting in my driveway.



Things I know it needs:
Clean and wax
Painted trim
Two newer hubcaps (front ones cracked)
Motor work
Drivers headlight replaced due to crack
Windshiel d replaced due to two huge rock chips on the way home.
AC.

why thank you.  I can usually find the deals but lately have not been able to due to the sudden influx on people wanting EF's.

This one, no body knew about it.

I came up on a Craigslis t ad one day and went the next day.

welp as of the other night the engine is out.

engine on the ground.



I've got to pressure wash the engine bay.  P.O. lived on a dirt road.



I decided to take off the intake complete as one assembly to clean that as well before I removed the engine.
