    CRX mugen resurection

    I going to present my car
    it's a honda crx 84' (DX in Europe) but when I started to restore it...
    I found a lot of rust damage (classic on this car) ... :?
    so I decided to change the sens of my restoration..
    I had remembered a picture of a strange one CRX with stickers everywhere and the colors of Mugen
    I looked after a maximum of information on this car and I start work in April last year
    you can imagine ,this kind of project is not the easiest but I'm not at my first restoration (3 vw bettle,1 vw type3)

    the car when I found it..



    and this the project....

    Hello rsjapan!

    Great project and looking forward to updates.
    I tried sourcing a Mugen bodykit from Japan a few months back with no luck. Were you able to find one?

    If not, these guys do a 'reproduction' kit - http://www.housemanautosport.com/crx.htm

    Cheers :tu:

    Re: CRX mugen resurection

    after 1 month of adjustment of the front face
    it's very complicate because there is no plan, no supports,no arms, nothing for help to fit the body kit :?
    I must create all this for install it



    after I fitted a roll cage and welded a bar and created a frame for the fuel cell (RCI from Jeg's)


    and finally when all was welded.... I cutted the rear fenders :twisted:
