 Post subject: Dinosaur Rex: My 86 CRX Si
PostPosted: Tue Jan 11, 2011 9:34 am 
After getting this 86 CRX Si a few years ago and some tinkering here & there, especially from being a complete basketcase....Heres how it sits at the moment. The JDM fan bois and Herra frush crowd probably wont embrace it... Quite frankly I dont really care :mrgreen: , as I built it for my enjoyment and wasnt trying to be trendy with it anyway. The only thing left to do is more suspension work and I may get bigger brakes so I can start autocrossing and doing some HPDE soon.

Lovely CRX. :tu: Not a fan of the Kosei Snipers but that's just a personal thing - you did a fantastic job on the build.

Thanks. The Snipers look similar, but the wheels are actually Kosei Grand Infest D5s. Im actually looking for a new set of wheels, since tax season is right around the corner.....

It went through a few phases, but I finally decided on this. Yeah I cant believe these are at or around 25 already!

Lots of cool oldschool rims are coming back. The Rota Hayashi Street copies or the Enkei J-speeds (especially with red-painted centers) would look incredible on that car. Great wheels never go out of style. 8)
