Nice old civic! I want to ask a question though, how hard is it to source parts for it? I recently came across an '87 base hatch for $600, the interior is all there and looks to be in amazing condition. Problem is though, the rear quarters are rusting around the wheels, and its missing a rear bumper.

It depends on where you live. I only can speak for europe. Here it's quite hard to find parts...
I think in the US there are much more parts available.

That's a remarkably clean car you started with. Can't wait to see it finished. Will you be leaving it the same colour?

It has a lot of rust at the underbody when I bought it. But was low milage 8)

I'll switch the color to Astral Blue metallic B31M. It's a little darker than the current blue and a color that was available on the JDM Civic Si E-AT.
