    Not exactly, I'm trying to figure out which clips I need to attach the rain drip molding since when I took them off the clips broke. I believe there are a few of them I need, I found two. Not too worried about it right now. I finally got around to taking off the panels and bumper off of the car and this last dude had it wired shut, nails and screws all over the place holding the panels together making it a pain to get them off. Here are a few shots of the damage. Sorry for all the photos.

    I was looking around and finally came across something that could be a good route to go. I haven't looked much into it, but it looks like I can get this part and have someone weld it together for me. Something like what this guy did.

    I had an issue with the fuel gauge being stuck on F. I got a float/sending unit from the junk yard and I have my old one. The cluster was the issue and now the fuel gauge works and the float works from the junkyard, but tomorrow I'll see if my other one works. I put in white LED's, but I must of pushed the speedometer stick below the stopper so I gotta pull it out again tomorrow. A new problem now is the H and C gauge, when I start the car it goes straight to H and when I turn it off, it falls to E. Is it messed up or can that be fixed?

    Turns out it was the gauge, again... Back to the junkyard for the third day in a row.

    Ordered a cluster from someone in Florida. I went to three junk yards and just a bunch of automatics and the only manuals had just the temp gauge. My EG passed the Smog Check, so I'm happy about that since I really wasn't sure if it would or not. I fixed the blown fuse for the dome light and replaced the bulb. Slow progress, but once I get it registered and tagged I should be getting around to doing more to it.

    Finally got around to removing the airbags, the passenger side was a PITA with those bolts! Vacuumed it and cleaned the door jams everything visible to the eye when opening a door. At least she clean, but the interior is stained and looks like crap.

    Went to the junkyard today and finally picked up an OEM radiator core support and the front right wheelhouse. For the wheelhouse one of the OEM sites wanted $80+ for the part and likely paid shipping. I got that same part for $4.33 USD, so cheap! I still have to break the spot welds on everything as I just went and hacked the parts off. I got the support from a 95 Coupe Canadian model, mine is JDM. From what I have read it should fit. The support is is great condition so I'm happy about that. $60 for both the support and reinforcement bar.

    Edit: My 9th was dropped off to the Dealer for paint on the 8th and they estimated 4 weeks for the work which they said was Right Fender, Hood, Roof and Trunk.

    I finally got my power locks to work on my EG! However, when I put the alarm wires on the power lock wires nothing happens when I press the unlock/lock button and the alarm lock and unlock doesn't work either. Not so sure what that could be. Closer to getting all the features working.

    Your doing some serious work to this car, how much is all this costing you? Kind of makes me think of my SRT-4-i have a whole brief case full of mods on it-some one of a kind hand made parts too. Not going to do that to the Honda si however-its a daily driver type car-only stuff that would make it better like sporty summer tires and Escort radar detector for Honda. here they use almost all KA band perfect for the escort. KA instant on a tricky radar however-any use at all and they are instantly tracked:police:

    I don't know about serious work, but whatever I can get away with for the time being. I don't know much about the SRT-4, but I'm sure it was a beautiful car! As far as costs I picked up the core support and bump bar for $60 as the junk yard and then for the wheelhouse piece I paid $5 (OEM it was going for $90, I got it OEM for $5). I plan to bring this car to stock %100 and then build it. It was abused and I want to bring light back to it and make sure everything functions as it should the day it came from factory. The core support is really jacking things up for me and no local shops will bother with doing the work so I'm looking into ways of going about that.

    Speaking of functionality, I fix the power locks %100 and they work with the alarm now. Sweet! Oh, I also picked up a OEM hood for the junkyard, it isn't pretty, but hey it is straight! I know the front end is all sorts of screwed up, but it will get fixed eventually.

    the srt-4 is still a nice car, it just isn't good on bad roads which is all I got here. The stock Honda can handle the rough roads.:unicorn:

    You can always upgrade your suspension? I'm sure that should help a bit at the very least.

    Srt-4 is upgraded, koni shocks, sport lowering springs, huge sway bars. I don't want to mess with it any more. :squirrel: Time to move on, Elmo can take over.:pat:

    I don't know much about suspension, but what about the dampers? I believe that how you spell it? I'm not sure I would give up on a car just because of that though. There's gotta be something out there man, just keep looking. I think I saw your car around the forums somewhere, it looks good. Keep with it.

    As Scotty kilmer said time to move on to something else, best time to sell is when the car isn't broken!:joke: I got the best DD car there is a Honda, don't want to drive srt-4 into the ground. Elmo the teenager would love to have it:rotfl:

    Well, a broken car certainly wouldn't sell as well so you're right there! More money to throw at your daily. :thumbsup:

    I need to find a reason to use more of these emojis. Seriously, these are great! :brock:
