Okay, went to see the first 'stock' car at the weekend. It has been sitting outside for a little while clearly and could do with a good clean up, but is otherwise in fair condition. As is often the case, and I really do not understand this, no effort has been made to tidy it up prior to viewing. A detail, a vacuum, a wash and wax and some new floor mats would transform this car.

Anyhow! The car is completely stock. NOTHING has been modified, deleted or added. No apparent rust anywhere except surface rust on the hood hinges and and exhaust manifold etc but needs to go on a lift to check the under body. It is a 1990.

Car is throwing a CEL which the seller claims is a dud oil sensor (doesn't know which) I presume that will be the stock idiot light sensor but I have doubts as the idiot sensor in my car is unscrewed and it just throws the idiot light not the CEL. Also has a leaking fuel filler hose but just the rubber U-bend (filler pipe is again rustless) so that is a cheap fix.

Only drove it around the parking lot, but idled, drove fine. Needs a road test to check brakes, clutch gears etc which I should be doing next week. And it cannot be registered until May.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!

Well KC is going to hate me but I'm getting the stock one. Took it for a test drive at the weekend and I could not fault it on anything. It is as clean as a whistle save for the tiniest bits of surface rust at the hood hinges. Interior is spotless with just that familiar bulging of the centre console around the A/C unit. Drives perfect, idles like a dream!

I don't care if it is ugly at present. Cosmetically it won't stay stock for long but I have no plans for performance mods, I just want to keep it reliable.

Due to the new Environmental Protection laws, newly imported 6G VR4s can no longer be registered in Hong Kong until they are over 20 years old. So this car won't be eligible to be registered until around mid May. The seller is really cool though and says after I pay a deposit I can take the car and stick it in to have work done on it in the interim.

Car currently looks like this:-





Future mods are based purely on stuff I have lying around from the other build and don't want to waste: -

JDM Hood (hood will need a respray so I may respray bumpers and side claddings to match)
New Grille (probably Kevin's for this car)
5-lug swap and EVO 8 wheels in black



3KGT front brakes.
Momo wheel



KCs Hybrid Headlamps




GTS 32 rear wing like this one




Rear Window Sun Visor,
Rain guards on side windows
Hi amp alternator
Koyo Evo III radiator
Strut Braces
Refurbished JDM ECU

I might pull the ABS but I really am not sure on that yet.

I also want to black out the JDM Fogs, like these:-
