what are you doing with the yeller one?
The yeller one is pretty much gutted...

I'm pulling the motor and maybe a few other things & im calling someone to take it away to a junkyard.

I'm partial to bronze wheels.

Black on black exterior is kinda played out aropund where I live but it is played out for a reason, because it looks badass. I'm still partial to bronze or gunmetal with a chrome lip...
Very true with the badass'd'ness... i can vouch.

My other ride:

Im not gonna lie though... I was thinking about the black/gunmetal w/ the chrome lip. Ive seen a few crazy looking blacked out cars like that.

we'll see though.

First i need to select a brand/style wheel i really like.

Cant go wrong with rotas... even though they are "played out" as everyone says.

hahah gotcha...

no, but seriously I'm picking it up tomarrow.

Driving all the way from here.. Central Pa & going about 4 hours...& half way through ohio to meet the kid in Akron. He's driving 4 hours from his place in cincinnatti to help me out.

The car is a 91 Si 4ws & is black in color

Paying: $2500 air temperature, soft, cash. (opposite of cold hard ... ha ha.....yeah w/e)

Immediatly upon returning home i will be ripping out the (tan/brown) interior and swapping it to Black. Installing my Integra intake setup.. and possibly a few other small things. i.e. my accord rear lip.

I will have a bunch of pictures as soon as i return home around

So check back and let the good times begin.
If its tan interior how mush for interior bits?

I guess you're putting an 88/89 black interior into the car?

The 90/91 door panels have the removable centerpeice. The power lock switch is held in with a metal sort of spring. All you need to do with your new panels is use a dremel and cut a rectangle hole that the switch will fit through. Don't worry about being perfectly straight or smooth, cause the front of the switch will cover everything.
It'll look and fit like factory when you're done.

Here's the pics I did putting in a black '90 interior into my tan interior '89:

Note that the 88/89 PDL buttons were horizontal and the 90/91s were vertical. I put it in the vertical position, much nicer looking. You can tell cause the word "lock" on mine is sideways.

I did have to modify the metal retainer clip a bit like you can see in the 2nd pic, I just bent the tabs back. And in the 3rd pic it's still not sitting totally flush, I took that pic before I was done.

Car looks clean. :emthup: What drop does it have?
