This covers swapping foam and the cover from an 88-89 over to the frame of a 90-91 civic wagon. This is for the front seats, and can also apply to same year swaps. Also it might just come in handy for taking the seat apart if you’re going to be repairing the foam. The grossness […]
So the old alternator was giving up the ghost. Flickering battery light when coming to a stop and a horrendous noise that sounded of a chorus comprised of a thousand strangled hamsters.
All right, getting my welder hooked up. Jumping right in to my first little project. Exhaust.
In making this thing not such a wallowing hippo on the road I’ve decided to take on the installation. This is the first time I’ve dug into this, and found that it wasn’t too terrible of an undertaking. Though that is a reason I bought an easy to work on Civic. On with the show.

The top tabs of my gauge bezel were completely destroyed. I picked up some marine grade epoxy from the Home Depot and filled the broken out bits in. Then drilled some new holes. It's working great. You can use some tape or foil as a backing for the epoxy while it sets. The marine grade […]
Do you know when your fuel filter was changed last? If the answer is no, change the damn thing. I should have done this as soon as I bought the wagon, but check this out… Grosssssss! That's what came out of the filter.
