this thread will be about both of my current civics.

my 2019 civic si coupe named Yūrei and my new to me 1998 civic coupe hx named sumi!

i havent owned many cars or really modded cars (just like my garage says im from the offroad world) so this is new to me. so this thread will show my progress with both cars and what i do with both of them! my si is my reliable daily while the Hx will be my weekend autocross and eventually track toy project!

only two rust spots on the whole car! and its only surface rust on the fender and one spot on the hood. Edit: have found one rust hole under the dead pedal inside the car which sucks but thankfully its nothing structural so it will be cut out and replaced.

https://honda-tech.com/forums/honda-civic-del-sol-1992-2000-1/civic-hx-headers-1397588/ saving this for later so go ahead and ignore it

the one big thing that sucks about the hx is the car is tuned with fuel economy in mind more then a standard civic so its headers exhaust and ecu are really restrictive so in theory if you swap those 3 things or swap the 2 and get a custom tune it should bump the car up on hp maybe

https://www.hondacivicforum.com/forum/ek-swaps-37/d16y5-block-d16y8-head-94191/

another interesting idea if i wish to keep the d series engine
