More pics on the wrap.

If you gonna do the boot, may as well the roof and bonnet to keep with the flow/look of it.

Its a growing thing vinyl wrap and looks interesting.

Yeah, the vinyl wrapping culture is growing and growing.
It's just doing it right, that's all.
This was my first attempt, and of course it was never going to be perfect, but it looks a lot better than the old peeling s**t boot I had before.

just had a quick look on carsales, and dunno if its a typo or not but the old CRX's weigh 800kg's with a 117kw engine.......... which makes for a better power to weight than a new falcon :|

are they really that quick?....... if so i might just buy one and rice the f**k out of it, for something different

CRX's go very hard, but unfortunately I just didn't like the look of them.

Try and find a CRX for sale that has not been thrashed. 100% of all surviving CRX's have been thrashed. Its not a question, its a certainty. Still, whats the fuel cost like on the prelube? bit cheaper to run than the old coon?

Yeah, my goodness!
The fuel economy is great, coming from a cammed 4.0L i6.
From a full tank, Ive done 190km so far, and Ive only dropped 3 notches on the guage (there are about 12 or so)

It's quite different to the EL Ghia, but it's starting to grow on me.

When I saw the engine pic, I was like "Oh yeah, Honda 4 bangers run backwards."

Anti-clockwise rather than clockwise. That's why the engine is on the passenger side. The opposite side to most transverse FWD cars.

Some Honda Forum wrote:
Pre-2000 Honda engines are one of the oddballs in the engine world, spinning CCW when looking at the front, CW when looking at the rear. Since 2000, the K-series engine started going into several Honda models, which rotates clockwise like most engines.

So the answer is, B-series engines rotate the opposite direction from 4AG (and all other) Toyota engines and transmissions.

Lol, scummy is the perfect way to describe it.
Getting it fixed up sometime in the new year.
