Good lord Chris you got ripped off man. You can get those CRX's way cheaper in southwest Virginia. I'm talking $1000 bucks or less all day. There is over 10 of them on there in the range of $250 – $1000 right now.
LOVE crx! Hopefully you mean it when you say your gonna do this build right. Also I vote to put the stock crx engine into the ef and sell it. That way you keep the swap mounts and get your money back plus some on the ef
I say keep up p the louvers after fixing them and the car up then sell it later for some cash if you dont like it over time. Im not a huge fan, love the concept but looks like add on, like a turtle shell. But all good. Not my whipp. Stoked on build thiigh!!
