It's the one with the cattle prod on the back seat and the ankle straps in the headlining

Right, so pics and info then.
This is a joint venture between myself and @4thgenphil, currently residing at my barn because it needs a fair bit doing to get it drivable again, but that's not the long term plan (but shoosh, don't tell Phil's mrs!) ;)

Image

Second lude purchased from near Newport this year! But this one has a much brighter future planned than the last one.

It's another one that's been off the road for a number of years and was evicted from its garage home at short notice (sound familiar? :lol: ). This time a pre-facelift 2.0 16v 4ws with ALB

This one wasn't the same bargain as my one though, cost quite a bit more and needs crash damage repairing as well as the given major service. Also the brakes currently hardly work at all with a soft pedal (no apparent leaks so suspected knackered master cylinder)

Crash damage after colliding with a wall due to the brakes failing;
Image
Power steering cooler is fine, but the rad is blown, slam panel, lower cross member and upright all knackered. Also the bonnet was dead but the seller had a replacement, so Phil and I swapped that when we picked it up.

Image

Image
It's been much more damp under that bonnet than mine had. I guess stored in a concrete garage rather than a wood one?

The interior is absolutely mint!
Image
Image
Have to say, that fabric feels gorgeous... SO soft!

Image
Original stereo 8-)
Image

Paint is in fantastic condition on all the original panels, plus sexy full Style Auto bodykit, lowered and larger 15" alloys and 60 profile tyres
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Body is apparently in great condition
Image
But of course, the bottom of the arches and the sills are all hidden behind that kit, so who knows for sure...
Image

The kit was really well beautifully blended in when originally fitted, great looking job. It's been caught sometime recently and that's caused a tiny bit of lift where it folds back around the front arch on the drivers side;
Image
Image
But otherwise, all good! 8-

Even the corners of the sunroof rubber are in mint condition! :o
Image
Image

One of the things that made the price worth paying was the amount of spares that came with the car. Aside from the bonnet (already on the car);
Both doors and bootlid;
Image
Both wings and splashguards and a spare rad (from a manual so no good for keeping this as an auto);
Image
And boxes and bags of bits;
Image
Image
Also a boot full of trim, including 2 door panels and full set of exterior window trim;
Image
Image

Full set of 'Honda power' mats and seatbelt protectors (anyone know anything about these? Are they OEM or a known aftermarket brand of the time???)Image
And a full hard copy of the Honda service manual, which is very handy (saves having to take the laptop over every time!)
Image

Only unpacked one box today while I was at the barn;
Image

But these were interesting to rifle through...
Image
One is from this car, the other is from an H reg facelift, which is great, because that's what my other one is and I didn't have a full owners manual pack with it :10: (until now)
This car has a FHSH until 1993 :49k miles, then nothing on file since and now on 110k.

This was nice;
Image
How about a major service for £286 fixed price thebusofwoe? :D

This was new at the turn of unleaded coming in so special Honda brochure
Image
These models were apparently ok to run on unleaded with the stated change to ignition timing;
Image
(and btw the top models were ok to run on 2 star! :lol: who remembers going to the petrol pump and pressing the button to select which star rating of fuel you wanted??? :old: )
Image
So, lude ok to run on UL with no mods, but retard the ignition by 4^ and 'the only stipulation we make is to fill with 4 star every 4th tank' :? errr... I might struggle with that one!

Some more cool period Honda paperwork;
Image
Massive fold out dealer network map Image
And on the back;
Image
:rock: Full range

Yep, but don't underestimate the amount of work this one needs... And honestly have no idea how good the sills or arches are underneath all that :?

It is one heck of a sexy and cool motor though. Just couldn't let this one get away...
