I mean that tilts pretty much say it all. I got another boring car and it happens to be a small suv.
I lucky up and trades my NA Miata and picked up a 99 rd1 crv, it's fully load, RTAWD.
Bone stock high comp b20 with 164k(back in 7/14) on factory trans and motor. I didn't want to slam it so I'm going to lift it.....


Plans:
-Full motor over haul
-freshing up the front end
-2" lift with new struts, I might make spacers to give me more lift.
-black housing head lights
- make a bull bar with l.e.d pods
-20% tint
-small system
-1320 performance ls/b20 awd header
Maybe some more crap

It's my D.D some everything will be weekend projects with d.y.i

after doing a little soft roadimg I found my factory diff was making a weird sound when it locks.

Drain the diff and found this and was greeted with a love smell

Left: new OEM dual pump right: what came out
The person before me did know about changing the dual pump fluid.. I'm about 80% sure the clutch packs In the diff are hurt alone with the pump. I'll soon be looking for a new one or a rebuild kit.
Also I did my plugs......

Finally the good stuff.. I've had this laying around. But it's one of the major parts of my lift kit. I want to give CRVLLift Kit: Honda CRVLLift Kit and Components (http://www.rocky-road.com/honda-crv-lift-kit.html) a huge thanks! They sold me my old emu lift kit. It's a 1.5 and a 1.75 rear lift. It's a common way to lift the rd1/2, great ride all around with very little to no sag in the rear.

Hopefully I can get my crv to look better then this one.

The front bumper guard looks sick in the last picture.

Not sure if the diff may need to be rebuilt just yet, I've had personal experience with a 4WD element where the car was making a nasty whining noise at 60K miles. The diff. fluid was changed and the noise got softer until it eventually went away and never came back. Car is now at 220K miles.

The car looks like it would clean up well with a good paint/ headlight polish and some buffing of the plastic panels. How is the interior of the car?

Small stupid update. I came across a set of OEM floor mats for six dollars! But they were super nasty and I'm pretty sure had blood from the wreck. But they cleaned up well.
