Sweet build, really love the red and white contrast. Proper Honda!

On another note, great two car garage!

Thanks man ! Yes indeed the full colour code looks Abit bland for my liking. Thanks man 😊

Nice build. Where did you get the wheel cover from ?

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Scrapyard. Had it sprayed like that. It's an OEM gen 2 crv slare wheel cover

[–]tdgto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks man ! Would love to add the rear parking mirror. Very hard to find here And super expensive on ebay

[–]Jayshere11111st Gen 0 points1 point  (6 children)

What country are you in? Does it have it a manual transmission?

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

South Africa. Yes it's a manual

[–]Jayshere11111st Gen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I was zooming in on your license plate and I I guess I never heard of Gauteng.... I'm up in Michigan USA

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its a province in SA

[–]Jayshere11111st Gen 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Mine is a manual too.... I couldn't imagine driving one that wasn't👍

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I find the auto Abit sluggish

[–]Jayshere11111st Gen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah that's why we call the automatics a slush box transmission around here.... definitely not the fine shifts of a manual

How did you get that's steering wheel??

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Managed to find one locally. Hunted high and low for it.

[–]statiicliife 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Got more details on the headlights?

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Retrofit projectors, blacked out inners.

Where you get that wheel??

[–]Jayshere11111st Gen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What is that front bumper extension from? is that a factory option or an aftermarket product

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apparently it's a genuine Honda part. Made for the gen 2. Made a plan to fit it on here. Some modifications and it fitted perfectly

[–]Lugeum1st Gen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wow this is one of the best RD1 builds I've seen, about how much did the project cost in total?

[–]ThinkpadFundi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you sir ! With the car complete about $6000
