Well, Jeff came over today and we were super productive.  The Civic is mostly stripped.  I still need to pull the gas tank out and some of the wiring running to the rear of the car.  My plan is to lay out all the wiring we've taken from the Civic, diet the harness so it's just what's needed for the engine, cluster, and fuel system, and then do the opposite for the Insight (diet the harness so it just runs HVAC, radio, power accessories, lights).  Then I can combine them.

Here is the front end of the Civic - the kid who owned it hit a tree.

After a little bit of time with the sawzall, angle grinder, and unbolting a bunch of stuff, we pulled the whole front subframe out.  After working on my K20 Civic, Jeff's K20 Integra and Paul's K20 GTI, the wiring is super familiar.

I've got a lot of cleaning to do.  I may use the Civic seats as well - the Insight ones are terrible.  If I use the Civic seats, I'll have Danielle re-cover them.

So the Civic is sitting without a front end or interior now.  I've gotta find a way to move it around without front suspension.

If anyone needs Civic parts, let me know!

Well, the motor is out.  So is the dash.  Planning on starting to strip the Civic tomorrow.

Also, check out this's like 1.5"

I'll have to figure out if I want to keep ABS or not.  I definitely want AC, which means I have to either remove or relocate the ABS pump.  I'm tempted to delete it because the engine bay is like a rat's nest of brake lines.  Removing it will greatly simplify things.

Got tired of messing with the wiring on the Birkin, so I decided to spend a few hours taking the Insight apart.  I pulled the front end apart and removed all the stuff from the underside.  The car is from upstate NY and a lot of the fasteners are rusty.  I'll probably end up replacing the brake lines, as well.  Thankfully, the rest of the car is clean - aluminum is nice.

Should be ready to pull the axles and the motor out next.

Well it's turned out to be an interesting weekend for sure; Tyrel did well in 1st practice, was all set to go out for practice 2 and his motor seized up, so we had to swap motors off of my kart...and then after that, mother nature decided to step in and call it a day for us all, lol.

Tyrel ended the weekend with a strong performance. The pre-final was his first time on track after the engine change, so we weren't 100% sure of what we had, but we got things together for the final race. Tyrel was having some nice battles for 9th and 10th position before finally finishing 10th for his first race back here in the Briggs Sr Division at GoPro Motorplex this year.

Here's the footage from the Final;

No not really.
He is looking to put a big block back in it and get it back on the track.

The best part about the sale is he loves the car as I do.

Great course as always, we fixed a few issues and found some new ones. Our new issue is losing power after the sweeper, hopefully we can sort this beast out with all of the practice events coming up.
