They probably did have a similar one. We never got the earler integras before the R so we never had the engines they put in them. These cars had a very basic set of oem decals that left a lot of things up to you to find out.

After about ten years and roughly 50k km I've sold the gray sedan. So from this point on the topic will be less confusing and concentrate on the dohc only. I got a more than fair offer it was time to be someone else's problem. Some 18 year old drove an hour to see it and off it went. It's been about ten years since I last managed to sell a car. :D

Only the hatch remains, but It'll not see winter use even in this situation.

I started work on that spare front end filler panel I talked about. Took apart the front end and the panel in question.
It's the filler under the lights and above the bumper. The noticeable bend is just off the center on the drivers side. I also have a spare hood that I will use. How though that'll be seen when I get around to it.


Taken apart. Next up will be a sanding, primer then eventually paint. I have a few things I need to paint when I set up the "booth" in to the garage so I'll not set it up just for one piece alone.

I did some sanding on the new filler panel, tried it on to see how it fits and it's way better. While I was at it I figured I'd remove a black trim piece and fix some paint damage on the front of the hood. A drunkard dropped a beer can some time ago on the front edge and that caused some damage. Fitting time to take care of that too.

The filler is not bolted up in the picture. It's not sitting exactly as tight as it will when it's actually installed.
