It had a 998cc but now ill go VTEC.
13 x7 tires not identified yet.
Paint it black.
Custom dash maybe!

So at this time we are welding and finishing the rear. The car has recieved bracing between the doors cause we will be cutting out the door steps and replacing sills and floor panels. Once thats done Ill by a subframe and get her back on wheels before the engine is slapped on followed by a new round nose then send it to the painter. Ill drive this again I say in about two years.

Peace

I can imagine how this car might look when it's done, I can even imagine exactly what it would be like to drive.

Check out MiniMike's build.

Yes.

Rob those are some great pics you have up on your site. Your project is inspiring as well. Really looks like you have no rust at all!

there was loads of rust! I replaced the floors, boot floor, center beam and the doors. I stripped the car, had it acid dipped and did the body work after that.

I looked at buying your car in the spring!

If you want to meet up and discuss group ordering of parts or anything, send me a PM. I'm in the market for rims/tires soon and I think we could save some shipping cost with a pallet.

Rob your right. Its a great idea however at this time my priority is to finish replacing floors. Then clean the rear subframe and save cash for the MTB. So I think Im about 6 months behind you until the next unforseen obstacle.

Keep me in the loop and I wouldnt mind working with you.

Best.

Thanks TREV0006,

At this time xmas has me slowed down. I think I can finish the sills and door steps before the new year. Then Ill sand blast the boot, engine compartment and interior. Apply POR15 and just let her sit. Once thats done Ill fix the rear subframe and replace what needs to be replaced and save up money for the MTB subframe. Id like to see her on wheels by the summer with an engine installed about this time next year!

We will see.

My buddy works at a honda dealership and just mentioned to me they have a integra for sale at $500! 200k on the engine with good compression but its a B18b1 at 142hp. Hopefully this works out and we will keep you posted.

Hey guys,

So Im just waiting for money to add up here and plus I dont have heat in the garage.

Who here has built the ALLSPEED frame into their mini? Im thinking of going this route instead of the minitec due to additional savings in costs.

Let me know

hi there, i have a similer frame but i think they are all the same thing. the change is do they use standerd mini dounuts or coil overs, the integra honda sounds cool as long as its a good one, price is ok, but its not lots of money so as long as it runs nice in the car it will be something to build your mini around, good luck,

Thanks. I just got an email back from allspeed and the consensus is that at $1100 CDN for the frame minus other little add ons plus estimated $400 dollars shipping by sea to port not including my provincial taxes and customs fees will run close to the minitec subframe of $2300.

The time to get this by sea as well is crazy! So I think Ill get mini tec to ship their frame to my sister who lives in D.C. and Ill just drive there and pick it up to save on the customs fees! and shipping. More to follow.
