Default The End...

The Civic was SOLD Today
with no Engine as is with the Auto Tranny Only for $650
Damn Interior was Clean and the Exterior was in Good Shape.

So Project Primo Investment is Done.


Recap,
Car was bought for $200
Did some work to that Engine - Head Gasket, Exhaust Valve, IM Gasket (do that math)

All Labor was done by my Cousin and I gave a Hand.

z6 was Burning too much oil, Swapped that Engine for a D16a (jdm 1.6).
Not too long after that, car was driven through a Big Puddle and developed a Slight Rod Knock. Couple Days Later, Rod Broke through the Block. Removed D16a and Engine had Warranty, no Engine available to Replace so Money was Refunded (Lucky)

Has been sitting for a few weeks now with Plans of Converting but just didn't bothered and Sold it.


Profit?
Not too much considering all the Damn Labor lol

So now he will buy another Civic (5spd) to mess with for Track

I know. It was just the 'Trying to make time for it' that really got to him I guess.

Impossible?? No. lol


The thing is the only days to put in work on it was Saturdays. Sometimes I worked on Sat. and be off on Tue. and he would would be off days I would work.

It's Time Consuming yes. We're junk yard junkies so going to different spots to find parts for the Conversion was the Problem.

At the End he just said 'screw it' and sold it.
