EF7 Honda CRX #7 : bye-bye rust

This entry is part 7 of 41 in the series TrackDays EF7 HONDA CRX

In 1989, steel sheets quality and their treatments were good but not as good as they are today. And if you own a civic chassis, you know were rust is mainly located …

It’s an enemy you have – or will have – to face if you own old cars. In the civic situation, there are aftermarket parts available to replace a rear rusty fender. But it’s not a complete part, only the bottom section of the arch.

After a lot of reflexion and discussion with my coachbuilder we decided to swap the old left fender by a brand new Honda one. A few phone calls later, we finally found one in a european Honda dealership (not in France as the part was out of stock).

Thank you Pascal for the fantastic job done !

The old fender is removed using the factory assembly weld spots. It’s also a good opportunity to check the rest of the body for rust. Looks good except on 2 small places around the windshield (this will be fixed later when installing my homemade carbon sunroof plug).

Tadaaa !!
