    A lot work gone into this one Bob. This thread doesnt justify it.

    that looks awesome mate! i really need to get myself a CR-X project to build!

    i was so very tempted at 1 point to fork out for a set of those wheels in bronze, out of interest how light are they??? freakin clean CR-X mate :Wink:
  12. bobcrx Junior Member ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    extremely light and i got them for an exceedingly good price..

    the next projects are both going onto the back burner, the project CR-X is going to be extremely long term, but very worth it, the other just a sweet daily Civic.

    fun times.
