Face lift

07-23-2007, 10:36 PM
I am the recent proud owner of a 1984 CRX 1.5L. It is missing both fenders, the front bumper, the headlights, and the tailights. I can get the fenders, bumper, and headlamps off of a 95 CRX. I was wondering if they would be a direct (or semi-direct) bolt in or do I have to modify a lot of things to get it to work?

I'm gonna assume you mean an 85 crx and not a 95 and everything should be the same. Honda usually waits at least two years for mid-generation facelifts

Actually I meant 95 civic. Sorry new to the Honda world. I realized it after I shut my pc off.

Oh, 95 Civic is a different story. The 5G civic is wider and longer than your rex so the bumper would certainly need cutting and the fenders most likely need shortening and molding to fit the body. The headlights don't bolt up at the same spots and are rounded instead of the box shape from the crx lights so the frame behind the lights might get in the way. None of this is impossible and there are many competent shops that can do it and make it look good but its gonna tax your pocket
