Nice work so far!

Good looking restore :thumbs: What is under the cover ??

My guess is the car is a 2004-5 Honda Civic Si hatchback.

the deck was beyond repair so i'm building a new one. i cut the wheel brackets off to use as patterns and had new ones made from 1/8" steel so they won't bend as easily.DSC00302.jpgDSC00303.jpg

thanks ray, no luck yet on the cap. a buddy at work thinks the cap on his harley might work, also checking into a cap from a '67 or '68 camaro and the early 50's chevy pickups. sooner or later i'll find something. the hunt is half the fun. denny.

      WTB 701 Large Right-Side Belt Guard with original hardware, No Rust-through holes but surface color and patina would fit the "aged" look of my old gal just perfect.

      Picked this up yesterday after a long days ride.  I'm  going to need to see Terry for the correct stickers though.  Left the house at 6:00am and returned at 11:45pm,  almost an 18 hour ride.  I think it was worth it though.  Looks to be all original except the stickers and the front tires.  You don't find these to often and almost never with an unbroken dash plate that's original.  She runs great, but I'm finding it hard to get my motor running this morning after that trip.

      This is a possible score, about 300 miles to get it tho but the price is right. Take a look at the pics and see if you guys see anything out of place.

      Runs and drives. Needs new battery. Older restoration. Paint job and body work wasn't done by a professional by any means but motor and tranny are strong! Snow blower works great! I bought it to restore but I found a 1054 that I like better. Mower deck is rough but is correct for the 701 just like the double pulleys and hood. Text 269-509-1901
