Don't wash anything! In fact, after it's running, find a puddle and drive through it. The patina in the engine bay alone is perfect.

Great looking 142, do you have a build thread on it somewhere?

No not a great looking 142!

This is a perfect lokking 142 first series in my mind

original front fenders, yeah!

I would like to have 142 too.

Best regards Kay, owner of a 144 first series too, missing the right wings, and of a 1973 modell (best grill/front end in my mind) 144, bad conditon and lifted, and a rhd Amazon, not on road and a lot to do, too much to get this next year on the road again, sniff

I dont know, they are shortened stock springs. Way to soft, i can turn without rubbing the fenders when i am alone in the car but with more people in it or if the road is bumpy the tires rubs the fenders when i turn

Those wheels on the 142 fit the car perfectly. Are those the V70 steelies? Or others, what tire size?

It is actually a lot of space under the exhaust manifolds and i had the dp´s in mind when i made the engine mounts to save some space but the dp´s are 3.5" inch and i will try to run dual 3.5" all the way to the rear bumper. It´s going to be really tight on the drivers side so i will have to move the thing where the brake lines are connected and maybe notch the frame a little. Will add pictures later, the downpipes will be a little special

It feels good to write some english, haven´t done much of that since school...15+ years ago

Had this Amazon last year(same wheels as the 142), before i bought the 142. Made a cheap turbo build with the Stromberg. 14 psi Sidepipes on both sides, connected to the downpipe. Civic lowering springs from ebay

First update in a very long time. Haven´t worked on the car due to some health issues and will not be working on it so much in the near future. But i had to do something on it so i made some exhaust:



And then it was time for the first time on the two-step(in my imagination) ;)
