I'm looking for a JDM CRX shell. i'll take the car if needed but i would rather just have the shell. as long as its right hand drive. if anyone knows where to look for these and how much they cost that would be a big help. thanks.

I know someone that can get one imported if not he'll sell you a clip so you can do the RHD conversion or he can do it for you....... I dont think anyone has a true JDM crx layin around so your best bet would be to do the RHD conversion. plus if you do the conversion it will still be legal as an american car.

Yeah but doing a RHD conversion yourself is risky. You risk sacrificing the integrity of the car....if you wanna do the conversion I seriously suggest you find a shop that has EXTENSIVE experience doing something like this. It can be done if you have the entire front clip(which I have) but I just dont think its worth it. There is always that "what if" factor ....what if something isnt cut right? What if something doesnt line up? What if it ruins the car beyond repair? Its a one time shot kinda thing.....

imo, a rhd conversion is POINTLESS for the amount of money you'll be spending. then again, i like going fast and would MUCH RATHER spend that money on building a motor.

JesseCRX = Phan fanboy :)

Phan, where would you recommend me to buy JDM folding mirrors?? You obviously know where to get JDM parts so that's why I am asking you for a safe reliable source. I'd go to Hmotors but Steve is always hella busy to stop and find parts for me.

my friend randy might be selling a set of his...

he's upped his collection to: ef8, da6, ef9; all real rhd. you guys may have seen his post on h-t. regardless, he's got vision mirrors on the cr-x and might be doing the same to the ef9, so i'll see if he's willing to sell a set. i still have my set, too, which i'm thinking about selling. :)
