My 93 hb was stripped. All I had was an intake, exhaust, and coilovers. Those [email protected]#$%$s put screws through my roof and hood. How do I go about fixing those holes? I need new rotors, exhaust, brake pads, springs, and a lot of other things. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

fill in the holes with bondo, or a similar product, then paint over them. as for the parts, the cheapest replacements can probably be found at a salvage yard. if you don't know of any near you, go to a honda dealer and ask.... if you know someone at the dealership you can also get a discount on the parts.
sorry to hear about your car man. hope everything goes well gettin it back together.

is your insurance company helping you cover your losses?

if they just striped the exhaust, intake, and coilovers, then you're luckier then most....you still have your engine, and its still in driving condition.

depending on how important that car is, you can go back to stock form....get the exhaust and intake from the junk yard. instead of coilovers, put your stock springs back on...

If the holes aren't too large I wouldn't recommend bondo, small holes can be fixed by welding in filler metal almost like soldering with steel. Then grind it to match the panel just like you would with bondo.

I recommend Ebay too, you can find anything there. Stock or aftermarket shocks, all kinds of springs or coilovers, the intake pipes/filters are only like $40 for a generic brand. Not the best but it'll get you back on the road and it's not stock at least.

Sorry to hear this happened, I know how it feels. I had insurance and still lost big money.

Hey, if your a big enough jerk to steal a car and strip it, what's so out-of-the-ordinary to vandalize it in the process?

When my 94 hatch got stolen, they weren't content to just strip it either, they put old tires on it and drove it around till they crashed it, then they keyed up the paint and did other stuff. So my insurance just totalled it.
