If you know how to do it right... go for it. There's a guy in my town that drives a Honda S800 (or something of that size) that he shrunk down to about 6 feet. lic. plate = SHORTY

the rear door has to go. unless you're looking for a saturnesque/rx8esque discreet rear door. for loading your golf bag, or paint ball stuff, or whatever.

 

 

that would be awesome with that rear door line bondoed over:)

Mmmm,

so does this mean you'll lift it...

that's the biggest and bestest reason I can see for doin' the bob job, hatches suck on the autocross course, but they do love the submarine impressions...

 

I say do it up offroader style with the ea81 torsion bar and the 3.90 5spd d/r mated to the 2.2, first gen 1 2.2 hatch (i'd like to see it unhatched), but then you'll prolly have some frame width issues with the body lift and the motor combination.

 

if your going to keep the awd gearbox and go street ride, just slam it to the ground and leave the wheelbase alone.

 

my .02

 

best of luck,

The 2nd photoshop job really does the idea justice. It needs the longer coupe doors for sure.

There is a MINT one of those in red along the road from me - old lady driver, looks like it just came from the factory! Seriously - someone has really taken care of it, even the paint is perfect. I bet she could get a fiar bit of cash from the right person for it..
