Mar 5, 2005 update to the Honda Civic SI project car

On the Scales

Here’s a breakdown of the components that we’ve pulled out of the car so far; most are self explanatory. Since Honda-Challenge requires using the stock battery location, we pulled the battery relocation kit from the car. And as the Civic is now the towee instead of the tow-er, we removed the tow hitch. There’s more to be removed, as the car still has air conditioning and who knows what else living under the hood.

If you’re going to yoink the HTML and copy this table somewhere else, please remember to include a link to GRM. Thanks!
