Looking for Similar Body for Integra GSR for cut and weld project

Hey guys !!

Looking for HELP .

I want suggestions. What vehicles are similar to 95 Integra GSR. I Have major rust issues and want to make a big project more simple. There are Hondaís and Acuraís out there at junk yards and i need to go and cut body parts to fit to my existing Integra Project at home.

Please list years and make model of similar vehicles for me to search for when stopping at my local junk yards.


Reference to my Project Integra Thread
( https://www.team-integra.net/forum/1...2-5-years.html )

Thanks guys. Iím working hard on restoring this vehicle to street ready and maybe for some fun racing in the future. For now, restoring the body and frame and bracing the frame with thick sheet metal. UGH I cant wait till iím Done and driving !

Thanks for any help !!


PS>... I was thinking of using Fiber Glass and the FG mesh to just patch these BIG ASS MISSING PIECES OF METAL . . . But i think thats stupid if i can just cut and weld. Any thoughts ??

With that level of rust, you might consider purchasing a rust-free shell from a milder climate area. Here is an example:

When considering the cost and effort of locating, purchasing, and installing new panels, it might be worth a road trip with a truck and a tow dolly to bring home a rust-free shell instead. This would be a great platform to create a build that will last.

I fixed my rust by ordering quarter panels from a junkyard in North Carolina. Shipping wasnt all that bad, i think it was $75.

I think you are gonna be stuck fabbing up stuff for those inner panels, especially down along the rocker area under the door. Just looking at that, it looks like it might be compromised already. is there enough metal there to make that safe after a repair?

Wow. That is awesome..! Lol jeez. Road trip ! Grab a rent a dolly and tag it on a rent a car and run all the way down there and back in a weekend .
I havenít thought of shells or even considering to remove the engine and install in another car. That shell would be amazing for me ugh !! Why so far! North West Subs of Chicago -.- . . I agree that the Tampa Integra is a great platform. I might have to think more locally. i just dont think i can tow a shell with a 16 Buick Verano . I own that car as well but i would have to attach hitch and will it even be able to tow a 1.5 ton trailer and vehicle. Probably. . I just sent an email to seller.

Thinking about how iím Going to swap engine and trans out and in is still like a fuzzy what am I getting myself into feeling. But i bet i can solve my problems one at a time.
