Default 1990 Honda Civic DX

I just recently bought a 90 model civic dx for a couple hundred dollars.

I got a pretty good deal for the condition its in.

What are a few things I should first do to it?

Also,
What type of parts will fit on it.
Will CR-X, SI, etc.. parts fit in it?

I just need some help =]




Updates:
-The gauge cluster has been bought. [1/15/2009]
-Corner lights have been bought and will be put in asap [1/28/2009]

any 90-91 civic gauge cluster will work whether its from a CRX, hatch, or sedan.

dude! tha parts that will fit your car are parts from a same car as yours.
so if u need corners then go get corners from tha junk from a car same as yours if brand new then just ask for them for your car n year either at honda or autopart store.
