    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.

    just get headlights from whatever car you have. if u have a sedan, get headlights from a 90-91 sedan.
    search.
    he said he's looking for headlights. not bulbs.

    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.
