Up to today

I'm SpaghetTii


Hello whoever may be viewing this!


My name is Quinn Ward, I am 16 years old at the time of writing this, and I live in SoCal so I have plenty reason to install AC, trust me. Here is what has happened up until now with my and my 02.


I first found interest in the 02 when my father brought home a tan 1975. Soon after he introduced me to the roundie model years, and that’s when I decided that it was the car I wanted as my first.


after a while of searching and going out to look at some available cars, we ended up finding a black 1972 2002 that was converted into a tii (except the clock and badge). After receiving if we found it to be less than we expected, we ended up deciding to use it as a pa. rts car for both my dad and I.



We then found the car I ended up keeping, a white 1973 2002tii, mostly stock but it has some modifications including IE springs. 



I then began building it up and learning by working on it myself over time.


In no particular order, here is what I have done so far:

-swap front seats with recaros and reupholster front and rear in a beautiful high quality navy blue leather

-installed parking brake upgrade

-installed 1992-1995 Civic arm rest, also reupholstered in the same leather with my fathers brand logo burned into it.

-installed BEHR AC unit with all modern components

-installed sound deadening in the doors 

-replaced transmission mount

-installed stereo system using some left over Polk speakers and a sub as well as an amp and an out of sight audio mk3 unit, allowing me to use either the original radio or Bluetooth to my phone.

-replaced door panels for ones in better condition with holes already cut for the speakers

-fixed dash clock

-swapped Tii manifold

-repowder coated and zinc plated tii intake

-replaced mechanical fuel injection belt

-installed and powder coated strut bar

-installed rs001 replica wheels from pats car

-installed camber plates to fit the wheels

-machiened custom spring hats to fit camber plates 

-installed new horns

-swapped our steering wheel

-installed passenger side mirror

-built hidden phone mount

-installed driving lights 

-swapped out windshield washers

-swapped our steering colum stocks

-installed kill switch

-installed volume control, bass level, and on off switch for stereo system

-installed trunk fuel filler

-replace wheel roundels

-installed dual shear selector rod

-installed aluminum short shift lever



Quite the list!

 Here is a kinda sorta before and after (this was before adding front camber and removing wheel spacers)

yep, except it doesn't stop that well, both rear brake cylinders are leaking, that's what is next on my list and will likely be my next update. (also I need to create a rubber bushing for the front suspension, the camber plate made it a bit rough of a ride cuz its all metal.)
