    A search for a TR hood vent

    ??? I have been told an early Honda Civic hood vent was used on TR cars at one time. (possibly a 82 stationwagon) This was confirmed the other day by John Watson. I have been searching scrapyards for this item forever, just to get a look.
    I was given a part number at one time for this part. It is 60655-SAO-010 My local honda dealers say it is a good number and the part is still available at $100 plus dollars. Problem is they don't have any pics or dimensions.
    Does any body remember anything about this? Is anybody cozy with a veteran Honda partsman? Or is anybody still driving a 82 Honda Civic ???? Thanks in advance.
    And the joke is,<br />when he awoke his,<br />body was covered in Coke fizz !

    From the diagrams I found online, it's not from the wagon but from the "4DR ** 1500"

    It's hard to tell if the dimensions are the same. I'm going to look into it too.

    HI Tim. If that is it, than I HAVE seen it in scrapyards! The thing that threw me off was that front mounting lip. That would have to be cut off. The dimensions I need are 28 inches wide and about 2 inch high. Does that sound like your application? Are you the tim that sent me pics of your car about 3 years ago?
    Thanks, keep me informed. Dale P
