1993 Honda Del Sol TransTop with JDM B16A SiR II Swap on polished XXR 521 with BYS Front aero

I always wanted to see a Transtop conversions since they where never made
here brought to the United States. The Transtop was indeed an OEM option
back in the 90's that was way ahead of it's time.
Check out this youtube video to see a full demonstration-
The del Sol transtop was standard on 92-95 del Sols in Japan, and was
optional from the factory in every other country including Japan from
92-97. The US was one of the only countries to not get the del Sol CR-X in
The transtop is NOT available to add to your del Sol, as it requires almost
every interior trunk chassis panel to be replaced to accommodate it. It
would be easier to cut your Sol in half and weld on a JDM transtop rear
section than to install and wire up a transtop piece by piece.
The transtop itself takes around 45 seconds to run it's cycle, which is 20
seconds longer than it takes to get out of your car and do it yourself.
It was never brought to the US for a few reasons. Obviously cost of
maintenance is a big one. We're cheap over here, and none of us want to pay
$200 to have their automatic top removed fixed because it stopped halfway
up at a stoplight. Also, they were very problematic. They were plagued with
motor, gear, and clip issues that would constantly stop the trunk mid
Overall, it is one badass idea that just didn't work out very well.
Stick with your car the way it is, and marvel at the transtop every time
you get the chance to see one, but don't ever wish you had it yourself, for
they were what brought the del Sol away from the splendor of actually being
recognized as a CR-X.

Filmed with Canon Eos 550D (60fps)
Made with Sony Vegas Pro 11.0 (Twixtor Pro plugin)
Garage built RealTime 4WD Honda del Sol rally car by Eric Larsen from TLAR Engineering
This is on my top 5 all time favorite del Sol list. :-) Eric slowly built
it over the years due to limited budget. The man's got talent. Moving
forward in 2012 we hope to have him work with us at N1 Concepts. We'll be
building lot of cool things together!!
Currently it is powered by a lowly bone stock B20B long block. It made
something pathetic like 110 whp to the front wheels. More power soon!!
Half of the drive train is from Honda CRV and the other half is from the
old EF Civic Wagon.
