1990[H]accordex is cool... so far.
Check the cells in the battery, and also put a tester on the battery make sure it's at least sending out 14.5 volts.

Well today was the last day out drive. Went for a good 3 hour long drive, it was nice I even had a cop give me a wave and a thumbs up, which.... blew me away. 5 seconds before I got to the intersection I was taking a left at I seen him stopped. In my head I said "should I look or not look". I repeated this 3 times I think, then looked at him as I look the left turn. He was all smiles and waves, he respected the car. Totally took me by surprise.

The seats lean way back I noticed, but you get use to it & I like it Of course they are super comfy too!

Tomorrow will be prepping the car for storage. Removing parts, gas shit, plugging holes, changing tires, tarp, etc

Bye bye for 6 months ....

Sure. How much do you want them for?

Condition = Fair. They work, and do have cut-off. No crack, chips, scuffs.

edit, oh shit. i think there's a rule against this. I'll PM ya.

Well I change the tires today (took the fancy rims off). hehe, it looks funny steelies, I even put the hub caps on. Stuffed all the holes and disconnected the battery. I still need to get some fuel antifreeze junk in her. But.., she is parked. Insurance is off of her too. I can't help but wonder on the future of her...

I took on a 2nd job on the weekends too, as a cleaner. Crappy job, shit pay, but the money is going towards my baby. Last winter was the 1st winter where it was not stored, it was getting engine swaps. All winters before that it was stored and I could save $$$ for the summer to follow. So this winter we save money b/c she needs it!

Future plans...

- Get some pro to fix my body. 4 areas in need are the left rear jack point, the right rear jack point, the top corner wheel well/drivers side, And the top of wheel well rears (some undercoating came off).

- Camber, tires, n' shit. Long time coming. 2.25" drop + no camber = no one's fault but your own for tire wear. I need two new 205/40/17's.

- Turrbboo. Wow, where to start, I mean finish. Proper mani, injectors, bov & WG, piping, ECU program, fuel pump, tapped pan, and dyno time. Prob missing some things, but that's a lot of $$$.

I am beyond excited to make this switch over! No-more 2 hour long wheel swaps, stuck rusty bolts, inaccessible long arm pry bar BS, and no more scraped knuckles!






Now I just have to learn how to use it properly &
By far the best gift I've gotten in several years!

Oh man. I tested the gun out. The gun is soooo quiet, its nice. The manual says 90PSI max for the gun which is perfect. I can honestly say that without air, manually changing your tires by hand takes can take 1-2 hours easily. I'm hoping to cut that time to under 15min. There are other areas too that are going to be night and day! Like lower control arms, springs, and a dam air pump!

I already went and bought one of these. Yes, I was still using a foot pump.

Do I spy Accord rails on those Prelude seats? They look right at home in your car man. Glad to see the switch to air tools was made too. Makes so many jobs so much easier and quicker.

I switched from windows phone 7 to HTC one X early last year. IPhone has not adapted much while android has come leaps and bounds the past couple years. I wish I could have a note 2! Although my phone is still quite pimp.

Mannnn sucks about your focus. I've seen that happen to a few cars and always pray mine never has an arm break leaving me stranded like that.
