We finally got a MR thread I see. See she's still looking good. Now we just need to find you some wheels to make her sit a little sexier.

Thanks but she is just a DD for now. Nothing too special. I am a beginner when it comes to cars and i try to learn and do everything on my own. I felt that in the past i have been taken advantage by mechanics who "know" hondas and they just messed my baby up.

Updating a few things like adding the current mileage and a few others.

looking for those rare 14 inch dx/lx accessory rims too...

So i noticed a little puddle in my garage this morning near the passenger wheel. I smelled it and it is brake fluid.

I noticed after i replaced my axles that the brake pedal went down to the floor. I didn't think anything of it because the brake pedal did not feel the same way it did when the master cylinder was going out. It has regained pressure though, but it is leaking from somewhere.

I topped off the resevoir with brake fluid this morning. I hope to investigate this tomorrow after work.

The inner rim is wet and so it the lower control arm.

I think I may tore a small hole in the brake line. It could also be a boot on the caliper. Not sure guys, it really scares me to drive the car in this shape.

Thanks if i ever get the steering and suspension issues figured out, then i would love to have her repainted oem rosewood. But with school and this being a DD i don't see that happening anytime soon.

I love doing the work myself and learning in the process but it sucks not having any local people or friends that want to help, You know? Or even someone that was more experienced/knowledgable.

I've planned on redoing the rosewood for mine for about two years now. It's a good color and painting the same color you don't have to worry about door jams and other areas like such.

I hear ya on not having people around for help, it definitely sucks...

So any head way on your suspension?

Hey man long time no update lol. College has started back up and I am to and from West Chester every day.
I just ordered from my local auto warehouse (which i just found out supplys pep boys and autozone lol) that they sell pre pressed hubs and bearings with full warranty.
122 a piece for both sides. I will get them tommorrow morning. Also the slide pin boots were shot and the strut fork to lower control arm bushings were shot so i ordered them as well.
Question?
Do i need a press to install the strut fork to lower control arm bushings?

Well she is still sitting in the garage, i had a shop press the bearings on the hubs and i successfully finished the driver side. I hope to make it later tonight and finish the pass side.
I wish i had some friends around here that loved cbs as much as i did, because i love working with other people. I hate working alone incase i screw something up.

In any reguard i spoke to a professor at school about starting up my business and so far so good. He seemed to like the idea. I need to focus on getting my bachelors first then i will focus on becomming ase certified.

Little update: finished the wheel bearings and rotors. Dropped car off to be inspected. Passed emissions.
Failed state... Little 10mm nut broke off of the Cover that protects the UCA nut. And my subfrme bolts(3) are missing. This is the piece where the downpipe attachs to via the rubber hanger.
Guess ill be buying a screw extractor set...
Idk what to do about the subframe

Rather depressing to say the least.

Wow, they went over it with a fine tooth comb. Just remove the castle nut cover all together. They were not used on newer Accords, even OEM replacement knuckles don't have them.

How did your crossmember bolts come out? Those bolts are M10 with 1.25 pitch, check at Fastenal or order them. I forget the length.

BTW, my trunk lid from the sedan swap matches your paint color... I have the golden 90-91 grill and golden H and Accord LX logos if you want them.

i took the bolts out to replace the bent front cross member. The junkyard one is too long, that means that my frame is bent somewhere. I am still driving her but i am looking for a wagon to swap everthing over.
i am going to throw a new suspension in and also a new steering rack with outers and inner tie rods.

I think i am going to save her no matter what, so what if she eats tires, she has never nagged me or bitched at me

Thanks man i know, i am still around and the cb is stronger than ever except her body is eating away at her, i want to see from an expert if she is worth keeping. If not i am willing to buy up a wag and use her for spare parts.

I miss you guys (everyone that has given support and love towards my project and everyones here on the site). It has been way too long.

Here is my next project along with new struts/springs which i am purchasing tomorrow(pictures to follow tomorrow after work).
I had foggies a few years ago back in 2010 but i never had them wired up properly. This new set is a complete 90/91 fog set with a,b, & c harness. So i feel i am confident i can tackle this. It is from the junkyards so I hope it works. What i plan to do is wire it up and test the whole set before i take the bumper off and cut holes.
Pictures to come tomorrow after work.

Working between 35-40hrs while taking 4 to 6 classes a semester I just knew if I was on here I would not get my school work finished. It was not an intentional hiatus but I just needed to get some stuff done.

The cb just hit 120k the other day. My whole front end needs replacing, starting with all the bushings and struts/springs. I did the brakes,rotors,bearings,hubs and axles the end of last summer. I hope none of that stuff went bad, but it is possible.
I am going out to get a shop press for the bushings because i used the rented one from autozone before and I did NOT get how the little C clamp worked. I tried to line it and use my rachet, no dice. I even tried to line it up with the impact and, no dice.
That is why i want to get a shop press so i could just take the entire lower control arm to replace the bushings.
