I think it's the black bumpers and wheels. I've been hearing that a lot lately!


Some of you who I've kept up with through PM's know I've been out of commission since September due to a neck injury (C5-C6 spinal disc herniation). Times were tough, but with proper care and regular therapy I'm on the mend and finally feeling normal again.

The CB7 is still running strong and doing well. My suspension and PS delete made it a challenge to drive in that condition, so I kept it to a minimum.

During this recovery time my itch to tinker has focused away from the car and into my watch collection. I've been rebuilding and modifying Seikos and a couple of Casios (mad JDM yo!). Here's what I've got in front of me now:


For anyone interested, these are my Seiko 6309 "turtle" divers, left to right showing the progress of the builds.
- Left is a 6309-7040 from 1984. It's waiting for the dial, hands, crystal, bezel and insert.
- Middle is a 6309-7049 (US market version) from 1980. This one is an awesome specimen in fantastic condition. Everything about it is original except for the addition of a domed Hardlex Type 3 crystal designed for the earlier Seiko 6105 diver. I'm just waiting on an OEM spec bezel insert.
- Right is a 6309-7040 from 1980. I just finished this one up. It has an aftermarket dial and hand set intended for the 1965 Seiko 6217 (Seiko's first professional diver). I like the contrast of rectangular hour markers to the roundness of everything else around it. It sports a sapphire crystal modeled after the 6105 Type 2 Hardlex, a coin edge bezel and ceramic insert with lume filled indicies.

Off topic, I know, but this is what's been keeping my occupied while I "take it easy" on my mission to 100%. I'd rather share this with you guys than on a watch forum anyway.

Anyone into watches, here's some others I've completed: www.anthonypalileo.com/watches

P.S. I'm really glad to see all of the other member ride threads continuing to evolve! I want to post on each and every one right now, but there are so many with so many new posts that I'll have to update myself on the builds one at a time!

Apalileo, glad to see that your back and the Accord is well. I was just thinking about what had happened to you a week or so back. Glad to hear that your able to take it easy and get fully recovered. Those are some very nice watches indeed. Not that I really know anything about watches.

I always enjoy checking in on this build. Excellent modifications executed with top notch work.

I guess flattening out the sides to create the square has that effect on the way light passes through. With 55W 5000K D2S bulbs, they're fantastic!

Any shots of the output?

I was back-tracking through the thread and noticed the rigid collars I somehow missed before. Where did you find those?

Cyborg they are on ebay if you search for "spoon rigid collar". I need to get a set for the front and rear of Lola. It's on the list.

Here's to trusting eBay sellers...

I'm honestly surprised Spoon made anything specific to the CB.

Probably only because they fit the Torneo as well.

So if they are chassis specific I can’t seem to find any for the cb7, cb3. What chassis did you use? Or do you have a link to who you purchased them through?

They show up for the CB6 which is the JDM/EDM coupe's I believe, not like it matters as the sub frames are all the same.

islandhopper - Thanks for the kind words! I don't actually have any light output shots, but I will try and snap some if I take the CB7 out for a night drive.

CyborgGt - I picked mine up off of Ebay. Part number 50261-BB8-000 and while intended for the BB8 Prelude, it was applicable to the CB7. IIRC it stated Prelude/Accord on the box label.

Rilas - Thanks for chiming in. I don't visit the forum as much as I used to. I saw I've got a lot of catching up to do on Lola!

PakaloloHonda - Thanks! As time goes by, the DX charm just grows!

Grumpys93 - No link, but if you search the part number I listed above on Ebay, there are a few listings.

Rilas (again) - You're a genius! I never thought to search "Rigid Collar CB6" on Ebay. I always centered on CB7 so I only ever saw the listings for the front set. Rear set is BB6 centric, but is CB6 applicable: 50300-BB6-000. Something to add to the wish list.
