Content Update:

Turns out the rebuilt steering rack had a "skip" that randomly occurred when turning left or right. It was pronounced enough that the entire car would shudder and there was a corresponding shift in the steering wheel.

Additionally, the power steering hose leaked at the threaded connection to the rack. The fitting is kinda stripped and I wasn't able to run the system. Having driven the previous car without working power steering and without executing the manual steering rack mod, I was not keen on the high effort needed while also dealing with the skipping rack issue.

Since I needed to address these issues, I figured it was a good time to replace the timing belt, seals, add the balance seal retainer, swap out the steel Euro-R oil pan for the BB6 cast aluminum oil pan (the USDM exhaust angle causes the header to rest against the Euro-R oil pan. the cast unit resolved that issue), switch to a P13 driver's side mount bracket and swap the stock flywheel for a Streetlite ACT unit. I also rattle canned the engine bay since the engine was already out.

Thanks. I need to create a diagram for the wiring I think. I'll get around to that at some point.

The chassis mods are taken directly from the car that I discarded and likely will see an overhaul in short order. When I was transferring the 5 lug from the old car, I encountered the common seized bolts in the rear LCA/subframe which required me to remove the assembly and have them torched off. I replaced the LCA's with OEM parts I had purchased a long while ago.


For now the setup is:

Chassis:
5 Lug Swap (odyssey front/ prelude hub rear)
BC BR Coilovers
SPC Balljoint Camber Kit (front)
Hardrace Radius Rod bushings
Refreshed LCA's Front and Rear (I bought them ages ago and had them laying round when I was swapping the parts over from the old car)
New aftermarket Tie Rods


Brakes:
ABS Delete
Goodridge G-Stop Stainless Braided Lines
2001-2006 DC5 11.8" Slotted Front Brake rotors
DC5/AP1 Front Calipers
DC2 Rear brake rotor (cross-drilled and slotted)
Hawk HPS brake pads front/rear

Awesome thread so far!

If you need new terminals for the Toyota EHPS, I have a few new ones left over from the MOQs I had to purchase for mine. I don't have any extra seals for the two 10 AWG wires, though.

Thanks for the offer. I had to search the Toyota parts catalog and acquire all of the connectors, pins, and wiring to the complete pigtails.

Damn, you're giving NH-503P-3 a run for his money. Very nice.

What paint do you use? Is it pretty sturdy stuff, not wearing from being touched too much, or if you accidentally scuff something against it?

Thanks.

Originally I was using SEM Color Coat Satin Black. I sanded, prepped, primed and painted the parts. I found that it wasn't the most durable finish and the gloss wasn't as matte as I wanted it to be. The console image in the post is Rustoleum Universal Flat Black. I followed the same process as I did with the previous SEM product. The gloss is more matte and the durability seems to be more robust as I haven't had any noticeable wear and tear.

I missed that last update; was the steering wheel a direct fit in terms of the airbag wiring? I remember reading that Honda changed its system at some point, so newer wheels aren't directly compatible with older SRS systems. I'm wanting that style of wheel as well.

I bought that wheel from overseas via eBay. It came without the airbag module due to shipping restrictions, which is fine I guess. I jumped the circuit at the connector on the steering column to make the SRS Warning Light go out. The horn connectors are also connected there to make it operate correctly. The CB column shroud has to be modified as the rear of the Euro-R wheel is deeper and collides with the shroud.

Managed to find a fender in the same color and replaced the damaged fender that came on the car. That was fairly straight forward. The color match was ok. Transferred over the TSX wheels, headlamps, and taillamps. The window graphics and stickers were removed. The rear bumper and antenna would also need to be replaced as they were both damaged.

Exterior 1 Continued

I knew going in that the rust on the quarter panels would have to be addressed sooner or later, but I had been putting that off. The past couple of summers had been spent doing all of the previous projects and by 2018 it was time to look into getting the body work done to at least stop the rust from getting worse.

Driver's Side Rust


Passenger's Side Rust




After setting a budget and making a document to define the scope of the repair, I went to get estimates for the work. I came across a bunch of places that wouldn't tackle a rust repair, which is fine. I did finally find a place to get the rust repaired. Instead of doing full quarter panel replacements, the shop left most of the original metal in place and welded in small patch panels. Surprisingly, there was no rust hiding behind the side skirts on the rocker panels.

After the repair







The result was a little rough looking, but it also totaled 1/2 of the estimated cost. Before getting to the rust repair I had walked through the intent for the exterior bodywork with the shop and knew that the rust repair was part of a larger bodywork job that would finesse the rust repair areas. To stay on budget, the rust repair was the first step in the process; it was to be followed by a full repaint at a later date.

Following the rust repair, I gave the car a once over and discovered that it was also having some severe rust on the fender that I had previously installed that couldn't be seen with the inner fender installed. So I spent the rest of the summer trying to locate a rust-free OEM fender in the rustbelt. A fool's errand in hindsight.

Fender off, trying to locate a replacement



After striking out a few times, I decided to pull the trigger on an aftermarket part and just deal with the odd fitment that could entail.




Since the rust had been repaired, it seemed like it was time to attempt to roll the rear fenders to prevent tire rubbing if a wider tire ever got fitted to the rear.

Fender rolling





By that time it was already late fall in Michigan and I figured I would just have the car painted in the spring of 2019. To save a bit of money I did the bulk of the disassembly of the trim and easily removed parts so the bodyshop wouldn't have to.

Disassembled Front End





Since I was trying to save money, I tried my hand at plastic welding the license plate holes in the front bumper to keep the shop from having to do it. (Thanks to Bodevision for doing a DIY on his youtube channel)

Bumper with filled holes





After that it was a matter of getting all of the parts labeled and placed into the car and then dropping it off at the shop.

A lot going on here. Can we get a drop off day 4, 5, 6

So you are having a shop do all the body work and paint it? Same color?
