I bought it off a friend so I gave a bit more than I normally would to help him out. But it was still a good buy on my end as well.

180K, automatic, new all season tires, working A/C and wrecked twice.

It has been hit in the rear although it's not immediately evident. I helped the PO put the trunk off my wrecked 1993 Lx on it several months back. It has also been bumped or something on the driver side front fender as can be seen.

ABS light is on.

Mechanically it needs the valve lash adjusted, brake pads all the way around, oil and filter change, cap & rotor, plugs, PCV valve, air filter and fuel filter. Run of the mill stuff.

It should do what I want it to which is get from point A to point B. Nothing special going on with this one, just maintenance and such.

The pic from the front vaguely reminds me of your old CB, RIP.

It does me as well.

What's funny is those are the headlights and corner lights from that CB. When my friend bought this car it had projectors. So I sold him the headlights and corner lights to put in this.

Pics as promised. Just a little late as all my tools and such are at my old house. Was glad to have a few hours today to get it looking a bit better and fix a few things.

Installed center caps, unbroken cup holder, Depo amber bumper lights, stock intake, driver side tail light, passenger side mud flap, Integra clock, passenger side rear door panel and handle and that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

I told a fib earlier, it has 217,000. Don't know where I got 180 from. New matching tires all the way around as well. And a damn fart can... That will be coming off here shortly.



















Got some much needed parts gathered up.

Thanks, I was surpsised it turned out as clean as it did so easily. I got a gallon of Redbull degreaser that is pretty nasty stuff. It's left over from 2011 from my 1993 LX. It will eat aluminum if not diluted so needless to say, the bay is going to be super clean when I done.

That's actually a cheapo battery. Does brighten the bay up though!

It's kinda a pain. But maybe I've gotten enough practice at it by now. Just make sure you pry from the left.

Well I have a whole portable building full of Accord parts. So I just opened it up and seen what all I had and what the car needed.

That muffler... I hate that muffler. I don't know what it is about that muffler but it's louder insider the car than my 91 Accord is which is straight piped to a straight through muffler.

I wasn't going to say anything yet but I guess now is a good time to. Later this week I'm putting a Pacesetter Monza Catback on it. It's slightly used and in great shape. Should quieten it down a lot. It's the old style too so it doesn't have the massive tip that the newer ones have.

Yeah that's from my 1993 LX. I checked it and that's not what's in there anymore unfortunately. But I have a couple K&N panel filters in my building.

Since I announced that I'm installing a Pacesetter Monza catback I might as well mention what else I have planned for the immediate future.

-Power steering pump makes a bit of noise and leaks a little. Got a really nice one for it pulled off another engine a while back.

-I took the dizzy cap off and it was full of oil. So I'm going to buy a remaned dizzy from RockAuto. It's $103 and comes with a cap and rotor.



-Going to throw a new fuel filter on it. I know it needs it bad. OEM Honda.

-Valves need adjustment.

-Valve cover gasket leaks, going to replace it with the OEM Honda kit.

-OEM PVC valve.

-I know the spark plugs that are in it are new but I got wind that the person who put them in said "don't need to gap them they are pre gapped" and I know they are traditional style NGK plugs.

-Going to drain the transmission using the internal pump. Going to buy 8 quarts of Honda ATF to put in it.

-Clean shift solenoids.

-Clean IACV.

-Oil change with Castrol GTX 10W30 and a Bosch filter.

-Front and rear brake pads. I've come to like Duralast pads from Autozone since I go through them so fast.

-Replace the driver side window regulator and motor.

-Might Seafoam it. Before I replace the plugs that's in it.




Today I'm going to go to Buddy's, my local salvage yard, to look for a driver side fender in the same color. Would also like to find an OEM spoiler.

I remembered a little while ago that I have a set of Acura TL heated mirrors and a heated mirror switch. As well as an EDM rear fog and JDM side markers.

I also need to grab some CB7tuner stickers for this car... can't believe I forgot.

I think I've only got 3 hours working on it thus far. Not too bad. It was easy stuff.

Ya know, I'm just kind of going with what I have on hand for the most part. Just so it gets used.

I never really know how they are going to end up. I just go with it. A car is like a paint brush to me. From the very first time I look at a vehicle once it's in my possession I examine it, add something based on what I see, then take another look, add something else and so on. It never really ends.

Besides, one nice CB!
