Yeah, I got lucky and actually was able to save my AEM V2 out of the previous car when it was wrecked. Because it was a Prelude spec one, it wasn't bolted down on the bracket so it just moved when the front got crunched.

I'm lucky that the 5th Gen Accord has a similar intake setup as the Euro R/Prelude, I may just have to drill into the bay to mount the bottom of the box to the chassis. Can still keep my battery without any issues. I'll also have to see how I can modify the other pieces (bumper cold air funnel and the flat plate when bolts to the tow hook and keeps warm engine air out). Those are both CF too, but without a clear coat on them.

That's actually what I'm going for, subtlety. I already have a Euro R intake arm, and planned on just running a Feels Honda Twincam intake elbow, but when I saw this pop up, I knew this is what I wanted. Should fit into the theme of the car perfectly.

Rust free quarter panels in case I decide to do Ruby again. Yeah the left side is dented at the rear, but good around the wheel well. Had a nice rear bumper, grabbed that too.

I'm just trying to come up with the number of batteries it took to make those cuts.

One battery got me through the entire right side and some of the left. My second battery didn't hold a charge, so I put the original on the charger in the yard office for 45 minutes. That got me through all but 6 inches of the left side. I got frustrated waiting for it to charge again and used a chisel to get through those last six inches. With two good batteries, I could have gotten them both off in less than 3 hours. The car only had about 138,000 on it, so all the bolts came out relatively easily.

I use a six inch blade (they are cheaper, so I use them where I can) to cut around the tail light opening and forward through the trunk floor outside the frame rail and up the inner wheel housing. When close enough to the rear deck, I switch to a 12 inch blade and cut through the top of the wheel housing and rear deck at the same time. When through those, back to a six inch blade to cut down the front of the wheel housing. I use a 12 inch blade to cut forward inside the rocker box section and to cut from outside in through the rocker section to meet the previous cut. It seems to work best to leave at least a portion of the C pillar intact to support the whole thing until the lower section is separated. The rear of the interior was already removed. I just had to remove the rear bumper, trunk, drop the front of the trailing arms, remove the seat belts, the fuel filler pipe, and knock out the rear window to remove the trunk hinges. I was impatient and just cut through the rear window trim instead of trying to remove it.

I suppose I should make a DIY, but has anyone else on here cut quarters off or plan to?

Probably not any time soon, but I do want to get a pair just to have a pair. Speaking of battery life, what brand/series of tools do you use? I've started the Milwaukee Fuel collecting, and a friend has a ton of Ryobi stuff that does well.

Went to the junkyard for a blower motor resistor for the RSX, and came across some other things I had to have:

'92 Accord owner's manual in excellent shape, complete with warranty and collision pamphlets. The owner's manual was written in, and it was apparently an original Colorado car, purchased June 8th '92 in Boulder. I was going to take white-out to all of that, but on second thought I think the history's cool.


(*ED. 10/14: Went to another yard after that blower motor resistor didn't fix the issue, and found three more owner's manuals! So now I've got two '92s, a '93, and two '93 wagons.)


Mint B18B1 valve cover, just needs cleaning, for my Honda VC collection.


(*ED. 10/14 - Landed a fourth H22 cover as well! No idea what use I'll have for it, but whatever...)

For better or worse, I have a Craftsman sawzall. I think I've used it to cut at least ten quarter panels off and cut down two shells into small enough pieces to haul to the scrap yard.

Fleetwood i was thinking those 6 hour batteries would of gotten the job done.

I just ordered a GPI VVT SS2 cam 223/235 .637/.637 112LSA since GM screwed us Automatic owners with the DOD system which fails over time and only way to delete is to replace cam and valvetrain. Now i am concerned that i went too big yet not big enough. Waiting on BF sales so i can get some .660 dual springs and the other odds and bits needed, luckily on the exhaust side i am setup to run up to 600+ HP without breaking a sweat; transmission wise its a whole different story.

With the recent craze of collecting vintage bench vises, I thought I was SOL in finding an old heavy work horse for my shop. It took a year but I found this old Prentiss Bulldog up in St. Paul, MN. The Prentiss company went out of business in the '40's so it's at least that old. It's in great mechanical shape for its age aside from the jaws being kind of beat up but they're replaceable so I may invest in a new set in the future. The jaws are 5" wide and the whole thing weighs around 60 - 70 lbs. Picked it up for $150.

I remember a video popping up in my YouTube recommends a while back that was about the restoration of an old vise. I didn't care to watch it, but it had views in the millions.

Maybe it's not so much of a craze as a slow rise in popularity with collectors. So now prices, especially on ebay, are increasing. Similarly sized vises are going for $200 - $300 not including shipping, which looks to be anywhere from $50 - $200.

Jeez that’s crazy. I might have to check out the pawn shops around here. I couldn’t imagine the shipping on that thing.

Thanks, I'll have to check it out.

These things are very quirky. It's a 1985 that is multi port fuel injected and utilizes a chip and tune capable OBD1 ECU. I am also able to use a lot of the newer electronics salvaged from my 04 Grand am with only simple connector modifications required. Good buy vacuum cruise control and single pintle vs newer disc style injectors.

Edit:

I have actually watched a few of his videos.
