What projects ya got?

Welp..my poor cb7 is on the back burner again..
Hoped to get my engine a week or two ago and it was gone,so was the 5spd i was gonna get..oh well i suppose.
In the mean time since my honda is waiting patiently on a heart transplant,i've decided to keep myself busy with another project
A 1987 suzuki 230 quadsport lol. Replacing the chain guard,valves,plugs,and cleaning it up. Hopefully i can find new plastics but im not too concerned. I've got an old kawasaki 750 bike engine laying in the garage that I've been debating on throwing on the quadsport,stretching he frame and widening it,and getting super moto tires to ride it on the street and title it as the kaw lol...
Anyway,what are yall working on? I've also got my 91 chevy in the garage,ive got a 81? Sunbird in there,and a f350 plow truck getting prepped for winter

My CB7 got smashed by a speeding junkie a couple years ago. My current project is a 1990 Miata, which hasn't been much of a project at all. It came with all the suspension mods I'd want to do to it myself (bought it from an autocrosser), and it's in otherwise incredible condition. I added some frame rails (which effectively put me in a hopeless autocross class... but I don't care!) and a cheap digital media receiver. All I have left to do is paint it and replace the top, and it'll be like a brand new car! A brand new incredibly slow car!

I've got my 06 CTS-V as well, which has taken over daily driver duty... and it's showing. The poor beastie needs differential bushings and front shocks (I have the bushings, but I don't want to attempt to tackle that myself... it's going to the shop soon.) Wasn't meant to be a project car, but it's turning out that way!

steelbluesleepR seems to have made some friends!
I've got my 90 accord that I haven't driven in nearly a decade, a Subaru outback with a rod knock, and a 92 accord coupe that I bought in May as a daily that was smacked in the right rear quarter.

2001 Prelude, kind of a replacement for my CB. H23a swap and my rolling laboratory.

2003 E46 ZHP. Everything is broken or about to break. I'm kind of exaggerating there, but not really. Want to return it to stock driveability.

2008 Accord V6-6 Nothing really special about this car other than the engine, transmission and exterior when modded. Want to throw some 20s on it and bag it for the stance life. I have literally zero interest in performance mods for this car.

1996 Ford Tbird (Wife's car) I returned this one from the dead. It had a fuel pump wiring issue...after starting it for the first time in 4 years or so, it smokes. Looks like oil leaking on to the header. Figuring out if I can swap a Coyote into it.

Too many to list, my main project is an 1988 squarebody C30 on semi wheels bagged, body-dropped and cummins swapped. I wish I had more time to work on it.

A coyote in a tbird would be awesome! Those old birds are largely forgotten anymore. I rarely see one that’s anything more than a beater.

Gooooood night! Thats nasty man,12 valve i assume? I've always wanted to do a similar build,i just cant find a 3+3 around me for cheap that isnt rotted out from ohio winters

A coyote in a tbird would be pretty badass,you could piss off alot of camaro owners lol. It is hard to find a nice one anymore. A buddy of mine has 4 super coupes in his barn,all supercharged 3.8s,3 are auto and ones factory 5spd. Hes had them all for years and hasnt done much with them but the 5spd,thats his baby. Its got head work,pulleys,injectors,and a few other "bolt ons" as he says lol. I can honestly say i never gave a damn about thunderbirds until i rode in that car,it pulled super hard,handled like it was on rails and floated down the road like a granny car,it impressed the hell outta me lol

Yup 12 valve, I picked up a 94 dodge 2500 auto for a donor. I picked this R30 3+3 up in AZ when I lived in Vegas and it had zero rust. Moving back to the midwest has been its first taste of humidity and there is already some surface rust.

Aside from the CB, it's just my daily RSX. I don't want to mod the engine until it dies. Handling is just about where I want it. Aesthetics are the next thing to tackle. It needs a respray with dent and rust repair, and there are a handful of aftermarket body pieces I want to transform the overall look.

Haha. It really is like a couch, on wheels, with a v8. It's an overlooked car, imo. Most of the ones I see are beaters. Hell, this one IS a beater, but it has potential.

And a few people have done the swap it so it's possible, but of course $$$.

I just installed a Pioneer MVH-190UB radio along with 4 new JVC Club 5020's and an oldskool (1996) Pioneer TS-WX100 woofer and some Chinese amplifier (the last two only cost me $50).

I'm currently in the process of redoing the whole interior. The headliner, A/B/C collums are currenty at the upholsterer getting lined with black alcantara and I will be replacing the carpet soon with black carpet (instead of green-ish) and getting rubber floor mats for protection.

I also just sprayed the trunk shields black. I will be installing a wooden floor in the trunk soon, which wil be covered by the same black carpet I mentioned prior.

Koni Sport shocks (already ordered), Ground Control adjustable springs and Lenso BSX rims (most likely) after that. A Legend lip will be installed once I get my hands on one (anyone?).

being an absolute gear head,i cant help myself but to take on projects even when I have 5 other things going on...i "looked at" a 1992 Mazda Lantis today,if you don't know what it is,it's a 4dr Mazda that they built in japan,its essentially a 4dr 4cyl probe lol..i can get it shipped to my doorstep with a clean title and legally imported for under $3k,so its going to happen as soon as I talk to a few more people that have dealt with importing vehicles before.
anyway,future plans for the Lantis are gonna be almost identical to my old probe gt,KLZE on 8lbs,headers,cams,a 5spd from a probe gt,coilovers,some Japanese wheels,and it needs a little body work..i figure for around 6-7k I can have one of the most unique cars around for a few states,and no matter what I'll be able to turn a profit on it if I wanted to. I mainly just wanna build another KLZE and im not about to buy another probe or Mazda protege,i've always wanted a RHD car and these little lantis's are so ugly that they're almost cool lol

Nice projects everyone!

As some may know, i just picked up a 92 DX coupe for a grand for a dailee. She definitely needs some love. Going to replace the driver door and side skirt since theyre damaged from 2 owners ago. Thinking about rocking some UA5 skirts, but not fully set in stone yet. There's some rust on the passenger quarter, but nothing major, so going to be cleaning that up. Also, i have a 90/91 front bumper that I'll be swapping on with some CD5 orange turn signals and BB6 JDM fog lights with a Legend lip. Down the road i plan on building a boosted F22A1 (the one thats in my sedan currently) on an MHI Small 16G. My goal is roughly 300whp. Sleeper coupe 😄😍💚

I still have my coupe but it's registered as non operational so it just sits until I decide to put more time and money into it. My S2000 has a handful of parts eating to be installed but those parts have already been waiting for a few years. Off-roading has been more gratifying for me lately so I've been putting most of my effort towards modifying my Land Cruiser and my LX570. The Land Cruiser is my trail beater and the LX is used more for camping and easy trails.
