NH-503P-3 is cool... so far.
Well folks I got some new stuff to show off.
First up, the battery to trunk conversion is done. Itís fantastic. I sunk the box into wagon trunk floor by cutting a square opening for it to sit in. I added a shut off switch as well as a 180 amp breaker. This is an early pic.



This is it pretty much done. I did make notches for the power and ground to come up from the floor instead of wrapping around on the floor like the pic shows.



Next up is a pair of curved fog lights I scored. They look way better and fit the contours of the bumper very well.





I also went to multiple paps to gather almost all of the sensors for the digital climate control. The CL mix motor is the correct motor to use. It has the correct amount of arm travel. I used the short arm from a civic mix motor to reach the arm used for the movement.



Scored a great H22a tranny last weekend also. An M2F4 from a real 4th gen vtec Prelude at pap. These cars donít come around often at all. This is definitely a tough tranny to find.



I also pulled the speedo sensor from a CD Accord so I can eliminate the power steering hoses and ditch my power steering with components all together.



Another goody I came across is an Acura Vigor leather ebrake handle. First time Iíve ever seen a Vigor with a gray interior too. Most are black or tan.



Everything fitted to the Accord ebrake and mounted.



The end result. It matches well. Iím stoked on it.



I have more stuff to show but itís getting late.

Stay tuned!

Ya, JDM fogs looks great vs US ones! Why does the battery have to breakers? Is one a circuit breaker and the other an on/off switch?

I do like the location of that battery vs where I have mine. I have the issue where can't really put anything in the trunk for the fear of it hitting the breakers and shutting off the power.

I haven’t given an update in a while. I’ve still been busy on the car making small improvements. I removed all of the abs and went to a non-abs setup using some very clean non-abs CB Accord lines, a 4040 prop valve and an RSX-S brake booster with its 7/8 master. The non-abs CB lines thread right into it at the same spots. It worked out very well and gave me a little bit better pedal feel. The booster is smaller in diameter so it fits in easy also.



I scored an Apex-i catback for a CB a couple weeks ago. It’s used but still works and sounds fantastic.



Here it is on the car. I think it hangs a tad bit too low. I’m going to bring it up like an inch. Peep the new Cali. “Legacy” plates also.



Fixed the headlight issue I caused also. Now everything works beautifully again. Stay tuned for new even slicker one piece headlights (built by yours truly) to get installed soon.



Some of my latest scores are this damn near flawless CB9 roofrack. This rack is one of my favorite things about CB9’s. Love em.





Got some CB9 only rear arms. I also got the 92-93 only CB9 EX rear calipers with the larger pistons.



Last but not least. I think I found a direct swap solution to add a trunk pop for those of us with aftermarket keyless entry setups added to our cars. This is from an early 90’s Acura Vigor. It has the “pop” actuator on what looks to be the exact same trunk lock mech as the CB Accord. Looks like it will bolt up the same also. I’ll know for sure when this one gets delivered to me in a few days.




As always, stay tuned!

Iíve been working on a couple projects lately. One is the 92-93 EX wagon only rear brake calipers with the larger piston. I got them all painted in the same burnt copper color as my front RL calipers. Here they are all finished.



I also scored an original CB Accord dealership purchased car cover. Only used a couple times then sat in a garage for the next 26 years. My friend scored it from the original owner then I got it from him. Itís a really nice cover and of course fits the car well. I tucked in the mirror cover ears because my mirrors are folded in.



Iím almost done with some beautiful one piece headlights. Iíll show them off very soon.

Stay tuned!

I love the burnt orange color, I wanted to paint my crx that color with a smoked clear over it... still knocking out amazing upgrades to your CB, inspiring to say the least.

Why did you decide on wagon rear arms? They're heavy!

They really aren't that much heavier than the stamped steel arms. Also they don't cost $400 for a set of stiffer arms.

But if you get them because of one marginal performance benefit (stiffness), why take away from a more significant, if also marginal, benefit (weight) to achieve it? Is the small increase in stiffness really going to be taken advantage of?

Well in doing auto cross I'm sure the stamped steel arms are flexing a little bit under the high stresses. I do auto cross in the summers. I actually have a set of coupe/sedan arms with bushings laying on the floor of the garage right now. This weekend I'm installing another set of Prothane rear control arm bushings in some wagon arms. I'm going to weight both sets of arms and see what the weight differences actually are. I will report back Cyborg.

I’m not that intent on shaving weight off of this car. I go Up and down in weight depending on what I remove or add anyways. I’ve heard that since the wagon arms are the same shaping as the sedan/coupe arms they have more clearance for the exhaust. The aftermarket stuff doesn’t follow the shape as closely and can get in the way of a nicer correctly tucked exhaust. I need that more than less weight. Plus with another set I can swap out bushings and clean & paint without having to remove what’s on my car now. It all works out.

Yeah, the 'second set' idea is what I did with my RSX's fronts to minimize downtime since it's my ride to work.

I was just curious, thanks. Exhaust fitment on a lowered car is justification enough!

So the big piston calipers went on this weekend. Straight forward easy swap. Nice to do an easy upgrade for a change.



Here is a couple comparison pics of the wagon calipers on the left EX coupe on the right. The wagon is definitely bigger. Look at the front of the casting also. The U shape is even bigger. I donít have measuring calipers but in person itís easy to tell the difference.





Once again my bumper is off and the headlights are out. Getting ready for my new set. Hopefully theyíll be done this week. Iím inching to drive again.

I want to show everyone a few teaser pics of my new one piece headlights. They are just about done. Iíll polish the outer lenses and clear them this weekend.



The top one piece is my current setup. Basically clear and chrome with a black housed main reflector. The new one definitely has more personality to it.



You can see here that only the outer part of the fin I left chrome. Also the projector is blacked out on the inside of the halo. I left only a small chrome ring just behind the halo on the outer housing. The rest of the outer housing is black as well as the reflector bucket behind all of it. I really love how it all has come together. I miss having yellow highs also.



Theyíll be in the car soon hopefully by early next week. Stay tuned!

From EBay. They’re like $55 shipped. They work good too.

Looks amazing! That's what I wanted to do (copy BMW look) but couldn't find these. Ended up using full rings but they go up into the light where you can't see them kind of thing...

People under estimate how hard it is to do these properly!

John is your reflector black housed or is everything stock chrome with amber corners?

I like the no yellow highs look. Way cleaner

Heres the thing about a clear high in my car. I have DRL headlights so even if I put a nice 6000k bulb in, the lower amperage change to light the DRL’s makes it look yellow. A dull yellow. So I went with what I liked before I had my one piece headlights.
