I appreciate ya'll stopping by of course. Always glad to see some comments. Thanksgiving weekend I drove Sally to Antigonish to see my mother. A good 3 hour drive one way, took some back roads. Couple scrapes but Sally and I had fun! Lots of bugs on the windshield.

Tonight I took her for one last wash tonight before storage time.




The view...., I think I need to aim these lights lower.


Was trying to brake boost tonight too. I found that the brake pedal pushed back with such stiffness I couldn't hold it. Was hard to do. And ....had a little boo boo. I was up at a high rate of speed and on this is what happens when you forget to tuck your drivers inner liner above the front bumper liner (and go fast). There's nothing left to it, no lower part, etc. Ahh well.



Also debating on when to start on the winter project. Part of me is saying now, but we'll see. Each winter I come up with a list of things to do for Sally, so far we have (depends on budget):

- yank engine/trans, clean up engine bay
- swap clutch and transmission
- clean/paint engine transmission
- weld engine holes?? (i have no welder, but i hear a cheap one will do)
- install volt meter somewhere (maybe buy pre-made inst. cluster w/ gauge pods). Put volts and oil pressure in cluster corners and a/f , boost gauge on A-pillar. Also need all of the lights for each of these on the dimmer, currently they are not which is a PITA at night.


Cheers

Sucks that you lost a fender liner. I've lost about 4 of them over the years on the different Accords I've had. I'm hoping that this time around the OEM double lip will help prevent some of the turbulent air right around the front of the fender liner.

Ya, i think i forgot to tuck the liner up behind the bumper.

Bought this shit the other day. But I don't know how to use a buffer, so this should be fun. It came with extra pads. There's heat wrap and a new intercooler pipe for a section i wanted to replace.

Well got a inner liner and installed it today. Thanks to a fella I know by the name of Neil who also has a cb7 and has owned several in the past. Big thanks Neil!

I also wrapped the intake pipe but i hate the color difference and already ordered silver. I'll put this under gold stuff under the car where i can get tore to pieces.





Oh... and it's friggin 22C - 25C in the day time here for some odd reason. Last time it was this warm in end of October was 1963. Can't wait to get Sally out now.

lol, kind of. I was trying to shift too fast and it couldn't keep up. It is a OEM tranny with OEM synchros and gears and I'm revving this thing to almost 8K, trying to shift in two second, throwing 400HP at it for the past two summers. haha... I'm surprised it made it this long. No-one else could drive this car simply on how you have to give each gear a different "touch". I can't wait to have shift consistency again.

previous issues are:
- 5th gear been grinding for years, been double clutching for years
- bent shift fork from last summer

Soooo I am dying to rip this thing open and have a peek at the damage. I bet the magnet is full. I've been debating when to start doing all this. I guess I'll wait till I have the money to buy the parts. And.... if anyone knows me I won't do it unless I can do it properly. It will be:

T2T4
Synchrotech Carbon Synchros
Syncrhrotech bearing kit
OEM gears but using Synchrotech F22 5th gear set
new shifters (or low milage ones)
new shifter bushings
short throw (maybe)
shifter spring mod

And what's sad is that for the first time I had the urge to step up my game. *cough... upgrade. Even if I had 700HP there's no way I'm keeping up with a GTR from a dig. How much HP do you think a CB7 would need to beat a GTR on the highway? (3rd or 4th gear pull)
