CB7Denmark is cool... so far.
Are you telling me you bought yet another CB7, or do I know about this one?

Nice, that interior looks really clean.
Did an elderly person own it previously? They usually keep interiors very nice.

My coworker owned it for 4 years. She's in her mid 30's I'd guess. It sat for the last two years in their driveway.

Wasn't able to get new pics yet. It's been raining for a couple days.

Wagner brake pads from RockAuto. Came in an odd box. If it weren't RA I would be suspicious.

I wont be towing anything with it. I think it's maybe for bikes? Like mountain bikes and such but not really sure. Awful bulky for just bikes...

Flex pipe is damaged. So it leaks and sounds like shit. Bought a Bosal stock replacement downpipe from RockAuto and the factory style metal gaskets to go with it. $75 shipped.

Downpipe is supposed to be here Monday. Will be great to have it nice and quiet. I can't stand exhaust leaks even the slightest.

Still need an oil change and the fuel filter replaced. Haven't got around to that yet.

This motherfucker...

I ordered a Denso Radiator from RockAuto. $61.09 shipped and will be here Thursday. Good thing I have 41 hours of vacation, 16 hours sick time and a day off with pay certificate saved up... Wasn't planning on working on shit my whole vacation but it's looking more and more like I'm going to.

I never wanted another project and it better not turn into one!

In all seriousness if this car turns into another project I'll sell it in a heart beat and not bat an eye.

I was/am expecting to do a little maintenance, take care of the brakes then drive it for a couple years with just the routine scheduled maintenance as advertised by the manufacturer.

If anything goes after I replace this radiator I'm done. I should have sold my 1993 EX when I had the chance.

This is why I bought the new downpipe and gaskets. This video was taken with the windows up and the A/C on. Wait till the end, I nail it to the floor for a bit.



Aaand the new Bosal replacement downpipe and gaskets. I ordered several gaskets and glad I did, I ended up with two that work.
