°˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
I bought my 93 coupe in October 2017.
In May 2018 I pulled it into the garage to install Some Koni shocks with Vogtland springs as well as some watanabe style wheels and just kept going, lol.
I’ll do my best to document what I’ve done the last 12 months.
It would be great to have some feedback or help as I progress, and hopefully it may prove helpful to someone else down the line.
Wish I’d done this from the start because I could have used some insight more than once.
Also, I can't see doing this without the CB7tuner community. It has been an indispensable resource. Thanks!

I did an ABS delete.
I've also done a full wire tuck, fuse box & battery relocation.
Here is a DIY I made of the process
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=210829




The night before I pulled it into the garage


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............
Day One


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............


Some of the first work I did was to the suspension, brakes, bearings, and bushings.
Before



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

After


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Front bumper was pretty much beyond saving. They had cut the fog lights holes way to big as well.


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

New bumper. I carefully cut new holes for the fog lights and ready for paint.


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

The finished product.


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Engine removal day.



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Transmission was hell to clean! Just some minor oil leaks, lol.


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

ABS Delete, wire tuck, fuse box relocation to glove box, and battery to trunk.
I extended, soldered, and heatshrinked all wires.
I also made my own block off plate.

If you'd like to see the wire tuck I made a DIY:
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=210829





.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............


For the battery relocation I used 1/0 AWG cables and soldered on copper lugs.
I Made my own battery box. Its lined with truck bed liner, finished outside with outdoor polyurethane.
I vented it under the car through the frame and used weather stripping around the lid with wing nuts to hold a seal.
On the side of it I placed my junction box and circuit breaker.



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............


The head ready to go back on. Engine had all oil seals replaced, cleaned and painted as well as the intake and plenum. Power steering ,dizzy, and starter are rebuilt. Dizzy and pump polished.


.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Unwrapped, cleaned, redirected and re wrapped the engine harness.



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Epoxy primer, base coat, and clear coat on the bay, underside of hood, flush mount spoiler, and trunk.
The all-clear taillights will be tinted black with LED lighting








.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

I spent a lot of time on the graphics. I made them in Adobe Illustrator.
Then I had to find someone with a good enough vinyl cutting machine to cut something this detailed.
So after the white base coat I applied the decal then the turquoise base coat, removed the decal and lastly applied my clear.
Getting them all off between the second base coat and clear was difficult, but think it turned out pretty good.






.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............

Just finished the painting today. I had to redo the trunk and flush mount spoiler because I ran out of clear and didn't have enough left to get it to flow. Looked gritty.
Also started on the second radiator retaining bracket. Decided to make my own out of plate aluminum. Going OK, just a lot of hand filing.



Thanks for checking out my work.
I will keep posting my progress.

Good job so far man. It's coming together. I love that wiring. About that DC header, how well does it fit?

Hey man. Yeah, whatever wiring will be seen has gotta look clean!
As far as the DC header, fitment is perfect, including clearance for the AC lines. I checked them tonight so I could let you know. Model is HHC5016.
Haven't seen anything on your thread sense you did the seats. I'll be keeping an eye out for anything new.

Thanks, I really appreciate it!
Yeah, nothing gets a pass till its been cleaned, polished, rebuilt, or replaced.
Even the bolts and screws are polished, Lol .
I'm glad I finally got a thread up and going. Now I just have to keep up with it!

I've gotten the flush mount spoiler all lined up and holes drilled for the two corner mounts. Perfect fit.
Now I just have to wait for the 3M Automotive Acrylic Plus Attachment Tape to arrive.
Decided to go with this instead of the molding tape for something a little stronger and more permanent.

Man I'm glad to hear from some other CB owners in Texas. You in Dallas? I'll definitely be bringing her to some meets. Plan on being at the Import Face Off in Ennis, Tx. this winter,(11-03-2019). Other than that I don't know of any around Dallas. What meets you talking about? I'm for sure down to show when I get her done! Should be rolling in next 2-4 months.

Hot damn, that's a fine looking build so far. I really like what you did with the artwork on the valve cover and intake manifold. Really looking forward to see where you take it.

Was able to complete a video of the build.
Mostly a slideshow of the progress but the last part is a 2K video of the engine.
Hope y'all will check it out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkQNngMi0_w

Thanks to everyone for your comments.
Means a lot after so much hard work to hear a little praise.
Well been busy on a lot of small stuff. Polishing break lines, A.C lines, clutch lines and making some new ones.
Took the cluster out and put in the chrome tach rings as well as some LED's.
Also rewired the cruise control to the center console. Gonna put a couple rocker switches in for set and cancel.
Sorry no picks. Just been doing ALOT of small tedious jobs.
Next post will have some good picks and bigger updates for sure.

You have put in some elbow grease and it shows! Nice work, I wish I had the patience to polish everything up, but I get maybe 5 mins in and I'm bored.

Well its been long enough I should give some updates.


Got the Non-ABS system all hooked up and done. Hopefully I have everything right. We'll see when it hits the ground.
Also used NWAccords idea I saw for the fuel injector resistor box location and made a little bracket for it to hide some wires.




Checking to make sure I had the brake lines ran right to bolt up I stuck the front suspension in temporarily.




Finished the radiator retainer brackets I hand made. Turned out ok but could use some more polishing.
Also cleaned up and painted the cross member,(K member). Used VHT Roll Bar & Chassis Paint.
You can also see in this picture that I painted the backside of the headlights black. Think it looks a lot cleaner than the old worn out grey




Shot of the finished blacked out headlights and gutted 90-91 grill.




Got a lot done on the interior but still some more to go. Mahogany steering wheel is all done with a clock spring I made for the horn. Intalled the chrome cluster gauge rings.
Also ran a wire for the cruise control set to put in to the center console. The shifter knob is by MarksMillworks. You can check him out on Etsy. Does some great work!


And I finally got the engine put in.
I Love it. Really is turning out how I'd pictured it in my head
... like a year ago, lol.



A couple small hiccups but nothing to major. I plan on covering those in a video later. Not long now!
Unfortunately I have some other projects stealing time away from the coupe. Hopefully I can still have it on the road by October.


Also, I put another video up on YouTube of a walk around the car. Please check it out. If you like it then please like and follow. I'd like to do more if I see people enjoy the videos.
https://youtu.be/694kVF71XlE

Here is an older video I did of the build too if you missed that.
https://youtu.be/PkQNngMi0_w

Thanks for checking out my work.

Thanks man! Its been an amazing process and I'm pretty happy with the results. Cant wait to get it on the road!
Not sure it'll ever be done though. I'm always seeing something else I'll want to do with it next, lol.
I am amazed by all the ingenuity and creative process shown on yours. Really a great MR page man.
BTW, I'll be looking to follow your lead on the power vent windows, lol.
Saw a video of them and immediately started looking on your page to see how you did it.
