Size9zombie is cool... so far.
my CB7 and wifes CD5

had steel wheels on it when i got it. the bottle caps came of the wifes 96 ex.
head gasket blew thanks to a bad radiator cap, so while i had the head off I lapped the valves before reassembly. At this time it had all seals except for the rear main replaced along with oem timing belt, balance shaft belt, water pump, tensioner and idler pulleysDunlop Direzza DZ102 205/50/15Eibach Sportlines vs stock springs. Using KYB G2 struts
seat tracks I welded in.
#7 Billiard ball, drilled and tapped for 10X1.50 installed with jam nut

3rd gear sychro was bad, acquired a H2U5 with around 100,000 miles from Beavers Honda (a Honda salvage yard here in NC) and installed a ACT Streetlite 12.6 lb flywheel with sport pressure plate and street sprung disc and oem throwout bearing, replaced rear main seal. replaced inner and outer tie rods with oem Honda parts. ( I work at an Acura dealer as a master tech so i get oem parts cheap!)


How it looks now, more changes to come!

Thanks! It's not totally done yet, but it's close! Wife's car will not be modified much more than current condition. The F Bomb on the other hand has a LONG way to go.

Yeah, I refuse to pay Photobucket and I have yet to get around to changing the links in my page over to my new image hosting site. Should really get around to that some time soon. Thanks for the reminder.

So...an 09 TSX fell into my lap today, $300 for the whole car. Guess f20 is off the table now and i'll be going k series. It is a totaled car but just because of frame damage, nothing mechanical, i know the car well, i've worked on it since it was brand new. It is just outside of factory warranty and JUST had a rering done under warranty.

Talking

Sonikaccord, easiest way i know of to clean the whole inerior. Takes a while to dry though, carpet took 3 days.

Grumpys93 yea i'm looking forward to having a k swap in it too! I will be building my own harness and anything else I can to save as much money as possible. I want to see just how cheap yet correct with no corners cut I can do this. I will be taking tons of pics!

I finally decided what I'm going to do about the paint on the CB, I'm going back with the factory Rosewood Brown Metallic so it is the same inside and out. Once I get around to it the cage will be painted same color also.
