Good progress although you last photos need to be rehosted as they are not showing up
I just noticed the broken pics last night. The WS2 hangs up nicely against the bumper. What I did was take a sharpie and followed the curve of the muffler tip on the bumper and just used a drum sander on a dremel to cut a new relief in the bumper. It doesn't look too bad though it would be nice without the factory cutout on the far corner.

Here you go. Sorry it took so long, I've been pretty busy with my classes the last couple weeks.

All I did was trace the muffler profile with a sharpie then shaved it down with a dremel drum sander. You won't have to modify any of the hangers, just the bumper skin. I also had to do some touch up with the dremel a couple times after the muffler 'settled' into place.





The only issue I'm having with the WS2 exhaust is that the res hangs down so low that I keep scraping it. The rubber hangers are all new so there must be an alignment issue with some of the pipe flanges where they may have gotten twisted during assembly. I haven't looked too in depth yet since I don't like crawling around under the car.

Well, it's been a while since I posted an update on the old wagon. I really haven't been working on it that much, so thank you Honda for such an amazing and reliable vehicle! So a few updates:

Spring 2018

Both rear Koni's blew... I don't know if it was because of the springs which sagged pretty bad (I don't think H&R optimized these for the wagon) or if at least one was defective. I do remember one of them had some oil around the seal when I installed them.





I wasn't too beat up about it. Eventually I'll get around to sending them back to be rebuilt. I was always curious about the KYB AGX shocks since they seem fairly comparable to the Koni Yellow's. I definitely like the adjustment knob on the shock body a lot better. I went ahead and installed factory springs back in it too to get rid of the sagging. The exhaust hasn't scraped on anything since!

The next thing to fix was a shorting issue after excessive rain. I think the sunroof was leaking enough water into the car and somehow shorting the right blinker to the taillights. After tearing out the entire interior of the car, I found nothing but a puddle of coolant under the passenger carpet. Great... I didn't have enough time that weekend to replace the heater core so after stripping out all the wiring for the ABS unit, I put it all back together.

Now I know that Racewagon is definitely a possibility...


Yes that's an axe holding up the carpet. It was the only thing that fit.


Fall 2018

I eventually got fed up with the heater leaking on my beautiful burgundy carpet so I bit the bullet one Friday afternoon and tore into it. I probably should have replaced the heater hoses as well but the old ones looked to be in good enough shape. I also drained and flushed out all the green coolant and stop leak (PO dumped that in, I would never use that shit) and replaced it with the good blue stuff from Napa. I started at 1:00pm Friday and was shutting off the lights in the garage at 12:30am.

I am never, EVER, doing that again. I was so sore that I could hardly sleep that night. But at least the carpet is dry. If this core starts leaking, I'm looping the hoses and going without a heater.



Summer 2019

I finally got around to rebuilding the brakes. I'm not quite satisfied yet as I still want to install a steel braided line kit, and the two hard lines in the rear are about to rust through. Pads, rotors, and wheel bearings are all done except for the rear hubs. Damn partsg**k sent me the wrong ones and I ordered them such a long time ago I doubt they would work with me.



I'm still debating on buying 40 acres and filling it up with junk CB's. Some of these odd parts are getting hard to find around here!

Thanks for reading.
