Looks good! Reminds me of my old '92 EX coupe (the one that got stolen), even down to the patch of missing paint on the passenger mirror...

First repair - put a fender liner clip in the brake pedal arm hole to actuate the switch so the brake lights don't drain the battery. Hopefully the battery will respond to the charger.

June 14, 2018: Quick vacuum and wipe down of the interior.

June 16, 2018: Power washed trunk carpeting and floor mats. Started disassembly for head removal.

Actually, that's Rose, my other 92 EX coupe - opposite this one - red on the outside, gray on the inside.

June 29, 2018: Head is off, removed rocker assembly and cam. The head is grungy enough that I'll probably pull the valves and have it cleaned and install new seals. Parts starting to arrive. Planning to take July 5 and 6 off to make some progress on this, my wife's Pilot (one of her rear shock blew leaving a puddle of oil on the driveway, needs brake pads too), and other projects.

Congrats on another splendid acquisition! I have hard enough time keeping track of three cars how do you manage your fleet? Do u maintain your service records on an Excel spreadsheet, hand written in a book or just scraps of paper floating everywhere?

I'm not sure how splendid it is, like most rescue projects, the more you work on it the more you find that needs to be addressed.

I have an Excel spreadsheet for each vehicle, although I'm not always good about entering every little thing.

July 7, 2018: Head went to the shop, installed new heater hoses, oil cooler seal, water pump, crank seal, balance shaft seal and retainer, timing belt (loose on top), balance shaft belt, oil pan gasket, fuel filter and bracket. The oil pan had been hit from below; I was able to flatten the bottom of it again. The exhaust system is relatively new from cat back; but the flex pipe isn't so great and the front studs/nuts at the converter are rusted all to heck. I think I can replace the studs on the converter. Contemplating a ebay low cost header/flex pipe combination (cheaper than OEM style flex pipe) and keeping the A6 exhaust manifold for possibly converting the wagon from A1 to A6 (already have a head - needs to be rebuilt - and intake manifold). Clay barred and waxed passenger fender and door to see how well they'd clean up.

July 10, 2018: Bad news from the shop, the head is cracked in two places. Dug out the head from the SE rescue project and started disassembling that, looks like every valve is bent. Hopefully I can get one good head from two and be left with a set of A6 valve springs and cam that could still be used for an upgrade on an A1. If the head is bad, the cam retainers in the rocker assembly are machined to match the head, so they are basically unusable as well, correct?

July 12, 2018: That was quick. Dropped the second head at the shop yesterday, it checked okay, ready for pickup this afternoon. Almost a shame to put this refurbished head on a rescue project.

July 17, 2018: Disassembled and cleaned the intake manifold including throttle body and EGR passages, thermostat housing, installed new thermostat in housing; can't find a second plenum gasket locally to reassemble. Made sure all valve adjusting screws and nuts were free.
