Hey Kai,

Sorry, I got your message today when I was in Las Vegas. I must never have received a missed call alert or something.

Send me a PM with your questions, and I will try and answer them. I know you figured at least one out, because you have it here in this thread.

haha wow, that was like at least 2 weeks ago LOL, yeah I pretty much figured out both problems, the vigor brakes, well are a definite yes and as for the Vigor seats the driver one was power and was missing all the control switches so i don't think i'll be doing the seat swap. I was just really anxious that day, seeing a Vigor w/ leather for the first time, since i've read that some parts were compatible.

Eh, I decided it's easier to paint something than to remove the paint from something, so here my FRESHLY painted Vigor Calipers/Brackets:

Not to be a party pooper, but don't be surprised if that stuff chips right away. I used it on my calipers initially, and within a couple weeks, it was flaking really badly, and yes I followed the instructions, and even applied many coats.

I would say you will be better off with high temp engine paint.

yeah i originally wanted to get this VHT red caliper paint which i previously did my accord calipers w/ but AutoZone was out of stock of that specific brand or rather, didn't carry it anymore. So I bought this instead. I hope it won't chip away, I cleaned and sanded the calipers with some orange degreaser and 400 grit sandpaper.

Hopefully, it will be OK, I just haven't found a caliper that seems to hold that stuff. Any of it. The high temp paint actually works well, but hopefully, that sanding job will give it something to hold onto.

I went to the JY today and found something quite unusual. I found three of those clips that cover up the license plate holes in a glovebox of a wrecked CB7. Pretty sweet since Honda wants like 10 bucks for each one retail probably.

I decided I needed to fix my coolant leak today, so i took it to my friend/mechanic who helped me out a bit. I did a new Upper radiator hose, new hose from the distributor to the heater core and a new dizzy O-ring, since the old one was leaking. It actually broke apart like a piece of hard plastic upon removal, so i'm glad that's fixed. All in all not bad for $45 worth. Fixed a coolant leak as well as my oil leak


new upper


and new hose from under distributor to heater core, THAT was leaking like a bitch before

I got a new Energy Suspension front torque motor mount insert today. They make really good parts, i was amazed at how tight the fit was inside the bracket. So this is way better than buying a solid Poly'd mount if you drive in heavy traffic from time to time. No vibrations AT ALL! but it also helps shifting dramatically, esp. in auto's like mine.








Curves to the exact contours of the mount, Oh btw, mine was a manual trans. front torque mount, so that might make a difference in fitment. And they also said you can use it on torn mounts that you may have, it fills in the space to make it like new again + better.



Fits like a GLOVE!
