dreamability is cool... so far.
Well She's on the ground for the first time in 18 months! Couldn't help myself and had to take it around the block a couple times. The car drives amazing!
With the suspension I'm not sure if it just hasn't settled enough yet or if I'll have to go back through and lower the spring seats a notch on the Konis.
Currently on the rear one side is three fingers from the fender and the other is two.

I'm waiting on a couple fittings and a hose for the aluminum reservoir I put in and finish the power steering.
However after driving briefly without it I don't want it! I'd never driven without the pump hooked up, its easy to steer and feels great!
Wish I'd known this before I put the engine back in!
Well for now Ill just finish the set up but I definitely would like to get rid of it.
I'll be looking for info on deleting it.

Also I have another video up of the engine install.

Looks great man! And OMG putting an engine in is way easier with 2+ people
And ya, you're going to have to disconnect that PS line to move it, but no big deal.

The engine bay looks fantastic! It's good to see you've had the chance to drive it. I've been driving my car for about 5 years now without power steering and it's been just one less thing to worry about. Ultimately I want to try out the diy that removes the springs or valves out of the rack that makes it even easier to steer. Good stuff man.

Thanks. Yeah I'm definitely down for having help, lol.
I'm sure one of my roommates would have been happy to help but I was stuck on "all done by me".
Really it wasn't that bad though.

Thanks Mike. Yeah I'm really happy with it. I'm actually almost done with her just haven't had time to do a proper update yet.
For the power steering that is exactly what I'm planning to do. Just gonna grab one out of the yard, rebuild it and convert it.
For now the power steering and aluminium reservoir are all hooked up and working good. No leaks.

Well I've been slacking off on documenting the work and progress.
However I have not been slacking on the work and progress, lol.
I really wanted to get her done and on the road after 18 months so I just went all out on it the last few weeks.
Its been a ton of fun! Love the Koni's with Vogtland springs on the Cooper performance tires.
Incredible handling through the corners and a comfortable ride.

I was able to take it to Import Face Off on November 3rd and put her in the show.
She actually Won! Best old school!
Pretty cool and a nice surprise since I was right next to a super clean right hand drive JDM 3rd Gen Prelude!
Also this guy Chris, shot some nice video of it at the show and posted it. I'll link it here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6swY...A&index=2&t=0s

This winter I'll be putting in new adjustable rear control / toe arms, front SPC camber ball joints.
Getting my p28 so I can quit throwing a cell for EGR.
I have it all hooked up under the dash vacuum and all but no luck it still throws the cell.

Anyway here are a few new pics.
I'll also link my YouTube again for anyone not on yet.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWG..._as=subscriber
I'll have some new content up in a couple weeks.
Thanks!

Really like the choice of color for the engine bay accents. Love the build!
