September 2015 - Discovered there's a max image per post. Minor aesthetic repairs: post 14.



August 2015 - Installed Energy Suspension Master Bushing Kit, Front Engine Mount Inserts, SPC Adjustable Upper Ball Joints, new axles and rear shims for camber adjustment. Got the arms from the yard and had a truck suspension shop push all the old bushings out.






July 2015 - Found someone selling a hard to find set of black Rota Slipstreams in 16x8 with +40 offset. Had to cop them! Did the conduit cap mod for the center cap with satin black Rustoleum paint! I was running Kumho Ecsta AST's at the time on the previous wheels.






October 2014 - Blacked out the headlights when I installed a Morimoto Mini D2S kit. Also installed a G-Square style front grille. Lost those photos.



February 2014 - Picked up a set of Motoring Exponents 16x75 +35 wheels (Borbet Type-C replicas). They were white, but I had them stripped and refinished in the OEM style silver.

They were on Achilles 2233's, which were decent tires, but had a hell of a time balancing.










November 2013 - Oil pump seized and made a mess of everything. Found a local shop that would rebuild and install another F22A for me. Drove it up leaking oil everywhere. May as well since I was having it swapped out.












October 2013 - Someone stole my battery. Fortunately that's all. Installed Spectre hood locks.








September 2013 - Found a guy selling a Sebring axle back for a Prelude. Had it custom welded to the stock piping.







Also dented a wheel that month, had to ride on a donut.




May 2012 - Big overhaul! 11" ROH conversion, rear disc brake conversion and Koni STR-T struts.













Also made a Prelude hand brake work (not knowing the Vigor one worked).










Random Shots:






July 2011 - One piece JDM headlights and DIY Spoon Style mirrors. Mounted the mirrors using base plates for M3 Style mirrors. Cut mirror glass from larger SUV mirror glass replacements.












June 2011 - Found a 1993 Accord in the same Rosewood Brown Metallic at the yard. Picked the driver's side doors and all of the door handles off of it.




March 2011 - Picked up a 1994 Accord head unit and four Kenwood 5.6 coaxial speakers at the yard. Using my iTrip with an old school iPod for my music.




February 2011 - Found some ASA EM9 16x7 +35 wheels with Falken Ziex ZE-502's.








October 2010 - Used Eibach Sportline Springs.








September 2010 - Dug up my old Tanabe Sustec front upper strut bar that I had from my 97 Accord back in the day.






August 2010 - 94-95 Accord front lip.



Complete Gray DX interior from a part out.




















July 2010 (The Beginning) - Picked up this CB7 with 241,000 on the clock, a blown head gasket and no head unit or speakers. Mean little sideswipe action on the drivers side doors, too.



Pulled the head, did a lot of clean up, put in the new gasket and got it back on the road.






And that's that.
