michael6593 is cool... so far.
If you're looking for blades I would just post a wanted ad in the auto parts section of Craigslist. I got a full set for $75 a few weeks ago. They weren't in the best condition, but I cleaned them up and they don't look too bad.

Not that I have noticed. In my experience springs don't really do that.

Thanks for the tip, I put up an ad for a few different styles of 15" OEM alloys so we will see if I get something.





JTC shifter came in, but I forgot to pick it up today. Monday after work I should have it installed.

Installed the JTC short throw shifter today.


Out of package:



Stocker:



The JTC bolt did not fit the stock bushing, it is a bit larger. I had to drill out the brass portion slightly to get it to slide through:



Installed. In this picture I have the throws set to the longest setting (Still much shorter than stock.) and I have the knob height a few notches down:



Done:



Some more notes on this shifter. If you want to set it to have very short throws, the cable bracket will hit the shift boot plate and the cable will rub on the bottom of the console. As for the shift boot I bought a 90-93 Teg one, and I recommend you email Password:JDM before you buy one to find out which boot is the biggest/longest. This teg one is simply too small IMO.

You can't rationalize cars like these. They're not something you buy with your head, you buy them with your heart because you love them, and who can explain love?

Thank you so much for this post! I have been looking for a product like this tirelessly for months. I am putting in a new performance clutch/flywheel, and it just didn't seem right to reuse the sloppy factory setup. Can't wait

Long while since I've updated this thread, gonna get it caught up...

Been daily driving it the whole time. Got some 20% tint and new tires in 2013 and that was it until 2015:



Early 2015 I installed an energy suspension poly bushing kit in the front. I also removed 1 coil from both of the front springs. Afterwards I did an alignment:



Next I fixed some rust spots in the rear that were letting water into the trunk, no pics of that.



By March of this year the exhaust was rusting away so I decided to redo the whole thing.

I started with the downpipe, it's very restrictive. It necks down to less than 1.5" because of its dual wall construction:


New downpipe tacked together, still need to add the flanges and hangers:


Just before final welding:


It's now a full 2" throughout:


Installed:




For the rest of the exhaust I went with 2.25" tube. I added an old used resonator I had in additon to a better one from vibrant. For the muffler I used a turbo style and added some dual tips that look stockish:








It sounded good except for a drone that it had around 3300rpm. After a few months it annoyed me enough that I made a helmholtz resonator to target that specific rpm:



It worked really good, no more drone.



More recently I made a shock tower bar:




I scored some 4g Prelude blade wheels and an OE front lip, those will go on next. There are also a few more rust spots to fix, and I plan to eventually respray it once I'm done with school.

I like the progress that you're doing on the cb.

What kind of alignment contraption is that? That looks pretty neat!

Your welds are really nice too! What are the rest of the plans for your cb?

You should make yourself a rear strut bar to help the flex.

It's SmartStrings: http://www.smartracingproducts.com/smartstrings.html

Kinda pricey but I can't have my cars aligned at tire shops anymore. They never do it right, so it's like throwing money away. After 5-6 alignments SmartStrings pays for itself anyways.


I don't have any big plans for it, that is what my Preludes are for. But I may eventually buy something newer for daily driving and I would be more open to additional mods at that point.

Installed some Hybrid Racing shift cable bushings:



I also received tires for my blades and an OEM front lip. Those should be going on soon.

Installed the lip and Prelude blades:





My P/S reservoir has been bubbling over for some time, so I replaced the pump shaft seal:




The oil pan drain threads have been iffy since I got the car and when I changed the oil today they finally gave up. I ran a rethreader over the drain bolt and into the pan threads but it barely helped. I was able to get it just tight enough it should stay in place, but to be on the safe side I added some safety wire to keep it from backing out:



Next oil change I will have to drop the pan and weld in new threads.

Wow! Looks great on those blades! Was thinking of getting some for mine temporarily but haven't come across any cheap ones...
