Also had some dynomat for the trunk and did this. I know you technically only need 75% coverage but I did the whole thing. Still debating if I should do the trunk lid...



Tore off the spare tire connection thing which holds the tire in place. But ripped a hole in the floor which had to be fixed.






Missing a pic here of everything done, but just the corners i filled in.

So this is almost complete. Not sure how I may "house" this yet connection point yet, maybe a plastic container around the glued unit. It will go under the passenger side feet, possible in the CPU compartment. It's about 10 feet long so the real fuse box connected at the end will sit in the trunk area possibly. Want the real fuse box to be able to pivot out for access but not be a safety concern too.

Almost done! This harness has been quite a long project. Good to see you're still working on it.

Almost. Although it seems I have bigger issues. Took the car for another drive on the weekend and that input shafts bearing in the transmission is getting loud! So I'll have to start on the tranny soon.

But here's some pics from my venture ....

PS had a small leak so I bought a rebuild kit. Took the old PS pump I had and started to clean up every part.

Current unit, leaky, dirty...


Cleaning...

Well I guess the advertised PS rebuild kit I bought was the wrong one. Go amazon! But still went ahead.........

Old vs. new. It's hard to sand in those places...


Wish I could not use this heavy thing...


Looks 100 times better!




And only one regret! ............ yes, I'm going to take that bracket off and paint it silver. Not sure what I was thinking. Also have some more cleaning to do on bolts and nuts, etc. in the area.

What did you think about the rebuild kit? I have a spare ps pump I want to rebuild. Where did you buy your kit from?

Was going to buy it form rock auto, but bought it from amazon. Both had the same part # and in the end none of the seals in the kit were the proper size

They were all close, but not the proper ones. Like it was a cheap ebay bullshit brand where it was a generic honda PS pump rebuild kit and not close to the honda one.

Started the car tonight after cleaning and re-using the old seals and it's not looking good. Also now it looks like the top high pressure hose seal is now leaking a very small amount.

FAIL

And....... I searched for a couple of days for that too. You can't specifically find a kit that matches your pump, ie - I have a 1995 honda accord PS pump. So on ebay you'll find this. But...... either the seals were too thick or made in China, etc and were not exactly what they should of been in some dimension.

So. ..... what did I think. I think unless you get these from Honda which I don't know is possible (going to call tomorrow), it is easier to buy a new pump.

You can definitely get everything you need from the dealer. I've rebuilt 1 4th gen and 1 5th gen prelude p/s pump with great success each time. Dealer and/or majestic always has what I need

So can you call them and buy a rebuild kit for specific pumps?

^I've yet to see a nice and convenient rebuild kit from honda. I will ahead of time jot down all the part #'s that I need for the pump I'm rebuilding and call in my order or order online. It would be a whole lot faster with a kit but honda doesn't always seem to keen on rebuild kits!

Ya, & I know the feeling of that Honda parts guy looking at you like your a cheap bastard who can't buy a PS pump :P haha

After watching Eric The Car Guy's rebuild video and seeing as I have two very small leaks now I'm starting to think of just buying a new pump. Hell, it will last another 10 years anyways.

17 year kid up the road use to drive this 02 civic with a loud fart can and black soot up the back bumper.

He (probably his parents) bought him a 2015 or 2016 civic si. Car looks great. But the first mod he does is add a 3" fart can to the car and it sticks out past the bumper a bit. Completely ruined the car.....

Surprisingly enough that PS pump is not leaking. Seems the seals kind of set in.
Anywho, here's some pics...




Anywho........Seen this in a parking lot the other day too. In amazing shape.

my g/f always names my cars but i never did. seems the name of this girl is Sally. Soo got some time to give some love to sally. Items addressed...

Originally went under here to address the squeaky noises from the lower sway bar when braking or cornering at low speed, not sure this can be fixed though

- hit the exhaust the other day and scrapped off the exhaust wrap. unwound it, re-did, it's a bit shorter now.


- Wiring. Well i hope this works. Not sure anyone else has attempted such a thing. But reviewing the plan... Looking at the below photo....


-The grounding of the fuse box is not a ground bolt or wire, but more an actual black wire that comes from the fuse box wires and connects to a car ground. You could make the ground longer to connect where you please. My ground on this section of the harness is above the glove box.

- The black box is a giant relay box I believe, I'll put it up somewhere under the dash
- The red box are the fuse box wires that go out to the engine bay
- Yellow box is a component box technically screwed into the fuse box. You could take it out which is what I will have to do and tuck it away under the dash. One could also extend these wires.
- Green box. Where the power wire goes. With the fuse box in the trunk this wire will simply connect to the distribution block in the trunk. (The bolt beside it would be the alternator power feed. My amp wire with in-line fuse simply connects to the starter bolt. A proper splitter in the engine bay would look better but still the same power scenario / 2AWG to starter / 4AWG to ALT.



Finding somewhere to put these wires is going to be the biggest challenge!


For Testing.



The fuse box will be going in the trunk. I'm thinking the where the OEM jack goes would look great! Need to fab something up to hold it.
