Jon is very helpful Jon is very helpful
Only thing I can suggest is keep doing it. Experience and learning hands on is the only way I learn and get better at doing things (watching YouTube videos does nothing for me ).

Car is finally home! Wish me luck!



Started disassembling the front again to gain access to the wheel wells.



Shot of front. Three layers on non-corrosive primer plus three coats of rubberized undercoating.



Degreased, cleaned and sanded with 80 grit sandpaper. Three layers of non-corrosive black primer Body 922 and three layers of Body 950 - rubberized undercoating in a spray form.

Started to dismantle the passenger sided suspension parts - yes, just a half. The other half will be done when this half will be done. Whatever, hehe

That should protect it pretty well. Looks good. Now its ready for a 2000 Accord v6 complete front knuckle on each side. Changing a CB to 5 lug is well worth the time and $$$. Especially when its all ready apart lol.

Technically, I'd like to perform a 5-lug swap with other calipers. Unfortunately, I don't have any spare knuckles. Or else being said, what knuckles with calipers fit CB apart from v6? I've looked for the list and it got me all confused. Also, I'd like to do a Rotor Over Hub conversion, since stock CB setup is pain in the ass to change the rotors. So dumb of Honda to do it that way.

You want 2000-2001 Accord v6 complete front knuckle. That means the knuckle, hub, rotor & brake caliper all together. You want these two years only. No yr 1999. You want v6 only. 2000-2001 are 5 lug, rotor over hub, and an inch bigger rotor. Its a way better setup and it bolts right on to the stock CB front suspension.

Hey folks, after a looooooooooooooooong break I've finally managed to get my hands down on the suspension and finally strip it down. The results are not so great, 15 stripped bolts and two control arms rusted to the sleeve and bolt.

The rear trailing arm bushing was shot on both sides, that could explain the driver sided rear wheel to be slightly bent inwards as someone stated in the first comments.








The rear calipers were BOTH shot. They'll be rebuilt, same as front ones.





Here's the complete pack.






In the meantime, I started cleaning the intake and I'll have EGR ports done too. New gaskets, for now. Next year? The complete rebuild, hopefully. The wet part is mostly built up carbon.

Hey there, yet again.

The suspension parts were stripped to bare metal using an angle grinder and sandpaper discs - ued 60 grit - NEVER do the same mistake as me. It did a great job on removing the rust and flakes, but it easily grinded the metal too.
Use 100 grit and light pressure on the angle grinder, don't you ever rush this job. The more you cut the metal, the weaker the part is. Nonethless, it's all rust-free and painted with
Alkyton -
Quote:
Effective anti-corrosion pigments provide long-lasting anti-corrosion protection. The product has very good adhesion to the corroded surface after manual cleaning. (color on rust, color to the roof)

ALKYTON covers one layer in the entire range of shades supplied.

The solvents used provide the product with excellent workability - with a brush application, a look of similar quality to that of spray can be achieved.

Modification of alkyd resins with urethanes gives the product long-lasting color stability and significantly prolongs the gloss.
The results are magnificent.






There are two more control arms mounted ont he car, but they're rusted to the sleeve in the bushing o I might cut the bolt out. The next big thing re the knuckles, I'm tumbling upon a lot of rust and rusted bolt on the shield and I can't take them out. When I get the out and paint the knuckles, I'll be here again with another post.

The next thing on the list are:

PU bushings on the front & some on rear
Coilover install
Brake caliper rebuild and paint
Silicone paste and copper anti seize - preferably 3M one - CAN'T BUY THOSE IN SLOVAKIA, FFS.
Braided brake lines.

If someone can help me deciding with the caliper color, that'd be great. The car is going to be blue, wheels will be black with silver polished lip. Blue, or black?

Rather than grinding you need to research into electrolysis. I did that to my stuff and it's amazing. I had a member on here introduce me to it and before then I was doing what you are doing. This is basically what re-manufactured parts are. It's easy to do, PM me if you want some more info.

Before:


After





I've done caliper brackets, and tricky stuff like seat rails.

Tell me. DIY things, how to set it up and what's needed. Sounds like a lot of fun!

I would definitely upgrade to the Prothane bushings if I were you while you had all the suspension stuff off the car. From the looks of it the rubber pieces look pretty worn.

Good progress with your car though man

Hey man,thanks for your feedback!

I won't be leaving those bushings in place, I will be doing a PU bushing set atleast on the front suspension. I don't want a "jumpy" back, since its way lighter than the front. So yeah, the complete overhaul is needed

Since the time's running out, I have sent first batch of body panels for painting. Can't wait for the result, the paint is freaking awesome.
