    Well......... I did finish painting the bay again. Did the results turn out as good as the first time, no. But it looks good. I'm being too perfect on it, so we'll leave it for now. But some lessons learned on painting...

    - clean your gun in between coats if needed, rather than chance paint drying in the gun which causes splatter down the road
    - clear coat will dry/gel in between coats if left in the gun. It's almost impossible to get rid of a gelled up gun afterwards
    - a more expensive gun would be better
    - a 5gallon air tank sucks and you have to wait a lot for the tank to fill, even with the gun set to 25psi max

    So we cleaned up, and covered her up. On to other items:

    1. Clean turbo manifold and apply cast iron paste to keep it from rusting
    2. Tape off and clean engine, skunk2 intake manifold. Paint both sides of engine

    Love this manifold. robust!

    After



    I also have some new toys to put on. Can't say I've ever changed came gears before, but it looks fairly easy. May break the nuts loose first, but just have to find out where the cam gear locks are and how that works. But glad to have these, saved up for more than a year for these too. Oh, also got an AEM fuel filter, but not quite what I was expecting..

        I think in the end it will just be you and I left on this site

        It was this. Not that this tells you anything as they don't put codes on their cans. I had a lighter one, said nope, took it back and got the middle darkness which is this can. And used very light coats.

                Thanks! I bought it off a member on here, and it has no brand name. But it rocks! Decent welds too. It looks like someone copied the goautoworks unit.

                    Thanks man.

                    Fuckn fuck fucker. Was all excited to do cam gears today. Went to install them and realized they are the wrong part! Some ass-fuck put B series cams in H22 boxes, so ...... utter fail! GRrrrrrrrrrrrrr

                      That’s not cool. Can they be exchanged?

                        That sucks. The B-series gears are the same as the H23A1 non-VTEC, but not the H22A.
                        My Members' Ride Thread - It's a marathon build, not a sprint. But keep me honest on the update frequency!

                          Already started. Feel bad for the person who was at the post office as I was not in a good mood.

                          Ya. They are also thicker. I was so excited to get those done today as I've never done timing belts or cam gears. Now I'm so pissed off. And i can't work on the car pissed off, more things just go wrong...

                          Ahh well. I'll paint the old ones and put them back on.

                          The other item on the list was the AEM fuel filter I bought which (unfortunately) is the size of a paint can). But it has 10an female fittings on the end. I don't think they make an adapter to allow the OEM line nut/end, so I think they want you to run a new braided line with AN fittings on the ends. I think......

                            Best option for fuel filters that I have found for OEM fittings is the AEM HF fuel filter PN: 25-200BK. I used a red one for years. Paper filter cartridge is changeable.

                              That looks like a 10AN fitting too. So how are you going from the OEM banjo bolt to the 10AN?


                              And don't work on your car when you are pissed off at the world! This is the balancer tensioner bolt which broke off, and then a drill bit which broke off in the hole. I just wanted to throw the drill at the wall as hard as i could....







                              I did get it out. All caused by this fucking thing. Used for the first time since I bought it several months ago. And the dam thing doesn't click! I even tried it on 30'lbs/tq on a wheel lug nut and nothing. It does nothing different when it's set to 30 or 150. I don't get it.

                                I'm pretty sure that I used the stock bottom fitting and I bought an "OEM replacement" braided stainless line from Summit that had the banjo bolt.
