    Always tinkering with something it seems. But I'm in Canada, so each winter is a major project or upgrade for Sally. As I get older and the parts get rarer things seem to slow down though....

    Really one of the bummers of working on an older car. Everything is scratched, dented, .... used. Nothing is new and you can't bring the parts back to OEM quality. The past few months I keep thinking ........ " where are all the parts....!?!". I'm amazed at the parts I use to see on ebay for a cb7 are now gone...

    - Greddy lips
    - Xenon parts
    - Digital climate controls
    - Intersection lights
    - One piece headlights
    - One piece tail lights
    - .......

    In fact, I think we are at the age where there is only ONE set of one piece headlights and clear tails left online! Same with G-Square grills etc. Too bad the price of carbon fiber hoods hasn't come down yet.

    Yaaa.





    And......... fail. Big fail. That's about $300 and 8 months of work down the drain now :\ Dropped it by accident.

    Thought I could use these but the lenses are different. Ripped it apart anyways, but with the no lines and black epoxy..naaaaa


    Clear lens on EDM clears. Weird...

    93 SE Moldings. You will have to repaint them obviously, but I think the paint process helped these to not have the rust swell. The passenger front molding snapped off its little stud due to it being exposed to the elements. You'll have to use mounting tape or epoxy a small stud/screw to rectify the situation.

    Perfect! Let me PM ya.

    I meant to follow up. I can grab those moldings and ship them to NS. I have no idea what shipping might cost though.

    Yep. Looking for 4 door mouldings. Mine are rusted like the car in the junk yard. I'm jealous, here we get a cb7 in the junk yard maybe once a year and this is what they look like
