    Besides a DIY I seen long ago you're the only one I've seen who did the gauges built into the dash/cluster trim. Looks great, you should sell me that piece as I don't have the skills to do it :P

      I was honestly expecting less than that from all the posts I read through many forums so I'm really happy with it. Thanks!

      I want to guess on your new retrofit project but I may be wrong so I'll just wait and see what that will be used for. I've been wanting to do that instead of using the element fogs. Cb looks clean I read through your whole met I must say unique at its finest
      I don't know if I want to put cams in it. I want to play around outside of the motor, mainly because it's just so reliable right now. I'm not sure where I'm going to place the components yet and I still need another headlight. This weekend I'll probably order the projectors. Thank you very much for the kind words!

      Oddly enough I found the part on ebay. A little while back I saw someone selling one on FB, but I've also never seen anyone else with one in a running car. Weird.

        Picked this up. Now I just need to pick up a bare ash tray.

          Nice. That's mad JDM yo! So what do you plan on storing in your "Personal Box"?

              Lol. How'd you guess?

              Right now I just have coins in there. Depending on how durable the flocking is I may keep them in there or move them to the actual coin tray.

                  This current tune with the Skunk2 is what smoothed out VTEC. I'll have to stop by the dyno and get a picture of the differences in the graphs to get more specifics.

                    Alright, here we go.

                    Run 7 is about the earliest dyno pass of mine I can find. I'm not sure of the mods.
                    Run 5 was my most recent run before swapping the intake manifold.
                    Run 17 is my current tune.

                      Not much of an update but I decided to take out the balance shaft belt last night. I used to have a persistent resonating sound at about 2600rpm that is now gone and the car feels more smooth now. There's a very slight kick up in throttle response in lower rpms as well. I'm thinking one of the balance shafts was out of time with the rest of the motor.

                        I just wanted to tell you like how your build a coming along. Keep up the great work. It's definitely more extreme than I'm going with my build. I'm more subtle yet still aggressive. Time for me to pick up the pace again with my build. You leaving me in the dust.

                          Thank you man. In the earlier stages of my build I had just wanted to keep things subtle and not do anything I couldn't quickly and easily reverse. I was getting frustrated with trying to find a stock flush mount spoiler and that's when things changed. On the performance side of things, I've been chasing after Juice21 trying to match his pace before he makes his car faster. I've known him for so long that to be as fast as him has been a big goal for me.

                            The projectors I ordered finally came in from being back ordered. I figured out a mounting solution for the LED'S pods and I just have to cut the opening for the low beam a little larger to install the projectors. This is just my practice light so I don't run into problems with the good lights. Hopefully I'll have them finished soon.

                              Nice! You got the square lenses! I think they compliment the shape of the headlight really well. They have an interesting fall off on the far edges of the light beam pattern. This is likely due to the nature of the flattening of the four sides of sphere. The centers of the beams are per usual. Have fun chopping the shroud... That part sucked the most in my installation. Those windows will be interesting to see once it's all buttoned up.

                                Yeah, I mainly went with them because of the complimenting shape; that and I haven't seen a CB with them yet. Good info to know about the fall off. I should just be able to take the very top and very bottom to a belt sander to make the shrouds fit; they aren't off by much. I'm also probably one of the only people retrofitting a set of US spec headlights. I may turn around and sell these to finance a set of EDM lights.
