Cafe - Stop in and say hello

How's it going?
Travvv

Not too bad. Over this cold weather! How about you?
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Not too bad.  Enjoying this peaceful day at home.

If you're viewing this, just say hello.  This can be a general place to converse about whatever.
Proper282

Sorry you are stuck in the cold Travv.... Here in golden state it's been in the 70's and 80's for the past few weeks. Up until today that is. Just got a bit of rain.


Hey jon, do you have any info on Eibach yet? I've been trolling other forums, but no word yet. Hoping to get 2 spots in the VIP this year. I plan on having the LX up and running with a fresh coat of paint on it by then Smile And my friend just put the order in for a C5 that we'll be dropping in his rhd EG6



I like this lounge thing too. Kinda like the sedan squad thread on h-t just a little easier to keep up with (hopefully lol)
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Not sure and sadly I won't be attending Eibach again for a long time since I've moved to Houston.

That's the plan for this thread.
Proper282

that blows! you should caravan out with some of the texas boys!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yeah I will once I have something worthy enough to show off.
Sancho

Hey guys. Hope everyone had a great weekend! I picked up a fresh pair of Nike's, and my own welding helmet so I don't have to use my Dad's. I'm really excited about tomorrow as it will be the first time I get to Tig weld. I thought I would've been welding sooner than three weeks into the semester,but my instructor has been teaching us alot.
Travvv

Yeah I'm so tired of cold weather. We were apparently supposed to get a RIDICULOUS amount of snow and ice tonight but nothing yet.

Picked up a rear disc setup this weekend in Chicago.
Got those all torn down to be rebuilt tonight.

Interview for a new job tomorrow! Pretty pumped!

Sancho- Good luck man! I don't like tig very much. I need to do it more though.

Proper- I want that warm weather!!! haha

Enthusiast- I'm glad to see you're looking for another sedan! Hopefully you find a clean one!
89civicracer

Thankfully Florida has not gotten and snow. Smile I think it was the only state that has not... but this weekend we are driving up north to go snowboarding... so..i will see and play in the snow for a long weekend... Laughing  Laughing
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Have fun Sancho.  That's one trade I've always wanted to learn.

Good luck Travv on the job and stay warm and safe in the weather.  I heard Chicago is supposed to get something crazy like 3 inches an hour tomorrow through Friday?

I'm with you John.  Houston hasn't gotten any snow yet.  I do miss the Los Angeles weather though.
Travvv

Well this weather is ridiculous.
I'm in central Indiana and we are supposed to get 2 inches of ice and 4 to 12 inches of snow or something like that.
Tomorrow should be interesting.
I hate winter. -_-

Stay safe on the roads guys!
Proper282

Good luck on the interview tomorrow. What is the position?
Travvv

The interview was actually today.
It's just a warehouse job at Tractor Supply.
I've been laid off since September of last year unfortunately.
So I'm just trying to find something steady now.
Thanks guys!
Sancho

My day went great except I couldn't find a chick I've been meaning to ask out. I blew it last monday by only having one seat:evil: in the 4dr

I had a blast tig welding! Somewhat literally....
I was doing great autonomous(I believe aka fusion welding), but then I started using the filler rod  Crying or Very sad  I only got about 10 minutes with the filler rod, and it didn't go that well yet I feel that I learned a bunch!

Travvv- Sucks to hear about being laid off. I hope you nailed the interview.
Travvv

Sancho- Thanks man! Glad you had a good time with Tig. Fusing is so nice! haha I'm terrible with filler too. Guess we just need more practice!
Proper282

Yeah with the tig you just habe to keep at it. I haven't had much time on a tig but it is fun. Practice is key. My bro in law welds for a living and can lay a better bead with my Harbor Freight welder usimg flux core than I can using the miller 210 mig we have at work lol! It all comes with experience

Shocked
Sancho

We're breaking records!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yep, I think the previous was 42 in August.
Travvv

Well at least this shitty weather is good for setting records! haha
Sancho

Hey guys.
I partied way too much this weekend and it really affected my welding. I honestly ground half of my tungsten off because I kept screwing up! I'm off to sleep now after abit of jager Laughing
89ef2

Talkin about records.... I can't sleep but I can honestly say 117 people online and I'm the only one registered online... I feel special
89ef2

Im sorry 121.... phone is slow sometimes.... still a record
EF Sedan Enthusiast

121, wow  Shocked

How's everyone doing?
89ef2

I don't know about you in houston... but dallas has sucked this past weekend with all the weather.... plus its suppost to snow tonite and tomorrow
C-Rex

Hey from the land of rain!!

Aint been too active lately but hope to be back on regular now as I have one less car to worry about.. Over the last 2 months we had really bad snow and ice (by Irelands standards) and managed to kill off my RX7 and a telephone pole Embarassed

More time for the EFs now Twisted Evil
Sancho

Nor Cal weather has been perfect lately!!! Today was windy, but I can't complain at all Cool

C rex- Do you have any pictures of the said meeting(rx-7 and telephone pole)? I hope you are okay.
Travvv

Sancho- Not cool man! Smile  It's supposed to be unbelievably cold here the next few days. Plus we still have all this damn snow and ice. Haha I can't wait for spring to get here for some halfway warm weather!
C-Rex

BEFORE:






DURING-This is the pole split in half by the drivers side door




AFTER Sad





See the sedan sneaking in on the last pic Razz


I got out very lucky from it alot of bruising to the right of my face and 1 stitch Rolling Eyes  (Side impact hitting a padded rollcage)




Not bad for an evenings drive Embarassed
89ef2

That has to suck...
Proper282

Dude that sucks about the rx7! Glad you made through ok. The cage probably helped a bit. Glad to see you posting here again though. Your sedan is just beautiful. Hope to see some updates on it soon.



O another note, I got my spots secured for Eibach 2011! Looking forward to seeing what rolls out this year. I'm going more prepared this year and will have lawn chairs and an ice chest so we can hang all day  Very Happy
Sancho

I'm pissed off! Today just wasn't my day, but I found out the hard way. I ruined the paint on my freshly painted hx's, wasn't able to get the intake manifold gasket I want/need, and got no sign offs in tig(2  3/4 hrs of welding).

Woah dude, I'm real sorry to hear that and amazed you made your way out of that ok.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Wow, glad you walked out of that one.

Sorry to hear about your misfortunes Sancho.


Wish I could make Proper282.  Take lots of pix!
C-Rex

Ah Ill get over it breaking it is gonna make more back anyway so better off in a wierd way Confused

Any exciting sedan news with anyone today? Really need to get my arches done.. Rain is killing it Embarassed
~Sp33~

I walk past it every morning on my way out the door. That's pretty much it. lol. Once a week i'll go wash it.
Proper282

Setting up to get some more work done...

It's nice when the artist is family and lives with you lol!

And yes my legs are skinny and white lol!

Same as me so without the washing part Embarassed

I will go do something with it today though cause its not raining and might even get some photo evidence..


282: Man that looks as if its a sore palace to get one done.. Thanking of getting one to the side of my lower leg alright though
Proper282

Lol yeah the lining across the shin bone was pretty rough. But other than that it was not too bad. On my other leg I have one more to the side and around my calf. That was pretty uncomfortable to sit through
EF Sedan Enthusiast

That's pretty gangster!

Little update on my thread.. Cool
Bought a Suzuki Escudo jeep friday as a run around so busy making the most of the bad weather digging up fields in 4x4 Smile
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Glad you pulled it out and snapped a few pictures.
89civicracer

OUCH!

So, i was taking the sedan out this past weekend, cause she needs to be loved on now and again, and one thing i noticed was that there are not too many sedans driving around.... Crazy how it feels when you look at all the cars and do not see an 88-91 sedan anywhere...
Crying or Very sad ..... What's it like in your neck of the woods?
EF Sedan Enthusiast

In Los Angeles, they were everywhere.  Here in Houston, not so much but I do notice them while driving.  

I'm tempted to make a sign that says "Want to sell?" and include my number because I've seen a few very clean ones around here.
C-Rex

Here in Ireland they have been rare enough for a few years now..

You used to see the odd one now and then but whats there now is usually owned by young lads getting on the "Old School" buzz here at the minute..

Just about 3years ago I paid €400 for mine and was very clean they are going for up on €1000 easily now for totally standard ones although bargains can be got with some nice Jap Imports floating around still
Sancho

Where I live there are two old ladies that drive around in mint lx's. I'm tempted to buy their car or get them to put me in their will for it! Where I go to school there are a few on like 17's that are beat up really badly.

Anybody got special plans for tonight? I've got tig welding tonight so that messes up my valentines day Sad
C-Rex

Im working 7pm to 7am so that ruins any chance of Valentines night action  Laughing

Does mean I get to fcuk around on the computer for the night though...
89civicracer

Nice, well, i guess around me the sedan is an oddity.

As far as Valentines.. going out to eat.. that's about it..
Been together for 10 years now, so it is almost like a regular day.. Smile
Sancho

Congratulations on 10 years! I have trouble keeping one for 10 weeks......
C-Rex

10years you must get some sort of medal for that Laughing

Going on 5 myself cant face change at this stage so just stick with what I know Rolling Eyes

Waiting on photobucket uploading sedan pics Id be quicker mailing them to everyone here Evil or Very Mad
89ef2

10 years? Wow... I've been with my girl for 2 years and its gone by quick.... I did the usual... flowers and candy in the morning and when she got home I gave her some earings.... as my day went along I was searching craigslist as my daily routine and found a pair of 205/50/15 tires and that was her present to me.... after we ate then we went to go meet up for the tires... pretty awesome valentines!!!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I'm a lucky dude.  My wife doesn't care about Vday and she's allergic to roses Razz  We've been together for 8 years and married for almost 2, so yeah.
C-Rex

Nice one saves you making excuses Laughing


89ef2: Pretty sweet valentines day? So what tyres did ya get?
89ef2

I think they were just some khumos or generic brand but I really just needed some spare ones.... best valentines present I ever got!!!
89civicracer

I need to get some tires for my stockies... they are sooooo old and dryrotted... I was thinking of driving around on the stock ones for a while.. then switch to the MR5's for shows and shit... But overall, keep the car stock looking....  :0
EF Sedan Enthusiast

That's not a bad idea.
C-Rex

Do ye get stock hubcaps over there too?

Was thinking of having them on mine too for parking it up on, any wheels would look good on your car though... Need pics Cool
Sancho

Four day weekend ftw!!!!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

So anyone have any fun last weekend?  I hit up Vegas (along with Mexico and Phoenix).
EF2CP

Last weekend for me was pretty chill. Tacoma, Wa isnt really poppin during the winter time. Spring and summer is when everything goes down. But Vegas and Phoenix sounds hella fun. My mom lives in Vegas so April and May Ill be there.

EF Sedan Enthusiast: What you doin in all those places just for a weekend? You drive an EF annnnd you got a Private Jet? HAHA
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I wish I had either, haha.  Flew to Torreon, MX for work (hand carry) Thursday night.  Then flew to Vegas on Friday, drove to Phoenix on Sunday and back to Houston on Monday.

Vegas is awesome though.  Used to roll out there all the time when I lived in LA.

Oh really ?

My mother and I are from Torreon Coahuila  Very Happy I was brought to the USA when I was 3 months old so I don't know much about it, but I wonder how there EF scene is over there  Shocked
EF2CP

Thats a lot of traveling in a four day span. Yeah vegas is legit. Im stoked to be goin in april for my bday. And in may for a race. It will be legit. You should try to make your way out there in May. My buddy races for speedfactory here in town. and there is a big even in the end of may.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Maybe, but I'll be in Long Beach for the Gran Prix in April.  We'll see how the traveling goes.
EF2CP

For sure I got family about an hour away from there. I wanna Take the EF on its first road trip this summer.
C-Rex

Just payed the final payment on my holiday today 14 days in Koh Samui Thailand and 4 days stop over in Dubai on the way home... Im crazy broke because of it but gonna be so worth it Cool

Oh any my laptop fcuked up again so cant upload pics to my thread until its fixed again Rolling Eyes
EF Sedan Enthusiast

That sucks about the lap top but the trip sounds awesome.
89ef2

That trip sounds pretty ridiculous.....
EF Sedan Enthusiast

How's everyone doing?  Anyone do anything fun for St. Patty's Day?  Hope no one is directly effected by the events in Japan.
C-Rex

Ha Ha Pattys Day.. Its known as St Paddys day here

Anyway I was stuck in work last night it looked like the city was'nt as busy as other years which is unusual really cause were the ones who shoud be celebrating the most Confused

Recession eh??


Yea Japan is crazy the town we stayed in last year Nihon Matsu was badly effected by the Quake (ruining the Ebisu Circuit) and now the cloud from the Nuclear Plant is effecting them too.. Crazy World!!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

R.I.P. Taylor Anderson  Crying or Very sad
EF Sedan Enthusiast

So anyone doing anything exciting these days?
ME-B-N-ME

RAGE!
89civicracer

Well, been doing some things to the car recently.. Right now she is out of commission... Back on stock steelies Smile Gotta fix my windshield, and a few other things that are bothering me... Beside that... just working hard...
88browncow

It was a buddies 21st bday this weekend,  soooo a lot of drinking happened.
C-Rex

Here in Koh Samui was going down the street in a bus earlier and saw a really nice EF sedan if I pass it again Ill get pics but the place is a bit hectic at the minute with Thai New year water fights!! Laughing
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Nice, pix would be good.  

I had a lot of fun in ATL this weekend drinking with one of my wifes sorority sisters Wink
JAP SEDAN MAN

how much fun? the kind that will get u in trouble  Twisted Evil
C-Rex

Was just passed by Truck with an Elephant on the back of it so the Sedan is now the second most interesting vehicle I was passed by Laughing

Jon sounds like that could be dangerous Very Happy
EF Sedan Enthusiast

My 21st is next Wednesday, I'm lookin forward to getting fershnoockered legally  Laughing
C-Rex

Ouch 21 to be legal!!! Lucky its 18 in Ireland Laughing

Enjoy it dude Cool
90EFSedan

Restless.... Can't sleep.. Hoping my Nova sells in the next couple days. I found a nice graphite grey (factory paint, not sure what its actually called) 91 LX.. All stock.. It has a few bad rust spots in the usual locations. Still a really nice car overall. Only thing that really kills me is it has the same crummy 1.5 my red one does.. I want MPFI damnit! The parts are impossible to find around here  Confused

Also got a set of meshies lined up if I can get the money real quick.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Sweet and have fun celebrating your 21st.
EFitREI

Haha.. i was like "Omgoodness your BDAY is on 420?!" but then i
reread the part that says next wednesday.. wait, whats 420?? x_x  Cool
The weather in Cali is soo weird.. it was hot at disneyland all day yesterday
and then i wake up this morning, and its freezing like crazy outside..
shoulda been like that at disneyland..
90EFSedan

I used to celebrate my bday a week early, lol, I got over that crap fast though.. Not worth the risk/drama/expense. Plus, I'm a working man and a father now.. If I came home doped up my wife would kick me in the dick so hard my sons son would be sterile.
EFitREI

Hahaha!! ouch.. haha!! yupp thats family!! Well Early Happy Birthday have an awesome one!!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I appreciate your stand on it but just because you have a family doesn't mean you have to stop toking Wink  Just gotta know your limits (kinda like drinking but there's the whole illegal part)........ man I miss Cali.
90EFSedan

Yeah I can see your side too, the main reason I see it the way I do is my wife is very straight and narrow. Her mom (that whole side of her family actually) is nothin but druggies. My 'good ole days' were over before I got with her, and shes made it very clear just in idle chit chat and what not that things would come to a quick dirty end if I started back on any of my old habits.

Which, I'm a punk bitch, I still blame my older sister for introducing me to many of those habits back in the day  Laughing Not to say it was her fault I kept the habits up, but yeah, definitely her fault for showing me  Razz
EFitREI

Lol, My first time was at Disneyland xD.. Man was that insane..
Felt like everyone were staring at me.. felt sooo paranoid but good
Wait, sooo theres not a lot of EFs here in Cali?! Awhh man.. Im
moving to Vegas in a few months.. Yes!! Independency!!
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I can understand that.  My wife used to not condone it.

There are a ton of EF's in Cali.
EFitREI

The meets i go to, theres always like 2 or 3 other EFs.. while
theres 84325394 euros or 240s or other hondas.. People around
the LA area dont fix their EF up =[.. Getting lonely here..

How Texas streets?? I was supposed to move there like 5 years
ago, but i was saying Cali is better..
90EFSedan

I know how you feel.. We just had a joke of a car show here in town.. All that really came was hopped up hillbilly trucks and a few tuners.

No bullshit, I've probably only seen a half dozen EF sedans in my area. Probably another dozen EF hatchies. And almost all the sedans are run down pieces of shit like mine is currently.

Theres one really nice 88-89 that lives like two blocks away from one of my friends, it's slammed, on 15" Works, tinted out.. Never seen under the hood but the exterior/interior is pretty nice. It passed me on the interstate one day soundin sexy as hell. Wasn't all ricey and raspy like my chainsaw.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

There are a lot of quality sedans in Cali, trust me.

Houston streets aren't good and the sedan scene is small.
EFitREI

I mean like are the streets empty.. California streets are sooo packed now.. Back in the 90's it was fine to go cruising and have a
quick adrenaline rush.. But now, theres just tooo many cars on the
road, its hazardous.. oh and law enforcement here is beyond
tight.. And the roads are messed up like cracked and potholes
everywhere.. People think i drive drunk, but im dodging potholes lol.

BTW HAPPY 420 Guys Very Happy  Very Happy
88browncow

Here in Wisconsin, the whole ef scene is super small. I feel like I am the only sedan in the area as well. There are a couple more, but they are hack jobs that look and drive like hell. We have a nice cruising road that is usaully packed with nice cars on fridays though. Lots of Hondas, quality used to be better than it is now. Theres an old guy who rolls around in his Ferrari F40 a lot and he gets followed by a 1400 hp Supra or Viper or GTR, depending on the night. Law enforcement is tight on cruising but they dont hassle you for anything else.
FlatTireRacer

I roll out every now and then with a local crew I have here (Ft Wth, TX). Feel kinda outta place though because I am the only EF. LOL! CRX, Hatch, sedan, nothin. I am the only one.  Sad
