What did you do to your sedan today?

I know I know I know, H-T has the same thread. Well I can honestly say I stole the idea from H-T, but I feel like we deserve the right to have a thread like this on here. If I'm wrong, then I'm sure the admins will let me know lol. So I will gladly start this thread and hope it goes far. Just trying to keep the site fresh and funky  Very Happy .

Today, I cleaned the interior and got all my McDonald's trash out lol. Then I inspected the brakes, learning that I need to change them in the VERY near future. Cleaned the rear , whipped down the center garnish and tail lights keeping them delicious and so glossy it looks like they are leaking water!


WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR EF TODAY???
zacattack

Nice nice. I love these threads. I can honestly say that I did nothing to mine today  Sad

Nice thread, did my front and rear strut bars  Very Happy
EF4lyf3

Why thank you sir.
Geo-93

Today I washed her and cleaned up the interior and polish the lips
EF4lyf3

What product do you use to clean your interior? and the lips? ive been using a black sock on my hand and some armoral for the lips. Gets good coverage and it gets them nice and glossy! Just not to sure with interior.
EF4lyf3

Today. Im going to the DMV to get her re-registered...CLASSIC ROD EXEMPTION FTMFW!!!! Means no more smogs for the rest of my cars life!!! Its funny that not many people know they can do this and get around these damn emissions problems.
4dred6

Order two tires  Very Happy
EF2dudesocal

Moved it across the street for the street sweeper
EF4lyf3

Just changed the brakes. No more shakes thank god!!! Now I need to figure out why my side markers and my corners have no power...
jmanwantsboost

I started her up just to let her run. Not gonna let her sit just because the trannys a dick. (see what I did there Cool )
EF4lyf3

Hahah that was hilarious.
EF4lyf3

Waiting for the postman to bring my hoodbra! Trying to be patient here lol. Gonna check the wiring problem then clean and detail her up ...can't wait
4dred6

EF4lyf3

Sweet I need to hit the junkyard to get some extra stuff here and there as well
EF4lyf3

Fixed my corner and sidemarker problems. Installed my hood bra and whipped my wheels down. She's getting the guys. Now all I need are my wheels new bumper and new fogs and were good!
jmanwantsboost

I polished my tails today, and checked out my shift linkage. Looks not messed up.

EF4lyf3

Getting a smog and getting the new registration for sure today, if the DMV isnt gay again that is. gonna buy some tail buffer also and get my tails as shinny as Jman did.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Bought brand new windshield molding and a hazard light switch.
HondaJunkie

Found some black carpet from a ef hatch and another armrest and some headliner moldings.
jmanwantsboost

Buffed the tails with a home made buffer, fixed my center console clock, fixed the broken passenger side vent, and replaced my reverse lights.
88sedan

Put on my Oem Clear Cornerlights, changed my oil and vacummed my car today Very Happy
EF4lyf3

Found out one of my side marker bulbs are bad -_- of course it would go out after I fixed the damn issue. Got the registration done, and installed a snazzy new in dash stereo. Love the sound output and feels good to have radio again.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

What kind of head unit did you put in?

I just found out that the haz switch is discontinued. Boo
EF4lyf3

Sorry to hear. I can go to the junkyard and get a million and restore them! I'm gonna start doing that with the center consoles , they are discontinued as well and so are the rear bumpers.

I put a valor in dash, 7in, clears the ac control unit and everything. I'm gonna get a backup camera for her soon as well
EF Sedan Enthusiast

As soon as I get a house with a big enough garage, I plan to raid all of the local junk yards on a regular basis for mint ED parts.  Then I'll start selling them online.
EF4lyf3

I was actually going to do that! All of the parts that can be found easily at junkyards are becoming discontinued. Selling the parts online after holding them for about a year and restoring them will bring in some good money i believe.
4dred6

Received two tires  Very Happy  prolly gonna get them mounted Thursday
EF4lyf3

hoping to get my lip soon and my Special edition sticker should be here today...cant wait to put it on  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy
HondaJunkie

Got blazed and ripped the back interior out to shampoo and clean and replaced a couple interior pillar plastics.
EF4lyf3

Pritty dang essiting if joo ass mee (nacho libre accent)
EF4lyf3

Got my new Special edition sticker in the mail yesterday so of course i had to give her the tramps stamp. Looks great but i could have done better. Problem was getting the old sticker adhesive stuff off.
jmanwantsboost

I attempted to remove the crappy old center garnish decal off my crappy center garnish. I got it off,but left some nicks that resemble the shape of the sticker :/. Good thing I'll replace the old cracked one soon enough.
89 LX SOHC ZC

All you guys cleaning and polishing your tail lights got me off my lazy a** and I finally went out and polished the WD 40 stains off of my corner markers and tail lights from when my sedan got stolen a year and a half ago .
4dred6

Thanks man ive been puting it off for a long time not a lot of motivation here.
EF4lyf3

I'm glad this was a motivation brotha!!! That's my aim for this thread
EF4lyf3

Driving on the freeway yesterday and hit pretty bad traffic. Stop and go stop and go. All of a sudden my hood starts emitting a steam and a lot of it. I jump 6 wholes lanes not caring about the horns blaring at me, jumped out my car and popped my hood. My rear hose connecting the block to the head looked like it had been punctured. So with no tools I. My trunk do to recently cleaning, I broke out my EF mcguyver moves and fixed that hose with some electrical tape, pieces if a beany that I shredded and more electrical tape. Then a guy in a hatch was moving slow past me and asked if I needed Nything. I said coolant and he gladly gave me a brand new bottle!
4dred6

Nice, ef love right there
nanotech

Me too  Crying or Very sad
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Love hearing about the EF love.

I installed the power folding mirrors and prepared it for more work tomorrow.
HondaJunkie

Drilled holes and finally installed the crx si rear sway bar and installed all new light bulbs in everything. It lights up all sorts of purdy now.
jmanwantsboost

I bought her a new tranny and fresh flywheel for 55 bucks. Dude said the gears felt shorter than his dx tranny but the casting stamp says it's standard as well. Either way I'm only a front motor mount and clutch kit from driving her again. Although the clutch is good I could just buy new bearings.

Do I hear a "sticky this thread" coming my way? Lol

Today I'm gonna clean her up and get ready for EOW.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

This thread is so hot right now, there's no need for a sticky.
EF4lyf3

The thread is a hit?? That's what you mean right? Lol
jmanwantsboost

attempted to clean my new tranny ,but got paranoid I'd get water in the diff and my brush lost it's bristles. So I gave up lol.

What setup u running?
EF4lyf3

4dred6

Nice
nanotech

Bought my cv/drive shaft, lca, radius rod, new parker (didn't fit ffff), rear facelift garnish plate (one I have incoming is faded etc so this one is mint condition).
Jace fixed my park light using cable ties since the new one didn't fit thanks to being slightly different shape.

Will be fixing car tomorrow and getting it back on the road again. I'm looking for a clean mint condition body manual sedan at the moment and leaning to selling this one back to my sister, then I can put all my crazy bits on the new one. I've been really loving burgundy ones lately.
Unfortunately my paint is a little far gone in place and there are a lot of dints and misaligned panels, bits of rust underneath here and there. So it will never be clean. But I have a plan lol.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Glad to hear you're going to get her fixed and good luck with your plan. Very Happy
EF4lyf3

Tax check came in so iwill be purchasing some goodies hopefully.
im thinking an LSV swap
Diamond racing wheels
a nice tune up and gasket change for the old motor ( that way i have a backup)
and a nice wash. pics will be up from the EOW cruise at about sunday night to monday morning depending on how everything goes- Stay tuned gentlemen!
urbsallday

Added a custom amber lit oem clock! Looks great Very Happy
EF Sedan Enthusiast

I need to change my clock to amber so it'll match my cluster.
EF4lyf3

a write up on this would be stuppendous hahah. Ive been wanting to do this with mine but havent quite figured out how i will achieve the result. amber bulbs,correct?
nanotech

I replaced the busted lca, drive shaft and what not. It's all fitted to the car but found out my sway bar end link is bent and needs replacing.
The caster rod is also way out of alignment and I still need a new hub nut fffffff. So today was a bit of a two step fowards one step back day.

In other news I tinted my parker lights amber. When I get around to it I'll upload some pics of progress but right now there isn't a lot to show. Should be on the road again soon though.
MacDubois

I filled the sedan with parts at the junkyard, nice headlight, d16z6 head, IM and fuel rail.  

Just need to find a few more bits and finish cleaning the garage, then it will be auto to manual and minime time.

I have an oil filter wrench that looks like an odd pair of channel locks. But I tried to use it to help install it and almost crushed it lol. But I just scraped some paint. All is well.
HondaJunkie

I went for a little cruise it was 70 degrees today so perfect weather. I put my dash and whole interior back together and found all my B pillar and door sill plastics in black finally so im only missing carpet now.
