Thanks man! Not too partial on the gold wheels though. I picked them up because they were the style I was after. Figured I could change the color later, to white of course! Smile

Ok, question... I have looked through our archives and found the article pertaining to installing the rear sway bar from a CRX onto the sedan. The text is decent, but all if the pictures have been deleted or removed. Does anyone, by chance, know of a link to a article that contains pictures? I'm not a stupid man but when you put text down that strongly needs support from pictures, and there are no pictures to be had, it makes for a difficult day figuring out where things go. Any help would be appreciated. Btw, I have already hit up Google and am tired of searching through a bunch of FAQ pages that go nowhere.

Was hoping to do my rear sway bar install this weekend. Looks like the lovely Texas weather had other plans in mind.

Not sure were I got the photos I studied but the rear sway bar install is super easy.  I drilled up from the bottom through the existing holes and then I expanded the holes in the trunk floor enough to drop a flanged bolt and socket through and then I mounted the bracket with locknuts.  The end links are the easy part I just hope it clears your exhaust mine rattles from time to time.

Thanks for the info. I'll be getting the axle-back redone after the first of the year, so with everything already in place, there shouldn't be much to worry about.

Thanks! That is the only pro photograph I have ever seen of my car. I give props to #kerrygphotography for throwing the lense on my dirty girl! This picture was taken at the Honda Fetish meet where I got to meet EF Sedan Enthusiast before he moved out of state. That was the meet that the parking lot started to melt on us! Yeesh!

Holy smokes, it's been too long!!

So shortly after doing the rear control arms, the sedan crept over a 1/4 of a million miles.


I know not much of a accomplishment for some, but it has never happened to me before. also had to start prepping for a clutch swap. Mine was starting to slip. So I decided to lighten a flywheel...  Shocked




Threw in a new Exedy O.E. replacement...


Traded off the white Fugen's for some Avid1 wheels




Also attended a few Toy Drives in December!




I finally broke down, and while the weather gave us a little break, I swapped the head on my single-cam to my polished and ported head!




Back together!


She runs great too!
I borrowed a set of steelies from a friend so I could start repainting the gold wheels... Gold is not my color when it comes to wheels...


The plan was to do the centers in gloss black and then the lips in white.


Plans got halted shortly after when we got into a tight spot with money.

So I put trim rings on the steelies...


I was about to start discussing negotiations on buying these....


When tax returns finally came in and I hustled my ass down bought a brand spanking new set of Enkei 92's!!










Also had a lucrative offer on some B-series blocks... What might I be doing with these???


Also picked one of these up!




Then my exhaust finally took a crap...

Thanks guys! I've wanted a set of 92's since I put the car on the road.

Well I have another huge update and this one should get everyone caught up!

It got cold back in January and we actually got to see some snow this year! Real snow, not that sleety shit!




Shortly after these pics were taken, things started changing in my life. Pretty serious things. While I was getting my entirely overpriced exhaust attached to my car, the owner of the machine shop I worked at called me and commenced to cuss me up one side and down the other, simply because I was not at the shop working. I tried to explain to him multiple times that the cat clogged and I needed to resolve the issue in order to drive the car. He wasn't hearing any of it. He didn't care. Well needless to say I was not about to suffer that disrespect. I left the exhaust shop and headed straight to another machine shop and began negotiations on getting a job at their location. Another month went by before my boss and I had one more altercation and I quit and went to the other shop the next day. It's been a little rocky adjusting to the gap in pay but my wife and I are starting to pull through it! Before I left AMS I got all the machining done on the head for the B16 and everything cleaned up and ready for the block to be honed out. I had to wait a little while before I brought it up to my new boss, but he was very enthusiastic to have me bring my block down and start assembling the motor.

Got the vc machined before I left AMS also... Mmmmmm Sexay!




Picked up hood bra for $40 as well!


Took this on the day I decided to leave AMS. I had to get out of the shop that afternoon, so I went and had lunch at the Museum


Uh-Oh! Pahrts!


The finished ports for the B16...




Finally swapped out the trunk. The clear is all still on the new one! LOL!


Put my EX and Honda badges back on as well!


Had to give her a wash before the Honda Fetish meet!




Little peek at the exhaust!










Duh-duh-DUUUUUHHHHHHHH!!!! The B16 starts to come together






Picked up some adjustable timing gears from a friend!








Also scored this beauty! An original, A/C compatible, 4-1 DCSports header! This should fantastic paired with the port matched head!

Holy update batman!  Hope the new job is working out for you.  Did you take another trophy home from Honda Fetish?  Love the progress.  Keep up the good work.

Nope. No trophy this time. Hell, didn't even see so much as a pro photograph this time. New job is going fair. About to start doing some porting at home. I actually miss that crap! Lol!

A little bit of a update for you guys! Picked up some Wagon skirts from Boosted EF2 not too long ago. Threw them on to hide those hideous dents in the rockers where someone dropped the car off a lift.. The results were much better than I expected!


Dah-tah! No more dents (that you can see anyways)!


Also, drug my transmission up to work and started cleaning it up a bit.


And picked up some dress-up hardware for the header!


If you can't tell, progress has kind of ground to a halt. Like progress moves like a tectonic plate. in sporadic spurts. LOL! Oh well, slow progress is better than no progress, I suppose! Till next time! Hoping to order the clutch assembly this weekend. (If my wife's van will stop breaking!)

So the B16 has been put on the back burner for the moment. Plans of buying a house have come into the equation for my family and I. But in the meantime, I've been really getting proactive about making the sedan more presentable for the HF Nation meet in October! Since I don't think a lot of you follow me on Facebook, I'll give you some sneek peaks here! (feel privileged)



Electron Blue Pearl (EBP)


It's dark in these next pics, but that's ok. I want to keep a little bit of mystery about this until it's completely finished




BostedEF2 parted with a set of rainguards that didn't exactly fit right on his car. I took em to work and modified them. Made them more presentable.

Some in process pics I took...




Refinished the front filler and grill piece!




Finally got to refinishing the front lip! Hopefully the paint doesn't go all freaky flakey this time! I did a different prep on it this time *finger-crossed*




Still have some touching up to do, but it's almost complete!!

The D16 attempted suicide last night by trying to jettison the crank pulley bolt while I was headed home! Luckily I was able to pull over before the pulley came off, but not before destroying the crank key and damaging the keyway. Still, I was able to get a new key and able to slide it back in. It's almost like the car itself is becoming impatient of the B16 swap! Just a couple more months!
