I'm not sure I follow? All the old engine hardware was tarnished because the car it came out of had been driven through the heavily salted Ontario winters.

I'm using all new OEM hardware directly from Honda to replace the tired stuff.

My car will never see rain by choice, let alone winter, so the zinc-plating that comes from Honda will be plenty for the exposure this car will face.

Sorry for my bumpy English. I wanted to agree with your approach to renew or replace parts out of the OEM stuff store. I will increase my effort into translation of my words...

No apologies necessary. You're usually pretty damn articulate for being second language!

Probably my last update for some time while I accumulate more funds to soldier on.

Hardware for my new flywheel and pressure plate arrived from Teknotik.

Along with the chromoly swap axles from Hasport.

Really just stopped by the shop to drop off the parts, but decided to freshen up the valve cover while I was there anyways. Included in the VC package was all the spark plug tube gaskets, washers with rubber gaskets, along with the primary valve cover gasket. Looks a hell of a lot tidier with the new hardware, too.

Old crap.

New stuff.

I'll report back in a few months!

Appreciate it, man. Updates are slow going right now, but there's a little bit I can get done here and there without too much financial investment.

Spent a couple weeks in California to try and reset my life and mind. Pulled the cover back yesterday to apply a sticker I'd been gifted. Likely the only one that'll never come off my car.

I think the door-open weather is finally here to stay. It's a much more comfortable atmosphere in the shop with the doors up.

Clutch fork was looking really nappy sitting on my shelf, so I decided to media blast it in anticipation of paint while I was taking a break from wiring today.

The two chassis plugs that need modifying, 'C124';

And, 'A Plug';

I stripped the chassis harness back so that it's easier to work with and I can move some things around accordingly.

I forgot to bring my diagram with me today, so that was as far as I got. I'll update with photos when I make the changes.

I've been speaking with Brian at Hasport, as they'll be amalgamating my two harness'. The chassis side is remarkably straight forward. I've got the PDF at work that I'll cross post in here as well. It's laid out really well, and makes it really easy to follow. I'm completely green when it comes to wiring, and this gives even me the faith to do it myself.

Civic harness on the left, and the old CR-Z unit on the right. Soon they shall be one and the same.

It's a touch daunting, but I've got faith.

I'll be satisfied once it's through. I think it'll be easier than I have played up in my head, haha.

Nothing fun to report. Got some parts in paint, that's about the extent of my progress lately! Used Duplicolor Fleet Coating - takes an eternity to settle and dry, but when it does, it's a rock solid enamel finish.

Threw all the parts in the blast cabinet before hand. They'd been sitting around so long in their raw state that some had begun to oxidize.

Strung up, and in primer.

The end result.

Should compliment all the new hardware nicely when I start bolting things back up.
