Fuck this shit was a pain in the ass to take out alone damn, but fuck it got it done.

So the day wasn't as long as i wanted it to be, had a lot to do and was running around getting everything i needed but got a lot done, im in the final stages tho all that is left to do is finish sanding the firewall and then paint.







I picked up my parts from the shop today hell yeah now I can get shit done.

Got my bay done!!!, I would have installed the subframe but was fixing two cars at the same time so next time I guess.

Here's a pic of my bay, I just need to clear it and she will be done and ready to be swapped.

I hate body work, smoothed out the spots I removed the studs from on the firewall and cleaned shit up a bit.

Thank you sir.

Fuck a huge ass bump in the road just showed up FML!!!!!

So as you guys see from the pictures I removed a couple of things from the block to send to the machine shop including the vtc gear, so I had to take off the chain cover and what not so I did and haven't touched the block ever since.............So today I go to put everything back on, I was excited then I go to put on the timing chain and I have to locate the dot on the crank and since im there and can see into the oil pan im like it looks good until I spot something shiny, I go grab a flashlight and low and behold there is a fucking big ass chunk of metal in there.





So much for installing the motor this month, now I have to remove the oil pan and do a full inspection fml!!!! looks like the rebuild will have to be done sooner then later now.

Its been 6 months since I bought the block and I had warranty from the place I bought it from but it finished, I hope they can help me out.

Wish me luck.

The steel K24 pan helps so much...
It dents and doesn't shatter or break when it gets hit.
I learned this lesson the hard way.

Man that got me so stressed out, I saw what you said and I went to check and boom just the oil pan, you helped without even knowing it.

Been stressing about getting my build ready and so much shit is going down and I saw that and I freaked.

Time to order oem Honda parts

Thank you and I wish it was smooth lol.

Paint/primer/clear-$60
Material-$20
2 days of prepping.

I still have to setup my fuel setup and plan my brake line tuck, not sure if to do the diy or just get the complete kit ready to go.

The last thing on my list is body and paint, I really don't care much for it at the moment, not building it for shows.........not sure on paint choice tho, it will stay black just need to pick either a fresh satin black or a metallic black.

Im finally almost done with this damn slow build lol and I made up my mind on the wheels im going with cant wait.

What do you guys think?, im not 100% on the windshield washer res staying there.

That prop valve must go, its so ugly just sitting there all alone sooooooo I will be ordering a relocation kit very soon.

Man a sidewinder manifold coupled with a precision 6266 turbo would look awesome in there.



Seeing her like this makes me sad buuuuuuuuutt no one will suspect a thing lol, I still have so much to do.
