I have many things on order:


Snap-on Butane Soldering Iron
Snap-on Heat Gun (for heat shrinking)
Rhno Label Machine that prints on Heat Shrink (to label my wire harness)
Banjo Fittings From Earls (to rework on the brake lines)

Here is images where i have been working on the "outlines"
where the 40/40 valve will kick out of the firewall and tie back into the OEM rear break lines.






And i got my Bronze Glass


ordered some tools for the wiring im about to tackle.




Picked out and ordered the colors today.

WOW.. spendy.. but.. I wanted enough to be able to fully repaint the car if something was to happen to it.



I got 1 gallon of Glasurit Metallic Silver
2 gallons of Glasurit Metallic Pasha

If anyone knows how much Glasurit Metallic Paint costs, they have a idea how much i just spent on 3 gallons of paint.

the car will be painted 2-3 times (inside and out) with the silver.

Then it will be painted multiple times with the Pasha.



How did i come up with this color? Hand Mixing.. There is no special paint code.

I made a little cart for the motor so i can wheel it inside my living room when i start re-working all the wiring off the back of it.



starting to clean off the paint. aboot ready for some bodyfiller..



small update. got some new oem mudflaps.










Started laying mudd... getting closer to paint :)



something came today.





Video on how it sounds:





Before:


After:



got rid of a lot of the black paint (interior)

I went ahead and shaved the mount holes for the Radiator and the AC.




radiator / fan showed up today.



Ground off the tabs on the radiator.
Going to run the fan reversed so you cant see it from inside the bay.
Also mocked up with some tape how the stay brackets are going to work.

Hope you enjoy.






Got the S2000 Clutch Master Cylinder



I sprayed in some Slick Sand (spray able bondo/primer.)


NOTE:
The seems look real nasty in the photos. I put tape over them so i wont shoot anything in the seems. So.. please dont think its all nasty like that :)


It gives me a idea of whats low/high.
and will let me sand/smooth.








i'll have to do this about 3-5 times





HHEHheh, thanks guys. I just spent another 5 hours on the harness. taking much longer then i thought.



U can see the place where im going to have to run all the wires through to hit the firewall.

















mostly for looks, but i got a slightly used aem fuel pressure regulator.



test fit the All In Motorsports S2k spacer.

We Took some photos tonight.
Hope this helps show how this works.


Clearance Without Spacer


Clearance With Spacer


Shaft Length Without Spacer


Shaft Length With Spacer


Direct drop-in shown with pin installed




Finished product with clutch line assembled




The amount of threads to mount the unit have been reduced. (Can see in photo.)
This is a direct bolt in. No modifications where made to the Factory S2000 Clutch Master Cylinder.

installed the antenna today.
20min of measuring. 10min of cutting 2min thread inserting done :)

Hey guys.

So... Over the past year I have been searching for Anniversary edition interior that was not beat up.

My hunt ended about 3 months ago when clubeg6 member (EDC) "aka" Ed, located a private seller in the Philippines who had Limited Edition Flawless Interior. He offered to rush over and pre-pay for this out of his own pocket, giving me the benefit of the doubt i would cover his cost.

So ED then began the 1 month search for a affordable shipping company. DHL requested over $1,200 shipping... A few other companies where much more then that. We finally found a place that would deliver the package within 3 hours of my home for under $1,000

Downfall, this would take 35+ days to get here. And it was traveling by SEA.

Long story short. Today was the day i made the 3 hour drive up to Portland to Try to Clear customs. They checked the package made sure no Drugs or illegal dvds where in the box.

And i got the RED stamp of approval to go pick up my package.

Grabbed it. Drove 3 hours home. My friend marcos (owner of the truck) on the way home decided to pass a driver who was in the lane who was possibly drunk. Turned out... he was masturbating while driving. (i can not vouch, i did not see this) However Marcos needed to pull over and get some water. He was very disturbed and disgusted about what he had just seen.

The package is here. Save and sound. I hope you enjoy the photos. (provided by EDC) (i'll take photos when they are installed)













Also, today i got my windshield out. Bronze Glass.. Mmmm...

worked on welding some brackets into the hatchback for the rear interior. WOW. had no idea it was so different to install.


I like to weld wearing a tshirt, shorts and flipflops.






worked all night.. got home @ 2:00
Need to finish tomorrow.

On RHD shells there are threaded holes to screw down the seats. (i didnt know about this) so i asked about and people said "you got to just weld the rear seats in place)

I was like F that.

So... I came up with a idea.. Thought id share.

Take some large bolts (oem honda) with large washers on them.

Cut the holes where they need to be in your floor boards. (bi enough for the head of the bolt to sit down, but small enough so the washer can be welded to the floor board)



(you get the idea)


So.. now.. if we just welded in the bolt, by welding in the washer, the bolt would just spin.

So we need to weld the HEAD of the bolt to the washer so it will not spin in the hole.





Now place them in the hole and weld the washer down to the floor board. (Not welding the threads)

You should end up with something like this.



Much more practical rather then welding down the seats permanently.







Not everything is 100% tighten down. i did not want to risk breaking any plastic clips.

^ i tried to keep the interior clean as possible. But.. with a bodyshop bondo dust is EVERYWHERE. So please ignore the dirty plastics. I assure you.. they are much cleaner in person.

OEM JDM foglights/ full wiring and switch.


Finding a RHD audio console that is not beat to hell is harder then i thought.

2 months on a waiting list...



So.. Yeh.. figured out about the harness bar.
Decided to fork out the cash for a new.

EG6 Cusco Chassis stiffener :) W/Optional Cusco Bar






Im sorry for the lack of updates.... Still waiting to get back in the mood to go work on the car. STill jut buying the small parts that will give it the complete look.


I got my hands on the bronze insert for the EG6 console. Very happy i found one complete!







I located the missing armrest to complete my interior. Kinda spendy. hard to find.
