Just got thru reading ur log for the first time and I must say I am very impressed with the quality of work you have put into your teg Max. I can't wait to see this bad boy done and up and running with the new b20v setup and your jdm front.

is that the DuraFlex hard block? do you have the set??
if so i would suggest using the long block for the best results on a flat surface, i used to use the small block til my dads body man cought me n told me dats a big nono if i want the best results, since then i barely even use the D.A... just my .o2 bro but im looking forward to see what numbers you put down with the b20 also!
Great Progress

Don't forget the primer* lol
320 is ok but when we use 400 it even leaves marks with certain paints, I like to finish with 600 wet before paint. I need to read through your thread! I have evil thoughts of a b20v but I need read up moarrr'!
*Edit: I found you got it for 1050, that's not bad at all I got super lucky n found mine locally

Yes it's all gonna get primer, I'm not a body man just doing what my brother in-law says as I go. When I repainted my car I did use 600 grid wet sand so I'm sure he gonna make me do that. The b20v yes it bring allot of critics but I'm trying to do the right way all though there is no Right way cause honda would of made it lol. But feel free to say what ya think

I'm trying to figure out a way how to cover the holes in the bumper were the plate mounts. Only thing I can think of is get one of those glue gun that glues plastic and put a patch from the inside. any other ideas?

that fiberglass bondo stuff might work, then bondo over it and smooth it out

They make those bonds for plastic.. or you can get a torch n piece of plastic from like a junk bumper or something n melt the plastic on n mold/'sculpt' it with a flat metal object that has also been torched/heated to give it the form/shape, then some bondo can do the trick.

i just bought a plastic welder. from what ive seen, the fix is:
1. cut a piece of plastic to fill the gap.
2. from the outside, put a piece of aluminum tap to hold the piece in place
3. from the back, heat up the plastic and push wire mesh into the plastic
4. on the front, v cut the gap to create more surface area for plastic filler to set into

Then sand and finish like you normally would. Ill post a process once i get my welder in this week

I took a chunk out of my lower bumper and sort of plastic welded my holes in the bumper by melting it with the soldering iron. I didnt use a patch behind the holes and mine seems just as strong as the other parts of the bumper
