Rust like that makes me so thankful I'm able to store mine in the winter. Hope you can bring her back.

Do me a favor.From now on don't care what other people think about your car. Do what YOU want to your car. Who gives a damn what other people think about it.

like i said, the small cheap and easy updates first lol.

i removed the ground wire kit i made for the car like 10 years ago, i removed the damaged bumper, the side skirts, took the trunk pieces out, removed the rear strut bar, and i think i narrowed down the coolant leak. i think....it leaks with the car not running so its nothing pressurized. its runing down the side and the backside of the block. the upper rad hose is part of the problem, not sure with the rear.

from the guy getting brake checked (hence the damage to the bumper and hood) after i took off the front bumper cover i found some twisted up damage. this will not be fun to straighten out...

also, i think i'm missing some important bolts??

anyways, on to the pics

this is why i'm keeping the stock color on the car..love this green


is there a good way to fix this? vtec solenoid wiring



here is the mount on the tranny side, see this hole that has threads down in it....is there supposed to be bolts here?? the one just across from it is the same way, not bolts...



everything out of the trunk! need to locate my leaking water source in here...





mangled up bumper off... they ruined my jdmshit type r lip...its all cracked up. i've been out of the game for a while, do they still exist? where can i pick up another one? i think the one from jdmshit was around 120 or so

still have to remove the jdm fogs and put them on the other bumper cover i picked up.



making a mess in my driveway, you can see where the bumper cover mounts to the rad support it is tweaked a bit



heres a little better pics of where she's tweaked. need to do some massive clean up in here. not sure if i want to redo the valve cover in the wrinkle red again or just the factory style black wrinkle





here is where the coolant is puddling on the backside of the motor



and this is where i ended up for the day...maybe the weekend.

Wow... I think that might be toooo much rust, but none the less, good luck!

This is why I'd never sell my integra.

I'd say in all maybe 5% of the car is gonna give me a hassle. Almost all of the rust is just surface rust. I poked around some more and its all solid with the exception of that one spot in the rear quarter and those 2 spots by the front fenders. Nothing me and my welder cant fix

so yesterday's job was to start getting ready for the rust treatment, which is basically jus starting to get all of the stuff off the car and out of the way. took off the headlights, fenders, fender liners, rear bumper, and took out my hids. also picked up a hood in almost perfect shape for $50. its silver, but the whole car is getting repainted when i'm done so i'm not worried.

hopefully this week or next weekend i can start getting this thing off the ground and up on jack stands and start dropping the exhaust, suspension, etc...

few more pics:



this rear bumper support is absolutely shot.... i was pulling huge chunks of it off with my bare hands



a shot of my main area of rear rot



freshened up some new to me suspension pieces, forgot to take a pics of the rear lowers



think i can do anything to save these?



i also think i located my coolant leaks, both the upper and lower hoses are leaking but they also appear to be very loose. and i think i may have some heater hoses leaking as well. i know i never replaced when i previously owned it, they look like they might be factory...eeeek

thats all for now

dulled plastic, a whole lot of condensation and overspray from a crappy paint job. I'd get new lights personally.

It would take a few hours and some money. You could do it but I don't think it would be worth the time plus what you would have to get to do it.

Worked only about an hr on the teg this weekend. I'll try and post some pics tomorrow. I also ran into a few more spots that are going to add to my list of things the car needs...

This was my first disappointment...i did not realize how badly tweaked this front is until i was face to face level with it. i hope i can pound this bake into place or bend this back into place.



i put the car on jackstands so i can start to disassemble hopefully soon. i removed the rear bumper, it came off in three pieces it was so rusted up. i'll need to locate a replacement for that.





here is the gauge setup i had previously in the car.



dont ask why i got the a/f gauge...i honestly dont remember. i def. want to keep the oil pressure gauge but the a/f can go. is there a USEFUL gauge that i can put there in its place? keep in mind i'm not doing boost or anything like that. i'm open to suggestions.

and lastly, i didnt get a picture of the other 3 things i located that didnt make me happy.

1. the transmission seal is leaking (99% sure thats what it is). there is oil dripping between the block and tranny coming through the little opening underneath. not a huge deal, basically just the extra cost of the seal because i had planned on changing the clutch. i changed that myself right around 75K mile i think, maybe 100K miles. so with 214K on the car now, i guess it's time again?

2. the engine oil seal (behind the timing belt) looks like its leaking. there is a lot of gunk buildup and wet oil building at the back corner of the block on the drivers side and it goes on up. i think thats what it is, i'll know for sure when i do the timing belt and water pump. again, its just going to be the cost of the seal since i plan on tearing down that side of the block anyways.

3. i found a WTF tucked up in with the new, relocated brake lines.... someone please tell me....are the fuel lines all hard lines like the brake lines or are there any hoses? i see a couple of spots that have me concerned but i'm not 100% sure how the fuel system is set up on here. i looked at the parts diagram but its hard to make out what is actually going on in the diagram.

i just realized in one of my older pics you can see one of the spots i'm talking about. i circled it in red, see how it is a hard line then goes to rubber? there is no clamp or anything but that hose is on there tight... is it some sort of vent line that i dont need to worry about?

A good gauge to get would either be oil temp or water temp, so you can know what's really going on with the engine. Given the choice, I'd go oil temp, but I plan to end up with all 3 in my car (oil temp and press, and water temp).

No idea about that hardline/hose bit. Might be a vent? I can't check my Helms right now.
