I just want to finish it and be done with it.

Ram, we need to get back the old crew.

About time I can now apply for Historic Tags for my GS/VTEC Automatic and no more SMOG

Ok this one is spread out more over the last couple of weeks. Some because it was due, some for dragon run prep.

Finally put on the ITR tranny cover/brace I got from @MorningZ about a year and a half ago. (also about the time I had my kid so there's part of the delay.) I didn't have one at all and it wouldn't clear his exhaust so good timing.
It wasn't without some bolt confusion though. It's figured out now but the other bolts won't get here before the dragon. Don't think it'll be a problem though.


Oil change and tranny fluid check. meh boring.

Also got a new set of S-drives mounted. It's like getting new brakes after a long while. You forget how good they are when they were new. The previous set were about 4-5 years old.

While doing that I picked up a new set of lug nuts as some of the old ones were worn to the point I was worried to put them back on without stripping them to get off again. Figured now was a good time to get some purdy green ones. The darker ones I wanted were on back order so I got lighter instead. Doesn't match the car as well but close enough.
I also detailed it to a mirror(wash-clay bar-wash-dry. Klasse AIO and HG seal) and added rain-X. Typically it doesn't see rain outside of the Dragon. I'm such a bitch about this car sometimes, I get it.


After that threw on the car bra and exhaust silencer for the drive down. The exhaust isn't loud generally but it's a b16 tranny and sitting at high revs for 12 hours even the quite Comptech can get old. I also replaced my previous orangutan tow hook buddy with one that wasn't short an arm and leg. Strapped on and ready to hold on for a ride.

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.

Shopping for parts. I can't decide if I want to go HIDs or LED for my JDM headlights with D2S (TSX) projectors.

So, the leather on my steering wheel was looking (and feeling) pretty rough. I initially planned to buy a used steering wheel on Ebay and install a new leather cover on it. While looking for one, I found a steering wheel with its leather in very good shape. I bought that one and finally got around to installing it this morning. It was actually easier than I expected.

Old crusty wheel:






Replacement wheel installed:






With any luck, this wheel will hold up for a few years.

I'm kind of shocked that happened to the old one. Strange.

Finally gave it the long over due post-dragon run wash. The brake dust covered brown wheels are now silver again.

The leather finish really started going down hill when I brought my nephews to the dragon a few years ago. They were nervous and had very sweaty hands. The leather got sticky and deteriorated from that point on.

Drove mine to work today. A new clutch is in the very near future for me. Time to start debating Exedy clutch/flywheel options.

Cleared the water drain tubes, had bad leaks but that took care of it. Switched door panels, center console, arm rest to black interior pieces. Went to a salvage yard and picked up a few more pieces.

My friend just order rear main seal assembly, valve cover gasket set, oil pan gasket, and (2) cams oil seal for my motor. The only thing left is to order the main rod bearings (I get my builder to order it from Acura). My motor will be assemble

I'm debating if I want to go with HIDs (35w or 55w) or LED for my JDM SIR-G headlights w/black housing & D2S projector install.
