Looks 20/20 to me.

Good at 20 ft or 20mph.

Seriously though considering how it started it's pretty damn good.

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.

I picked up some parts for something I wanted to attempt with this car at some point, but I picked these up on the cheap so I didn't want to pass up the deal. Hopefully everything is ok, from what I can tell without tearing these apart, the parts I need look to be intact. From what the ad said, these are AP1 headlights.

So here is a recent pic from the park where i walk my dog. Its starting to get to be that time of year where I do not want to drive the integra on the road anymore. Its getting colder, but no snow in the immediate forecast yet. As soon as they start putting that god awful salt brine on the roads, the teg goes into the garage for winter storage/updates. So, here is what i have planned for the car this winter:

-Replace rear window motors and re-lube the regulators etc...
-Replace the front window motor/regulator assemblies with the new to me ones i picked from a upull yard
-Replace the core support so my bumper fits correctly and my hood closes correctly
-Figure out why my charging ports no longer are receiving power
-Replace some of the exterior window trim pieces with some better conditioned ones i picked from a upull yard
-Replace one A/C hose, the compressor, possibly the condenser? its original to the car so i have no idea how long these last.
-Go back through and re-tighten all suspension bolts. I just recently have been getting a slight knocking sound from the front suspension.
-Replace the oil pan gasket with a myhondahabit gasket, replace the ITR cooler o-ring, and the o-riing around the breather box. I think these are all the culprits of my slight oil seep.
-Complete a DIY Ice box mod using my AEM short ram for the intake pipe.
-install a few various kill switches for additional security.
-attempt to diagnose a weird voltage issue that seems to be related to above and below 42 mph for some reason...
-If funds/time allow, complete my S2000 retrofit.

Getting all of this done this winter is a fairly lofty goal, especially with a 2 week old new born in the house now. The car has treated me quite well considering it basically went to a daily driver status from May until now. I've put a hair over 6,000 miles on the car with a pretty minimal amount of things that needed to be addressed. I think i am over this exhaust though....this canister style muffler has to go. Gas mileage is great, the car runs smooth and shifts smooth, i cant ask for much more than that. Now that i have had a good bit of seat time in the car since the rebuild, i can safely say it is so great to be driving this car again as much as i am. They are such a blast to drive, even just mildly modded like mine. For a brief moment, i was actually thinking of taking all of my engine mods off the car and putting everything related to engine and exhaust back to stock. I think i will keep all of the mods as they are currently and just get rid of the loud exhaust. I need something a tad more tolerable. One thing I found odd throughout my 6,000 mile journey this year is the turning radius, my tacoma double cab has a tighter turning radius than this car. Oh well, that's nitpicking.

Be on the look out for the winter mods!

Put mine away already for the year. No snow yet but I get nervous when mid to late November and it's still out. Put it away a couple weeks ago. At least you'll still try to work on it!

Yeah the attempt to work will be there, we shall see if I make good on it. Luckily the two kero heaters I have in the garage keep it tolerable. I'm thinking I will put on my trickle charger and put some stabil in the fuel tank. I don't think I will do much more than that, I plan to start it and run it a bit once a week. If the weather permits, i'll drive around the block once or twice just to get fluids circulated.

I always use stabil, why not? There's not one draw back from using it, there's a number of things that could happen if you don't.

I used to run mine during storage, then learned it's really better not to.

One of the hardest things on engines is the begining start up. No fluid where it needs to be for those first few seconds. Even worse after it's been sitting for a while. Either do that once at the end of storage or a number of times during. Once that was pointed out to me I stopped.

Other things I do.
Inflate the tires to max to prevent flat spotting.
Wash of course.
Refrigerator arm and hammer boxes to keep moisture down. A couple of fabric softener sheets to help keep it from smelling. I also put one in each wheel. I read somewhere that it helps keep mice away. I can't say for sure if it's true or not but I've caught mice in traps in my garage so I do it anyway...and put a trap under the car. Really don't want one of those things chewing up wires! I change the oil before storage too. Figure it's better to sit clean.

These are good tips, i'll start really winterizing the car this week.

I received a notification of an integra sedan at the upull yard near me, so of course i make a trip up there. The car was in decent shape, but the interior was near flawless. Wrong color, but i took some items that were in much better shape than the ones on my car. I took the metal exterior trim above the windows, all four door weather strippings were in perfect shape, the shift boot, near perfect condition oem good glass for the passenger side, and a few other items. I made it really easy for whoever gets to that car next. all door panels are removed and placed inside the car, all of the trim etc.. i didnt use is in the car, and i put all of the screws in the same places. Someone who wants dark gray panels etc.. will just need to walk up to the car, open the door, and take them lol.

I started removing some stuff from the car to get clear access to the core support.

I also started messing with my intake project. Itís going to be close, and Iíll have to do some trial and error to make it what I want. I bought this cheapo ebay intake to measure and cut and mangle so I only need to cut my aem intake pipe once. I took a bunch of pics, you can see the fitment is off, but I feel like it will work with some persuasion.

So i was browsing Craiglist the other day for teg parts (because i do that often lol) and i came across some floormats. After i contacted the owner of the ad, i realized the area code looked way off. Somehow, i jumped over to the harrisburg CL. After talking to the guy, he agreed he would ship them to me. Now, these are for a coupe, so they dont fit perfect but they do fit quite well. Best part, they are brand new. I mean, look at the rubber backing, no wear dirt or anything else. Well worth the $50!

Nother nother update....got some work in on the car this weekend.

i jumped to the rear window motors because they are dead as door nails. I also turned my attention to addressing some of the trim and replacing the destroyed weather stripping around the door. Here are some pics:





I'll be making a new moisture barrier for the door after i'm all done.



Also replacing my scratched up door glass with some non scratched up door glass (still oem glass).

And i found out why my windows are getting all scratched up, check out the back of the lower trim.




The replacement trim is just as bad. I'm having a hard time finding if you can order just these replacement pads from honda. I think i might have found it for the fronts, but i'm not sure about the rear. I'm gonna just order one and see what shows up. If i cant use it on the rear, any ideas on what i can use the cover these up so the glass slides on something other than metal??

Here is what i found on acura's breakdown



Window regulator out, cleaned up and re-greased. They leave out an important step in the manual, unless i completely missed it. These things are super spring loaded lol i pinched my fingers between the gears when i removed the old window motor.



i also replaced these in the door, mine were pretty worn and the set i got from the junkard were a little bit better. I fluffed up the fabric with a nylon brush before reinstalling.

i'm waiting on re-installing everything until i figure out a good solution to keep the glass off of those metal portions that used to have the pad to slide on, but its still progress.

EDIT: Someone on honda-tech shared this link with me on window felt replacements. I figured i would share it here because i'm sure i'm not the only one that has to replace these things.
