I understand the exhaust. I have a comptech and around town it's fine. Long trips it would get back but I have the silencer that I put in for that. With the tranny it puts me at 4-4.5k rpm which doesn't help either.

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'm hoping to pick up a DB8 R exhaust soon, i think i could live with that. I'm also working on picking up a OBD2A cabin harness for the car. I'm tired of fighting the electrical demons, getting an oem un cut harness seems to be the proper solution.

Well, I think its about that time for the Acura. See that white stuff? Ugh...snow.



I was going to hold off until they actually start throwing down that salt brine crap, but this popped up on my app this morning.

So i'll play it by ear, but i think the car is going into hibernation mode this weekend and after Thanksgiving i'll start tearing into the car for the winter work.

Also hit a new mileage milestone just yesterday.

Upull had a 50% off day on black friday, went there and got some neat things and a few parts for the car. Came across this poor yota...



Found this in an 86 civic, i have no idea what i'll do with it. i just thought it was neat to find all of this honda literature.



And then i road tripped to JDMOhioDirect on Saturday and met up with Braden and Aaron and came home with a DB8R exhaust, cant wait to get this guy on the car!

Some quick progress pics from this weekend.* I will no longer be using a DA to get through the paint, it is taking forever...





I used a blower attachment to use the compressor to blow the dust off the car, it really needs to be wiped down though.* The pictures still show a ton of dust.

And i started drilling spot welds and separating my donor panel for the driver's side.* this panel is from North Carolina, it is separating way easier than the one i got from Florida.* I was kind of suprised at the amount of corrosion on the one from Florida compared to this one.* Must be that ocean life yO!

Got some more work done this weekend. To start out, i cut my quarter panel replacement down to a usable size. It takes up waaay less room in the garage now. I have the pic of when i received it somewhere in this thread, it was massive.




i used my new paint stripping disc to attempt to work more on the body work. i got half way done with one door and my grinder blew up. poof, smoke, nadda. Oh well, this was a harbor frieght special i bought like 7 or 8 years ago for $20. Its been put through the ringer time and time again, so i'm surprised it lasted this long honestly.



so, without a tool, i went back to the DA to at least attempt to get the clearcoat off the whole car.




i'll be picking up a new grinder this week, BUT - it has me rethinking my approach to the car. The only parts of the car that have been re-painted too many times is the roof the body, and the doors. The front bumper and the hood were bought as replacements and each have one paint job on them. The trunk the car was a replacement after the last paint job on the car, so there is just one on that as well. I have some fenders that are in better shape than the ones that came with the car, so those wont need to be stripped to metal either. If i just need to strip basically the shell of the car to metal, i may try some of the air craft paint stripper. i'll buy a small container just to see if i can get the results i want. if not, back to the grinder. Prior to painting the car, once i get the bare metal prepped and primed, and i spray some primer sealer over the entire car and all of the parts at that point to make sure i have the same color surface to work with for base coat.

I also decided over the weekend i'm putting this guy back in the car.



However, i have a problem. the 2 metal brackets that held the cd unit to the cassette unit seem to have run off....i might have to DIY something to get these to work.

i concur, OEM speakers = blah. A friend of mine says he has the brackets for the radio thats gonna be a go. Body work is so tedious, but i sort of taught myself teh basics. When i was in college, my S-10 needed a paint job badly. So i had a friend at a body shop that went over all of the basics with me, as far as prep work anyways. So if i'm doing the math, i've been prepping my own vehicles (and sometimes others) going on 17 years now lol.

fack i'm old.
