Some work on the retrofits!





Picked up some misc. hardware and bolts and such so i can get these things mounted to the oem brackets and start the process of adjustment. from what i understand, this can take quite a while. i'm not sure how much testing i can do with them at this point, i have my car positioned in the garage so i can start to work on the driver's rear quarter panel, so the front of the car is about 2 feet from the wall. not nearly enough space do any sort of aiming.

Very minor project update and looking for some guidance as well.* I spent a lot of time doing some much needed cleaning in my garage.* all of this sanding and my "scattered brained" work methods recently have taken a toll on my garage space.* So i did some pretty simple things while i spent the bulk of my time cleaning.* I made a template for my sidemarkers so all i have to do is position the cutout, outline it with a sharpie and start cutting.*




Then i used some blue painters tape to mark all of the areas that need to be addressed with some body filler, which should be here tomorrow.





Then, i started removing some interior items that i know i will need to remove to get the dashboard out.* And, there was a casualty.* My quad pod cracked when i tried to take it out, i'm surprised that 3M tape held it in there that good.* So, i'll need to figure out a way to repair that.

But, i have 3 front leather seats now, as one of my projects i'm going to take 2 of them to make one good one (the one passenger side one is in great shape already).


And now, for my requested help.* I started looking at where i need to separate the inner from the outer panel on my donor panel.* I'm not entirely sure how the area around the gas filler is connected. I dont see any spot welds like i see everywhere else, but i dont think these two pieces are just sitting on top of each other.* Maybe they are?* I could be wrong.* Here are some pictures of the area i'm talking about:

Front view*


And from the rear by the inner panel


Slightly different angle

Like i said, i dont really see any spot welds to be drilled out.* Maybe these two panels do in fact just rest on each other tightly.* That would be great, that would save me a whole heck of a lot of extra work, and i probably wouldnt need to replace as much as i'm thinking when i get around to swapping out this quarter.**

Did some additional research and found some good pictures online. It looks like, luckily for me, there are no spot welds in this area. Its some sort of gasket between the inner and outer panel.

In other news, I love when packages show up at the house. Hopefully this fixes my oil leak for good.






Bought from here, for $150+/- shipped. I was super excited to see that it does in fact come in a Honda box and is stamped P72 etc...

Oh it is for sure.

So, this weekend was frustrating. Well, mostly frustrating. I finally got the dashboard out, I had to cut a couple of wires from the harness to my alarm just because of how it was installed. I didn't see any other way to do it. So, its out and now I can start to replace the cabin harness along with the heater core because I really don't want to ever rip out the dash again. Also the brake light switch to see if that fixes my cruise control issue.





Also, still in process of doing a little seat part swapping to take good leather and foam from a passenger seat, and swap it over to a drivers seat so i have good front seats in the car. By the way, public service announcement - THERE IS REALLY SHARP STUFF INSIDE OF THE SEAT. I found out the hard way when I reached my hand up inside of the seat to release the headrest.



No pictures of this, but this is probably the most frustrating part of my Integra work this weekend. Why is it harder to remove the freakin door handles, than it is the dashboard? I fought with my passenger one for an hour, and it is still in the door. I can't even get to the one bolt for the drivers side. The manual says, raise the door glass up completely, and then use the access hole in the door to use a 10mm and ratchet on the bolt. Well, this is applicable on the passenger side of my car, but the glass still completely covers the bolt on the drivers side. Not sure how this is possible. Anyone have some good tips to get these stupid things out of my doors? The rears were simple to remove, both sides in less than 15 minutes probably.

Alright, so i lost my cool and listed this car for sale for a hot minute yesterday. I have since gathered my senses and decided to continue on. I worked on the car for about 4 hours yesterday and got absolutely nothing accomplished. I removed the evaporator and blower motor quickly, then moved onto the heater core. This stupid thing just does not want to let go of the car. I'm having a VERY hard time getting the hose clamps / hoses to slide off the inlet and outlet of the heater core. I replaced these hoses at the beginning of the project, and it was super simple, but most of the engine bay was torn apart and there was nothing in the way. Now, we have the fuel lines, brake lines, intake manifold etc... all in the way making it very difficult to get enough room for any kind of leverage to get these hoses off the core.



The interior still looking like a nightmare






And the god awful hoses and hose clamps in question.







Still no resolution with this crap. And then my heart really sank when i realized this harness goes back behind the firewall mat. So I will need to remove this, and anything else on top of it, to replace this harness....."insert sigh here"............

This post reminds me of a true definition of 'labor of love' lol With that said, gotta hand it to you brother. I've been slacking on things I want to do lately as my efforts have been working on the house :/ yay for adulting. But the car isn't going anywhere so I have time to do the little things.
