Thanks, with minimal trimming the sedan EG one fits the EF! It is pretty wild!

Got up this morning to go to work...
Image

My golden rule about bad weather is, if I can make out of the drive, I'm going to work...
Image

I did make out of the drive, and onto the street...
Image

I made it just down the street outside the park where I live and just the other side of the bridge. Then, because the car sits so low, she loaded sleet up under the body and all forward momentum ceased. :crook: It took my wife and I 2 hours to drag the silly thing back to the house. Looks like I won't be going to work. Sleet is different than snow. It's like rain drops that freeze and turn into tiny marbles. When you drive a car over it, it compacts and turns into giant sheets of ice. Shit sucks.

Guess who just ordered the stickers for his wheels to really pump up the appearance of the 'F'ugen's? This guy!!  ;) Oh how the JDM junky haters are gonna love me! LMAO!

Plus I got my 'I <3 my EF' sedan sticker in the mail the other day. Just need to find someone to produce one with the silhouette facing the other direction so I can put one on the other side of the car!

My boy jb0ne called me up and asked me to go for a cruise. Snatched up my co-pilot and hit the road!

Had a good time just running around showing jb0ne some of the performance shops around the area.

Been gettin work done, a little bit at a time!

Pics! :D
Image

Here's kinda what it was before. Photographing glass sucks! Lol!
Image

Out...
Image

Picked up my rebuilt A/C compressor Friday! :D Hopefully have A/C soon!
Image

And Saturday my wife got new wheels for her CRV! She was/is super stoked about them!
Image
:bang:

Been stupid busy with work, meets, and I've been trying to start a car club here in the Fort Worth area.
So here's one I popped the other day. She just looked good and I had to get it...
Image

One from the car wash before CupCake meet..
Image

Club Banner
Image

And I put some work in and refinished the front bumper. It's not show quality but it's a much needed improvement.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Here's a day shot. And I've cleaned up the overspray seep since these pics.
Image

Painted the top of the lip because I didn't like the way it blended into the rest of the venting. I like the way it comes out now. :)

"Civic Duty"

Love it!

And I completely agree about painting the top of the lip. Looks real nice with the white along the bottom of the vent!

Thanks man! I think I'm gonna have to try this Plasti-Dip stuff. The paint on the lip is already chipping at stress points.

So, here's the pics from the cam replacement the other day.
Tearing it down. I love how Castrol leaves a engine!
Image

Here's the cam lobe. There were actually more than one going bad.
Image

Pads on the rocker arms were pretty chewed up too.
Image

Luckily I had another set lying around.
Image

Getting her all buttoned up.
Image

My Lil' Man decided he needed to come out and check my final torque on all the bolts.
Image

The next weekend I did the brakes.
Image

I think I could've gotten another 20,000 miles out of those!
Image

Mmmm... shiny...
Image

Got the car washed last week and donated to a local soft ball team!
Image

Mmmm.. O.E. Freshness!!
Image

Image

Also snapped a real quick pick at the club meet that was again another flop. One of these days I'll have someone show up...
Image

And here is the beginnings to the center caps I'm going to make for the Fugens.

Got some work done the other day. Finally finished porting one of the heads I've had lying around collecting dust, and I cut the seats on that one and two more.

Image

Image

Image

Image

So now I have a Ported and Polished head with our full radiused valve job and one head with just the valve job up for dibs. I'm not going to put these in the For Sale thread because I'm not in any hurry do get rid of them. PM me for pricing or negotiations if you are interested.
