Here we go! Got me some fender washers!

Before
Image

After
Image

Notice the large void I have on the passenger fender... Still need an MPFI air box.  =(

Image

Also showed up Monday...
Image

Image

Fitting and trimming of the lip will commence this weekend. It's a Mugen replica from a 4 door EG. More 'F'ugen!!

Got around to installing the 'F'ugen EG lip. After some trimming right around the bottom of the vent, top of the lip, it slipped right on! Didn't have to cut the sides down or anything else!! Guess at this point I need to start getting her ready for some paint.

Image

Image

Image

Ka-chow!! (lol)
Image

Bare with me, guys, and I'll be checking in from time to time to see how everyone else's stuff is coming along. Keep on motoring!

Went down the street and popped some pics the other night. If you look carefully you can see the rear window visor.

Image

Image

Image

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. S*!t 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!

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. :)

Funny thing about that is I've been kicking it around recently of two-tonig it with silver below the trim. Just haven't had the balls to commit. Lol!

If anything, it will get a small lip across the rear of the trunk but no stand off spoilers for this car.

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.
