https://flic.kr/p/2kzBhi5Getting shinier! I ordered more felts in different sizes but they won’t be back in stock until the 15th.
I also just ordered a bunch of stuff from Honda. Water pipe o rings, water neck, timing belt pulley and guide plates, and a few bolts and gaskets.
I also ordered more stuff from Downstar. Oil pan kit, titanium header and intake manifold studs, and some other odds and ends.
Hoping to get the head sent out this week.
https://flic.kr/p/2kAUC26I started packaging my cylinder head. The plan is to pack it in a box with expanding foam and then pack that box into a slightly bigger box with more padding. I just need to figure out which carrier to use.
https://flic.kr/p/2kCq8w4Cylinder head is all boxed. I’m going to put this box into a slightly bigger box and pad the fuck out of it. I just haven’t found a slightly bigger box yet.
https://flic.kr/p/2kCqBFmI started sanding my 99-00 headlights. 400 grit to get the big scratches out. Will go another round of 400 in the opposite direction and work up to 800 or 1000 and then hit it with 2k clear coat. Need to wait for warmer weather before I can spray.
https://flic.kr/p/2kCqBFrI’m done polishing my VTEC solenoid. Still waiting on the bolts from Downstar. This could be SO much shinier and smoother but I don’t have the means and/or the patience to get into the many nooks and crannies.
Heading to the junkyard tomorrow. They have a VSM 99 sedan and a 95 EX coupe. Hoping to grab some body parts and some Z6 bits, if everything isn’t already picked over. The high is supposed to be 30° tomorrow so that should be fun.
Need to order more sandpaper from Amazon and still need to find a box to get this damn head sent out.
https://flic.kr/p/2kF275fSome bolts came in from Downstar. Oil pan, VTEC solenoid, thermostat housing, water neck, and titanium studs for the IM. Burnt titanium studs for the exhaust manifold are backordered.
https://flic.kr/p/2kF1xUYI started sanding the thermostat housing to get ready for polishing. Twice as big as the VTEC solenoid with just as many nooks and crannies. I’ll be ordering more sandpaper tomorrow.
I ordered some parts from SpeedFactory as well but FedEx shows them stuck in Chicago since Monday. With the issues I had with my PCI order I’m not getting my hopes up.
