PostSubject: Dont call it a comeback   Mon 14 Mar 2011, 6:36 am

Hi again,

I have decided that i AM going to finish the teg off, i really AM this time, now you have no reason to beleive me but im going to share anyway.

After having the S14 i can say that i dont have 'hondepression', i maintain that i have had more fun driving the S-body than in any honda i have had and will miss driving it ALOT but as many of you know its got to the stage with tax/insurance/fuel/tyres etc that its become too expensive for me to run right now, let alone mod.
I also have to say that as much as the feel/sound etc of a 280bhpish SR20det was amazing i do miss the rawness of a good old B series, dare i forget to mension the difference in running costs between the two.

I also decided in some kind of supersticious way to start a new thred, just to shake off the bad karma/luck whatever you want to call it that has followed the build up until now, the old thread or 'part one' can be found HERE.

anyway, i digress....

I have been dreading opening the car up for some time now, the last time i TOUCHED the car was when me and tesh accidentally put the rear window through so needless to say since then there has been ALOT of rain, snow and broken glass falling from the window, i did cover it up but time to time the wind uncovered the window.

So i opened it up today and got the door cards, dash and heater matrix out, shook all the glass out of them and laid them on the lawn to dry out any moisture:



which exposed this:





At this point i was in a pradicament, how do i clean up all the glass without scratching the fark out of everything? pick it up bit by bit? i dont freaking think so, luckily my dad had a brainwave and broke out the pond vacuum:



this motherfucker sucks like fark and doesnt use a bag, im not lieing i actually vacuumed the whole drive after i did the car, nuts, bolts, gavel, the lot, then you can just open the top and grab anything good you want out of it.

this is how the inside looked afterwards:
(it still needs a proper wipe/clean)





and here it is looking sorry for itself still:



More to come
thanks

not in arsey way but i find it hard to believe that you will get it back on road to drive yourself, you should be able to understand why im saying this!

with the money that its gonna cost to get this back up and running why dont you just sort the s out?

Money aside - it is easily possible to get it on road, cheap hub set not the overpriced 5lug, good healthy b18c4 not the overpriced b18c, he already has suspension, wiring does not have to be all out super tucked for now be positive it can all happen just not overnight kinda thing looking at month if constantly on it.
