car looks great. time for an update!

also - it looks like you installed the rubber inner fender lips on the rear wheel arches (at least in one of your pics). if this is the case, remove them. moisture collects there with the road salt, and that is what causes the rust in the first place.

i hated the chicago winters and the 5 months of salt... and so did my cars... keep up the good work...

I just updated it last night!!!

Yes, I installed the inner wheel well plastic bits. The car will no longer be driven in the winter so I hope that the moisture collection wont be as much of an issue. But, that's a very useful bit of info so thank you. I may take them off anyways. I also COATED the whole inside of the car with POR15. It's a rust inhibitor and encapsulator. I'm hoping it helps a lot. That **** was expensive...

Car looks amazing.
Where would I order JDM ITR axles from? Every time I've ordered something for an "ITR" it's been the USDM GSR and for things like the wheel bearings and axles it makes a huge difference. The GSR front wheel bearings are way smaller than the JDM ITR and we all know that the JDM ITRs have 36mm hubs. I ordered rebuilt CRV axles but I couldn't get the outer hubs off to but on my GSR axles.

I actually ordered my axles on Monday through One Six Motorsports in Elkgrove. If I can pick them up on Saturday my car should be drivable by Monday. I've got a lot of suspension adjustment to do in addition to the installation.

Ha. thanks dude. It's no show car but I'm proud as **** of the work that we've done. It'll probably get stolen in a couple of months and that'll be that but, for the time being, I love it.

Picked up my Axles from One 6 Motorsports this morning. Weather is shitty though so I probably won't be doing any shake down drives today.

Thanks dude. New to the 'scene' so be sure to let me know when meet ups are happening.

I don't think so. It's the first time I've driven the swap. I don't think someone beating on the trans would cause the shift light to come on though. I was thinking more along the lines of me wiring something wrong.

i have a 92 cx. i swapped in a 97 d16y7 i ran it with a p28 out of necessity to drive the car home after the swap was done and the shift light came on when the brakes were applied. I put in a p06 and now the shift light doesn't actuate. i cant explain it. i think theres some weird cx wiring or something.

I ended up ordering Drive Shaft Shop axles with the correct outer CV joint.

Originally I ordered re-builts for a CRV and we tried to swap the CRV outers onto the GSR axles but the internal snap ring on the CRV axles wouldn't let go. And we hammered the **** out of them. So, we couldn't separate the re-builts. Also, the passenger side axle WOULD NOT come out of the transmission. F***ing snap ring. We ended up busting the joint and welding a bracket across the opening on the cup so we could use a slide hammer to bust it out. I've been meaning to post a picture but I always forget. Anyways, it took about 10 (no joke) good blasts with the slide hammer before it finally popped loose.

Definitely the torch. I prefer PB Blaster over WD-40 though.

Also, POR15. Keep that rust from coming back!
