Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

after driving the civic around for a few days i went back to check the ride hight
and even with cutting 1 1/2 links off the springs the car is still sitting at 1 inch higher than before
i measured before the spring job and the rear sat at 25 1/2 inches off the ground and now at 26 1/2
so in the future im gonna have to go back and cut another half link or so so my car can sit at stock hight again
i cant spell hight today haha

today at the shop i did two things
first was install my new rear cup holders ^_^
first was to make the hole where my 5/16 bolt would run threw




once you drill out the hole and run your bolt threw

make sure that you clear the exhaust
i used a 6 inch bolt but looks like a 5 1/2 would of been perfect

i gave the cup holder 2 coats of block before i installed it and used a carrage bolt so no one ever gets hurt
with there feet or something






not bad for just a peace of wood with some holes in it ^_-

i also got around to installing the speaker pod i fixed a while back
so now i have all 4 speakers connected at last





more updates soon

That is a backup battery for an alarm system.
Probably useful when the previous owner had the car before you started butchering it.

The tow hitch on a such a light car is oddball.
But those wooden cupholders, ... :facepalm:

yea ive seen the integra center consoles in efs but in pictures only
never in person
right now because i have the sliding seatbelts theres no room for a center console
thats why im in search for a different way sadly


thanks for the advice on the backup battery
it well all get tossed when i get a chance
i removed most of the alarm already
under the dash and under hood


oh and hay what does butchering mean?
i only know that as cutting meat off animals to sell it

today i headed to the garage to get my rear spring installed
the stock rear springs on the sedan are too soft
when i have three people in the car, the back is pretty much slammed so i headed out today to fix that problem

in the rear im going to be installing stock front springs from my doner car i had a month or so ago
so step one is to remove the rear stuts




stock front spring
had to cut a link and a half off
so im installing cut springs


now heres the part where everyone seems to screw up when doing this
so heres some pics to show how to properly install these things
first its very important to put anti seize on your bolts
on this car i had to cut out three of the old ones but if you lube them then next time around you wont have that problem


now to install your cut spring the right way so its not twisted or risk coming out of the strut
insert like this


here you can see that i placed the spring in backards
so the top of the spring is now at the bottom of the strut
and sets nice and snug


and bottom of spring and top of strut


looks nice finished



oh and while i was doing this job today i found this behind my rear seat

dont know what it is
i didnt want to spend to much time finding out what it was either
but it did have a battery hooked up to it

12 volts and rechargable
but the battery was dead so whatever that thing is it wasnt working anymore

more updates soon
I googled the numbers on that box and it is a tracking device. not sure if you're from the netherlands or not but everything i could find on it was written in dutch. Jaguar Locate Vehicle GPS Tracking Device Recovery System IDILJU--02 5rlj9802us | eBay

otherwise, looking great! Im about to get into the business of making custom center consoles for the EF chassis that have cup holders. The lack of cup holders is one thing I really hate about our cars.

no kidding..you know i had that thought in the back of my head
when i saw it, thats why i removed the battery
this car came from cali, and i really dont want to hate, but cali is just not a safe place, it hasnt been since the 70s
but it makes since that the car would have something like installed

haha when i was going to buy this car i brought a bill of sale from my states dmv right
and the guy in cali thought i was going to sue him in the future or something when i asked him so sign my bill of sale
he was just crazy about it
he was thinking that i was going to rob him or something

a good friend of mine is here with me visiting from japan
were a little drunk already
but we were just remembering our old cars back in the day and telling stories weve had with them

and i figured id share a little with you guys about mine

my old green sedan back in 05



my old crx up in the rockys in canada back in 08


used this crx to tow my eg hatch home from kansas back in 2014

my 94 hatch rally build/ work car 2015




sprayed red

after a run on my home rally track


and then before my team mates bought it from me
i had just sprayed it with a fresh coat of type r white

and i doesnt matter how much money you spend on them
i drive the **** out of my cars

let it get scratched, let it ramp off those pot holes
cars are ment to be driven
and have adventures with
they are not ment to be locked in a garage and be babied

my lifted crv sold after it pulled my sedan home from cali 5000 miles in 3 days


i love honda
and mine more because they have truly shown me what they can do
i have driven them to canada and as far down south as mexico city
they have been to new york- maryland - denver -nebraska- iowa- kansas
oklahoma- arizona -california-new mexico,

most of the time towing stuff or having them fully loaded
with 5 people and a roof full of luggage

and with my new sedan there will be more adventures to come ^_-

this

i was actually going to suggest a tow hitch; not for towing but rather since you mentioned the trunk as a work bench, i thought why not a tow hitch and one of those platforms... turn the platform into a work bench. hitch carrier, is that what it's called??

Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

i could make that work but when i go to other states or just places in general to buy cars i would need the hitch to tow them back
a workbench at the hitch would be a no go
im pretty much sold on making my trunklid the workbench
but its too cold right now to sand it fill the holes pime it and give it the bed armor spray i want to do
so thats going to have to wait till spring
right now im useing my honda crv picnic table as the workbench

but it takes up too much space in my trunk

i take it that bbar and 4dref dont tow things that much
its really not a hard thing to do
here in america it seems like everyone just has a different mind set on how to do things
and i get it, its just how you were raised

you guys would probebly never do something like this

becouse that would be misuse of that psvita or why would you brake that vent oh my god!!!

heres my old eg hatch in kansas city the morning i was going to tow it home with a little crx si

some people maybe would of brought a truck or suv with them to tow it
or rented something like a dolly or maybe they would of just payed a tow truck driver to do the work

i make my cars do all the work so that i keep all the money that i can with me
thats why this it marcos's new work car haha
my build is never going to be like any of the others on here
because mine is a work car
not track not a restro, not a show car
just a civic thats not afraid to get dirty

I'm with ya there. I like seeing different things whether it goes to the track or not.
It doesn't even have to look pretty. I like functionality over looks, but that's just me.

Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

haha yeah you are correct, I don't tow a lot. but I have a truck for those duties. I'm a firm believer in purpose built vehicles. I need a truck, I buy a truck. I need a classic, I buy a classic. I need a 4x4 I buy a 4x4. I need a daily, I buy a daily. Minivan? Buy minivan. That's partially how I ended up with so many cars. I currently or have previously owned every configuration of vehicle one can reasonably own. No Izetta, elec vehicles, or military or construction vehicles. But pretty much everything else.

As for that PSP deal... man that's... k so I wanted a reversing camera in the Odyssey. I considered two options, one feed additional video input into the stock navigation screen... doable, but a lot of messing around. I opted for a full replacement mirror with a built in video screen. So I shift in reverse and the screen comes on automatically. Not as cool as doing the same with the NAVI screen, but very clean nevertheless.

To each their own, I always say I like all cars that owners take pride in... cuz to each his own, as long as you take pride in it - that's really what matters. I used to drive some pretty lame cars (still do??? ahahaha) and when my buddies asked I told them I would never be embarrassed to be seen in a washed and vacuumed car. I'd be more embarrassed to be seen in a dirty *** new Benz than my old '89 Daytona.

But lets not get sidetracked here... you want to build some cupholders, why not weld an extension on the left side of the pass side seat rail - that gives you a mounting plate directly next to the console. Then you can get some commercially available decent looking cupholders that can be bolted to your custom mount. Basically cup holders directly to the right of the shifter

this is what i mean by some people are just raised differently, its not a bad thing
the only difference is that you get this mentallity in your head for example if i do this i need this tool no matter what
and you only think in that circle you never think that maybe if i did it this way it would also work

the brackets would get in the way when a short person would get in the car and move the seat forward
i did think of doing that before but only i wanted the holders to be by the door panals
that way if you have a 5 speed the cups wont get in your way
the dc center consol for example fits only small bottles in its holders
i had a integra before and if you tried to fit a 32 oz drink from a gas station in those holders the bottle would be all tilted at the same time
blocking your stereo
and 3rd and 5th gear you would hit the bottles with your hand when shifting

im talking too much
ive put way to much thought into cupholders than i ever wanted haha

lets get on with more progress, my cup holders have been done for about 2 days now
there was another thread on here about cup holders
and someone brought up the idea of this small metal RACING cup holder that looked like it could only hold a soda can
my front mexican cup holders can hold up to a 44 oz cup from gas stations

enjoy





better than the wooden front ones i never installed


now lets install
some place where it will never get in the way
never get kicked
never block your view
easy access


looks like its trimming time









this trim peace has an angle to it so its not going to sit flush like this
im going to have to put a backing peace behind the holder so it sits flush



looks odd now but after a few days of driving i wont even matter
ive got cup holders all four ^_^


and pessenger side






the holders costed 8 dollars for both shipped
i found them on walmart.com and just took the part number
and then ordered them cheaper from another website
and thats it, cup holders are done
this is day three with them installed
mine i use more as a cell phone holder than anything else but the kids use them every morning on the way to school

so its a usefull mod

more updates soon

It's not that I haven't towed anything before.
It's the fact that you are exceeding the vehicles max towing capacity.
Maybe I was just raised with the "safety first" mindset.

anyone know what the sedans towing capicity is?
its pretty much 2000 pounds
thats pulling pounds, so no suvs for me, but normal cars are no problem
i know this because ive towed cars around for years now, and in my old crx
so the sedan is not going to be any different
moving on haha

i posted on a honda fans facebook page a while back sayiing that i was looking for a b20z2 block with all the guts still in it on sale
and that i was willing to pay a max of 200 bucks for one
about a week went by and nothing
so yesterday i made the hour drive to make it to the junkyard
and i pulled one myself, paid 140 for it and threw it in the trunk
i also pulled some 5 speed pedals for my manual swap 30 bucks



i could of fit two motors in this trunk


so got the motor out of the trunk and threw it on my engine stand
and as you can see its pretty dirty






so i just cleaned it up a bit with a wire brush and some diesel





being a junkyard motor they punch holes in the oil pans to drian the oil out always
and this oil pan has a plug thats really stripped look like its gonna be a good time


now the rebuild of this motor i cant show you guys
because im going to do my race teams tricks to it, and those secrets cant be shown online
so i cant tell you what parts are used, how i shave this, how i made that hole bigger
how i line this up how I resurfaced this, i cant show you guys any of it
but i will be able to show the build once the head is on the motor

more updates soon

Vise-grip brand vise-grips will take care of that bolt. Or a quality pair of channel locks, should be no issue.

i did the vise grip method first but this bolt was not coming off
with all the sluge the b 20 block had was a perfect sign that the oil was never changed i ended up taking the drain bolt out
with a air hammer, but its out and replaced now these b20 motors use a 14m plug so i switched over the 17mm plug that im used to

the internal engine build is done

got my b18al intake mainfold on with obdo injectors with obd1 plugs
and a gsr aftermarket header

lots of new parts like bearings, rings a shave a bore and seals
but you cant see any of that in the pictures so moving on... i will say that i have a 2.2 litter now thou ^_^


now theres two things that im not sure about but also not worried about because im sure i can fiqure it out haha

first im going with yanaka b series motor mounts for a ef with cable trans
since im at the point of the motor build that i can put the driver side mount on,, i did
but if fits wrong

tilted to the left

now im sure theres nothing wrong with the mount im pretty sure that im going to need the motor bracket from either the d series motor that
is in my car now or from a da or dc teg

and my second problem im having is the intermidiate shaft that im going to go with
now I am going with 91 da integra axles, so it only makes since to use a da intermidiate shaft, but i herd that theres a difference with auto and manual ones
and about one not bolting up to the block, this could just be idiots talking on the internet or maybe its true
now my maybe problem haha
is that my b20z2 engine block was taken from a auto crv
so would i need a auto intermidiate shaft or a manual one since im going to be 5speed?

i had about 4 hours to spare the other day so i tinted my windows
i went with 20 in back and 35 up front total cost was 40 bucks

it was freezing and raining but thats not stopping this guy from making more progress

and the finished product about two days later

Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

so the plan for today was to reseal my 90-91 integra s1 trans

first thing i did was get rid on the front mount
and trans mount bracket and tossed them in the trash


removed the casing


cleaned out the metal shavings on the magnet and checked the gears out for wear and all seems good


added my gasket makers to make a new seal and closed her up


replaced the throwout bearing


the old one was still fine but because it had a broken corner it had to be replaced


tried out my clutch disk to make sure it fits
because theres two different sizes for the da cable tranns
one size is for the 90-91 and the other for the 92-93
the s1 trans is the 90-91 lots of people dont know that little peace of info


going with a stock replacment clutch
because theres no need to go the go fast route on this build

in going from a 70 hp 1.5 to maybe a 130 hp 2.2 littler and thats wheel hp the only number that matters so the power is going to be there
but ill just be running a stock ish motor from a crv so ill be able to leave the state when ever i feel like without having to worry about
things braking
and the final pic with the engine mount on


more updates soon

yesterday was a really good day to paint something so i got started with my front door panals
this is the spray i used


went with the flat black because your interior should not be shiny to the point that its a problem with the sun
the paint well have the same gloss that the normal interior is sopposed to have once you apply your armorall or your sun of a gun or your dollar store cleaner
or my favorite the baby oil soup and water mix


i bought one can and from experience i know that its only enough to do two door panals so thats all i removed from the car to spray
enjoy








for now i only plan on painting all four door panals and my blue stereo center peace that i got from my doner car a while back

my car has a nick name now given from my friends (the rolls) and the name will be painted on the dash once that gets painted
but that wont be for a long while

more updates soon
