THE UPDATE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR...

Still need to cut & buff the front bumper, door caps, side skirts, mirrors, mirror covers, tail gate trim and other misc. items, and reinstall the glass, lights etc...

Ambitionz Auto Salon did an AMAZING paint job on this one. They put in way more hours than originally planned and it looks amazing in person. You can't find a single tape line on the body, because there aren't any. The Lexus 460 Exhaust and the JDM Tail gate look OEM to me, like they were made that way to begin with. The antenna delete, wiper delete, emblem delete all turned out great.

I plan on changing every bolt on the van eventually with a stainless steel one so it doesn't rust quite as much. It seems the factory washers are the culprit to most of the corrosion. Stainless is a better solution since it doesn't rust.

All of the bolts in the engine bay however are getting a billet aluminum fender washer treatment as well:

Found that a few of the studs on my air struts were stripped / broken so I decided to tear down and replace all of them with grade 8 hardware. Cut / Welded new studs in place. Also refurb'd the top hats and cleaned / lubed the pillow ball mount.

While I was in the fenders, decided to gut and strip them down, and reline them with truck bed liner. It's a lot tougher than regular spray-on under coating which can flake off after a couple of years of abuse...I just used a wire brush and brake cleaner to strip and prep the surface. This should be more durable protection, and cut down on road noise as well.

I just found this build and i had to say that your Odessy is awesome, definitely one of a kind. Your attention to detail is crazy in a good way. The Lexus exhaust is cool as hell.

It's already been done, it works fine. H22 / H23 is a direct swap into the 95-98 Odyssey, it's the same as swapping into a 94-97 Accord.

Started to work on pulling the cruise control system out and cleaning up the engine bay a bit. Pulled the stock battery, stock battery tray and a bunch of un-necessary brackets and bolts out. Replaced the battery with an Odyssey High Performance battery, and a Odyssey Billet Aluminum Battery Tray. For a cleaner look, I am transverse-mounting the battery, as opposed to the stock horizontal positioning. All of the bolts in the engine bay are being replaced with Stainless Steel hardware & Billet Aluminum fender washers.

Good bye cruise control & rusty battery tray
