Like razordave said the dry ice makes the sound deadening very brittle and much easier to remove.

Inner tie rods are on my sooner than later list. How are your bellows (boots)?


The boots were in good shape.

I actually sent the shift linkage to Wicked Innovations they welded in the new U Joint. It made the shifter feel much better and I have little to no play. Check this link for more info http://www.crxcommunity.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=23882

Thanks I'll probably go get them put on at the dealership as with the wheel bearing because I don't have the tools up here to do the job, and there is nothing but snow on the ground. Had my final job interview today and was hired to work on the weekends. So hopefully here soon the parts will start to roll in.

Here is some pictures from summer. I ran into a 1st gen that was for sale so it was a good opportunity to get a few pictures.

Then ran into this up at my school

Random picture for no reason lol

So I moved back home from college because I had a great job opportunity pop up. I got the job and I love it, it's great pay, and i am back home with family and friends. I can actually afford parts now so that is a major plus.

Not much of an update, but I did get my inner tie rod put in. Also the wheel bearing is ready to be pressed in, I just have to find somebody with a press. The next thing I will be doing is a timing belt job. It started slapping while I was up at school so I haven't been driving it. Sorry no pictures of anything, I will go get some of it torn apart in the next few days.

I did do something though! Got it for $100, just needs some love to clean it up.

Well it's been awhile guys. The car is now in the garage up on jack stands getting all new suspension! I started with some Skunk2 UCAsImage

Everything is being either getting replaced or sand blasted and powder coated. Also will be putting some new undercoat in the wheel wells Image

I ended up buying my own press to do the bushing work. I went with a 20 ton just in case I need it in the future Image

Did some work today. Tore down the rest of the passenger side and put some 3M undercoating in the wheel well. Now I need to take all the bushing out of the LCA, and take the Hub, and wheel bearing out of the spindle to get everything on this side powder coated. Here's some pictures.

The 3M coating is really nice and seems like it will hold up wonderful. Worth the $11 a can
Image

Everything except the spindle ready for powdercoating.

Bought myself a nice Christmas present as well

Tore my new to me spindle apart today to get ready for sandblasting and my new old Hub are different sizes. New is smaller. Why are they different sizes? Both fit on the axle so the splines are correct.
Image

Plus new hub has this, old one didn't have the cover.

great work so far. I'm dreading the day I do bushings. Just curious, how was the pricing for powdercoating those bits?

Here is everything installed into the spindle. Tearing the driver side apart as we speak, I think I will be taking the engine out so I can get the bay painted and also get the subframe powder coated before i throw all the new suspension in.

Update on everything happening.
I undercoated the fender wells and and the bottom of the chassis
Image
Image
Image
Some more powdercoated goodness [emoji7]
Image
Got the calipers ceramic coated because powder would flake off at high heat. The ceramic is good for 2000 degrees F
Image

Need to figure out what spring rates I'm going to be running then I can order my coilovers! Probably go with BC racing coils. As soon as it's back on the ground it's going to the paint shop to respray the engine bay and then I can move onto the back suspension and engine stuff

As long as you are still enjoying it, that is all that matters.
