Part of the problem holding me back was the lack of another vehicle. So.. I decided, since I'm young, and I have no good reason not to fuck my whole life up, why not just blow a bunch of money on some cars? I wanted to have a secondary daily in line so I could park the prelude for a good 6 months and not be affected. Kept looking at pretty cheap cars and I just refused to buy something that I wasn't going to like.. I'm picky and my prelude is sooo thrashed (in my eyes), which is why I want to restore it.. I didn't want to buy another car I'm going to hate looking at.. So I held out for a couple more weeks and ended up getting a pretty good deal on a clean title, numbers matching throughout the car, SSBP GSR. It's my first b series, which I know nothing about.. But.. I'm kind of excited to play with something a little out of my element.
First picture of the new car. I actually really like this color.. Usually I'm pretty boring and just like white, black, or red.. But this fake pearl color kinda got to me..
The car came with GSR blades and a spare set of del sol five spokes. At least I think that's what they came off of.
Decided to order a few things.
216 screws and about 43278 sq.ft of bubble wrap later... We were getting somewhere. Pardon the clutter, everything's being taken to where the car will get the overhaul over the course of this week.
Sold the GSR blades and fat fives since I had these coming along with the front end. I know I said this was going to be Spoon themed, but these will be the only mugen/spoon crossover on the car. It won't be a complete Spoon theme but.. It's definitely dominate.
My horrible attempt at pretending I can edit pictures.
Put the mr5s on the car.
They need a good polishing, but they're in great shape.
Efrin's bay is a huge inspiration to me. And ultimately "similar" to what I would like for the dc2.
I'll finally get to put this to use. I ordered a new filter from RHDJapan and it should be here this week.
I have Spoon res covers but there's no point on posting a picture of those. Ordering the strut bar and radiator hoses, oil and radiator caps, as well as a few tune up parts (head gasket, vc gasket, vtec solenoid gasket, plugs, wires, etc), tomorrow after work when I get a chance to go to the bank.
As far as plans for the car, I'm going to pull the motor and do all the maintenance. Pressure wash the bay after I tuck the headlight harnesses and get rid of the power steering and air conditioning bullshit. Won't be a full tuck, and won't be shaved, but hopefully it'll look nice. Might take it up north and hopefully have the chance to do some amateur auto cross events. Import Faceoff is coming to Woodburn here In about 5 weeks and I'm hoping to have the front end on an painted and the motor back in by then so I can enter the car show, but I work full time so we'll see how it goes.
That's pretty much all I've got for now. Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the engine bay. I'll update later this week when the car makes it out to where I'll be doing the work.
