    Thanks everyone. There will be updates this weekend as I will be doing a few things to it.

    as for the muffler...we had to have 2 pretty big dudes stand on the bumper of my car and jump some while we had 2 jack stands underneath the spare tire well and dent it in so the muffler would clear. If only I had pictures..ha

    i kinda like the exhaust, it's definitely different. i think it would be a clean cruiser without all those stickers on the back window... but hey, it's your car and if you want stickers on it then do it.

    keep up the good work.

    NOTE: I have a new valve cover and new cap and rotor and so on. There is A LOT of cleaning to be done and a few things rerouted when I have the time after work or on the weekend. I just needed the MAJOR work done over the weekend so I could drive.

    THE BAY....
    BEFORE


    here we go.............

    me undoing that ONE bolt on the back of the headlight where my wrench has less than an inch to move..so it took a minute to remove it.





    Driver side loom inside the car.





    Grommet it came through.



    wiring it back up after extending.



    Waiting to be loomed up and cleaned up.



    Passenger side.


    Grommet i pulled it through.


    Where i pulled it through on the pass. side. Most people are like wtf..how'd you get it past the blower motor...i stuck a straightened out wire coat hanger down the hole and taped the wires to the end of it..then pulled them through.



    Random mess shot.



    After??? I still have a few plugs to hide. I was running out of daylight and did what i could. Plugs are extended. I just need to move them. The bay is DIRTY as f**k.



    some cleaning?



    Look at the firewall and then back at the rad support over the headlight....mmm...clean. now i need a toothbrush for those hard to reach spots...and then a lot of time to scrub and clean it.





    Before.



    After.

    oh no! haha I have a new VC from Honda it's mint and perfect. Factory paint and all. Just need to get the bay clean enough for it to be put on. The bay is a long way away from being done.

    I had one of these as a first car. I miss it dearly. Few things though, the "EF" on the head light is stupid, since its not an actual EF, but an ED. And the exhaust would look sick as all get out......If it wasn't dual. But props for doing what you want. =D

    Im aware it's not an true EF. Just like all these kids claiming EG hatches when they aren't even an EG. It's just what they are referred to as.

    "And the exhaust would look sick as all get out......If it wasn't dual"
    This sentence seems to not make sense..^^
