    Newbie

    Hey guys,

    It all started with my power steering pump failing on my '07 V6 Accord. The mechanic told me the price and I immediately went on youtube to watch videos and did it myself. Now, I have a small toolbox and am trading in a guitar of mine for a mint 1984 Accord with a blown motor.

    Now, I know that jumping from power steering pump to full blown engine rebuild (with engine swap being the most likely route I'll take) is quite a leap, but I have been enjoying my time tinkering around with my car and want to learn the ins and out by doing rather than waiting until last minute due to being scared of losing my DD.

    I will definitely be lurking in the forums raking in any information on the Accord since youtube videos on the car seem to only be commercials of the car when it first came out.

    Thank you for hearing me out and I hope to be able to meet a whole lot of you guys!

    I will post some shortly. I'm trying to get the right angles on it, haha. Yours looks awesome! I am jealous of the climate you get to keep yours in over in Cali. I'm in the Northeast and have to prep for these seasons coming in.
