    Ports shmorts, fuel is still going to stick like a booger!

    Doesn't really matter THAT much though. I'm guessing after all of this and a good tune (Please tell me you're not sticking with the 3g PGMFI) you'll be putting down great numbers. =)

    What kind of rad is that, Koyo?

    and what's up with the coolant lines? Do I see copper?

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Yes the engine is done... I gotta finish the manifolds before I fire it up though... The Rad. is stock not sure what brand.. The coolant lines are heavy duty marine hoses, I should never have to replace them... The don't bend so I used copper elbows to gettem where they needed to go...

    N thanks for the congrats.. We're actually already married.. But most of her family don't know yet so we're havin a big wedding this summer... Our 1 yr annv. is on the 8th of this month...

    Hell ya!! Kind of makes you wonder if it will start at first, but none the less nice vid. Sounds sweet. I wouldn't drive it too far with it having the body parts missing. Anyhow, sweet!!! Sounds good. Good work Jigabu.

    Interior Update

    So heres a qucik update on my progress... I've still failed to touch the body... But the interior is comin along nicely... I was tryin to do some things Ive never seen before and so far it's successful... Now I did say I've never seen some of these ideas before, not that no one else has done them... I am however hoping Im pioneering these ideas... So enough with the chit-chat here's some eye candy





    That is a real wood floor... I'm trimmin out the rest today... The carpet is not preformed the only way I'm making it work with minimal wrinkles is because I'm cutting so much out of it... The seat is my old driverseat (which is a crx si seat) recovered in black and blue specked tweed by yours truley... The subbox will be mirrored on the other side and both covered in black tweed and padding...
    I didn't want to get rid of the back seat totally so that I have somewhere for my dog to ride with the wife and I, and for a babyseat one day... I have already made a slogan for the seat..."if you can fit you can sit".. It would not comfortably accomedate someone my size for a ride across town...
    K thats it for now... Alot more to go... But I'll GIT R DUN

    Interior Update 2.0

    So slowly it's all falling together... Unfortunately it's been to cold to do any glass work so I've been pushing on with the interior... The trunk is done, aside from the nitrous bottle, hose and wire installation... I just gotta finish trimming out the driverside floor board and recover the driver seat and the bottome part of the passenger seat and install them... And make the custom door panels, cover and install... So heres some eyecandy...
