    Suspension is done

    I finally finished installing the rear disc brakes as well as the Tokico HP's and Lightspeed springs, so I thought I'd share a couple of pics with you guys:







    You can see the rear disc inside of my ARC rim there... The other pics show off the stance and dealer-installed moonroof as well as the solid red tails and tinted corners/headlight/grill trim pieces.

    Next on the agenda will be to fix the rust over the back wheel wells, removing the amber from the bumper lights, shaving the emblems except for the front and back "H's" which will be done in gold to match the rims and pinstripes (the front chrome strip on the grill will also be gold), and installing the Boston/Fosgate/Nakamichi stereo setup.

    so is that dealer installed moonroof basically the a stock setup? or is it aftermarket and you just had the dealer install it?

    According to Lightspeed the springs I used are only a one inch drop; the ride is pretty stiff considering the higher spring rates and non-progessive design, but I like it that way.

    The moonroof was installed by the dealer for the original owner (I am the second owner) when she bought the car. Fortunately she saved alot of the paperwork for the coupe so it was esy to figure out that it was a completely custom aftermarket job done through the dealer by C&C up by Detroit. It functions just like the sedan's factory moonroof but it also has a "tilt" feature and can retract the glass completely into the roof, unlike the sedan's roof which goes in about 90%.

    The wind visor for the moonroof is a factory Honda piece off of a 91 EX with slightly modifed brackets for my application. No stick-on crap for me.

    Drop looks good but I don't like the wheels.
    No projects. Life consumes my time and money.

    Looks good, how long did it take you to do the rear disc brakes? I'm curious as I need to plan out time to do it soon too. ^^

    I took my time and worked a few hours here and there... I kept running into rusted bolts that I had to cut out... Other than that, it was a pretty straightforward job. Swapping the proportioning valves was alot easier than I expected (easy access on the passenger shock tower) but the e-brake cables were kind of a pain to run (had to move the exhaust heat shield out of the way). I also grabbed a set of new rotors since they were $16.99 each at Autozone.

    The interior and engine bay still look like shit... hence the lack of pics.

    And yeah, I got the money order Tuesday and sent the stuff out yesterday; UPS estimated that you should have the parts Friday.
