    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Bit of an update today, got pretty much most of the interior out after some shopping. Picked up a few things to repair those door panels, and some stuff to help make removing the factory sound mat a little easier(hah..). Oh and I got those fuel filters, thanks Mark you were right on the mark now she runs like a dream and has a mega weight removal haha. It does pick up better though thats forsure!

    They had this in stock today so I picked that up, damn $8 for this gasket. Also have a manifold hose on order, should be in tues.


    Interior yanked out.


    A little messy.






    It's pretty messy back there, probably due to the holes in the rear quarters.. I got pretty much the back half of the factory mat scraped off, get more tomorrow. Then vaccum, wipe down and start applying the B-Quiet.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Got more done yesterday, pretty much all the factory mat off except for the drivers side. I was working on cleaning/repairing those door panels. I picked up some Gunk Upholstery cleaner on sale for $5! So I proceded to take that door carpet and scrub it.. the water comming off was just about black it was freaking nasty. But now it looks brand new! I got most of the other parts clean too so I will get it back together and take a pic(glue drying).

    Today I did a quick clean of the interior and wiped down the back(since its the cleanest) I figured I will start there and work my way up and leave the floor till last so I don't stomp all over it. I read that using big pieces is the best as it has more contact, ect. which is fine but DAMN it is hard to get it into place when there are cables and such hanging about. This stuff is sticky as hell, once it's on there good luck getting it off.. so gotta make sure placement is right the first time!



    First bit started.


    Gonna take me a while but going to be worth it.

    After taking out all the factory mat I went for a drive to see how it is, and holy shit is it loud! With all the panels and everything gone there is nothing to stop all that noise comming in.. can't even hear myself think haha. So Cheese I hope you know what your getting into, because it's going to be a loud drone when you drive.

    Oh and the roller I got with the bquiet is pretty junky so I think I will have to pick up another one, more to come.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    i'm sticking to the gutted rear for comfort's sake. it's nice to lose the weight, but it doesn't make a big enough difference to warrant losing all of the comforts

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Wow almost a month and no update?!! Well I haven't been doing nothing thats forsure. I have been hording all sorts of things. Hmm where to start.. well I have been slowly getting the bquiet down, pretty much all the back is done for now. I want to wait to do the floor till after I get the exhaust done.

    Parts I picked up new/used:

    Heater hose in various sizes to replace the junky ones
    New rad hoses
    New fuel filter
    All new injector seals
    New alternator belt
    New muffler/cat
    All new wheel bearings, got those front balljoints installed too(spindle)
    Master cylinder
    2x O2 sensors
    Temp sensor
    Gray rear panels
    Teg seats(hopefully make them work)
    Prelude upper arms(balljoints comming in tomorrow)
    Gas tank!!!
    Crap load of paint and other stuff... probably more but I dont remember it all.

    Got those DC bar mounts off at the powder coater right now, waiting on those. Ahhh lots of stuff done and not much on the car haha(yet!)

    Heres my modified underpulley, damn the thing weighs half of what it used to! Much nicer!


    Spotted this on the car I was nabbing items from, was pretty new so I grabbed it.. needs a clean!


    Latest engine shot.


    I need to get some bends shipped in since it seems no one around here has a mandrel bender.




    Seats in good condition, need a clean and hope I can make them work.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Heres where I am on the damping,







    Thats pretty much what a 50sq will do, mind you there is probably still 10sq left give or take, so I should be able to get most of the floor back there too. Just to give you guys an idea.

    Got these guys back a week or so ago, im blasting them tomorrow then getting them painted up. They will be going on there before the motor because my balljoints are shitty and eating my new tires quick. So after that I will get the hardlines made and put them on asap.


    Gas tank!!


    Well I found out at PnP that they punch all the gas tanks so I thought I was pretty much screwed, however Gemini had his old DD kickin around waiting to go to PnP so I was lucky enough to get that and its in great shape to boot. (Thank you again man I owe ya a drink! )

    Oh and that windshield is from the coupe, I will get that put in sometime soon. The parts car was scraped up onto a flat deck and gone from my eyes in like 10 minutes haha. Sad to see her go but its for the best.

    So I have tons to do and sort out, I will be getting these new brakes in, exhaust done and then the new engine in all next month(I don't want to wait anymore!).

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Yea it sucks about the gas tanks, they do it so they can get it out and into the yard faster I suppose. It was my last piece for the EFI swap

    This is what I got done today after work, took a damn good hour of blasting haha.





    Came out clean, going to be doing more on thursday not sure if I will get it all done though.. soon enough.

    what kind of media did you use for the blasting? They did come out great too btw. Now just hit them with some rattle-can primer to keep them from flash rusting.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    I got that spindle primered up today after work, I'll have some pics later on!

    Used a mixture of glass, with I think aluminum oxide? and some slag haha. Compresser couldn't really keep up so it took a long ass while, I should get most of the rest done tomorrow since I have it off! Post some pics tomorrow of goodies too.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Lookin good as usual roach, thats the same muffler I just had put back on my accord along with 2.25" piping, and a magnaflow resonator, I LOOOVE the sound, but without a cat now it is a bit loud lol.

    Also, I see you're going grey with the interior, I just picked up a grey armrest at picknpull on the weekend, and can get the rest of the centre console if need be... ive already got 2 of them though, if you want one let me know...?

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    Didn't see your reply till now Hash, I've got all the grey stuff from the coupe(which has the armrest/cupholders). However the rear panels don't work so I had to grab some, figured it would be easier to pay 20$ for now instead of paint them only for them not to match.. I'll figure something out.

    Anyway, been busy blasting and painting.

    All these parts have been blasted, cleaned to hell, primered and painted.









    As you can see, I have crap EVERYWHERE. No workspace.. I really need to sort out my shit haha.

    Heres the door panel that has been completely rebuilt you could say. Everythings been scrubbed down, glued back together and what not. Looks pretty friggin good I say!



    Also ordered the last pieces of my exhaust(some bends), also ordered a 180 to make a CAI with. I will have to get a filter for that next, I also have some suspension on order too so that should be here in a few weeks.

    Oh hash, have you done the push button conversion yet?

    Thanks I hope to have them in by the end of the weekend, not much else to do besides some assembly/cleaning.

    89coupe, I didn't use anything to paint the door panel, it's the factory OEM colour.

    Re: 87roach's 3g wip

    ...but did you do high-heat paint on the rotors? Looks better and better every day too. Damn I'm jealous.

    See what happens when you have 2 kids, a wife, and a 60+ hr/wk job on top of a 2.5 hr daily commute.

    Dammit. Keep it up man. For now I'll just keep living vicariously through you. Pretty easy to do if you ask me too, seeing as though you do have a damn white DX hatch to top it off. :/
