    Re: Air ride!

    It's been a little bit of time since I updated this, and it's not like I actually have any content, I just like typing words and keeping the mods busy. Well wait, maybe I do have a few updates;
    Happy Holidays! I hope your new years and Christmas and other assorted holidays were a blast, hope you all got the car parts you were hoping for. I got a battery! It's pretty nice, and will hopefully hold up against the twin lifesucking force of the compressors constant pull. (I'm just kidding, once my leaks are sorted out, I'm sure everything will be fine)

    And I also installed my powder coated strut forks! They're a pretty simple and cheap job, but I was mostly using it as an introduction to the material and get familiar with it.

    And I also wrapped up (literally) my spare tire well. I later took out the outer ring of sound baffling because fire, but kept the inner. Turns out, it doesn't do that much. Compressors are just naturally really loud.

    And after much deliberation, I decided I would swap out my 3Geez sticker on the tank for something a little more lighthearted.

    (And if you dig it, let me know! I'm cutting a handful of these and I don't mind making a few extras.)


    But, for the most part, I'm about done here as someone recently talked me into doing a twin Weber B18 engine swap. Goodbye, savings, you will be eternally missed.

    Nice! I can't wait to paint my suspension parts. And I'm jealous of the dual Webers in the future! I wanted to get the ones recently for sale on the facebook page but I just can't afford them and a new intake manifold. Going with a 38/38 instead, should do the job haha. Happy New Year!

    Re: Air ride!

    Hey guys! Figured I should drop a tiny update since it's been a little while.

    At the current moment, there's a few slow leaks I need to sort out, and a little bit of wrapping up before I can call this 100% done, but for the most part this thread is pretty much sealed up until someone has a question in two years

    But I got my Vinyl Cutter up and Running, and so my tank received a slightly more fitting logo over the initial 3Geez sticker I had planned.

    And pardon the dirty trunk, the project is currently on hold!
    -received_1555098111241020-jpg

    And with that said, I'll be working on my Quad Weber B18 swap until someone needs me! (goodbye, yet another 4k!)

    DCOE powered B18 in a 3g Accord? Yes! This is an awesome build. Can't wait to see more. Really doing this car up right! Keep the updates coming!

    That's right! Decided I need to absolutely bury this car in essentially unnecessary modifications, so that's what's next on the list! I'll be sure to make an actual post in the Engine Swaps thread once the engine finds itself in the 'bay!
