    I think I want one of these on FP. This is the thread to post progress on your projects, or post what you've been working on. Mechanically inclined people unite!

    Anyways, I spent four hours popping an H22 out of a friends prelude today. Fucking pain in the ASS. LITERALLY. MY ASS HURTS. fuck you, crown nuts. Also filled the oil back up on my CRX, because it's leaking or burning it. Burning it probably. POS.

    My '93 DX Coupe is still leaking too. I think my VC is warped, gonna change it tomorrow with the one off of my friend's '89 CRX (D15B Non-VTEC), and polish it up.

    Sometime soon gotta put an HF tranny in said CRX. It was an auto when I got it, and then my friend got it and he's recently bought an HF shell with everything for the swap. We've got it all pulled, just have to put it in.

    I changed the reverse light bulb.

    I've had a replacement sitting on my desk for about 3 weeks and I finally got round to the arduous challenge of it.

    Seriously though it took about 30 seconds.

    I was thinking of doing a H22 swap for my Accord and maybe a manual conversion too

    But I have no idea where to get a H22
    For the manual I'll probably spend a fortune but I should be able to take a gearbox out of a wrecked GSR

    Don't.

    If its and F22 you are fine just sticking with it. You won't be gaining anything if you swap it. Just a waste of time and money.

    Get a manual swap for your F22.

    Well got a new stereo custom installed into the volvo, I'll post pics when I get around to it.

    I helped the guy a bit, but didn't do it all by myself, had to tear apart the back seats and the dash to get it done. It never had a place to put two rear speakers so I helped wire them in.

    The Stereo by the way:
    Dual XD1222

    he took a really crappy picture as before, and a decent picture as the after, so he could have done nothing and it would still look 10x better

    Excuse me while my leafsprings get better times on the Nurburgring than many European sports cars (ZR1)

    Plus they're not conventional leaf springs as you might think.

    What did I do today?

    Drove my wagon, that counts as DIY. Tomorrow I need to do a compression test on a motor and decide if I'm going to tear it down before I drop it in.
