Yer the cf bonnet is off Ray - as is the lip
Just need to finish it off with a cf rear spoiler and mirror covers as it has a cf rear number plate surround on the way
Also thinking of a cf rear diffuser too so it will match my grey 205 in appearance

Update - I really hate myself right now.

Getting distracted and started 7 different projects at once is really coming back to bite me in the @$$. kindasad.gif

I'm slowly trying to get back on track and took the week off to get back underneath my car - and slowly start putting it back together.

The rear suspension/brake assembly is finally complete, here are some teaser pics (iphone pics/flash - sorry for $hitty quality):





Had to reassemble the coilovers (I missed washers on the original install), finally installed my Stainless Steel Braided Lines, and Coated the brake calipers RED. biggrin.gif

Also, finished the install of the 7th gen steering wheel, w/ retrofited 6gc cruise stalk... didn't snag pics of that however. kindasad.gif

Decided to give my baby a little more juice than the 5S could offer... tongue.gif



Went and checked it out after work today - 3rd Gen 3SGE w/ 98K on it. My mechanic was shocked at how clean it was. We opened up the TB valve and looked inside the intake plenum and we were both amazed at how clean it was...

Can't wait to get it home and start tearing into it. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif YAY!

Soon - I pick up the engine on Saturday, plan on working on it over the winter - then probably drop it in come spring time.

Sooo... not soon enough I guess. tongue.gif

Hopefully I will be right behind you in this part of the build as soon as I start working and saving up. MOORRRREEEE PROGRESS UDATES SIR!!!!!!

Oh yeah, now woud be the best time to clean ur engine bay since its free of the engine. Deff try using armorall wheel cleaner, gunk engine degreaser, and a pressure washer or water hose. Then to shine her up armor all tire shine or gunk engine shine. Ive used these two methods for years (since my accord in high school 2003) and hasnt failed me yet.

Update.

Tonight I installed the front coilovers, driverside JDM fender, and reinserted the driveshafts so the front hub washer wouldn't crush under the pressure. The I reattached the GTFOUR hood, put the wheels back on, and pushed it out of the garage onto the driveway where it now sits under a car cover...

Didn't reinstall the newly painted front calipers... don't have a brake system right now anyways, so I figured, "Why Bother...?"

Here are some shatty update pics for yall... new 3rd Gen 3SGE comes tomorrow morning! YAY!







A height that Jon would be proud of... tongue.gif - I actually had troubles getting my 4" floor jack out from underneath the car... :S

Yeah I don't think I have a choice in the matter... I haven't had a lot of time since the engine was brought home to look at the downpipe, but I don't think it'll match up to the 5S's piping... biggrin.gif yay for me!

You can use stock piping. I did with my BEAMS. But the 5S uses 2" piping and the 3S uses 2.25", so it would be better to upgrade.

Thinking about uping the piping diameter to 2.25", tossing a resonator on the line and keeping the piping as straight as possible, under the rear axels and "tilting the can", yes.

Don't tell my wife that! I was hoping to redo the entire pipe set up... tongue.gif

Is that a c-one front bumper I see? By golly I think it is. Should be a worthing something later on down the years since there is no more c-one frown.gif

LOL - yeah - its made for the ST202-204 chassis... so my front end will look like your front end (the hood to bumper gap).

I don't think its genuine C-One tho - I can't find the stamp on the inside of the bumper, but I didn't look that hard either. I did fit it to the front end when I first got it and the fitment was great, so very little body work will be needed. (I do plan on modifying the vents on it).

Very nice. Ive heard from a few people that the hood gap is actually quite functional when it comes to cooling the engine bay. As the air is pushed in thru the gap it also pushes the hot out from the top cowl and the two rears. But the gap can be an eye sore to a lot of folks too, lol

I could see that... the gap looks sexy on some cars, but the bumper already has that vent right there... so as far as adding function for airflow; I don't think that gap is going to be sticking around on mine. tongue.gif
