Same here. The swap is intriguing...not too many people have done it which leads me to believe its not easy. Love thr progress on your car too! Can I ask where you bought the cup partition?

Pan clearance is fine; nothing to worry about there. Thanks for the kind words!

Owner said it was easy for him because he has, and I quote, "great, big balls." Thank you for the kind words! I purchased the cover and housing from Amayama.

Got my RE-71Rs mounted today; camber bolts were also installed at this time. Car feels like a laser-guided missile now!

Front:
-1.8 camber (left) || -1.8 camber (right)
3.0 caster (left) || 3.1 caster (right)
0.00 toe (left) || -0.01 toe (right)

Rear:
-0.9 camber (left) || -1.1 camber (right)
0.07 toe (left) || 0.08 toe (right)



I also had a paint correction done and ceramic coating applied. This is a nifty before/after picture I put together.

Yeah that hood came out amazing looking. Dark colored cars are such a pain but look great when cleaned up.

Thanks for the kind words, marmaladedad and GolNat!

In other news, Spoon Sports radiator cap installed. I don't think you can go wrong with simple and subtle.

I also went and spectated Round 1 of Vtec Club USA at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway! Lots of cool, and super fast, cars out on the racetrack. My personal favorite was the Spoon CL7!

Thanks for sharing that! I found his blog post where he talks about how he acquired the CL7.

It's finally sunny outside, so I snapped some pictures of the paint. This color is truly beautiful in the sunlight!

The sparkle in your paint brings back memories of those car-merry-go-rounds I used to ride as a kid. It brings back fond memories.
