    Hello Hak5 forums!
  4. Awesome! You have the KA24DE engine? Those are pretty tight cars, I've always liked Nissans.
  5. <commence head light restoration> So, got an urge to clean out, and restore my head lights. I started removing the bumper: Screws, were so tight I stripped most of them: Did some research and found out I was taking the bumper off the complete wrong way: Removed the bumper, the much easier way but only after pounding a 3/8 socket onto a 10mm socket. Some one else had stripped the bolt, but it was coming off one way or another: This clip wouldn't come off either, I just cut the wires. Will re solder them when I put it back together: Nasty blue bulbs, they were this color in every socket: Bam: Stepped on my good corner: Everything is off: Saw some dirt and grease, what did I do? Cleaned IT! Nice and clean: Well thats it for now, I came inside to eat, and as soon as I'm done, its back to the garage to take the lenses apart, clean them out, polish and put back together. I'll take some pictures of that and will try to get them up tonight! Painted the hood today! Painting the hood took something like 315 grams of NH538. And a lot of clear coat, not to mention the reducers and stuff. Took about 3 hours to get it sprayed. I haven't wet sanded it yet, will do tomorrow. Looked like this in the morning: Paint formula: Not to much mixing: Trippy: Reduced: Ready to spray: Primed: A good friend of mine, who owns the business spraying. He's been doing it for 20 years now, hes pretty pro at it: The truck where it all happens. Theres about 9 of these running around DFW working at dealerships and such, I've assisted on quite a few. Hopefully will get one of my own someday: My friends 91 Geo metro also got some work, it sees about 1000 miles a week of travel. You should have seen the rock chips on it: Sprayed: And cleared, the final product, looks great, now I just need a paintless dent man to go around the car and hood and it will be in top shape: The car is coming along great, will post update after its wet sanded and front end is put back together! Headlights turned out pretty good: I still need to buff the fogs, but at least there easy to take off. Hood is so fresh, I still need to wet sand and buff a bit more. I also need to find the trim for the drivers side, if you have it, LMK! Also worked on my non-cracked bumper light, I think I'm going to keep them stock for now, I dont have money to spend on true JDM ambers yet. Before: Wash and wetsand: Buffed, need to clear them: On another note, In the last day we've had something like 4 inches of hard rain. I think its been the first rain since I've bought the car. I was glad to find out nothing leaks, passenger side carpet was dry as a bone, hatch too!
  6. **descriptions may not make sense, I just copied and pasted my post from my build thread at g2ic.com. Motor is coming very soon, I'll am planning on boosting to 7 PSI, after rebuilding the motor. I know its really not computer related (there will be a few wiring harness hacks and possibly a chipping of the ECU) but I'd thought I would share!** I just got my second car, a 92 Integra LS shell. The body has 130,xxx miles, new paint , mint interior and a pretty straight body. After selling my 91 Civic EF, I started looking for a new project, upon searching craigslist I found this integra. It was in pretty rough shape and the seller wanted $500 for it. Here are the pictures he sent me via craigslist before I went out to see it: As you can see the car wasn't looking to good, the interior was riced out and it need a whole lot of TLC. About a week later me and a friend (I believe hes a member on this board) vtecdreamer went out to take a look at it. I ended up buying it that night and having it delivered for $400. Once I got it home first thing to do was start de-ricing. I took off the type R badge in the back, and starting ripping out the interior: Next day I took the hood off and up to my work (I work at a self service carwash) and got the underside all cleaned up, and oil free: Also, the red spray paint came off on a few interior pieces: After searching for a matching interior dye (that I couldn't find) I went out and got 2 cans of Satin black Krylon Fusion. I washed all the pieces that I was going to paint with dishsoap and prepped a few with wetsanding. I then sprayed each piece with about 4 coats and the outcome was amazing! The Satin Black looks very similar to the original interior color of palmy blue, its hard to tell the difference. Didn't know about the 15 image limit, so heres the rest of my first post: Heres a picture of the cleaned hood: http://i192.photobucket.com/albums/z60/jda...ra/IMG_1279.jpg And the not so great topside of the hood, which will be painted sometime in the next 2 weeks: http://i192.photobucket.com/albums/z60/jda...ra/IMG_1268.jpg Started cleaning the engine bay little by little: http://i192.photobucket.com/albums/z60/jda...ra/IMG_1281.jpg Shaved the front emblem: I'm looking for a b18a1 with a standard transmission that is in good shape, so if your in the DFW area let me know! Hope a motor will be in within 2 months time! I'm still decided on what I want to do with the car, if I'm going to keep it n/a or boost, maybe even ls/vtec? Who knows? Only time will tell! Well thats it for today, I leave you with a few pictures of how the car sits. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to hit me up. Just thought I would post some pictures of my last car: The day I bought it for $400 Towed it home for $120 $40 distributor and ignition coil = car running Sold for $1400. Today I did a bit of work on the Honda. I cleaned the nasty copper AC line. Anyone looking to get the same results just needs 3M rubbing compound and a scotchbrite pad: Some done: Done: Materials: <random pictures> Looks like I need a new axle: Engine bay shot: Haven't cleaned the hatch yet, looks like someone's relocated battery spilled, qutie a few times: ^ whole car needs carpet replacing, but after motor. At least I have a strut brace: Washed her today: A bit of scratch removal and waxxing too: Everything accept the hood looks like this:
  7. Picture from wikipedia with Che and his radio: Listening to a Zenith "TransOceanic" shortwave receiver are (seated from the left) Rogelio Oliva, José María Martínez Tamayo (known as "Mbili" in the Congo and "Ricardo" in Bolivia), and Guevara. Standing behind them is Roberto Sánchez ("Lawton" in Cuba and "Changa" in the Congo). I need help, finding a transaction record from zenith, serial number, parts number, of that radio in the picture, it belonged to Che Guevara. I'm calling on Hak5 For some help, hope you all can come through. It may be sitting in my house. :shock:
  8. Hey guys! I Have returned to say a hello to all! I know a lot of the new guys probably don't know who I am but a few of you older members will probably remember me. So recently I have taken a long needed break from technology. That meant getting out of the house, hanging out with friends working and so on. I've recently have become involved in a new hobby, working on hondas. I've started, buying and selling hondas, I recently purchased a 91 civic hatchback, for 400$ dead put 40 dollars worth a parts and about 10 hours of labor in it and sold it for 1500$ Its pretty fun, I driving and working on these little cars. (btw, I'm not into all that ricey stuff, no big spoilers, no huge loud fartpipes JDM ftw) I've also been doing work assisting painting cars and such. Yup, thats what I've been doing lately, just thought I would drop by and say Hi to everyone at hak5.
