I have the parts sourced for the re-invention of my bay.. Just taking delivery of the turbo from Ultimate Racing hopefully on Friday. My goal is to get the intake manifold all trimmed and ready for fitting tonight..

So sad that those a$$holes had to ruin my engine bay.. it was nice and pretty

Misty water colored memories of the way we were.....

I have a question for you Guru's. A/c related. I'm slowly working on cleaning things up. More planning than anything right now. Whatever happens, I drive 30k+ miles a year on it, so I want to keep my a/c. BUT, as of right now, all the lines are cleared (TMIC rubbed a hole in one). So I replaced the damaged line, but wondering how you guys would go about this.

For those who are wondering, there are really only 2 lines I'm primarily in question: The big black one (mind the pun ) that runs from the firewall to the compressor, and from the compressor to the condenser (? part in front of the rad). There is another hardline that runs underneath these, but its not as visible. I could just paint it white as-well for camouflage.


I'm going to try to upload a picture so it maybe easier for me to explain or have the explaining done.

Edit: I know there is no tuck or shave, don't kill me, I'm planning and planning so I can execute smoothly

Not going nearly as crazy as any of you guys, but I figured I'd make an effort to clean things up a bit during my build. Any tips/tricks that might not be too hard to execute at this point?

looking good so far. Grinding down some of those dimples and holes on the fronts of the strut towers would go a long way to cleaning up the look at the end

All these clean and detailed bays.
Had a question.
How come there aren't many tubbed wheel wells?
I plan on doing mine eventually, since my front wheels rub full lock.
Any tips or DIYs?

Following removal of cruise control and after a discussion with Richy, exploring ways to clean up the throttle cable... tried gently rerouting it... half-way successful. It works but too much stress is causing throttle issues.

Damn drive by cable... yargh!

Was lurking in Honda forums. I noticed many people do the electric mr2 steering pump.
Is it possible to use this and relocate to the front bumper and still keep power steering?

file sharing is off so I can't get a direct link but I'm going to be doing a little tuck job myself. I didn't go all out on the shaving though....kinda wishing I would have now. Anywhere here is a few pictures in this link.
