Friends pos civic was acting up again, bad idle and cylinder 3 misfire code.
She asked me to do her plugs and wires
Afterwards, idle was a little better, but still cylinder 3 misfire as well as cylinder 4 misfire, not sure whats up there. Made me happy though, I love working on cars, and doing work for other people means you dont have to pay for parts lol

it is lol
Exhaust has a hole in the middle, the auto tranny doesn't shift till redline, I replaced the calipers,rotors,pads,drums,and shoes and the brakes still vibrate when you step on the pedal, valve cover leaks like a mofo, exhaust smokes from either burning oil or coolant, you need two hands to move the shifter, key sticks 9 times out of ten in the ignition, high beams are low beams and vice versa, alternator is crapping out so it takes about 5 minutes for a window to go all the way down and back up

Just character I guess lol

Have kinda been neglecting the car lately so I pulled it in the store to get a good look at everything.
Noticed a small amount of seepage next to the oil filter, not sure if head gasket leak?
Also noticed as you can see in the picture one of the header flange nuts worked its way loose, gotta figure out where to get one of those.


Also got some stuff for the battery relocation
- Battery
- Shrink Wrap
- Wire ring terminals
- Sheet metal and window/door sealer
- Circuit breaker (Ordered/on its way)



And A quick test fit for the battery in the tray

Not installed yet...

On another note:
I made a little box for the disty-block to keep it out of the elements once its installed in the engine bay.
Its rough right now, gonna hit it with some wrinkle black, gotta coat the inside of the cover with something non-conductive, and then figure out where the wires will be coming in from and cut holes for em
