    I don't have the restraint lol

    Summit pulled through, rotors were on back order until May 12th. Decided to keep the ones that came with the kit and the BP10 pads until I do my autox on May 14th. Want to see how this setup does before my track day on May 27th.

    looking good man been a while since I read this. Gave me a lot of motivation. I'm happy to see you still have this car. I actually purchased the hunter green 96 lx we spoke about like a year and a half ago. I really like that hood it sets off that track look. Almost reminds me of the kanjo cars lol.

    Brakes still need a good bleed, I didn't feel like getting a pump or asking for help. Bought some Russell speed bleeders. Highly recommend, so easy to use and work flawlessly.

    This is absolutely gross, I bleed them all through until fluid was clear.

    Trying Liqui-Moly 5w40 for the first time, and after doing a lot of research on oil filters I went with K&N. K&N uses cellulose that those a nice job keeping oil clean and helps high viscosity oil flow easily.

    Good first event, suspension feels great. Tires hooked even though it was raining. Brakes felt great, I need to ease up on them.

    I was worried about rubbing due to the height prier to going to the even but after I emptied the trunk it raised just enough.

    I'm going to be doing the valve seals and figuring out why I have a dead spot right now when braking.

    This is Ayer, MA. People call it Deven's but officially called Moore's all field.

    Final piece to the ITR, valve seals (intake/exhaust). Ordered a new valve spring tool.

    Here's the brake line fix/patch, flared and unioned with fittings. Here's New England for you.

    Made my own Bench bleed setup with Home Depot stuff for my master cylinder, 265k miles was enough on the stock one lol

    Makes bleeding easy, learned something new too. Normally I started with farthest and ended with the closest caliper when bleeding. Honda is RRear, LFront, LRear and RFront

    Wheel Bearing started making noise.

    Naw, I avoided them. Used flare union fittings, safer IMO.

    Jelly jar is full. I'm not sure I'll make any track events this year. Really just need to be ready for the Dragon event in Oct.

    :what: Threads junk, Photobucket is asking for $399 a year because I'm 3rd party hosting. I'd like to add I'm putting a long pause on any motorsports due to adulting. PEACE

    Yeah, I've got about 7,500 links that are all dead now, between 3 build threads. Photobucket can get bent.
