Had this old Honda for over a year now, bought it from Avengertiger here on OS and had plans to rebuild the motor (from worn out piston rings) in this old girl as my first automotive project:
The project started off brilliantly, within a couple weeks I'd given it a hell of a clean and polish, rebuilt most of the rear breaks and had her running around as my weekend cruiser
Though as all my plans go, I procrastinated waiting on things to fall into place as the rings got more and more worn, it wasn't until she was vaping up clouds that I was sure the dodgiest of WOF inspectors wouldn't pass did I think of doing something. It was a few weeks ago that I had the opportunity to buy a 5-spd running donor from Waimate. So with a couple hundy in hand I took the drive to pick up a parts car with never seeing the car or knowing much about it at all. Turned out It had been used a daily by a lovely old lady on some long gravel roads for the past decade; having started to rust intensely and failed a previous WOF on a tie-rod end she thought it was time to move it on. One hell of a fun road-trip later I had two old Honda's in the driveway and many pissed off flatmates.
This project post starts here; with a week before I'm due to move flat and no space to store the parts car its time to rip her apart! It'll donate Engine, Accessories, a Manual swap (ie most of it's soul) to my beloved Yellow Accord. With minimal experience working on cars I'm sure this'll be an adventure, though I'm itching to get started this New Year 2018!
