    update 8/30

    sorry for no updates for a while....been really busy lately.....well...monday night i finally took a trip out to rhode island to get me zc...and boy is she a beaut.....70k on it....mint clutchmasters stage 1 clutch....no leaks....no oil burning...compression perfect and all i need to buy is a dizzy and cam sensor...i called the local j-yard and they wanted 75 for everything including obd0 injectors....the motor is an obd1 zc so it has a cam plug where the cam sensor would go....i also have sumwhat of a prob....since obd1 motors use the front motor mount on the tranny (vibration mount) and my crx uses a regular little motor mount on the block...i now have no front mount...is this gunna be ok? i still have the driver, passenger, and rear mount that will work fine....just wondering if she will be alright....this weekend im going to paint the engine bay and drop the motor in...which i also have to take a 10 min drive to go pick up an si 5spd tranny for 100 bucks and then i should be set to go....enjoy the fresh pics...i even cleaned her up today with some heavy duty degreaser...looks mint!;)

    looks good. i like it. the whole car would look sick in that color blue. keep the updates commin man.

    check out powder coating the valve cover, make it look like a work of art.

    How much stuff did you remove temporarily from the engine bay to paint it? fuse box, fuel filter, etc...

    Oh, and what about the hood? doing that with the car?

    relle u dont have to remove anything.....i took the fuel filter off and wrapped it in tape and i let it hang....same with the harnesses on the side..except u have to pull the harness out of all the lights and the little relays on the side and pull them out so u can wrap em up and let em hang where the engine bay would be....i unbolted the windsheild washer resivoir....all hoses for coolant and vaccum off (even the canister)..took the fuse box out and just masked up the brake booster and the shock mount bolts...thats pretty much it....and yes i am painting under the hood....everything is getting done...i just did this first so i can plop the motor in and driver her around;)
