Really? GSR Blades are probably my favorite Honda wheel. If I ever decide to put wheels I'm my car, I'll take a set of these.

Which I think was Falkens take on the GSR Blades.

I'm in the middle of moving 10 hrs away to Alberta so things had to go, both hondas were stripped for good parts then sold. The next day I bought a '95 LS sedan 5 speed (last shell was a '96 auto :/ ) desert mist color, tan interior to match, original local owner, reasonable mileage, clean in & out, no rust, only thing that doesn't work is the ABS, paid $2000. I'll be driving this car to the new house instead of transporting both cars. Unfortunately I lost the before pictures but it was stock down to the hubcaps and factory tape player

Before I took the cars apart

The same guy bought both my old cars and we ended up working out a deal, I took off a couple hundred bucks and I got a J'sRacing intake and a Type R cluster. I test fit the intake on the LS but it fit poorly so I put the airbox back in and Ill try to make money off the intake

Not shown in picture but I took apart the LS cluster and Type R unit to made the cruise control light work

Everything was good then the distributor bearing seized and started squealing :( well say hello to senior GSR! I used all factory clips, cable holders, and bolts to try and retain a factory look, I even found my old factory GSR intake tube. The valve cover and strut bar will be changed to a different color

Then naturally the suspension had to go in

And why not a stereo

I love that color. I don't think I've ever seen one that color. And I always love a nice XJ. STILL looking for an MJ.

What is a good brand for valve guides? eBay seems to only sell Supertech or Ferrea

Picked up a 4.4 FD ITR LSD for my blown GSR trans, winter tranny build! Speaking of winter we had our first snowfall two days ago

Snow? We're dying for water in CA. In my county, (because of the drought), you can be fined for hosing off concrete. Worse is being fined because water runs off your grass and onto the sidewalk. I water 3 days a week and my grass looks like crap. As if everyone has the same grade off their property. But the weeds are flourishing FML

Whatever happened to the Yellow Wheels from the old CRX?

I picked up a 4x4 myself - 2004 ZR2 Blazer. Building that now.

Your new project looks nice Brad.

I'm with Matt - you can paint it yourself.
