When installing the new radiator and under panel last week, i realized that some of the bolts, screws and other hardware was either missing, badly corroded, damaged or wrong. This happens with most of the cars when many people do a lot of things with them over the years. No Problem, but i thought it would be a good thing to rectify things. So i got my original japanese parts manuals out, which a bought a while ago:
I contacted my Honda dealer and the next they they were able to pickup. Unfortunately Honda has discontinued some of the items and replaced them with others. While they do fit and work, the design is sometimes slightly different.
When opening the door, i realized that some rubbers have become a bit “sticky”, so i thought it was about time to bring out the old shabby rubber treatment flask and give all seals a wipe before putting the car asleep.
And at the end i put the car back in her original parking lot and threw the dust cover on it. In spring i’ll bring the car for a front-end respray and I’m also thinking of heaving the worn seats reupholstered with original fabric. Nevertheless, I’m happy i’ve done all the work and i’m ready for next season.
