    Thanks :) All my powder coating is done at Envirotech in Winkler.

    I recently had some wheel faces powder coated for Mike Tesarski...


    and got these in the deal. They're Eclipse/Blitz wheels, unsure of model. He picked them up while in Japan last year


    I got more Downstar parts for the build, obviously need spike lugs to go with the spike hardware in the engine bay


    ICB Care package. Feels Oil cap, Rare clear EG side markers (Second set), and coin pocket


    And finally, traded my Mugen RNR's and Kevlar hatch for this, K24A2


    So small update, not much going on this year yet. This will be my first K-swap, so I've been reading lots, and going to start collecting parts for it soon.

    I really appreciate all the kind words, helps encourage me to keep going

          Subbed. Curious as to why k24 instead of k20.

            also still learning, hybrid racing has a nice pdf write up. I can send it your way on facebook. I've read most of it so far, and seems pretty straight forward. The swap has been around for almost a decade, so there is lots of info out there already, and I see more and more used stuff on the market for it

            more displacement, and it was the only one that I was able to trade wheels for :P

            Thanks Shawn, hoping to have it done by 2016

              I knew you were gonna do a K swap one day haha. I was researching k swaps a while back and found a pretty good parts list that I saved for future reference. I can forward it to you if you like.

                I absolutely LOVE the powdercoated parts. I need to get some of that done.

                  Worked a little on the gas tank


                  Its got about a bazillion dents. Looks like a used WWE garbage can


                  You guys may have noticed my rad cradle was damaged at the bottom, so I removed it today


                  First time removing a rad cradle, pretty straight forward


                  First time the car has had a bumper on it, started sanding it down


                  Had an OEM replacement fender for the left side, didn't fit the same as the genuine Honda one, so I won't be using it. Started to sand the right fender

                      Cut up a friends parts car, and got an OEM fender from him for $50




                      Started removing the frame rails from the rad support last night. Got one whole side done. Will post more once progress is made

                              Daily driver... was the initial plan. The boosted hatch is too easy to get into trouble, I've got a feeling this will be hard to resist to hit the throttle after its done

                                Stripping the rocker guard from the interior has been a huge pain in the butt, but I've slowly been making progress using paint stripper and a wire wheel






                                I know there's still more to strip, but I got anxious, and sprayed some primer






                                Also cleaning up my Ohlins, gonna try and track down new dust seals, and powder coat the springs, polish up the struts




                                Finally found some hex caps for my BBS wheels!! Now if I could only find two more lips, I'd be set


                                Taking these apart for powder coating :)

                                    Welded up a few last holes before she goes to get powder coated




                                    Its not legit, but it is polyurethane


                                    Few more OEM goodies to finish off my brakes and steering rack


                                    Couple of valve covers powder coated for the project car, B-series will go in once the car is done, K-series when I have acquired everything I need


                                    Dropped her off yesterday to be sandblasted and powder coated

                                      Looking good man! Is the whole car being powdercoated?

                                        Never seen anyone powder coat the whole car before.
                                        That would be insane.

                                              Not the exterior panels. The under carriage, wheel wells, engine bay and inside of the car will be powder coated. Cheaper than painting the inside, and more durable
