Default Slowly coming together... (more pics)

Well, I finally found some spare time after a couple tumultuous weeks to spend on the bonneville.





The rain didn't hold me back from working. I finished it, but I have not taken a picture yet cause of other obligations.

Just have the cladding to re-install (once I get clips), the carpet and headliner, and the exhaust bezel and she'll be good as new.

After that, it'll probably be going up for sale. It'* time to start thinking about a house (someone posted about this recently. Thanks) and since I have the acura, i don't really need the second car that I don't really drive.

But for now, you can admire the work. No price set. Need to see what others are going for.

Amd if I recall, I had a slowly dying clutch and master Cyl, and motor mounts going bad....


But the acura is not getting sold. Currently is the one that is together and functioning, and has the most new parts (bonneville has more new-to-it parts though)

That, and driving 5 speed is too much fun at the moment and the 34mpg of the integra is much better than the 22-24 of the bonneville.

Was running late today so I couldn't get a picture of the car.

I also need to find something to degrease the engine bay...

That'* funny. The crosslaces will be coming off soon. It you look in the first pictures, you can kinda see what will be going on in their place...

And yes, i was planning on simple green. Need to search though to see what to avoid getting it on...
