Thanks man its coming... slowly... but surely. I have to do the drivers door, install tach, seatbelts, some floor mats and give it one hell of a detail then I will use my good camera and take some better pictures. Then its off to my shop to do the lim and check out all the brakes and suspension.

You did get the heat shields right? Is it just me or is the offset a bit much on those wheels?

The wheels were off a 04 Acura tl. I have a 02 Honda odyssey so they should fit perfectly, I did not take the shields I'm going to wrap them with exhaust wrap. I have my current ones wrapped you can practically touch them. I'm gonna sand blast them (with my knuckles) paint them, wrap them and then paint them again. A super sexy color........Black lol

Thanks man! I'm going to do the front valve cover the same way, pretty much changing the whole color scheme under the hood. Strut braces are going pearl black and I was going to run 12" led strips (white) under all the strut braces wired to a switch for engine lighting. But I'm worried the heat will destroy them.

Hey, it's nice to see good hard work! Not a fan of glow lights under anything, but it should last a few years. At least you will be able to see those rear plugs!

Could just buy one of those LED drop lights. Seems dang hard to find a good quality one though. One day I plan to get one, tired of roasting my arm(lol). Flashlights? Got a few, just not enough hands(or a place to put one). Dreaming of a mirror on a flexible mount.

Keeps a charge for over 4 months and if needed, simply recharge it with a 12v supply. Had mine for 3+ years
