    Your painter recommending friend sounds like a real piece of shit.

    Just guessing...

    Nice to see you back at it though!

    Wife has been asking me about this for awhile now. I've never kept track and I've been putting it off, but I've recently gone through my email, amazon account, memory bank, photos etc. Being generous with currency conversions since I've started, guessing high on things like duties and brokerage fees and adding a fair amount for odds and ends, plus stuff that's currently in the works or waiting for delivery (upholstery and stereo being the big ones)...

    29k and counting. But it's the hours and blood, sweat and tears...fuck me.

    And the miscellaneous Honda and Mini parts, and just junk floating around my garage from this damn thing. It will be a long time before I take on another car project...back to dirtbikes and motorcycles for me.

    Exhaust, alignment and corner balancing still left to be done.

    Your car is like a poster for your life. Barely together, and can catastrophically end at anytime. And when it’s gone, no one will care.

    Ok, we can all agree no one will miss him when he's gone.

    On to more important things...I'd like to have some reference on the car that it's powered by a Honda without making it too obvious. Looking for thoughts or opinions. I was thinking of doing a very discreet Type R sticker in the stock ITR location it a shade darker then the body color. Quick Photoshop, I'd probably go a little smaller and not as dark.

    Yay or nay?

    I think the scream from the cam changeover should let people know it's Honda powered :D
