    We made it!

    Still dailying this car, it is still running like a champ, and on the way in to work today flipped over 234,567.8 miles!


    Cannot forget the point 8!



    Original B18A1 engine & trans; what a journey this two-owner sedan has lived. I was kind of geeking out a little bit, so I found a nearby parking lot and took a few pics to commemorate.





    Thankful and fortunate to have such a clean DB1, and if she blows up tomorrow, no regrets.

        Well, once again I was the lone representative of the 2nd gen Integra at my local Cars & Coffee. It was a very solid turn-out, but I would love to see a few DA's and DB's once in awhile!

        Posting a few pics of the meet...

              The wheels on that CRX could be the ugliest wheels I've ever seen on a car. They look like the backside of an alternator, or the ice formations we get on wheels, here in the Rocky Mountains.

              On a better note. Sad you're the only Gen2 to show. At least you're doing it with a super-nice representation. I love the love and care you've given the car, without going crazy. It's pretty much a perfect daily driver. Great job.!!!

                  Thanks! Yeah, those wheels are odd (Mugen CF-48's), but very sought after by some in the 1990's Honda scene, presumably because JDM. Also, I believe the CF-48's actually came with a screw-in faceplate to make them look cleaner and less mechanical. Looks like an experiment in creating a "heat sink" effect to cool down the rotors? Maybe some old-schoolers on here can shed some light?

                  I appreciate the comments on my daily, and I'm staying inspired by the OG's and the West Coast/East Coast/Canadian/International people on here who won't let the g2 chassis die!

                    Just stopping by for a quick fillup of 93 octane, 27 yearly Christmas shopping blitzes and counting.

                      Glad to see a fellow DB1. I bought my good condition DB1 a few months back for only $600 then I put a set of brand new VIP Modular 15" wheels on it.

                        Well, this morning would have been the morning my DB1 was totaled, except for a quick reflex brake and some divine intervention. Just had a mid-size SUV going about 50mph run the intersection as I was making a left hand turn, and they came within a foot of my driver's side one piece headlight. Scary as ****. Every day from here on is a gift in this car, because I *should* be waiting for ambulance and tow truck right now.

                          Glad to hear that you avoided a major accident today!

                                Inspection time again in the good old state of North Carolina. I actually forgot to renew almost 2 months ago, but that’s a whole other story…
                                Anyway, it was overdue as hell, so I brought my Integra in last week and it ended up failing for exhaust. The guy at my shop was cool, and took me out to the bay to look at my axle-back while it was up on the lift. Rusted through in *many* places.
                                After consulting threads here, and being in a time crunch, I decided to go with a Walker cheapo OEM replacement axle-back. I hear these things rust out pretty easy, so I did a solid coat of high-heat exhaust paint before installation to hopefully let it last a few years. While the eBay chrome setups were slightly tempting, I don’t have the time or money right now to experimentally rice out this daily, so boring OEM replacement was the call. This car was purchased and driven in Kentucky for many winters, so I am surprised the original OEM muffler was even still intact.


                                Anyway, garage time. All was going well until I inevitably sheared off one of the exhaust flange bolts. Several hours, a propane torch, and half a can of PB blaster later I was able to drill out the chunk that was seized into the threads. What a hassle!






                                All good now, and I passed my reinspection this morning easily. Good times laying on my concrete, turning wrenches. Getting too old for this, lol.
