    HF Meet - Hershey, PA

    Well, I'll be there too. I am also inviting Andy (from the Myrtle Beach meet).

    TS John's Build Thread

    Oh, bummer. The only reason I'm looking is cuz I want everything in my interior to be black or grey (instead of the blue and red seats that come in Si's) so I can't trade for them. Well, I guess I'll keep looking.

    TS John's Build Thread

    Thanks for the comments, people. Rick, I may hold you to that if you ever actually see my car... Ryan, those wheels are pretty new (don't have many pictures with them). I'll post up more once my new tires get here and I get a chance to repaint them and clean all the brake dust off them. Colter, if I buy new seats, you can surely buy mine from me. Or if you can find me good GSR seats and broker a trade I would be open to that. Sarah, I did lie on my stomach for that picture... Kinda weird that you noticed that but okay. Also, what kind of teg seats are we talking here? The black leather GSR seats? Any pictures? Send me a PM if you are serious about trading. Thanks.

    TS John's Build Thread

    Well, today I had the yen to make a build thread even though I have been AWOL for a while... So here it is! First we do the fun part: pictures. I was gonna wash it all up today and do a photoshoot but then it started storming, so that's a no go. I'll update later with more pics once the car is clean and has a few loose ends tied up (see below). These are the most recent pics I have, but I should warn you they're cellular telephone style, so not the best. Enjoy them anyway. Now the less fun, braggy part. Here's my stuff that I've done. Woo hoo. What I've done so far: -- CAI w/AEM Filter & Bypass Valve -- Megan Racing 4-2-1 Stainless Header -- Skunk2 Cat-Back Exhaust -- Skunk2 Coilovers -- Skunk2 Rear Lower Arm Bar -- Front & Rear Upper Strut Bars -- B&M Short Shifter -- SoCal Speed Shop Shifter Ball -- Black LS Meshies -- Amber Corners -- Blackout Tails Awaiting arrival/install: -- New front weatherstripping to stop all the leakage. -- New Falken Ziex tires. -- Repainting the wheels to be a darker, shinier, ceramic black. Plans for the future: -- PWJDM carbon fiber intake -- New seats (either GSR seats or recovering mine in black leather) -- Momo steering wheel and pedals (nothing extreme, just a little classier) -- 35% tint (maximum legal tint in MD) -- Front lip and repaint, keeping the car black

    New Pictures of the Sol

    I actually got them like that. They were gonna get painted gunmetal, and they still might some day, but I really liked them like that so I just threw them on there.

    New Pictures of the Sol

    Yeah, I'm glad you know what I'm going for. I'd leave the reflectors nice and white cuz the white squares for my backup lights stand out pretty nicely too. So they'd match. Now I wish I had money to start buying this stuff...

    Inlet Meet.

    I think me and Lina are down for this. Should be cool and its not too far away. We might only do a day or two but we'll most probably be there. Dunno which car we'd take.

    New Pictures of the Sol

    Yeah, but you also told me not to get the meshies and now they have won you over, so I dunno if I can really trust you... http://www.hondaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=33201

    what would happen?

    Prolly a good idea to just get a whole swap rather than doing some frankenstein stuff... But, here's a few quick links: http://hondaswap.com/hybrid-eg-ek-dc/d15b6...16z6-head-3358/ http://www.d-series.org/forums/engine-buil...6-motor-hf.html

    New Pictures of the Sol

    Yeah, I like those. But right now everything on the car is black or white... Many plans. You will see as they happen...

    what would happen?

    I don't think there is such a thing as a B6 head so I will say you have the D15B7. An Si head? What Si? Crx Si from back in the day? That was what... a D16A1? Or was that a ZC? The first one wouldn't work at all since that's DOHC and the second one would be okay I guess but not the best you could do. I hear of people doing that from time to time, though. The best you could do would be get the Si del Sol head (Z6). This also came in EX civics and some other models you can research too. I believe this is called a mini-me swap for some reason, but I may be wrong about that. Pretty standard stuff -- I'm sure there's lots on hondaswap. The tranny from the D16Z6 is nice, but if you want an even closer geared one get the D16A1 tranny like you would find in the first gen teg. That's a cable tranny though which would require a conversion. More details and people could prolly help you more.

    parting out a 1993 del sol

    Bump for my question.

    Front end trade.

    Just remove your aux. lights and bondo over the holes. It'll only look very slightly different, as the 97 bumper is a bit more angular. But that'll save you a trade and 99.9% of people won't be able to tell the difference.
