So it's been a long enough break after the system, I'm going to start working on her again. I really want to work on fixing the front end parts the bumper reinforcement, bumper filler, and the hood and also doing some minor body work. After that I want to start working on the interior and getting a new headliner.

So two minor things I've done which have bugged me for a long time...

1)Replaced the dented and tweaked hood
 

With this one



2) And got the clips outta the junkyard and fixed this annoying little bugger....

Amazing how something so small as a clip can make such a huge difference .

So I've got my next project picked up this console out of a hatch at the junkyard for $15 its missing a couple pieces that I can pick up out of other hatches so no biggie. Ken got curious and looked up the part number and apparently this console is from a Acura Integra Type R and is $400 from the factory. On the forums each piece is going for about $150. So  now I'm hella excited to get this little puppy cleaned up, repainted and in my car!!!

I finally replaced the warped particle board with quarter inch ply, here it is...

Cardboard Template.


The board all cut out.




I coated it in weatherproofing stain so it won't warp when water leaks in the hatch. (I will find that little bugger of a leak one day.)



Here's the final product.

Just got it in today and even though I'm loving it, it's getting a black and red rewrap as soon as possible since the grey is just a little too light.
