So long story short, when replacing the crankshaft seal the car got a full revamp. I will just upload some pictures of where its at now.
The next job will be to do ignition timing, and full coolant / oil flush. I also need to get the suspension set up and book the car into a bodyshop to fit spoon replica front lip. The plan after that is just to drive it, I had a track day planned in July but doubt that will go ahead.

Unfortunately the quality of photos has deteriorated while uploading.

Very nice EG which are few and far between these days!

Presume you'd be taking her to Mondello?

Thanks, ya I've booked the track day but can't make up my mind whether to track it or just park it up for the day and leave my brother take his s2000 on track instead. Are you going yourself?

Also tightened the steering rack using this tool from honda. I haven't driven the car yet but will be interesting to see if it makes any difference.
I also had some oil seeping from cooler o ring located behind oil filter so replaced it with a new seal.

I also ordered up a new PCV valve and o ring for the distributor at the same time.

also fitted a new cam cap o ring and dowel.

new gauges installed, just waiting on my moroso sump and t piece to connect sensors and finish wiring.

This looks great

Can I ask where you got the lift from? Have been looking at some of them online
