Not trying to alter it too much. Just playing with the few different combos. I'm not sure I'm feeling the amber corners

So one of my fog bulbs had blown and there was also a crack in one of the lenses.
I thought, while I changed the bulb I'll swap the lenses out for some yellow ones. Quick easy, 10min job. How wrong was I :lol:
Two days of drilling out rounded off and seized screws and bolts.

Image

Then eventually when I split the 1st fog open, it disintegrated into a pile of white salting looking dust.

Fortunately I had some 4th gen prelude fogs lying around. which looked pretty similar...
The lenses were the same shape and the holes lined up with the accord brackets that mount the fogs to the bumper. But the lude ones had fins on hte back that foulded on top of the brackets.
So I got the grinder out and cut them off

Installed

Then I swapped my fender lights out for some clear ones
Image

After that I decided to fit my clear indicators and also swapped my clear corners back in

As some of you know if you've got me on social media etc. Last August the wagon developed a knocking from the bottom end and has been sat away since.
Well I pulled her out of hibernation last week and gave her a clean ready for the heart surgery.

And the donor car for the new heart

So an update on the progress of the wagon.
I drove it to the unit and got it tucked away.
finally got to use my genuine honda cover

Image

At the unit we tried to diagnose the knocking issue but it was a bit baffling as it did it sometimes then didn't. Did and oil change to see if there was any metal on the magnetic sump plug and a few other things.
In the end I decided to go all or nothing and drive it nearly 2hrs to Mimms Honda day.
So to get it looking somewhat respectable I rattlecan'd my damaged front lip to make it less noticable.

Image
Image

Gave the Volks a good cleanup and refitted those.
Parked up and ready to go.
Image

So.... well... it didn't quite make it there.
On the way the car started to struggle and missfire going up inclines, until we going about 10mins away from the show and the car gave up. Pulling away from a junction, it was spluttering and missing like crazy and just would'nt go any further. So I ended up getting towed the rest of the way :roll: :lol:

We got into the show and I fired her up again and straight away a friend said cut it... It sounds like the beslt slipped some teeth on the cams.
So we removed the rocker cover to assess. Straight away we saw the issue. The bolt that holds the front cam on had worked loose and the keyway had started to work its way out.
So we tightend the bolt back up and checked to see if the timing was still correct and it was. Put everything back together and fired her up.... she purred like a kitten 8-) .

Image

Drove her all the way back with zero issues.

So a few pics from Mimms
