Today was a success!
Got the Intercooler mounted and 80% plumbed in.
I’ve very happy with how it’s turned out, the cooler sits nicely, and it’s nice and high.
Now the cooler is in place I can finalise the design for the bumper and intake, I’ve got it all worked out in my head and marked out on the bumper, it’ll be a fair bit of work but it should be worth it. Will start on the bumper next week! So stay tuned!
And finally, you all know that @jesse888 tuned my car, and I say time and time again about how much of an amazing job he’s done.
Well I thought it was time to start spreading the word! So I had some stickers made up to advertise him.
He’s a great tuner and it shows as he’s starting getting a few customers now!
Give this guy a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
Viewers with a sensitivity to altering JDM oem Honda parts, look away now. Well tbh just don’t look at my build thread at all!
To get the bumper how I want it, first step was too permanently attach the bottom lip to the bumper. I did this by using a little bit of fibreglass isopon and screws.
Then I cut out some plastic out of an old brake cleaner container to fill in some big gaps that I want to fill.
Then using a hot glue gun, I glued the panels into place.
Made the hole bigger!
Then added winglets in to guide the air inwards.
And first test fitted tonight.
I need to do something with the lower lip in front of the cooler, as it’s covering it, which is wasted cooling!
Obviously this is no where near done yet, but you get the idea.
Need to mark up where the V stack will sit and cut a hole for it.
Ignore the difference in plastic colour for now, it’ll all be white.
I made the hole a bit bigger by lowering the bottom lip in the middle a bit, which worked out well.
I then used a heavy grit DA to sand away the glue and too rough up the plastic ready for the p40 fibreglass mash to smooth edges, fill cracks....lol
And to make the bumper one piece, which is the plan.
