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.

small updates

I've booked the car in for mapping in May with AP and also booked a trackday for mid may (hopefully it goes ahead).

Fitted new spark plugs and leads
Fitted tegiwa brake stopper
Also had a spare cam cover so decided to clean it down and redo the black wrinkle effect. Turned out much better than the cam cover I had in car. Some pictures attached.
few more small jobs to do but car is nearly complete in terms of modifying and just want to enjoy it now.

Good work, car looks great! Some good preventative maintenance there too, how did you find the rack after adjustment?

Thanks man, I've only taken it for a short spin but can notice steering is a lot stiffer/tighter immediately. Its as if the power steering is somewhat subdued. I think there's more feel now as well so its definitely worth doing imo. Plus side is its literally a 5min job.

Few more jobs done today,
- Fitted 2x new torque mounts. I had tegiwa mounts but decided to change to hardrace.
- wiring finished on water temp, oil temp and oil pressure gauge. They have some nice features such as peak recall and warning light/alarm at desired level. Can also change colour of backing light. currently have white backing light at daytime and amber colour with parking lights on.
- fitted a 270mm convex broadway mirror. At the moment visibly is poor with the spoon mirrors vs oem. I might need to change back before the upcoming trackday.
-morosso baffled sump fitted
- blox fuel pressure gauge fitted

Small update
Took the car to AP to get it remapped. He spent a nice bit of time on it and fixed some other small issues aswell so overall very happy . It made 182hp and torque is approx 110FtLb

Only got to take it for a short spin when I got it home but much smoother power delivery and torque also has improved. Really looking forward to getting to drive this more often.
Its booked in for alignment on Saturday so nearly there.
