Looks like a solid car, complete and running! :D
I am rebuilding a n600, in Portugal, but my car was really bad, when compared to yours.
Has for knowledge, I have the complete parts catalog and shop manual, If you want I will send it to you!
I also have a very good parts supplier here, and he is a specialist mecanic in these cars.
Be careful wile running without an air filter...

With the air cleaner unit on it looks a lot better.
Has for the dash, what is the problem with yours?
I have an extra complete dash, with all the instruments and so on,the big problem is that the parts car I took it from had been vandalized, and the dash is broken in half, I am just keeping it for the instruments and other small bits.
The dash on my car is ok, I just had the top "padded" bit upholstered,and now it looks good

For most things, I do not consider his prices to be too hi, but some things are very rare and therefore are expensive, and the dash was surely an expensive replacement part, even back in the day...
In my dash the upholster guy used a flexible vinyl and made the hole thing without any seams, so it looks close to what it was when original

Update:
Soo after test driving the car, my breaks keep locking up. So I took out the master cylinder, took it to a buddy and took it apart cleaned it up and the release " presure hole" was clogged.. Cleaned it and now I have breaks.
Soo JCC was coming up and I decided to enter my car. it was time to make sure my car can make it to long beach.

Came across these tires on eBay so I picked them up.
Image

I also need to change the front passenger shock "made it drive 10 times better"
Then after some lil bolts here and there and going 70mph on the freeway, I made it to the Queen Mary!!

Nice work inside, looks like it had not much rust or at least not any hole, did you use a rust converter or just sanding?
Greetings and nice 600

Looks great. Were those first tires some sort of racing tire or what? They look fancy.

I love the JCCS photo- it's a rainbow of Hondas! :tu:
