Had a spare 15 minutes today to continue the resto. Got stuck with some crappy manifold to exhaust stud/nuts so some gentle heat and a set of mole grips helped out. ;) Really enjoying this project although this is turning out to be the longest headgasket change ever :lol:

Image

The crappy nuts. :(

Image

Manifold shot.

Image

Finally got the head off. I would apreciate any comments :)

Taken as soon as the head came off.

Image

Some close ups

Image

After removing the bulk of the gasket and soaking the remainder.

Whilst i await news on the cylinder head i thought i would get on with a few other jobs, namely figuring out why the drivers door window winder doesn't work. Here's why :shock: a peice of wood holds the glass up and the window mount is broken from the winder mechanism.

Image

A rummage around the bottom of the inside of the door found the two plastic sliders that connect the mechanism to the window. Unfortunately there broken in two but some superglue and a good service to all the mechanism should sort it.

Image

Whilst rummaging around the inside of the door i also found the rear part of the weather strip for the drivers window. You can see it missing here.

Image

As a tempory repair i refitted it using a dap of clear silicone sealant to hold it in place. Its stopped the window rattling about for now but eventually i will replace the whole weather strip.

Image

I also noted that a section is missing to the front of the window.

JC Whitney sells replacement weatherstripping for the window run channel.
On their web page click on Window Weatherstripping then INFO under All-rubber window channels.
I used style 20 on my 600 coupe, it worked great. You can do both doors for $30.

Image

On top of the inner wing there's some rust but its only surface.

Image

Been doing a lot of searching and bagged some brilliant parts today. All brand new, boxed, OEM and reasonably priced :D

NSF wing
Chrome rear bumper
Chrome front bumper
Rear seat belts and fitting kit
Complete exaust system
Rear Lights



Image

Image

Took the NSF wing off today. Cant believe the the crap collected in there over the years. Nearly 2 in thick. Now wonder old cars rotted. Thankfully the inner wing/upper chassic rail is solid just like the other side.

Image

Image

Once clean up it looks nice and solid.

Image

Old wings seen better days but is still repairable with some welding.

Image

Did a test fit. Fits great although thats pics not bolted up properly.

Had a real good look and a poke at some innocent enough looking surface rust today to see how bad it was.

Behind the offside wing at the base of the pillar looks ominous.
Image
Image

Some more on the offside wing that i didnt spot before

Image

The front of the offside rear arch

Image

The nearside rear arch looks worse than i thought. The metals blistering away here.

Image

Image
Image

The rear section of the nearside arch

Image


Nearside sill, surface rust bust seems solid enough :?

Image

Ive sourced some rear arch repair panels from Finland of all places :lol:

Image

Let the welding begin :lol:

Got the head back as well. Stripped, welded, skimmed and New Honda valve stem seals fitted. Total cost £120.00

Before......

Image

After........

Thank god for Finland! :)

That sucks about the rust, but it looks like it's coming along nicely.
