I like the look and like SS brake lines. More detail please. Who is your source for the SS lines. Are they custom?

While he modified some existing lines, another option that I have used on my '79 civic is custom ordering some from Apex Brakes. You can choose the fittings and length and even bracket options, and the lines are much better quality than I expected!

I had some time to work on the N. I started the body work. I welded the body molding holes, the antanna hole and where the stock driver mirror holes are. Also my where my hood latch Gos there was a lot of damage and didn't let my grill line up. I bang all the damages out and it lined up nicely. Here's some pics.

I just closed the front fender side marker holes on my 1970. I makes for a very clean look. I will do the rear marker holes next. My year doesn't have the chrome strip. The side markers seem to be only on the USDM cars.

both mine are 1970 AN600 and neither have chrome strip. Must be the 71 that had them. I am going to put tiny led side markers on the front and either use the tail light as a side marker or get the European tail lights that were all in one. The European cars did not have the side markers at all and I think that looks better.
A few weeks ago I saw a crazy header down at Ming's. It snaked out the passengers side and was held together with the racing springs, no flanges. I am working on a header that has equal length primaries and a collector. I plan to use the racing springs too. The whole changing of the header came about because of your set up, which I really like.

A few questions. Back a few pages you show your rebuilt axles. Where did you get the boots?? I used early civic boots for my steering and ball joints but haven't been able to find an axle boot.
Also where is your battery located?

I got (3) near me. Big O Tires (Pasadena, Glendora, West Covina) I will check them out. I saw a BMW at Pick a Part last week. They have the battery in the trunk. Maybe I will get a long bat cable for the price of a standard bat cable. Monrovia Pick a Part has had (2) N600's there in the last couple of months. There is one there now with some parts left. struts, master, booster, rack, hood, trunk lid, pass. door.

Your car is looking great, just started getting back into my project. We get a lot of rust up here, with any luck I can have the floor pans buttoned up and ready for meda blasting and a few coats of epoxy primer.
