Clutch replacement primarily.

As much as id love to, no.

For once I am not really modding a car aside from safety and consumables with minor improvement mods.

Things still to do: everything.

Motivation is low when I can't drive the car.  I just want it to be grip season soon.

Like I said, motivation is low.  Especially because of not being able to drive it and not wanting to spend money on tires yet.

It's a Honda, it doesn't make enough torque to need two engine mount bolts anyway  :P

Anyway next week/weekend i'll get back at it again.  I'm hoping I Can get away with a new throwout bearing and clutch disc only and forgo the pressure plate and flywheel but I won't know how it looks until we finally yank the engine (most of the way there).  Still need to pull the axles and do the CV swap to help that vibration under load, change all the fluids, find a new sound-system, patch the small hole in the roof, put the other exhaust system on, and finally think about working on the paint.

Yep Fast Wheels Orbit in matte black, 16x7 +40.  Will stick some 225/50/16s on there, undecided on tires as of now.

I am trying to keep costs as low as possible with the economy right now.

Has he pulled the engine?
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
