I've: installed some minor security stuff
-gotten all the lights working
-replaced all the old ratty fuses with brand new ones
-cleaned the hell outta the interior
-replaced the crappy cardboard spare tire cover with a peice of thin plywood that I cut to shape using the stock one as a template. I then sprayed it with truck bedliner and it looks great!
-replaced the tailight gaskets and siliconed the crap outta them to stop the hatch from filling up with water! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

After replacing the gaskets, though, I still have a very small leak coming through, so I need to crack out the silicone again and pack the cracks! Plus today in the rain I found a small leak on the passenger side rear window. I gotta try to patch that also.

I am beginning to hate rain, lol. Confused

Overall, however, I am very happy with my first Honda. I love driving it, even if it is only running on 3 cylinders. Soon that SOHC ZC engine will be here from HMO and i'll finally have some power.

I'm thinking I might "Zex" it up a bit later on down the road just for the hell of it.

Well, I stalled at a light (didn't give it enough gas Embarassed ) and now the Hatch won't start.
I:
-Pulled the plugs, all had fuel on them and smelled like gas (looked clean to, not running lean or rich.)
-Checked the dizzy for spark. I got spark in all four.
-Checked the fuel pump and kill switch. they both work just fine.
-pulled off the valve cover and removed the top timing belt cover to check the timing. it's fine.
-no codes, and my ecu (main relay?) still makes the clicks that it should.
-checked grounds, all that i could get at were fine.
-we tried jumnping it, WOT cranking it, and even tried starer fluid. nothing worked.

o well, i gave up and had it towed to the local import shop. If it's too much $$$ to fix, it's time for that SOHC ZC!!! I'll let you know tomorrow what they said!
