And now a maintenance post.




Then in May '18 or so my window regulator cable snapped
Found a thread on here and S2Ki detailing how to rebuild them using bicycle brake cables but no photos existed and only videos I could find involved swapping in entire replacement units



Car sat for a month before I wound up buying a replacement regulator from a wrecked S a buddy bought. Then another month or so later I finally got around to vice gripping the cables/motor out of that unit to install into mine since my bottom mount is set up for my door. Plus I like keeping my car as original as I can...and still wound up having to realign it anyway because I didn't mark the old spots on everything you have to shift around. Infinitely movable mounting points suck ass, probably spent an hour or two getting it perfect.


Probably not a bad time to install the new interior & exterior weatherstrips I got a year or two ago + regrease the tracks.


And since I went down to Miami a couple days after finishing, figured I'd finally get that 10 or 11 year old tint replaced on the driver window since it started getting a water trail in it and abused from the ripping weatherstrips






So for a year or two, maybe more, who knows, it's had a vibration in the car.
One place told me my rear wheels were bent, another shop said my wheels were fine
The car is lowered about 1.5-2 inches with no axle spacers and a common problem is the CV joints start to pit. A few months ago I swapped once CVJ from my RHD axle back to my original CVJ, changed what speed I get the shake at but obviously still there.

So a couple weeks ago since the car was already up on stands for new tires, I decided to pull the joints, clean them out, swap & mark. No more shake, finally.







Eventually I plan to get a couple replacement axles from Honda just for down the road, let alone a bunch of other parts I want to stock up on.





Also I got around to replacing those wretched worn out A/C knobs. FL sun & humidity is brutal on that thin plastic
