    ^ Ya, pee stain for the win!
    The path of Honda is beset on all sides by the iniquities of Mazda and the tyranny of Nissan. Blessed is the Honda owner who in the name of handling and performance shepherds his Honda through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his Honda's keeper and the finder of lost kilowatts. And I will strike down upon thee with great acceleration and furious VTEC those who attempt to overtake and destroy my Hondas. And you will know my name is PRELUDE when I lay my VTEC upon thee.

    So... the car was rolled out of the shed tonight!
    Yes, I said rolled...

    Tomorrow is the big day to get some sexy primer/paint laid down on the totally smooth enginebay.

    So the car didnt get painted, but it did get all masked up. Painter guy was "under the weather" from some last night boozing. Here's some pics of us moving the car to the shed where it'll get painted. And Geoff playing with air tools!

    Newspaper says "wash off rubbing sludge".. Just notes from the guy who's going to paint the car. I still am yet to meet him! He just leaves me little notes in the night like santa leaves presents.

    I'm actually pretty happy with the paint on the rest of the car. There's a few spots that need fixing up, and they'll get done after all this engine work. One sideskirt has a crack in it, the front lip has a bit of a crack too. And the rear bar has a little scrape from a minor incident on a cruise about a year ago...

    A crack from a cruise about a year ago?
    That was about when the car was running last wasn't it?
    Need a hand doing any glass repairs dude? Just offering my help!
    I'm working in an office right next door to the mould shop I used to work in at the moment. So I can talk to the boys about getting resin and glass too. Chuck some woven rovings in there. Make it nice and strong.
