    It wasn't too bad. Biggest issues were dodgey wiring by myself and car alarm installers. After you get everything off, the 4g dash is only held in by 4 bolts... My main concern was accidentally ripping/damaging the doorskin/dashskin etc with sharp objects.

    So this weekend's progress. Cut off some plugs, ran some wires, temporarily installed jdm heater box and fan for testing length of harnesses.

    Lets just say, this JDM climate control thing is no small task.







    I also decided to ditch the crappy alarm system installed in 1992 by a hackjob installer at Ming. My mum decided she'd be really nice and buy me a new alarm system. Not going to mention the brand, but its got remote boot release, turbo timer, automatic window & sunroof closer, microwave proximity sensors and tilt sensor.



    I had the opportunity to snap up a brand new clutch master and slave cyl made by daikin clutches (exedy). This was a killer deal from a dude in the states.



    Thought I'd mock up the brake booster and master cyl for brakes / clutch.





    I also took a trip down to the local clark rubber... really should be named clark (ream you up the ass without a) rubber...

    Their prices are insane. Anyway I bought some of this stuff to do the holes in the bodywork to prevent intercooler piping rubbing. I also bought some foam backed tape to put between the dash and interior components. 15 bucks a meter for the edging. 10bucks a meter for the foam tape.



    Intake pipe hole.



    Hole for hot side charge pipe to run to intercooler.

    Well thats it for another massive weekend working on the car. I've got a headache from reading all the wiring diagrams 20 times for each wire to make sure I had it perfect. I didnt take any photos of my soldering, but if there's any doubters - Ian and Scotty can back me up that I'm doing it right with heatshrink decent soldering work.

    I still have to run 3 more wires for the climate control harness and then I can loom it up and clean/install the heater/aircon/fan boxes once more.

    Enjoy.

    Haha, I remember you asking me "Are you sure you need to pull the dash and evaporator unit out to do the conversion?" bout 2 years ago now. Good job mate!
    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.

    lol yeah, I wasnt aware of just how many sensors there really are...

    I've got 3-4 wires left on the harness to make up. Should be ready to make up the looms soon.

    wouldnt it be easier to use the entire loom from the donor car = plug and play.

    Fail. The climate control harness is wound into the full interior harness. It would've been a nightmare to remove.

    Secondly the donor car was auto. So there'd be more additional wiring to do for the transmission/ecu.

    So definately not as easy as it seems, and not plug and play for sure.

    This is the easier option to make up my own looms.

    Here's a big update from what I've been doing over the xmas break.



    I purchased some fresh new hardware to bolt up the enginebay components. Those are ARP nuts you're looking at there. Washers on every nut and bolt to prevent scratching the new paint!



    Allen key countersunk bolts



    And more of the same.



    More hardware.



    As you guys know I got an alarm system with all the fancy features like auto window-up and remote boot release.



    Remote boot release installed.



    The cable runs through to the lock mechanism and I piggy backed it onto the stock boot release cable.



    Keeping the wiring tidy. The red wire is for constant power for the boot release. Not quite done here.



    Onto the interior.



    I went ahead and did some sound deadening. Flashtac.



    Tidied up some of the cabling. Big thanks to Geoff/Justin/Ian for helping out over the weekend.



    Had to run some wiring through the door for the alarm. Neatly done.



    More tidy cable work. Once i'm done, this will all be splitloomed up.




    More in the enginebay.



    Cleaned up clutch parts.


    I thought I'd show a comparison between the ABS and non-ABS master cylinder for a 4th gen prelude.









    The ABS master cyl is 1inch. Non-ABS is 15/16ths.
    The ABS master cyl has a 12mm flare nut fitting on the front side. The Non-ABS has both 10mm fittings.

    I will be using the ABS master cyl / booster even though I have removed the ABS system.




    I also thought I'd show off this little gem. Its a genuine ProjectMu prelude brake master cylinder stopper. I've been a bit sacrilidgeous and painted it to theme it with my enginebay colours. I dont like the ProjectMu green colour.





    Expect more to happen soon as I've got until the 4th of Jan off work!

    Man seeing the dash out pics really brings back some memories. Id love to see a close up of your soldering and heatshrink work, not that i doubt the quality of your work, i just have a fettish for that sort of thing lol. Are you relocating the engine bay fuse box at all?
