    Default Bolts

    I got my bolts from Biglry. The Honda Bolts are cool looking - but I don't think they are super durable.


    I did shim my clutch .075 which is middle of the road. Have a good in/lb torque wrench on hand - a beam type works just fine. Don't forget Exhaust Gaskets.


    My steels were just fine at 3k miles. You could see the pressure plate slip marks the best. The dimpled steels Honda uses mask the slip a little. Your mainly wanting to stay away from any (blue or blackened) hot spots or complete disk issues on the steels. Scuffing won't bring them back. The metal at those spots isn't like the rest of the surface anymore - think very hard and soft. If you have just light marking on the steels your likely gonna be fine. I had a good used set of steels ready to go just in case.

    I have to admit I have not grabbed air with my front end yet, but I can imagine it was a seat clinching moment..... Maybe a joyous well placed couple of explatives?

    I used the Hondabond. Man that stuff is runny. Little will do you. Next time I may go to something else.

    However, it does setup very nice and cleans up well.
