Before bolting everything back on the car, I used this on every single bolts and nuts.

I wanted to gold zinc all the bolts and nut like Will (Mugen-K), but I wasn't able to find anyone in town to do it so I soaked all the bolts in vinegar for 24hrs and then soaked it again in baking soda with water. :corn:

I see brake lines. Looking good. Recommendation, put in an EG manual steering rack. It bolts right up using the thicker bushing, and gets rid of all the nasty lines without having to loop anything.

I don't know hondas in great detail - I assume the ITR rack has a better ratio and/or tuned for better steering, though? Switching to the EG rack may make it handle like bass boat, possibly unless its handled in the pump somehow.

Good work, Chen. Seems like an all-out build. Now, if it was me, I would have kept the ITR bone stock as that's almost a rarer to find nowadays, but this is still a fantastic build!

Thanks KC, that was my plan at first but I'm now planning to keep this car for a long time. so, I figure why not make it the way I want. Plus I recently acquired another Stock R.

The ITR rack may have a better ratio, but without the power assist, it loses a lot of its effectiveness. The other way to go is an aftermarket gearset for the manual rack. I can't remember who it is that makes one, maybe Gabe can chime in, as I am pretty sure he may know.

I think quaife quick ratio kit is what you are talking about. I don't mind looped rack with a breather at all. It's not really that bad.

I did a comparison between my Hardrace camber kit and my buddy club P1. In terms of quality, you can definitely see the difference.

My most recent order of Honda parts was 90% bolts for my new setup, and I spent over $800. Probably $600 was bolts. So one can only guess with some other custom bolts thrown in there.
