Part of the fun: engine in, engine out, engine in, engine out.
This time to get the castor rod mounts tacked in, rear engine mount tacked together too.

Is it just me, there is something about Honda engines that makes them "look the goods". 8)

With a great deal of difficulty.

Do you plan on repainting the rocker cover?

Yep, painting it red once everything is done. I have another one that I have stripped back that has "VTEC" and Honda on it still. Not sure which one I'll use yet. Branding or no branding....

this is so fantastic, what are you doing for the rear mount or the torque mounts?

it also looks like there is a bit or positive camber on the front.
