Drives me bonkers when people uses this button as a reply button rather than for its intended purpose of quoting. Makes threads tons longer when people repost large items like a series of photos.

Are people not aware of it, or is there some reason that I am unaware of to requote 14 photos when they are posting a reply? Am I just missing some purpose or is it the other way around and other people simply don't realize that there are two buttons?
 
i feel the same. quote 14 photos just to say. "i like that" at the end. what is the point of quoting all those photos? we understand you are referring to those photos. no need to quote. the thing is, not only 1 person did it, go to page 2 and someone else did it AGAIN.. no wonder the page fill up fast, and you find yourself staring at the same photos over, and over, and over again.

people need to stop quoting photos.. if you like a specific photo within that quote, please delete all and keep that specific one you are referring to.

And that pretty much sums up the detail part of my build. I was extremely satisfied with the results!
A few weeks later, I put the car on the lift to address the oil pan leak... Upon removal of the pan, I was extremely surprised at how clean the pick-up was. Not a single bit of evidence of sludge anywhere!!!!

So I changed the gasket along with a fresh motor oil + filter change, and since I had my hands in the mud already, I also changed the transmission fluid with the Factory Honda MTF...

So approximately a week ago, I began my latest engine maintenance/preventative maintenance project. I Literally purchased over $2,000 worth of gaskets, oil seals, including the timing belt, water pump, fuel filter, etc. I started by removing the valve cover gaskets and intake manifold cover, and I sent them over to a local powder-coating shop(G.S.D. in Keyport, NJ) to get them done in NSX-R wrinkle red :biggrin:. I haven't received the head covers yet, but I've seen their work before and am pretty confident that I'll be satisfied with the results. Since then I have removed the old belt (which was still in "like new" condition!), removed all of the cams, replaced the water pump, replaced the crank seal (which had no signs of leakage), cleaned both heads to prepare it for the hondabond and new seals, and I also cleaned out all of the cam holders and bridges.
Here are some pics of the valve covers off..

I am currently awaiting on some o-rings from acura to re-install the cams, a new oil pressure sender, and also the valve adjustment tools should be arriving sometime this week.. I was bored today so I took off the spool valves, and replaced the inner o-ring/filter.

Long cat agrees, quoting dozens of pictures is ridiculous.
 
Holy long cat, you stole my meme! I was going to repost my infamous log cat post from the delete thread! (Picture links are now broken, but you infer from text) Great minds.... :smile:

Great minds indeed. :biggrin:

Funny thing is I searched the delete thread looking for your long cat post for 20 min. and couldn't find it. I was getting very annoyed, but Google came through in the end.

Lol, yeah I actually spent about 30 minutes trying to find that darn thread. Passed it once because the picture links were broken. But it was a great way to rehash some of the great past posts in that thread. By far one of my favs here on Prime. :smile:

Oh man, seeing the complaints about quoting, and then suddenly seeing hundreds of quoted pictures and seeing how tiny my scroll bar was just cracked me up. Very well done. Loading these threads is why I have 16GB of ram.

Matt drove this car daily and maintained it properly with many service records, but the paint was in poor condition even though he garage kept it. The front bumper needed paint, and so did the two side mirrors, but other than that, the rest of the paint is original and needed a good amount of tlc. Motor-wise, all of the major services were taken care of at 105k (timing belt, water pump, etc.) but it had minor leaks (oil pan gasket mostly and rear valve cover gasket). This is what the car looked like before I took ownership.

So I changed the gasket along with a fresh motor oil + filter change, and since I had my hands in the mud already, I also changed the transmission fluid with the Factory Honda MTF...

So approximately a week ago, I began my latest engine maintenance/preventative maintenance project. I Literally purchased over $2,000 worth of gaskets, oil seals, including the timing belt, water pump, fuel filter, etc. I started by removing the valve cover gaskets and intake manifold cover, and I sent them over to a local powder-coating shop(G.S.D. in Keyport, NJ) to get them done in NSX-R wrinkle red :biggrin:. I haven't received the head covers yet, but I've seen their work before and am pretty confident that I'll be satisfied with the results. Since then I have removed the old belt (which was still in "like new" condition!), removed all of the cams, replaced the water pump, replaced the crank seal (which had no signs of leakage), cleaned both heads to prepare it for the hondabond and new seals, and I also cleaned out all of the cam holders and bridges.
Here are some pics of the valve covers off..

Hey guys, this is my first post ever here on Prime, but have always been a huge fan and look forward to many posts from here on out. Let me start out by saying I purchased a Berlina Black/Black 91' 5 speed from Matt, a fellow member here on prime, u00mem91. I purchased the car from him with 168k miles out in Ohio and drove it back here to NJ with the intent to ship it overseas and keep it there at my beach house. Since then, I have decided to keep it here and restore it back to showroom shape. Well, as close as possible I should say. When I picked up the car, it was in this condition.
http://www.nsxprime.com/forum/showthread.php?t=164592
Matt drove this car daily and maintained it properly with many service records, but the paint was in poor condition even though he garage kept it. The front bumper needed paint, and so did the two side mirrors, but other than that, the rest of the paint is original and needed a good amount of tlc. Motor-wise, all of the major services were taken care of at 105k (timing belt, water pump, etc.) but it had minor leaks (oil pan gasket mostly and rear valve cover gasket). This is what the car looked like before I took ownership.
Nsxbeforehand_zps83b39e2d.jpg

Upon getting the car back to my shop, I immediately began stripping it apart and preparing to fully detail the car while sending the front bumper and mirrors to get painted. I even removed all of the wheel wells.

The rear main seal was also bone dry.

So I changed the gasket along with a fresh motor oil + filter change, and since I had my hands in the mud already, I also changed the transmission fluid with the Factory Honda MTF...

So approximately a week ago, I began my latest engine maintenance/preventative maintenance project. I Literally purchased over $2,000 worth of gaskets, oil seals, including the timing belt, water pump, fuel filter, etc. I started by removing the valve cover gaskets and intake manifold cover, and I sent them over to a local powder-coating shop(G.S.D. in Keyport, NJ) to get them done in NSX-R wrinkle red :biggrin:. I haven't received the head covers yet, but I've seen their work before and am pretty confident that I'll be satisfied with the results. Since then I have removed the old belt (which was still in "like new" condition!), removed all of the cams, replaced the water pump, replaced the crank seal (which had no signs of leakage), cleaned both heads to prepare it for the hondabond and new seals, and I also cleaned out all of the cam holders and bridges.
Here are some pics of the valve covers off..

And this is how she sits as of now. I will try to keep documenting my build, but this is my first time ever doing something like this, so please have patience with me:redface:!!!

Long cat agrees, quoting dozens of pictures is ridiculous.
