In Topic: Update 2022: 14th Annual Road Trip 1987 Honda Crx - Dallas To Destin

ROAD TRIP 14th ANNUAL 3 of 3.    DALLAS to DENVER.   1521 miles.   Over 6000 miles between the three road trips this year.

Caught the sunset minutes before it went down.   Raton Pass just over the boarder from New Mexico.

 

1522 miles.  Uneventful.  Delayed trip a day to let the snow covered roads melt away.   Drove days this trip to ensure dry roads.  Cheapest gas $2.69 in TX.  Most expensive $3.49 in CO.   Visited fam/friends.  Got to park it in a garage.  Didnt drive anywhere while I was there

I’m loving it.  Getting older/blinde.   New cars w HID’s really highlight our dim lights.

 

Cant wait to see ur project on the road!

The plug wire holder closest to the oil cap broke off last year.   While I was at the yards this summer,I looked for replacements.  Most were broken.  Grabbed a good one like in the upper left.   Used a knife/dremmel to shape it close to the new one in the bottom right.  Sanded the plastic w 1000 grit to polish back the shine.  Upper right finished product.  Not perfect, but good enough for a DD

This is a frame grab off my phones video.  Took this somewhere in Missouri/Illinois during the middle of the night.  Low beams w sylvania silver stars.  I had replaced the passenger headlight.  And straighten the drivers headlight as it overlapped the passenger.  Got pretty decent spread for the oe design.  I’d guess twice the lighting as it was before.

This is a few minutes later w the floggers on.   Silver stars.   Really fills the road.  Helps me see the deer and other animals on the road sides.  Much better for my road trips

 

 

more to come after denver.  Oil is changed.  Just hoping in w tools/parts and go.
