    Hey Chuck~~
    very slow progress, but at least progress!!! Now I see why so many K1 builders might have given up on their build at some point [a lot harder than my F355 build for sure!!!]. Check out my link to the build pictures; I posted over 30 new pix from this weekend. Got the body on and the muffler's bracket located this past weekend, so on to installing all that Acura TL wiring [3 fuse boxes in all!!!] in the K1.
    Hope to fire it up in a few weeks. Will post a video .......
    Later........ Bob

        Hey Chuck--
        finally finished all the TL wiring revisions/extensions/deletions & put battery power to the systems yesterday [my birthday too] ..........it STARTED on the first crank-over once the fuel pump primed/pressurized the new SS lines; used the OEM TL dash to check out the dash wiring before I graft a 2001 Civic Si gauge setup onto it next week!
        ......... this V6 sounds pretty sweet even using the OEM K1 muffler!!!! filling the cooling system today & trying to get the air out of the ups & downs of the pipes the way I ran them [outside of the cockpit like the factory now does I believe!!]. very pleased that it all seems to be coming together after only 11 months of full-time working on the car!!!
        posted VIDEOS of the engine running on my Photobucket site [see my earlier post for the link.......

            Just done polishing-out the clear coat paint on the hood... so took the car down the block & shot a few vids; see them on my build site >>> http://s47.photobucket.com/albums/f180/duxdenver/index
            This Acura V6 runs great & pretty [email protected]%n fast ... can't wait to get it titled & on the road [probably around spring the way I am going!]. Might make it to Carlisle, PA next summer [as well as Mid Ohio for the ALM Series in August is my current plan...].
            also posted it on YouTube >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KTbKYSN7zY
            hope you get back out to visit sometime,

              I was watching the videos moments after you posted them. :-) Great stuff!

              It would be awesome to see you out at Carlisle. I'll be there, probably with my Rx-7.

                Well I did not get to take the car back to Carlisle [not completed in time & just too far a drive so soon]... but I have been showing it at various events the last 3 months since completion! Going to another show this morning close to home that should draw a lot of admirers!
                And thanks to Chuck from PA for stopping by again a few weeks back to check out the car...... he has the build-fever again I think!
                *******************
                A good day for the K-1!!!! Voted "MOST LIKELY TO GET STOPPED BY THE COPS" trophy of all some-150 cars in the show!!!! Just what I DON'T want to happen........ the wrong attention!??! But fun times; many people appreciating the car.......... see my build pix link for the latest!

                  I really wish you were closer. The only guy close to me is Dave with the Race Apeel K1 but that guy won't even return my calls or e-mails.

                  Great job on showing the car. Enjoy it! You worked hard and deserve it.

                    Bob, It was great to see the finished car and even better to be the first passenger. Next time im out I will stop again to check on your work.
