Finally got around to installing my Accord endlinks today. For some reason, committed to doing it when it was 115F (46C) out, the sun out, and the ground hotter than shit. Nothing laying a towel on the ground couldn't solve. lol
Just the links, or did you beef up the sway bar?

I swapped in an FK8 RSB a while back. Figured I'd buy the endlinks while I was placing my order for an FK8 steering wheel. lol

I know exactly what you mean. My brake rotors for my rear swap (PowerStop Slotted/Drilled) came warped last week... so of course Amazon sent replacements that arrived yesterday... that was a fun brake job. I think I lost 20 pounds in sweat and I'm dead tonight lol.

I did a solo brake bleed and they're still awfully spongy. I am gonna have a shop bleed them for me and swap the old fluid for some Motul, hopefully that problem goes away.

I did a LOT of stuff to my car the past 2 weeks... when my new wheels and tires FINALLY get here and are on the car, I plan on taking some love photos with my BB when she gets washed and waxed.

I washed my car this morning and did a quick outside detail, by the time I finished it was already 100 degrees. The worst part to me about doing car part installs or repair work in the heat is the sweat getting in my eyes. You're lying on your back under the car, trying to reach some bolt or whatever and all of a sudden you can't see! And you can't wipe your eyes with your greasy hands or greasy shirt!

Sweatbands or a hat, man. I have a Mission brand cooling gaiter I rock (or old military ballcap) when I'm doing car work in the heat. That and keep disposable shop towels nearby or in my pocket so I can clean my hand off enough to grab my dedicated sweat towel.

My 10 year old niece also likes helping me out when she can, so sometimes I have her grab me a clean paper towel or be like an OR nurse and wipe my face for me. Lol

Wheels. Finally.
  • Bought the wheels. Realized I needed hub rings.
  • Bought the hub rings. Realized I needed lug nuts.
  • Bought the lug nuts. Realized they won't fit the "lug well" on the wheel.
  • Bought more lug nuts. Realized I got COUNTERFEITS... thank you soulless fraud artist selling on Amazon...
  • Ordered more lug nuts... COVID curb side 3 day wait.
  • Then stores open, go in to buy a barbecue thing, walk buy the EXACT LUG NUTS I should have and could have bought a month ago... cancel curbside order while standing in the checkout line.
  • Pay to have rubber swapped - winter/summer rims now.
Now debating mudflaps...

I've never been a sweatband guy but maybe should try it. Hats don't seem to help, but I like your idea of sweat towels, I have used the disposable shop towels for that but not so much when I'm under the car.

I hope you get your niece something nice for being your helper.

I buy her VGK gear (she's a big fan bc of me) and I've taken her to games. She also gets mad at me when I do something to my car and she's not able to assist bc her parents have split custody, and she's usually at her mom's place when that happens.

I'll give it a month tops :p

(Nothing wrong with keeping her stock, but I know when I drove off the lot I said the same thing... and ended up buying an Injen CAI 3 days later. BTW DON'T BUY AN INJEN PRODUCT FOR THIS CAR, EVER!)

LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Let's hope for a better start, I'm not sure why they seem to struggle with that. Too hot to work on the car, but not too hot to watch the game, although I'll be watching most of it recorded because my son and DIL are coming over for dinner.
